PREFACE

 

For many years Dr. Max I, Reich was on the staff of the Extension Department of Moody Bible Institute; and in later years, a member of the faculty. Those who learned to love him through his Bible teaching ministry will rejoice to have in print this series of lessons from his pen, making known “The Glories of Christ in the Epistle to the Hebrews.”


As one of God’s chosen people, Israel, who loved the Lord Jesus as his Messiah, Dr. Reich could appreciate in a very real sense the Lord God’s message to His ancient people concerning His only begotten and well-beloved Son. By faith he beheld the glories of Christ in a measure not experienced by all who love the Lord. And now, even as he beholds His glory in the heavenly sanctuary, the testimony of his godly life and the Bible lessons which he has left continue to bear witness to the personal, moral, and official glories of Jesus, the Son of God, through whom the Father has spoken to the world.


Dr. Reich’s manuscript has been reproduced in its original form, except for the added special assignments for study, the examination questions, and such material as was required in adapting these lessons for use as a correspondence course.


May God richly bless this study of that One, by whom He hath in these last days spoken unto us.


William Culbertson
 President, Moody Bible Institute

Instructions   to Students

How to Study


1. Get ready for study.

 

a. Try to find a quiet spot free from distractions and noise. It’s much easier to concentrate on your studies if you are free from distractions. When this is not possible, then do the best you can.


b. Have a pencil with you for regular use. Underline or mark important words or passages. You’ll notice that the textbook has important words or sentences underlined, in heavy type, or in italics.


c. If possible keep a dictionary on the table where you are studying. Use it to clarify the meaning of words you do not understand.


2. Pray for God’s help. You need God’s help in order to understand what you study in the Bible and in your textbook. Before you begin each unit, bow your head in prayer and ask Him for help.


3. Study the Scripture portions at the beginning of each unit. The psalmist tells us:

“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” (Psalm 119:130).


The Bible, God’s written Word, is a “lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path” (Psalm 119:105). Consequently, the study of the Bible itself is vital.


Each unit in this course is headed with a Scripture portion. You should study all of these until they become a part of your thinking.


Here is a useful way to study these Scripture portions:


a. Read the Bible passage as if you were reading it for the first time in your life. Read each sentence thoughtfully in order to understand precisely what it says.

 

b. Study the thought relations of each sentence in the Scripture portion. Ask yourself these questions:


- Why was each sentence written?
- How does it fit into the whole passage?
- Why was the portion written in the order given?

Make a note of interesting or puzzling relationships that you may discover.


c. Determine how this passage fits in its context. Do this by applying steps a and b (above) to the chapter or chapters in the Bible of which the Scripture portion is a part.


d. Now relate the Scripture portion to the subject to be studied. Look at the title of the lesson you are to study. Ask yourself this question:


- How does this Scripture portion amplify the lesson title?
- Outline important thoughts in the Scripture portion that are related to the title of the lesson.
- Meditate on the passage (that is, turn it over in your mind) until you understand it and until its richness has gripped your life.


e. Finally, apply the Scripture portion to yourself.


What has the passage taught you about the glories of Christ?


How can you apply the principles, teaching, and pulse of the Scripture portion to your life and ministry?


4. Read the lesson in this textbook. You may find it helpful to read quickly in order to see the lesson as a whole.


5. Think through what you have read by using the outline or headings used to develop the lesson.


6. Read the lesson again. As you read, look up each Scripture reference listed. Study the lesson until you grasp the entire presentation.


7. Meditate on the lesson and its meaning and implications for your life. Relate the lesson to the Scripture portions that you have already studied. Determine what the teaching of this lesson should mean in your daily life. Begin now to apply these principles to yourself.


8. Now turn to the exam for this lesson and see how well you know the answers. Don’t write out the exam yet. Check it over to see what you still need to study. Now look for these answers in the lesson assigned or in your Bible. Glance through the lesson to help you find the answers to the questions that you cannot answer. Decide what the answers are and fix them firmly in your mind. It may help you to write out all of these answers on a separate sheet before you take the exam.


9. Check-up time. Have you studied the assigned Scripture and the corresponding lesson in this textbook? Can you answer the exam questions? Then you are ready to take the exam for the lesson.


10. We recommend the King James, or Authorized, Version of our English Bible. A suggested list of books for optional, additional reading and reference is included at the end.

How Long Should It Take?


You are the best judge of how much time to allow for each lesson. Students vary in their speed in studying. In study by the correspondence method each individual student can plan his studies so that he can proceed at his own rate of speed.
