The Letter to the Hebrews

 

Along with the book of Romans, Hebrews stands out as one of the two greatest epistles (letters) in the Bible. It has been called "the profoundest epistle of the New Testament," and "the most fully developed doctrinal writing in the whole of the New Testament."

Hebrews centers on the High Priesthood of Christ and the relevance of that doctrine to its readers and to us today. "Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens" (chapter 8, verse 1).

The Lord Jesus Christ, our High Priest, is shown to be superior in His person, superior in His functions, and superior in His resources.
