Gain an understanding of the old and new covenants. Learn to place your hope in Jesus. Video Sessions: Session One: Introduction (41:54)--Jen highlights some of the main themes we believe the author of Hebrews was aiming to inspire: confidence in the faith, steadfastness in the midst of difficulty, and assurance that Jesus is better than anything the world has to offer. Session Two: Better than Angels (47:19)--Jen begins to unpack the idea of Christ's supremacy over all things, with particular emphasis on His supremacy over angels and His identification of God's people as His brothers and sisters. What a blessing we have in the brotherhood of Christ, who withstood temptation on earth and sympathizes with our weakness. Session Three: Better than Moses (39:26)--The author of Hebrews continues to show us that Jesus Christ is superior over all things. In this session, Jen teaches us how the author took on the looming figure of Moses to demonstrate how Christ is even better than one of the largest figures in Jewish history. Session Four: Better High Priest (43:54)--In Jewish tradition, the earthly high priest occupied the highest "strata" of society. Jen breaks down how the author of Hebrews introduces his original readers to Christ as an even better High Priest--One who has passed through the heavens and sympathized with humanity's weaknesses (Heb. 14:14-15). Session Five: Better Promise (37:30)--the author of Hebrews reminds his readers to move beyond immaturity to advance to the deeper matters of faith. Jen discusses that as we deepen our faith, we can better see the steadfast promise Christians have in Christ as our firm foundation. Session Six: Better Hope and Covenant (32:31)--The mysterious Melchizedek enters the picture in this week of study. As Jen breaks down the story of Melchizedek in Hebrews 7-8, we are reminded that the old is gone and the new is infinitely better. Session Seven: Better Tabernacle (31:49)--Jen talks about the Old Testament tabernacle and covenant. The old covenant was sealed with the blood of goats and sheep and the new is sealed with the blood of Christ. In the blood of Christ, we find forgiveness of our sins. He is a better tabernacle, and He ushered in a new covenant. Session Eight: Better Sacrifice (31:49)--Jen unpacks Hebrews 10, both the warning and the challenges. In this chapter, we learn that Jesus is a better sacrifice than the sacrifices of old. His death is once and for all. The author of Hebrews also challenges us with several "Let us" statements, encouraging us to live out what we believe. Session Nine: Consider the Faithful (44:44)--Hebrews 11 features the roll call of the faithful and is likely the best-known chapter in the book of Hebrews. Here, we learn more about this intentional and organized list, and why faithful yet flawed leaders such as David, Rahab, Gideon, and more were featured in this biblical hall of faith. Session Ten: Run the Race (49:25)--In the grand finale of the study, Jen details the final exhortation of the Book of Hebrews. In this last session, we learn to focus less on ourselves, and more on loving others and glorifying the name above all names.

Explanation of the Book:

Moms are under so. much. pressure. Pressure that weighs us down and threatens to wipe us out. Are you ready for relief? Mom Set Free will empower you to parent in the confidence of God's grace and to experience the freedom you were created for. We moms are told that we have to get it all right so our kids turn out right. We’re told that their entire futures are riding on our ability to perfectly orchestrate their lives. And we’re told that the strength of their faith hinges on ours. And we begin to believe that if we just try hard enough, we can actually “be enough.” These impossible standards leave us stuck in worry, anger, guilt, comparison, and shame. Jeannie Cunnion gets it. And in Mom Set Free she reveals how the Good News of the Gospel empowers us to live—and parent—in the freedom for which Christ has set us free. Jeannie invites us to journey alongside her as we learn to: * Lay down what God has not asked us to carry so we can thrive in what He has. * Embrace our significance in our children’s lives in light of God’s sovereignty. * Trust God with the children He has entrusted to us. * Receive God’s grace so we can reflect God’s heart to our kids. It’s time to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and reclaim the wonder and adventure of parenting.

Our limitations are by design. We were never meant to be God. But at the root of every sin is our rebellious desire to possess attributes that belong to God alone. Calling us to embrace our limits as a means of glorifying God's limitless power, Jen Wilkin invites us to celebrate the freedom that comes when we rest in letting God be God.

Explanation of the Book:

New from the Best-Selling Author of Women of the Word Christianity isn’t about following rules, it’s about a relationship. The rise in popularity of this phrase coincides with a growing disinterest and misunderstanding regarding the role of God’s life-giving, perfect law in the Christian life. Rather than the source of joy it was intended to be, the law is viewed as an angry god’s restrictions for a rebellious people. In Ten Words to Live By, Jen Wilkin presents a fresh biblical look at the Ten Commandments, showing how they come to bear on our lives today as we seek to love God and others, to live in joyful freedom, and to long for that future day when God will be rightly worshiped for eternity. Learn to see the law of God as a feast for your famished soul, open to anyone who calls on the name of the Lord.
