    For the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, Barac, Samson, Jephthe, David, Samuel, and the prophets: 33 Who by faith conquered kingdoms, wrought justice, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, recovered strength from weakness, became valiant in battle, put to flight the armies of foreigners: 35 Women received their dead raised to life again. It is the superiority of our Lord Jesus, then, that remains the theme of this eloquently written letter. The author in his instruction, demonstration, and exhortation draws largely from the copious treasures of the Old Testament. Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.

    Tertullian attributed the epistle to Barnabas. Paul usually begin, the Epistle opens with the solemn announcement of the superiority of the New Testament Revelation by the Son over Old Testament Revelation by the prophets Hebrews The author of Hebrews tells us that the imperfections of the Levitical priesthood were due, at least in part, to the attempt made to regulate conduct according to the requirements of the Mosaic Law. Importance The chief importance of the Epistle is in its content of theological teaching.

    The use of the Old Testament in Hebrews has led some people to refer to the letter as the classical example of the New Testament interpretation of the Old Testament. Paul to the Churches De exhort. Written To Hebrew Christians who were wavering in their faith and all future readers of the Bible. Yet the exact audience, the author, and even whether Hebrews is a letter have long been disputed. Since Clement of Rome knows and quotes the text within what could only have been a few years of its writing, that community may well have been in Rome.

The letter to the Hebrews book

One noticeable peculiarity is the preference of the author for compound words cf. The usual opening with the Apostolic greeting and blessing is entirely lacking; nor is there any clear evidence of the epistolary character of the writing until the brief conclusion is reached xiii, Key Verses: Hebrews "In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

In other letters, Paul either quotes the Masoretic Text the original Hebrew or paraphrases it. Doctrinal contents The central thought of the entire Epistle is the doctrine of the Person of Christ and His Divine mediatorial office.

THE LETTER TO THE HEBREWS

Fonck, Leopold. Abraham, returning from a battle, received a blessing from Melchizedek, to whom he paid a tithe of all the spoils he had obtained from the battle.

Hebrews is probably therefore a written homily, to which the author gave an epistolary ending Heb — The person of the High-priest after the order of MelchisedechHis sacrifice, and its effects are opposed, in an exhaustive comparison, to the Old Testament institutions.

For they watch as being to render an account of your souls; that they may do this with joy, and not with grief. It presupposes a particular community, with which both the writer of the letter and his companion Timothy have had close relations xiii,which has preserved its faith in severe persecutions, and has distinguished itself by works of charity x,which is situated in a definite locality, whither the author hopes soon to come xiii, 19, The failure of this attempt was one of the reasons that made a new and different type of priesthood necessary, which, the author holds, was accomplished in the priesthood of Jesus in accordance with which Jesus became a minister of the New Covenant.

But others were racked, not accepting deliverance, that they might find a better resurrection. In the sixteenth century, doubts about that position were again raised, and the modern consensus is that the letter was not written by Paul. Yet the exact audience, the author, and even whether Hebrews is a letter have long been disputed.

Date Written Hebrews was written before the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple in 70 A. Jacquier, "Histoire des livres du N. The greatness of the priesthood of Jesus is emphasized in a number of different ways, one of which concerns the priesthood of Melchizedek.

What is decisive above all for this question is the fact that the author presupposes in the readers not only an exact knowledge of the Levitical worship and all its peculiar customs, but, furthermore, regards the present observance of this worship as the special danger to the Christian faith of those addressed.

Walter Martin, founder of the Christian Research Institute and writer of the best-selling book Kingdom of the Cults, quipped in his usual tongue-in-cheek manner that the Book of Hebrews was written by a Hebrew to other Hebrews telling the Hebrews to stop acting like Hebrews.

Christ, the Sinless One, is our only valid representative before the throne of God. The author refers to a story in the Book of Genesis in which Abraham encounters Melchizedek, who was a priest and the king of Salem.Is it the Book of Hebrews, the Letter to the Hebrews, or perhaps a Sermon to the Hebrews?

Given its beautiful qualities, maybe it doesn’t matter. The soaring language of Hebrews has been called. The Letter to the Hebrews is preceded by the Letter of Paul to Philemon and followed by the Catholic or Universal Letters, the first being the Letter of James in the New Testament of the Bible.

The Letter to the Hebrews is one of the more important letters of the New Testament, for it speaks to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ, and his one Sacrifice which redeemed mankind and established God's. Apr 17,  · It is possible Paul wrote the book of Hebrews.

Clement of Alexandria suggests that Paul wrote the book originally in Hebrew and that Luke translated it into Greek, though the Greek of Hebrews bears no resemblance to translation Greek (e.g., that of the Septuagint). In fact, in the KJV, you’ll find. We hope this overview and outline of Hebrews will help you as you endeavor to study God’s holy Word — His letter to you.

Unique among the books of Scripture, Hebrews stands alone as an intended treatise on Jesus Christ. The gospels tell the story of Christ’s life on earth. Acts tells of. Usually Hebrews was attached in Greek manuscripts to the collection of letters by Paul. Although no author is mentioned (for there is no address), a reference to Timothy suggested connections to the circle of Paul and his assistants.

Yet the exact audience, the author, and even whether Hebrews is a letter have long been disputed. Nov 19,  · The book of Hebrews is both a masterpiece and an enigma. Serious readers of the letter have always recognized the powerful effect of its carefully crafted discourse.

They have also grappled with the implications of its theologically complex message.
