Hebrews for Advent

If a guy can have a favorite book of the Bible, mine would be Hebrews. In an effort to strengthen faltering believers, the author of Hebrews thoroughly examines the person and work of Jesus Christ. To give them strength, he gives them Christ.

For several years now, Hebrews has been my anchor throughout Advent. It is the perfect companion to celebrate the Incarnation and it strengthens me for the year to come. This year I would love to jump in with some friends.

So if you
-are weary and need a boost of strength (Neh. 8:10),
-need something to stimulate your study,
-would like to add 5-10 minutes to your current reading plan,
here is the plan that will start on Wednesday and go through December 26th:

December 9th - Hebrews 1:1-14
December 10th - Hebrews 2:1-3:4
December 11th - Hebrews 3:5-4:2
December 12th - Hebrews 4:3-13
December 13th - Hebrews 4:14-5:6
December 14th - Hebrews 5:7-6:12
December 15th - Hebrews 6:13-7:3
December 16th - Hebrews 7:4-17
December 17th - Hebrews 7:18-8:7
December 18th - Hebrews 8:8-9:10
December 19th - Hebrews 9:11-28
December 20th - Hebrews 10:1-18
December 21st - Hebrews 10:19-11:3
December 22nd - Hebrews 11:4-31

  1. So you'll post discussion questions each day at 5am for that day's readings? Just clarifying. I like this idea!

  2. Yes! Just 1 or 2 to create some focus or tension for the reading. Thanks! I am looking forward to it!
