Along with our verse-by-verse study, we will have the opportunity to extensively correlate enlightening and strengthening passages from other
portions of Scripture.

Hebrews (2 credits) NT369

The Book of Hebrews is divided into two sections: first, the superiority of the Son in His person and work (1:1-10:18); and second, the practical application of the superiority of the Son in the lives of believers (10:19-13:25).
