Hebrews: The Greatness of Christ

Promised Inheritance


  • Inheritance Requires Death
  • Cleansing Requires Death
  • Receiving the Promised Inheritance  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 9:15-22. Have you ever received an inheritance? What were the circumstances?
  2. What is the “promised eternal inheritance” mentioned in verse 15? Consider Romans 4:13-24 to help understand the “promise.”
  3. Why is death required for an inheritance? Why is death required to receive the inheritance promised by God?
  4. How is death related to cleansing? Why is shed blood the only means of forgiveness? Couldn’t God forgive sins without blood?
  5. Who received the promise of eternal inheritance? What is calling? What is our responsibility within the call?  

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 9:15 Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, since a death has occurred that redeems them from the transgressions committed under the first covenant. (ESV)
