Better // A Study of Hebrews

by Jen Wilkin


  • Intro/Day 1 – We expand on the idea of Christ as our high Priest | 6:26
  • Day 2 – Hebrews 7:1-10 – We see Melchizedek as a King of Righteousness | 7:46
  • Day 3 – Hebrews 7:11-19 – If the law is imperfect, then the Levitical line of Aaron is imperfect | 21:11
  • Day 4 – Hebrews 7:20-28 – Jesus’s priesthood is established with an oath from God | 32:12
  • Day 5 – Hebrews 8:1-13 – Summation of why the New Covenant is better than the Old Covenant | 44:04


In Week 6 we look at how the Old Testament figure of Melchizedek foreshadows Christ’s fulfillment as our King of Righteousness and Peace. We see that both Melchizedek and Christ are from a different priestly order than the Levitical order and that they are both Kings. With this new order, the author of Hebrews makes the argument that a new covenant was then needed through the fulfillment of Christ which nullifies the old law. Christ as our priest-king reigns forever in the better tent (heaven) and offers us a better covenant of hope based on better promises. So, therefore, it’s a continuation of the author’s argument to the original audience to stand firm because they have the better thing.
