I am so thankful for God’s Word, in our own language, that encourages, teaches, edifies, and instructs us. As the “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) Word of the Creator, it really is “living and powerful” (Hebrews 4:12) in written or spoken form. Well, our staff recently had the privilege of hearing a recitation of the entire book of Hebrews during our morning staff meeting.
Tim McCabe, one of our talented web developers, has memorized the entire book of Hebrews in dramatic form. He says of this momentous accomplishment:
I worked on it for several years. My wife, my children, and I routinely memorized just a few verses of Scripture every week as a family activity, each of us focusing on a different book of the Bible, whichever we pleased. Hebrews has been my favorite book for a long time because of its explicitly high Christology and fascinating analysis of old covenant elements in light of our great high priest, Jesus. While I was memorizing the book, it occurred to me that the author had written it much like a modern-day topical sermon, and that it would be very compelling presented just like that, perhaps even with slides displaying all of the Old Testament passages the author refers to!
Tim delivered the finished presentation, with slides, from beginning to end—all thirteen chapters—to encourage us as we started our workday. It captivated all of us. I thought I would share it to encourage you as well.
I trust the message of the book of Hebrews—that Jesus is greater and that His work is finished—will challenge and point you to Christ today.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
