Hebrews 12 is a vital chapter in the book. In it we get a clearer sense of the challenges they faced, the persecution they were experiencing for Christ’s sake, and the temptation they had to overcome by God’s grace. The pastor invokes three important images and categories for understanding the nature of the Christian life: running, kingdom, and covenant. They might not seem to be related but they are. In this chapter we also see how the pastor to these Christians related the old and new covenants, where he finds continuity and discontinuity. David VanDrunen, is the Robert B. Strimple Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Ethics at WSC and we sat down to work through this passage together. Take a listen to the latest episode of Office Hours.
