Heir of David’s House
- The Whole Bible in Ten Pages
- Hebrews 1.5
- Matthew Raley
Since the first days of Christianity, there has been pressure on Christians to soften the edges of their beliefs, to censor themselves to appease the surrounding culture.
Early Hebrew Christians suffered persecution from both their fellow Jews and from Rome, whose imperial religion allowed its subjects to keep their gods and their beliefs so long as they made no claims of supremacy.
In this week’s message from Pastor Raley, Christ’s claim to the throne of David confronts imperial religion and puts people, then and now, in a place of decision.
