Jesus is Lord—not just in some watered-down, vaguely spiritual way. He’s not just Lord of our hearts... He’s Lord of a new, global Canaan.
Bloody sacrifices, esoteric rites, sacred buildings—could these phrases fit the picture that comes to mind when you hear the phrase “Old Testament?” Are you bewildered by the myriad of battles, blood, and strange laws of the first two-thirds of the Bible?
You’re not alone.
In the book of Hebrews, we discover something important: The Old Testament is a Christian book, and what that means is that the entire Bible—and the entire story of history itself—is a story of Christ and his new creation. The author to Hebrews sets out to give the Christian Church her New Testament Deuteronomy—marching orders for the invasion of and life in a new, global Canaan under King Jesus.
