Keep your eyes on JESUS
More than any other book of the New Testament, Hebrews offers us a panorama of the Bible as a unified whole. The writer emphasizes the perfection of the new covenant by setting it against the backdrop of the old one which is past its sell-by date, obsolete, a mere shadow.
Hebrew contains many rich motifs:
* God, his Son, angels and humans – the divine order
* Salvation then and now
* The inspiring gallery of great heroes of faith
* Exhortations to press on, endure and keep a heavenly perspective
Crossway Bible Guides are tailor-made for group study leaders and members, and are also ideal for personal devotional use. They provide a concise summary and lively application of each passage, with pointed questions to probe more deeply into personal, church-centered and global issues. They help us to grasp the Bible’s message and allow the Bible to get a grip on us.
‘Punchy and practical, these guides unlock the rich secrets of the Bible for today’s readers. Offering several routes through a Bible book, they are ideal for individual Bible reading, group study or even sermon preparation.’ Stephen Gaukroger, Series Editor
