MESSAGE - Pastor Dale Thiele

Hebrews: The Greatness of Christ

Blueprints for Meeting with God


  • The Christocentric Design of the Tabernacle
  • The Christocentric Ministry of the Priests
  • The Effectual Impact of Christ  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 9:1-14. What catches your attention from this passage? In light of the whole letter to the Hebrews, what is the author doing at this point?
  2. What do we learn about the earthly tabernacle? How does its design and arrangement point to Christ?
  3. What do we learn about the ministry of the priests? How does this ministry point to Christ?
  4. Consider the comparison in verses 13-14. What are the similarities? What are the differences? Other than Christ (and the OT sacrificial system) what do we turn to looking for a cleansed conscience?
  5. What are the practical implications of verse 14?  

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God. (ESV)
