John Brown’s An Exposition of the Epistle of the Apostle Paul to the Hebrews (2 vols.) provides a practical explication of the text while also offering valuable elucidation on key topics such as: authorship, diction, canonicity, semantics, figurative language, and scope of the epistle.
Brown believed that in the book of Hebrews, “it is shown . . . that the Jewish institution was in many respects imperfect,” and that “the new order of things possessed all the excellences, and was free from all the defects of the old . . . and that it was folly and crime to cleave to an institution which had already served its purpose.” The comparison of Christ Jesus to the old system is a main focus of these commentaries, as Brown offers comprehensive verse-by-verse exposition of the text and drives home the significance of the epistle. This edition includes extensive notes for further clarification and reading.
