New College Class: Incomparable Christ

Our college and young adult ministry is beginning a new summer class called Incomparable Christ. Based on the book Life Lessons from Hebrews by Max Lucado, this class will be a study of the book of Hebrews. Recent high school graduates, college age students and young adults are invited to come explore an amazing book of the Bible that encourages us to stay strong in our commitment to Jesus amidst intense cultural pressure to back away from our faith.

About the Book: Life Lessons from Hebrews

The Jewish believers were torn between their new faith in Jesus and their old ways rooted in Old Testament routines and rituals. They were tempted to go back to their familiar life that seemed “good enough.” But the author of Hebrews shows that when Jesus came, “the best got better.” He skillfully compares these believers’ old ways and their new faith, arguing that Christ is better in every way. He focuses on Jesus, his effective ministry, and his ultimate sacrifice, showing us that absolutely nothing compares to our incomparable Christ.

The Life Lessons with Max Lucado series brings the Bible to life in twelve lessons filled with intriguing questions, inspirational stories, and poignant reflections to take you deeper into God’s Word. Each lesson includes an opening reflection, background information, an excerpt of the text (from the New International and New King James versions), exploration questions, inspirational thoughts from Max, and a closing takeaway for further reflection. The Life Lessons series is ideal for use in both a small-group setting or for individual study. (description courtesy of Amazon.com).
