Tag Archive: Hebrews 6

“Midway through his letter the writer makes a particularly profound argument based upon the character of a high priest named Melchizedek, to whom Abraham had given an offering.  Anticipating that some of his readers might miss the point of his argument concerning Christ’s superiority, the writer pauses parenthetically to tell his readers that they need to be more mature in their spiritual understanding.”

Letter to the Hebrews

“It is not clear who the writer of Hebrews might have been.  Whoever it was, the letter reveals that the author is personally acquainted with those to whom he is writing and is familiar with the persecution which they are enduring.

Obviously having that suffering in mind, and with an awareness that many of the Jewish Christians are being urged to return to Judaism, the writer sets forth a tremendous defense of the Christian faith, drawing forcefully from a Jewish context in urging continued faith in Jesus as the Christ.  Moving logically and systematically from one argument to another, the writer shows the superiority of Christ over all that is held to be important to the Jewish religion — prophets, angels, Moses, Joshua, the Levitical priesthood, the covenant, and the sacrifices.”
