Hebrews and the Word of God

The author [of Hebrews] doesn’t begin with a self-introduction: instead, he introduces us to God.

The Two Cities was founded originally as a blog in August 2011 and expanded to a podcast in March 2020. Our hope is that you will find here a stimulating array of theological analyses that will stretch your mind and add depth to your personal experience of Jesus Christ.
