Summary: The book of Hebrews conveys a double dose of spiritual power. It not only presents the greatness of Christ in ways no other New Testament writing does, but it repeatedly demands a heart response from the reader. No one can study Hebrews and not grow spiritually and come face to face in a new way with Christ. It is also true that no New Testament book has had more background research than Hebrews, and none has spawned a greater diversity of opinion. However, virtually all agree that the grand theme of this epistle is the supremacy and finality of the Lord Jesus Christ. Life-changing themes come from God to us in this marvelous epistle. The unequalled glories of Jesus Christ--the solemn danger of drifting away from dependence on divine grace--a heavenly high priest who understands and is ever ready to help--the rest only God can give, even in the middle of trials and of demanding ministry--the hope that is ours through a blood covenant with an awesome God--these and other topics from Hebrews must be understood and put to work practically if we are to live and serve as God's people today. - Publisher.
