The Epistle to the Hebrews: High Priest in Heaven


Ancient Faith Publishing 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Hebrew Christians of apostolic-era Palestine were tempted to fall back into Jewish ways because of persecution and a lack of understanding of the true significance of Christ. The writer of Hebrews exhorts them to stand fast, finish the race, and attain the promises awaiting the faithful. As part of the Orthodox Bible Study Companion Series, this commentary applies the teachings of Hebrews to our twenty-first-century lives. Orthodox archpriest Lawrence Farley balances the devotional with the intellectual, feeding both the heart and mind. Working from the original Greek, he examines Hebrews section by section and reveals its relevance for our everyday lives.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
