These studies in Hebrews present expository instructions on the two related themes woven throughout the book: Revelation — what God has said to us; and Redemption — what God has done for us. Hebrews brings together God's redemptive purposes which began in the Old Testament and demonstrate how Jesus Christ is God's perfect and only provision for the sins of mankind. The totality of Scripture moves us toward the centrality of Christ and this study seeks to explain: - The superiority of Christ over angels - The inadequacy of the Old Testament law to clear the conscience - Christ's fulfillment of what the sacrificial system only foreshadowed - Jesus as the Great High Priest and King of a better covenant.
“This book, as its title suggests, is a brief exposition of what Chris¬tians often refer to as ‘the person and work of Christ.’ Its focus is on some of the different ways in which the Bible portrays Christ’s identity and describes His ministry. The chapters are by no means exhaustive. They cover only seven of the many descriptions of Jesus found in the Bible, and none of those descriptions is treated exhaustively. So these pages are meant as a taster, a beginning exploration. Our joint prayer is that they will help some who are not yet Christians, be an eye opener to those who already are, serve as an encouragement for mature believers, and be a pleasure for all who love Christ.” – Alistair Begg and Sinclair Ferguson
