A Year in Hebrews: Day 1


This past year I wrote out the whole book of Luke. I was a bit shocked to discover that writing out the text by hand took way longer than I had anticipated. It made me realize that I typically have my eyes on the Bible and my mind on the clock. Reading the text slowly, allowed me to notice things I had never seen before, consider things I never considered before, and question things I never questioned before. It was a great way to sit more closely to Jesus and contemplate His teachings.

From Luke I moved to the Book of Hebrews. There was something about sitting at Jesus' feet and watching His ministry in Luke, that prepped my heart to read the Book of Hebrews with new eyes. The writer of Hebrews so magnificently pulls back the veil so we can gaze at the glory of Jesus. While Jesus was on Earth, His glory was hidden to the crowd, teachers of the law, and only later revealed to the disciples. In Luke, we sit on hills, in houses, and walk on dusty roads. In Hebrews, we're standing next to His heavenly throne.

After reading through Hebrews, I realized there was so much more that I couldn't grasp in one sitting. Hebrews is such a remarkable book that I decided I had to find a way to slow down. There are just too many treasures to discover, and I want to discover and contemplate as many as possible.

My goal (the title gives it away) is to study the Book of Hebrews for a year. Of course, I can spend a lifetime in Hebrews, but for a person who tends to rush things, an entire year in one book sounds like a long time.

As I dive into Hebrews, I'll use some exegetical tools to better understand the text. Back in the day, I took some Biblical Exegesis classes. I learned Biblical Hebrew, Biblical Greek, and methods of interpreting the Bible. That was about ten years ago, and I'll be honest, I'm a little rough around the edges. I'll be cracking open some Intro to Biblical Greek textbooks, and leaning on Bible Hub for translation help. It'll be fun! I can’t wait to see Jesus a little more clearly through this study.

I hope you can join in on the journey and be encouraged with your own study. Please feel free to send me an email if there is something I post that you have a question about or would like to discuss. We learn about God through His Word, and our understanding of His Word comes through study, prayer, and community.


God bless!
