The Sunday evening lesson from March 1, 2020
A Study Of Christ: Jesus’ Metaphorical Names (2) (Hebrews 4:8-13)Phillip Stuckey, March 1, 2020
Part of the A Study of Christ series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Just as the person and work of the Father are described in Scripture through metaphors so it is with Christ. In the OT, Jesus is pictured as the Seed of Woman, the Servant of the Lord, the Righteous Branch and the Root of Jesse. In this lesson, we want to consider several of the metaphorical names of Christ in the Gospels to help better understand and appreciate His person and work.

Hebrews 4:8–13 (Listen)
8 For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on. 9 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10 for whoever has entered God's rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.
11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
