Overview

The author of Hebrews wanted his audience to know and understand one truth: Christ is superior, and therefore, so is Christianity. The person of Christ is better than prophets and angels, his priesthood is greater than that of Melchizedek and the line of Aaron, and his power within the believer’s life is incomparable. Between these contrasts, the author of Hebrews exhorts readers to persevere in their faith, be obedient, grow in their understanding, and to be careful not to miss the grace of God. John Owen’s unveiling of this text gives pastors and students of the Bible a thorough handle on its key passages. The message of Hebrews proves that Jesus Christ is still the Savior the world needs today. Contemporary believers will be inspired by it as they seek to uphold and defend Christ’s supremacy in a pluralistic world.

John Owen

John Owen (1616–1683) is considered one of the most influential and inspiring theologians of the seventeenth century. He entered Queen's College, Oxford, at the age of twelve and completed his M.A. in classics and theology at the age of nineteen.

His first parish was at Fordham in Essex where he became convinced that the Congregational polity was the scriptural form of church government. In the 1640s he became chaplain to Oliver Cromwell, the new "Protector of England," and traveled with him on his expeditions to Ireland and Scotland.

In 1651 he was appointed dean of Christ Church and in 1652 made Vice-Chancellor of Oxford—positions which allowed him to train ministers for the Cromwellian state church. Owen later moved to London and led the Puritans through the bitter years of religious and political persecution—experiences which shaped his theological inquiry, pastoral reflection, and preaching. Owen authored one of the richest commentaries on the book of Hebrews, An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews which are also included in The Works of John Owen along with sermons and essays.
