Have you ever stumbled across something that you recognize has a lot of value, but you don’t know where it came from or whose it is? Welcome to the Book of Hebrews. While we don’t know for sure who wrote the Book of Hebrews, or to whom it was written, or where they lived, we can recognize the incredible value of its contents. This is one of the most impressive letters in the New Testament for its beauty, theology and rhetoric.
The author uses of Old Testament quotations and practices to make his point to a Jewish audience he was familiar with. The theme of enduring through persecution was not only relevant to these Jews living in Rome during the persecutions by Nero in 60-65 A.D., but also ring true today in this world so hostile to Christianity. Hebrews delivers profound theological truths that are carried through to precise application for the readers. These same applications transcend the immediate setting and deliver truth to believers today in a manner that divides soul and spirit, joint and marrow.
The first Bible book I analyzed in depth after becoming a Christian was the book of Hebrews. It’s hard-hitting warnings and the urgency with which the truth is presented made a lasting impression on my newly regenerated heart. For a study that will arrest your attention and deepen your knowledge of the Old Testament, jump into the New Testament letter to the Hebrews.
