We have noticed in our studies that the book of Hebrews is a sermon given to the Christians in the first century to not give up their faith in the face of the difficulties and rejection from society. Now we have further noticed that the way the preacher of this book is encouraging faith is by showing them great and important truths about Jesus. The point of the book is not a concern that these Christians might return to Judaism. The point is that the faith we need to hold on and to remain strong in the Lord comes from having a clearer, fuller vision of Jesus. In particular to our theme, we are going to look at the power of the cross and why we need to keep near the cross in our lives. This brings our attention to Hebrews 2:5-9.
