Hebrews

Author – Probably Paul
Time – 63 A.D.

Summary – This letter persuasively presents the distinctiveness of Jesus Christ as the Son of God. The letter is primarily written to Jewish Christians who were wavering between Judaism and Christianity. Its primary message was to prove that Jesus Christ was the fulfilment of all Old Testament prophecy and symbol. With Christ as the fulfilment, there was no longer a need to offer the animal sacrifices, etc., required under the Mosaic Law. Christ is the High Priest and mediator of all believers in all ages who look for the salvation of God.

Christ – The New and Living Way

Key Verses – "Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he consecrated for us, though the veil, that is , His flesh; and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful . And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching". Hebrews 10 v 19 to 25.
