This week we will continue reading through the book of Hebrews to discover that Jesus is better than… Therefore, we should live by faith in Him. We should have much encouragement from being in Christ since He is the author and perfecter of our faith.

How would you define faith?
Why is biblical faith important?
Why would the doctrine of justification by faith alone, not by works, be the article upon which the church stands or falls?
How might thinking of good works as worship shape how you live each day?
How did the OT saints show faith in God? Who is an encouragement to you and why?
How can OT persons be saved since they never exercised faith in Christ?
Does faith always lead to “immediate” great rewards?
What truths can you discover in Hebrews 12:1-2?
Why is it encouraging to know that Jesus is not just the author of our faith, but is the perfecter as well?
