Topic: To Everything Turn, Turn Turn

Going deeper questions (Life Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • Regarding movement, what was the difference between the Tabernacle and the Temple? How do the two relate to us and our walk with God?
  • Discuss 1 Chronicles 25:1 -> Does your life sing forth God’s power and authority?
  • Explain the difference between a priest who comes through the succession of Aaron and Jesus who come by an oath (Psalm 110).
  • How is Jesus a better High Priest and Temple? Do our lives reflect our belief in this?

Message outline

Title:     To Everything Turn, Turn Turn

Series: Hebrews: Humanity’s Only Hope

Text: Key Passage-> Hebrews 7:15-8:2

Main Idea: In Jesus we have arrived; Let’s live like it!


  1. Seasons of Change (7:15-19)
  • The Rhythm of Succession (Vv.15-19)
    • God through Moses gives direction for the Priests during Tabernacle Era (Traveling toward)
      • See -> Exodus 28:36-29:21
    • God through David gives direction for the Priests during the Temple Era (Resting in)
      • See -> Numbers 4:1-3 / 1 Chronicles 23:24-25:31
    • God in Christ brings a better hope without succession! (7:19)


  1. By an Oath Jesus is Appointed (7:20-24)
  • Those within the Levitical Priesthood, (Aaron) were appointed by genealogy (birth / death) and thus a succession was born (many of v.23).
    • See Numbers 20:22-29
  • Jesus comes by an Oath; not Levitical succession
    • See Psalms 110:1-7


III. A Better High Priest for a Better Temple (7:25-8:2)

  • Jesus: A Better High Priest
    • His Salvation is thorough / complete (tabernacle / temple) allowing us to draw near to God (7:25)
    • His Sacrifice was for us, not Himself (Vv.26-27) and His appointment is by God’s Oath to His Son (v.28) after the manner of Melchizedek!
  • Jesus: A Better Temple
    • This has always been God’s plan- the former was a passing shadow as the greater has arrived / arriving!
      • See -> Revelation 21:22-27 / Ephesians 2:22
