Participants will experience intense expositional teaching with Dr. Moo, followed by extensive track sessions exploring the many methods of exegetical Bible study.

Writing to Christians struggling to maintain zeal for Christ, the author to the Hebrews presents us a unique and moving account of the way God has provided “full and final forgiveness” for followers of Christ.


Our time will be focused on studying Hebrews 9 & 10:

  • Sunday: vss. 9:11-15 | Securing an Eternal Redemption
  • Monday: vss. 9:16-22 | Cleansed by the Blood
  • Tuesday: vss. 9:23-28 | One Priest and One Sacrifice
