Being written to a church containing in its membership a large number of well-matured members with rich and varied experiences, its discussions of important themes are more profound than those in any other epistle. The apostle shows that the ground of our justification before God is our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as distinguished from works of law. He was led to this discussion by the teaching of certain Jews that we are to be justified by keeping perfectly the law.

Hebrews 8:6 But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises. 2 Corinthians 3:6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant - not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. Eusebius, the great historian of the church, recognizes that the letter Clement wrote from Rome to the Corinthian church in the late first century contained many allusions to and quotations from Hebrews and notes that on that basis some believed that Clement himself was the translator or author of Hebrews (Hist.

The book is also written to encourage people and to explain where Jesus falls in the line of superiority

To what, exactly, is Jesus superior? What is the author's point in underscoring this? The author of Hebrews writes to encourage believers to stand strong. The book is also written to encourage people and to explain where Jesus falls in the line of superiority. Hebrews discusses how the Jewish laws are full of flaws and doesn’t lead people to a relationship with God. It also notes that some Old Testaments prophets were aware of the laws imperfections and how they made mention of a new covenant. Ehrman 300) The main theme of the Epistle to the Hebrews is that Jesus is the superiority over Prophets, Angels, Moses, Joshua and the Jewish Priesthood.

This is a book about the Epistle to the Hebrews, which has been called the Cinderella of New Testament studies .

Christ crucified, however, is a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles (1 Cor 1:23).

Author: William Pascoe Goard The Epistle to the Hebrews is unique among the other Epistles. There is the question of authorship. The other Epistles are signed or indication is given to the authorship but no human signature is attached to this great Epistle. It is the authors deduction as he explains in the Introduction to The Statesmanship Of Jesus that the author of Hebrews is God "the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." It is Mr. Goards belief that through this Epistle Jehovah God delivers His complete message: His Faithfulness the Redemption of Israel and Christ's Atoning Sacrifice for the sins of the world. This Epistle goes on to deal with the Covenants both national and racial which God made with Abraham Isaac and Jacob and Mr. Goard gives us his excellent commentary on these significant subjects. Mr. Goard further rewards the reader as he gives his thought provoking interpretations regarding what he believes this Epistle has to say about why we need national repentence . . . what "dead works" are . . . and what "eternal judgement" is. Reading this book will force one to re-think one's idea of what it really means to be in the "army of Christ." Paperback 160 pages
