Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
An aside into Hebrews
It has been some time since I made a post to this blog. I have had subjects for at least three separate posts swirling inside and it is time to publish again.
My intent for this post was to take a look at the non-Pauline epistles in the New Testament (not already touched on in prior posts) before tackling Paul directly in the next. In the writing my focus has narrowed. My family has been reading the book of Hebrews together. As I have pondered…Continue
