Hebrews brings great swaths of the Old Testament before us, so any proper study of it demands a look at the background as well as the foreground. Long ago, during the infancy of the church, God raised up remarkable men and women—and the writer of Hebrews was one of them. He apparently had a priestly background. He may have been a Levite—and perhaps a Jewish religious leader—initially resistant to Jesus and the Gospel. This Bible study offers new and fresh insights into the book of Hebrews, its background and context, and its application to today’s world.
