The primary thing that I am seeing is that God is to be blessed because he predestined us.

We are predestined to obtain an inheritance.
Ephesians 1:11-14
Paul takes the opportunity to elaborate on the authority of Christ.

Though the grace that we have been given is not dependent upon our works, we are created for good works.

This is a very peculiar paragraph of Ephesians.

I believe that the central idea of this text is the emphasis on the one true  gospel.

Ok, this is far and away the most difficult arc that I have ever done.
Hebrews 5:11-6:12
This passage gives us insight into the faithfulness of God and the hope that we have in the priestly character of Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 6:13-20
The author is relentless in showing that Jesus is superior to Levi.
Hebrews 7:11-28
  Seems to give narrative (vs.

The action of Christ is, once again, juxtaposed with the action of the high priest of the Levitical line.

This was a very tricky passage for me to arc. I'm not very confident about my results, but some observations that I noticed were: 1. The fact that we have a high priest who sympathizes with us is the reason that we should hold fast and that we can draw near with confidence (thus the bilateral relationship). 2. The author has moved away from comparing Jesus to Moses and has moved to show how he is the fulfillment of the priesthood. 3. It seems to be true that Jesus is the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him because he was made perfect through obedience to God. --> Our obedience is grounded in Christ's obedience (perhaps the sanctifying work of justifying grace?).

Hebrews
Hebrews 4:14-5:10
NT
esv
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens,
Jesus, the Son of God,
ideaexplanation
let us hold fast our confession.
inference
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
negativepositive
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,
that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
actionpurpose
bilateral
For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God,
to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward,
since he himself is beset with weakness.
Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins
just as he does for those of the people.
comparison
And no one takes this honor for himself,
but only when called by God,
just as Aaron was.
progression
So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest,
but was appointed by him who said to him, "You are my Son, today I have begotten you";
as he says also in another place, "You are a priest forever,
after the order of Melchizedek."
actionmanner
series
In the days of his flesh,
Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death,
and he was heard because of his reverence.
actionresult
temporal
Although he was a son,
he learned obedience
through what he suffered.
concessive
And being made perfect,
he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him,
being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
