The message of Hebrews for the global church is that Jesus is better than every other thing believers are tempted to fall back into, such as their formers ways of sin, culturally comfortable patterns of thinking or living, or non-Christian ethical codes. In the midst of adversity, believers are to fix their eyes on Jesus, live by faith, and run the race that is marked out for them.

Reading a Book of the Bible: One of the first things to do when reading any book of the Bible is to try to get the big picture of that book and that book within the context of redemptive history. The best way to do this is to read or skim through the book times at least and to note the natural.

The book of Hebrews provides resources to recapture flagging zeal and motivation, focusing again upon the reason for our hope and faith, establishing clearly Christ's credentials and the import of His message, re-igniting the original excitement of their (and our) calling and their (and our) awesome future which they (and we) have put in jeopardy through apathy and neglect.

The two titles of Jesus inApostle and High Priest, are unique to Hebrews and sum up what Auctor has already said about Jesus thus far, and what he is also about to say about Him in the next few chapters. He was SENT from the Father to us (ch.1, 2), fulfilling the role of Apostle.

Going through a long line of prophets, God has been addressing our ancestors in different ways for centuries. Recently he spoke to us directly through his Son. By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end.

This description of the author's purpose helps orient us to the main ideas found in the book of Hebrews. As we've just suggested, the author of Hebrews wrote to exhort his audience.

The Epistle to the Hebrews, or Letter to the Hebrews, or in the Greek manuscripts, The Message of Hebrews book To the Hebrews (Πρὸς Ἑβραίους) is one of the books of the New Testament.

The book of Hebrews is a General Epistle (Apostolic Letter). It was written mainly to the Hebrew believers. The author is anonymous, although either Paul or Barnabas was traditionally accepted as the author. It was written approximately 67 A.D.

Its purpose was to present the Lord Jesus Christ as perfect and superior in comparison. Of course, the central message of the Book of Hebrews is how the New Covenant is immeasurably greater than the Old Covenant.

A few will say that since Abraham was the 'father of the faithful,' then Christians of today should therefore follow "his example" and tithe as he did. The writer of the letter turns their eyes to Christ, shows how he fulfills the hope expressed in the Old Testament sacrifices, and calls his readers to a steadfast faith that will take them through the hard times they now face.

Missing is Paul’s customary salutation common to his other works. In addition, the suggestion that the writer of this epistle relied upon knowledge and information provided by others who were actual eye-witnesses of Christ Jesus () makes Pauline.

In that last verse, Peter is confirming that Paul had also written a letter to the Hebrews. The theology presented in Hebrews is consistent with Paul’s. Paul was a proponent of salvation by faith alone (Ephesians9), and that message is strongly communicated in this epistle (Hebrews, and ).

The Centerpiece of All We Believe - So, my dear Christian friends, companions in following this call to the heights, take a good hard look at Jesus. He’s the centerpiece of everything we believe, faithful in everything God gave him to do.

Moses was also faithful, but Jesus gets far more honor. A builder is more valuable than a building any day. Every house has a builder, but the Builder.

In sketching the background of Hebrews, I’d like to draw our attention to several important clues left in the book regarding the identity of the author, the central message of the book, and the identity of the readers.

In this post, we’ll be focusing our attention on the central message of the book.
