Christ's Better Rest

Christ’s Better Rest
(Hebrews 4:1-11)
I. The Book of Hebrews sets forth the superiority of Christ over angels, Moses, Levi and Joshua, etc.
A. Joshua of old did what Moses could not do: he brought a redeemed people into their God-
given inheritance. c/w ROM 8:3-4; GAL 3:10-13.
B. Joshua is spelled “Jesus” in ACT 7:45; HEB 4:8. Both names mean, “Jehovah saves” or
“Jehovah is salvation.” ISA 43:11 c/w MAT 1:21; 1JO 3:5.
C. As good and great as Joshua was, Paul shows the Hebrew Christians that Jesus is greater.
