Receiving an Unshakeable Kingdom
Hope Sabbath School Episode 12
Added 17 Mar 2022
This study deals primarily with Hebrews 12:18–29. Here, Jesus is portrayed as the Mediator of the new covenant, and God is shown as the Judge of all. This event is contrasted with the experience of the audience of Hebrews, who have not come to Mount Sinai, something that God’s people were forbidden to touch, but to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. Mount Zion is not a place of terror but of festal gathering, for there the believers have access to God. The basis for their joyful confidence is Jesus, the Mediator of the new covenant. Mount Zion also is the place where Jesus’ dedication ceremony as King occurs (Ps. 2:6, 7; see Heb. 1:5).
