Our current series, on Truth for Today, is "God's help for Christians today". The series tries to answer the question "Why does it matter that Jesus is alive and in heaven?" Is this all just theoretical fancy or does the fact that Jesus is alive really matter to me? What's the significance of the resurrection? Why do the writers of the Bible bother to record the fact that Jesus is alive? The series will consider four passages in the book of Hebrews. The writer felt it necessary to remind his readers four times that Jesus is alive and seated at the right hand of God in heaven. Each week we're going to take one of those sections of Hebrews in turn and try to see what the consequences are of Jesus Christ being alive and sat down at God's right hand. Indeed it is a source of real hope for each of us.

In the latest uploaded broadcast, A High Priest in heaven, Ernie Brown continues the series, by looking at the Lord Jesus as our High Priest in heavan. From Hebrews 2:10-7:28, we are taught in detail about how the Lord's priestly grace is available to us at any time, at any place, in any situation. Hebrews 4:14-16, states "Seeing then that we have a great high priest that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God … we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
