A great experience in the study of Christian doctrine. The book of Hebrews shows the superiority of Christianity over Judaism in leadership, priesthood, atonement and promises. It was written to help Christians who were in danger of forsaking Christ by returning to the Old Testament Mosaical system. The understanding of the difference between the Old and New Covenants given in this book helps avoid confusion about salvation, worship and doctrine today. Hebrews honors Jesus and is a strong encouragement not to fall away from him. Some highlights of Hebrews are:
• Exalts Jesus Christ as Savior
• Vitamin shot for spiritual renewal
• Enables worship that is inward and real
• Helps us remain faithful during trouble
• Great examples of faith
