15: Hold Fast to Our Confidence (Heb -39)

The Basics


We have concluded the doctrinal section of Hebrews, and we now begin to study the section on practical applications. The author has effectively demonstrated that Jesus Christ is our great High Priest who has fulfilled God’s redemptive plan once for all. Now he shows us how we ought to conduct ourselves in view of the great salvation we have received.

Key Verse
