Press On or Give Up? - A Guide to the Book of Hebrews

The Book of Hebrews can seem rather remote to the Western reader, as it gives lengthy arguments about angels, priests, covenants and sacrifices. However, it gives us an inspiring revelation of who Jesus is, and the the superiority of his ministry when compared with each aspect of the covenant in the Old Testament. The Book of Hebrews also gives us a helpful guide on how to view and understand the Old Testament from a Christian perspective.

The purpose of this book is to to work through the text of Hebrews and to give an explanation of these arguments and so enable the reader to understand and appreciate the work of Christ in a greater way.

The book begins with a general introduction addressing issues such as the debated authorship of Hebrews, a description of the situation of the original readers, and the main themes of the book. This will aid the understanding of the more detailed explanation of the text which forms the second part. The book ends with a special study of the important theological concept of types, the people, objects or events in the Old Testament that foreshadowed and pointed towards Jesus.
