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.
These verses continue to emphasize the importance of faith in God, complete confidence and trust in Him. We enter God’s rest when we receive His salvation. Salvation had been prepared for us from the foundation of the world, and we have it readily available today. We just have to receive it as a gift. We don’t have to work for it, earn it, or be good enough to qualify for it. The only requirement is to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that He was sent from God to die for our sins, and that He rose from the dead (Romans 10:9). God wants us to take action today and not wait or harden our hearts like the Israelites.
The Israelites had the “promised land” available to them, whereby they could occupy the land that already had everything they needed. God had already prepared it for them, but they did not receive it by faith from the God that brought them out of Egypt. They feared the size and strength of the people instead of focusing on the size and strength of their God. They refused to believe what had been preached to them by Moses and the believing leaders like Joshua and Caleb. Those that were over 20 years old died in the wilderness during the 40-year journey. Only Joshua and Caleb who were older than 20 were able to take the younger generation into the promised land

PS. I'm working on an exciting project that is going to help other believers use social media to share their God-given gifts with others to become full-time content creators or start and grow a business around their passions.
Social media has changed my life these last 3 years and given me countless opportunities to do great things I could have never imagined.
