Gareth Lee Cockerill’s commentary offers sound insight into Hebrews as a well-constructed sermon encouraging its readers to persevere despite persecution and hardships in light of Christ’s unique sufficiency as Savior.

Cockerill analyzes the book’s rhetorical, chiastic shape and interprets each passage in light of this overarching structure. He also offers a new analysis of how Hebrews uses the Old Testament—continuity and fulfillment, rather than continuity and discontinuity—and shows how this consistent usage is relevant for contemporary biblical interpretation. Written in a clear, engaging, and accessible style, this commentary will benefit pastors, laypeople, students, and scholars alike.

With Logos, the NICNT will integrate into the Passage Guide. Whenever you enter your passage and click go, results from the NICNT will appear on the text you’re studying. This gives you instant access to exactly what you’re looking for—in far less time than it would take you to walk over to the bookshelf and begin flipping through a print volume, let alone find the information you need.

“the era that began with Moses and ended with the conquest” (Page 519)

“The pastor begins by announcing his basic premise: God’s self-disclosure in his Son is the climax and fulfillment of all previous revelation.” (Pages 86–87)

“To practice the old before Christ was to anticipate his fulfillment; to practice it after, however, is to deny his sufficiency.” (Page 40)

“As noted above, Hebrews never compares Christianity with Judaism, the church with Israel, nor, apart from 13:9–10, those who follow Jesus with those who follow Jewish practices. According to Hebrews, the people of God are, and always has been, the people who hear the word of God and respond with faith and obedience.” (Page 23)

“His words are a warning to believers of every age pressured by rejection from the unbelieving world and enticed by its offer of immediate, though temporary, gratification.” (Page 277)
