The Epistle to the Hebrews deals with the struggle Jewish believers have in leaving Judaism for Christianity. Having been raised with a great and long heritage of Judaism, given to them by God through Moses, it is understandable that they would have a difficulty in letting go of it. Their consciences had been formed to embrace that Judaistic way of approach to God, and to give it up made them feel as though they were violating their consciences. What they needed to understand was that the whole Levitical order in Judaism was a provisional thing. It was given to them by God until the coming of Christ and the establishing of “the new and living way” in Christianity (Hebrews 10:20). Thus, the very same God who established Judaism long ago was now calling them out of it because He had something better for them in the Lord Jesus Christ.

The writer of the epistle, whom scholars believe was the Apostle Paul, gives various Scriptural reasons why the Christian approach to God is “better” (a characteristic word in the epistle), and concludes that every Jew who believes on the Lord Jesus Christ should go to Him “without the camp” of Judaism, because He is no longer identified with it.
