Last year was the first time in almost 20 years that I wasn’t in a weekly Bible study. I have to admit, I got used to the extra hours in my week. It allowed me time to settle in to my new job as an editor at TGC, continue my work at my church, and begin writing a new book. In fact, as Bible study started up again this fall, I began wondering if I had time to fit it in this year.

However, as soon as I went to the first study, I knew why I needed to be there. It’s easy in the busyness of doing ministry to forget why it’s so important.CHIANGMAI, THAILAND, March 17,2015. Reading The New Internationa

Hebrews is a book that reminds us on every page: Jesus is Better. While I know in my mind he’s better, I’m prone to forget that truth as I go about my day. I’m tempted to want an easier life, cherish my sin, and believe a better set of circumstances is the key to my happiness. Patiently and faithfully, the writer of Hebrews sets me straight, pointing me to the truth: There’s nothing better than knowing Jesus.

You may already have a Bible study you’re attending at church or in your community—that’s wonderful (and the best way to study in my opinion). However, if for some reason you’ve missed a sign up and don’t have a study, I invite you to join me in studying Hebrews.

Here’s the good news about this study: it’s free, it’s online, and it’s available every week. I also happen to trust the teacher (most of the time . . . he doesn’t like cilantro, so there are legitimate concerns).

You can find the videos and handouts for the study here. Below, I’ve put the first video and handout, starting at the point where he begins giving the overview and outline of the book. The first actual lesson in Hebrews is in Week 2.

I hope this study might encourage your heart and mind as it already has mine.

    Thank you for recommending this! I’ve been looking for a Bible study locally but none have appealed to me. Hebrews is one of my favorite books and online fits my schedule. Thanks again!

    Good news! But I just started the Romans video study a few months ago. Love it. Thank you so much for making these studies available. I teach kids on Sunday Morning and Youth on Wednesday night so Adult Bible Study time for me with a teacher is limited to the occasional topical studies done a couple of times a year outside Sunday School. These studies with Dr. Kruger are filling a big gap in my life. Bless you !

      I enjoyed studying Romans so much as well. I’m so glad these are helpful!
