(pros Heb-rah'-yos)
(to the Hebrews)


Welcome to the Book of Hebrews class.



In this course you will study the book of Hebrews.  After a brief introduction addressing the historical arguments concerning date, authorship, to whom was it written, and canonicity, we will go on to examine the book and its teachings and comparisons concerning the New Covenant under Christ and the Old Covenant under the Mosaic Law.

How to study: Read through the textbook and look up all of the scripture references given.  Only those references that are complete with book, chapter, and verse (example- Heb 12:6-9) are required reading.  Those references giving only book and/or chapter (example- Ps ch. 21) need not be referenced and read.  Also, you need to read the book of Hebrews in the KJV, following along in the Bible as you go through the verse by verse commentary in the textbook.

SIGN-IN first for this course and mark the form "Begin" unless you have done so previously.  You do not sign in when you finish each lesson.  You only do so and mark the form "Finish" when you have completed the entire course and you are ready for the Final Test.

Download and print the COURSE RECORD FORM.  On it you will keep a record of your sign in "Begin" date because you will be required to enter it on the Sign In "Finish" form that you will submit at the end of the entire course.  You will also keep other pertinent information on that form such as date and score for each test so that you will be able to keep track of your progress through the course.

The textbook is divided into eight sections. Not more than one section may be completed each week.  Even one lesson per week and a half would be reasonable (but not required). At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test that corresponds with the section you just finished studying. All Section Tests are “open book,” which means you may use your textbook while taking the tests.

    Minimum attendance for the course is 8 weeks.
      Minimum attendance per lesson is 1 week.

TESTING:  Make sure you read and submit the testing instructions form if you have not already done so.
After completing a test: If you failed the test then you must restudy that entire section of the textbook and find every correct answer for every question you missed on the failed test and then retake the test on or after the next day. Repeat this process until you finally pass the test.
If you fail a test, you MAY NOT attempt that test again on the same day.  You must restudy the textbook/workbook and find all of the correct answers to the questions missed and then retake the test no sooner than the next day.

If you missed any of the questions on any test, then you must review the section corresponding to that test and look up the correct answers to any questions answered incorrectly.
Once you have found
all of the correct answers, then you may continue on to the next section of the textbook.

Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you may Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.  Final Test is "closed book" and you must submit the Final Test Contract Form before taking the test.  There is a 20 minute time limit on the test.  You will see a time remaining clock in the upper right hand corner of the test screen.  Time does not start until your first question comes on the screen.

Once you have passed the final test, do not take it again.
-  If you fail the final test then you need to restudy both the textbook and all of the section tests and then retake the final test. Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test.  You MAY NOT repeat the Final Test, or any other test, on the same day.

If you miss any questions on the Final Test, then you need to review the textbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook to the questions you missed.  This is required even though you passed the test. A copy of each of your section tests was sent to you and they will have all of the correct answers on it for comparison purposes but you must review the textbook/workbook to find the answers to missed questions.

You may now continue to the class.
