Jacob: Faith to Worship While Dying (Hebrews 11:21)
Faith is seen in Jacob in his dying moments when he blesses Joseph’s sons and worships God. An exposition of Hebrews 11:21.
Isaac: Faith to Confer the Blessings (Hebrews 11:20)
Isaac believed in the promises given to his father Abraham. Though intending the blessing for Esau, Isaac blessed Jacob conferring the promises of the Abrahamic Covenant upon him and his descendants. Overruled by God’s providence, Isaac’s faith blessed the one God intended all along. An exposition of Hebrews 11:20 and selected Old Testament passages.
The Trial and Triumph of Abraham’s Faith (Hebrews 11:17-19)
Abraham's faith is demonstrated in his obedience to God‘s command. Offering Isaac showed the depth of Abraham’s faith and his unflinching trust in God’s promises. An exposition of Hebrews 11:17.
Abraham: Faith that Passes the Test (Hebrews 11:17-9; Genesis 22)
The next example of faith is Abraham’s obedience to God’s command to offer Isaac. We begin in Hebrews 11 and then go to Genesis 22 to get the historical context. We see Abraham’s obedience and faithfulness, and ultimately the grace of God in providing a sacrifice. An exposition of Genesis 11:17 and Genesis 22.
The Patriarchs: Faith for a City, Part 2 (Hebrews 11:13-16)
Though they would die without ever seeing their promises fulfilled, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob did not abandon the promise or disobey the Lord by returning to the land they had left. They remained in the Promised Land, faithfully living in expectation of that day when the Lord would fulfill His word just as He had promised. An exposition of Hebrews 11:13-16.
The Patriarchs: Faith for a City, Part 1 (Hebrews 11:13-16)
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob died without receiving the promises, yet with eyes of faith, they saw them while fixing their hope and confidence on the future fulfillment in the Resurrection. An exposition of Hebrews 11:13-16.
Faithful preaching, a lot of meat...will challenge you!
Jim Osman is a fantastic preacher and this series in Hebrews is already gold. Each sermon is jam-packed with clear, in-depth exegesis of the text as well as conviction. Jim's great sense of humor, care for his flock and passionate love for the Word bring a great balance to the sermons, making them not merely intellectual theology points, but very pressing, memorsble and applicable messages. Thank you KCC! Jim's a hidden gem. Better than 99% of "Reformed" preachers out there.
