“One of the first indications of a lack of love toward God and the neighbor is for a Christian to stay away from the worship services. He forsakes the communal obligations of attending these meetings and displays the symptoms of selfishness and self-centeredness.” (Page 290)

“Nowhere in the entire New Testament except in the letter to the Hebrews are the doctrines of Christ’s priesthood and the covenant explained.” (Page 4)

“The writer is pointing out that the fullness of revelation is unique, final, and complete.” (Page 27)

“Jesus serves in the sanctuary that is the true tabernacle.” (Page 216)

“Rest for God does not mean idleness; rather it is a cessation from the work of creation. God continues to enjoy this rest now that the work of his creation is completed.” (Page 108)
