Do you have a favorite singer? Can you recognize their voice even if you’re not familiar with the song? I have a friend who is a photographer. I can spot her work right away on social media. Her photos have something about them that acts as a type of signature on her work. When we examine the works of Jesus and get to know them really well, it will be easier to spot Him in places like the Old Testament Scriptures or even daily life. We The Kingdom’s song “Jesus Does” inspired me to study the works of Jesus.


Join me as we study what Jesus did, does, and will do in the book of Hebrews.


In this episode, I discuss the following:

This Week’s Challenge

Read the book of Hebrews from beginning to end. Read it several times over several days if you can. When you sit down to interact with the Scripture, look for what Jesus does in the text. You’re looking for action words — past, present, and future — to help you get to know Jesus through his works. Then, like a signature, He will be easier to spot in the Old Testament and in life.
