The Book of Hebrews (NLT): This Book argues for the superiority of Jesus Christ over the Jewish law and traditions, showing that He is the ultimate high priest and the perfect sacrifice for sin. The author emphasizes the need for perseverance in faith, warning against falling away from the truth and encouraging the readers to hold fast to their faith in Christ. The Book of Hebrews is located in the New Testament containing 13 chapters and a total of 303 verses. 


Author: Attributed to the apostle Paul, but its true author is anonymous. 


Theme: The superiority of Jesus Christ as the ultimate revelation of God and the fulfillment of the Old Testament law and prophecies. The new covenant that Jesus brought is superior to the old covenant under the law and faith is superior.


Timeline: Believed to have been written between AD 60 and AD 70 before the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple.


Structure: A New Testament letter written to Jewish Christians.


Recipients: Jewish Christians.


Importance: The book of Hebrews is considered authoritative scripture and provides important teachings on the person and work of Jesus Christ, as well as the superiority of faith and the new covenant over the old covenant. It is also considered profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, as stated in 2nd Timothy 4:16.




Scripture Insights: 


In these scriptures, we and the Jewish believers are warned to listen carefully to the truth that has been proclaimed or we are in danger of drifting away from it. For the Jewish believers, it was belief in Jesus Christ as the Messiah and salvation through the new covenant/testament of grace versus the old testament or law under Judaism. What the Jews had heard directly from Jesus and was confirmed by those who heard Him speak as well, was truth. Jesus brought the message of salvation to the Jewish people. He sent out His disciples to preach the gospel of salvation before He ascended into heaven.


The Apostle Paul who was responsible for the murder of many early church Christians met the resurrected Jesus on the road to Damascus and was converted from Judaism to salvation through Jesus Christ. He became the writer of most of the New Testament, suffered much persecution from the Romans, and was rejected by his own people the Jews. He preached the gospel which was intended for the Jews first and then went to the Gentile world (Romans 1:16).


Prior to Jesus, God used prophets and angels to communicate His Word. With Jesus, who was the Word made flesh (John 1:1), He brought salvation to mankind. God bore witness with signs, wonders, and various miracles while Jesus was on earth. After Jesus left,  gifts of the Holy Spirit continued to exhibit God’s power through the early church and those gifts are still available to us today. How can we neglect so great a salvation provided by Jesus, our Lord, and Savior? Again, salvation is not only being saved and escaping eternal damnation after physical death which of itself is enough, but our God is so good and merciful that His salvation includes healing for our minds and bodies, wholeness, preservation, and deliverance.


When we get caught up with daily living, and neglect reading our Bible, studying the Word, hearing the Word preached/taught, and praying, we can find ourselves in a weakened position. Instead of our faith being strong, we realize that doubt, unbelief, and fear may have crept in when we face a new challenge or crisis. We discover that we have drifted from what we know we should do on a daily or regular basis. But thank God we can ask Him to pull us back to the truth and not neglect this great “salvation” that we have. Live in God’s fullness for you because Jesus came to give you life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). Don’t let the enemy steal your time and distract you from your daily walk with the Lord and what He has called you to do.

Social media has changed my life these last 3 years and given me countless opportunities to do great things I could have never imagined. If this is something you might be even slightly considering this year please take a few moments to fill out this quick feedback form and I will let you know first when it's ready! Click Here To Learn More
