The Epistle to the Hebrews is one of the more challenging books in the New Testament. Written to the Jewish converts to Christianity, and in view of the impending destruction of Jerusalem, it is a clarion call to “go outside the camp” of earthly religious systems and their traditions. The ceremonial order of Jewish worship had been set aside by God through Christ’s work on the cross.
These Jewish believers in Messiah needed to heed this “word of exhortation” (Heb. 13:22), and so do we. One of the striking things in Hebrews is its rich presentation of the Lord Jesus Christ and His priesthood, typified by the priesthood of Aaron and Melchisedec.
In this helpful, verse-by-verse commentary on Hebrews, the author makes these deep subjects very understandable with his concise and engaging style. Readers who make use of this commentary will have a deeper appreciation for the work and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
