Hebrews: The Greatness of Christ

There Remains a Rest 

  • The Wilderness We Find Ourselves In
  • The Rest Promised
  • The Means to Enter the Rest

 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 4:1-13. The word “rest” is used multiple times in chapters 3 & 4? To what does it refer? There is more than one answer.
  2. The writer presents the Exodus generation as a parallel example for the church. We have been redeemed out of slavery. We have a promised “rest” awaiting us. What about this intermediary time? How is this time like the “wilderness”?
  3. Consider the commands of verse 1 and 11. How are they similar? Different? What do they call us to do?
  4. What means have been provided for us to help us enter into God’s rest? What role does the “word of God” play?

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 4:9-10 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. (ESV)
