Many years ago, I read somewhere (I think it was in Joseph Dillow’s book The Reign of the Servant Kings) about the revolutionary lectures by Zane Hodges on how to understand the book of Hebrews. Dillow’s book was printed in 1992, and so Zane’s lectures must have been given at least twenty years ago. When I read this, I wanted to find out what Zane had said, and tried in vain to get a copy of these lectures.
When I worked at the Grace Evangelical Society, we must have received requests almost monthly for these recordings, but nobody, not even Zane, knew how to get a copy of them.
Well, finally, through a friend of a friend, some traded e-mails, and the wonders of the United States Postal Service, I got my hands on these tapes, and have digitized them for your listening pleasure! The recordings are very poor, but what can you expect from tapes that are about 20 years old?
I’ve already listened to them, and while I don’t agree with everything Zane says, I kind of doubt he would still agree with himself either. But if you have ever struggled with how to understand the book of Hebrews, Zane’s lectures will send you off in the right direction.
There are eight lectures, and I will try to provide one or two per week until all are available, so keep checking back!
His first lecture is called Never Give Up and is based on Hebrews 1:1-4, 13.
Here’s the rest:
Part 1: Hebrew 1:1-4, 13
Part 2: Hebrews 1:6-9; 3:1, 14; 12:28
Part 3: Hebrews 2:5-13, 18; 12:1-2
Part 4: Hebrews 3:7-19; 4:9-11
Part 5: Hebrews 1:13-14; 4:14-16; 5:5-10; 7:24-25
Part 6: Hebrews 5:12-14; 6:4-8, 11-12
Part 7: Hebrews 10:19-25, 28-31, 35-38
Part 8: Hebrews 11:1-2, 4-7
