Welcome to the 2017– 2018 Presbyterian Women Bible study “Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Hebrews”. In nine monthly lessons, we’ll explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community. The community for which the letter was written interacts, in a sense, with all communities of which we are a part, as we bring these groups with us wherever we go. This ever-present “great cloud of witnesses”(Heb. 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as we “run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (Heb. 12:1b–2). Join us!
