Jesus Is Greater: A Free TGC21 Playlist – Brett McCracken

The Gospel Coalition’s 2021 National Conference is set for April 12 to 14, both in Indianapolis and online. The conference theme is Jesus Is Greater: Christ’s Supremacy in a Chaotic World, and keynote speakers will take us through the book of Hebrews.

In a sharply divided world, what could possibly unite us other than the One who is Lord over all? Contemplating Christ’s supremacy puts everything else in our hectic, broken world into perspective. We look forward to gathering together to declare with one voice the greatness of Christ—who “upholds the universe by the word of his power” (Heb. 1:3).

We created a free playlist to accompany the conference, with 75 songs inspired by the Jesus Is Greater theme and the book of Hebrews.

You can stream the playlist on Spotify or on Apple Music right now.

The playlist is ordered in 10 “movements” that take us through the book of Hebrews, with songs grouped according to themes we find as we move through the text.

We hope this playlist immerses you in music that reminds you of Christ’s all-surpassing greatness. He is greater than the angels, the prophets, the priests. His new covenant is greater than the old. His sacrifice is greater than any other. Nothing before or after him can compare. Jesus is greater than it all. That’s the resounding message of Hebrews, and it will be our rallying cry at TGC21.
