Studying the book of Hebrews

The Letter to the Hebrews is an amazing book -- nothing like anything you see in the rest of the New Testament.
  • In some places it soars. The "Hall of Faith" of Hebrews 11, for example, recites the faith of the patriarchs in terms that always lifts me up and inspires me.
  • In other places it's downright difficult. Several verses are frankly hard to understand clearly, but intriguing nonetheless.
  • Here and there you'll find stern warnings and exhortations. How should we take them?
  • Occasionally you almost need hip-boots to wade through the various tabernacle sacrificial rituals from the book of Leviticus. But if you take the time to understand what is being said, you'll be staggered by the implications.
  • It's filled with high-grade nuggets of Christian truth that will stay with you all your life!
