Hebrews at A Glance

The author is unknown some say Paul may have written it , where as others don’t. The purpose of Hebrews is to show that Jesus is the true fulfillment of the Old Testament history.

Hebrews is more an essay that an epistle, it shows how Christianity is radically new, while retaining a strong  continuity with the past.

Hebrews was to  Jewish Christians. These knew the scriptures and may well have been established as Christians for sometime, but they were insular and uncertain and wondering whether to turn back to Judaism.

Hebrews teaches that Christianity is the fulfillment of Judaism. The message is clear, the old system has found fulfillment in the new. The “Greek” word for “better” and superior occurs fifteen times in Hebrews.

People who have been sincerely religious or superstitious in the past will find the Christ, and having found Him. They may then understand how inadequate their former vies really were. They may see as well that in His Gracious love God used their past beliefs to draw them towards the fullness of Truth in Him.

Hebrew also reaffirms the Old testament concepts of salvation and atonement. it explains why Christians are strong and clear on such things as the ’ Sacrifice’ of Jesus.

Important references  in Hebrews   “Hebrews 2 verses 14 to 18”.
