This week we gathered our Southern teams for an end of year get together - think lots of food and prayer and Bible, in a warehouse in a field in Hampshire... We were joined for a day by our friends from Cor Deo, with Peter Mead walking us through Hebrews.
I was particularly helped by the observations on Hebrews as a sermon, and the way this makes sense of the seemingly very hard warning passages which function as transitions between the three main movements in the sermon. An exposition of Christ, in the three main movements, unpacking three main Old Testament texts, leading us from Exodus to Sanctuary to City, to the hope of being in our home town with our God.
Here's a two minute taster of Peter Mead on Hebrews:

And here's seven minutes from my talk on 'room in God' with some interference in the background.
