Today I begin a series of sermons on the Letter to the Hebrews. This letter can be somewhat daunting due to the familiarity with the old Testament temple ritual which it presupposes, but through it all there is one constant theme: Christ is better than anything which has gone before. He completes it, sums it up, brings it to its planned conclusion. Only in the light of the coming of Christ can the Old Testament be properly understood, as Christ is the summation and completion of all that the Old Testament looked forward to.
