This session’s central truth is: Jesus is our Holy undefiled Savior who lives to intercede for us. Read this blog post from The Gospel Coalition where Gavin Ortland and D.A. Carson discuss Christ’s intercession for believers that is specifically referenced in Hebrews 7:25. Then take some time to reflect on their discussion and answer these questions:
- What did you learn from Ortland and Carson’s discussion that you hadn’t previously considered?
- Do you agree with their views and thoughts? Why or why not? Focus on whether this aligns with what Scripture says.
- Read the words mentioned from Charles Wesley’s Arise, My Soul Arise and reflect on the third stanza and the atoning work of Christ on the cross and its connection with Christ’s intercession for us.
