Unless you’re Catholic, it’s pretty difficult to make heads or tails of the book of Hebrews. And even if you are Catholic it can seem a bit odd at times. But once you view it through the right lens, the teachings of Catholicism jump off the page like a 3D IMAX movie.
In fact, it’s a mini Catechism.
This is the conclusion of my great conversation with author Shane Kapler who beautifully lays out the Seven Core Beliefs of Catholics in the Epistle to the Hebrews. (His book is great!)
Among other things we’ll discuss:
- How Hebrews lays out the Catholic “plan of salvation” in 7 verses (how
- The grittiness of Jesus’ humanity and how he learned obedience through suffering
- What the famous faith “Hall of Fame” in Hebrews 11 teaches us about heaven and the communion of saints
- Why critics of Catholicism who say there’s no mention of the Eucharist in Hebrews (“so it can’t be a Catholic book”) are dead wrong
All that and more in episode 40 of the Art of Catholic. God bless and enjoy!
