This week in City Groups, we'll be looking at an big picture overview of the book of Hebrews. We will check out a some of the major passages that summarize some of the most important themes of the book. Ultimately, Hebrews is about Jesus, so we will be looking at some of the main passages that talk about who Jesus is and what he has done for us.

There is a lot of content to cram in this week. I'm very aware that you may not get through all of these passages, but I say give it a shot. Also, remember that we'll be hitting all of these in greater depth and extent later on in the semester. Basically, the outline for the discussion guide is this:

Purpose of City Groups [Community, Growth, Mission]

Background and Context of Hebrews [Jesus fulfills the Old Testament] 

Overview Passages [Hebrews 1:1-4; 7:26-28; 10:11-14; 12:1-2; 13:20-21]

What does all of this mean for our lives? [Heart & Hands]
