Third Lesson in a Series of Four

I have just completed and submitted the third lesson in a series of four to Word Aflame Publications, the Sunday school literature published by the United Pentecostal Church International.

These lessons are written on the adult level and deal with selected themes from the book of Hebrews. This third lesson is titled “The Better Sacrifice.” The Scripture text is Hebrews 9:11-28; 10:1-39; John 1:29. The lesson concludes with a treatment of Hebrews 10:26-29, a text that troubles many.

These lessons will be available for the Winter 2019-20 quarter. In the meantime, my book titled Hebrews: Better Things, a verse-by-verse commentary on the entire book, is available both in hard copy and ebook format at, and as an iBook.

I appreciate the following reviews on

[5 stars] A must read for Oneness Pentecostals

By Jonathan on January 28, 2014

This is a must read for every minister! I would recommend this book to all oneness Pentecostals and Apostolics. The author gives us a very readable commentary on a part of scripture that many may not take the time to understand. Now you are without excuse.

The foundational understanding and interpretations of the Old Testament are essentials to understanding the new covenant that Jesus Christ brings to us. However to return to the old covenant would be death itself.

If you have questions with the old covenant, the mosaic law, the superiority of Christ, the keeping of the sabbath, the incarnation, Old Testament animal sacrifices, faith, etc., etc., you will be glad you have found this resource.

Every subject of Hebrews is dealt with in an academic manner but maintains a style of communication that can be easily understood by those not versed in theological vernacular.

[5 stars] Hebrews with Stadium Lighting

By Loren J. Brown on August 10, 2016

Of the New Testament epistles, the book of Hebrews is unique. Dr. Segraves does an excellent job of shedding light and weaving its message into a colorful tapestry that brings the burden of the author of Hebrews into sharper focus. It is definitely a “better” resource on Hebrews! (Gratuitous pun intended)
