Our ability to be great achievers in life will be determined by our Faith during adversity. The book of Hebrews is one of the most excellent areas of the Bible to began, if you desire a belief system not anchored to wordly understanding.
The purpose of writing Hebrews was to encourage Jewish Christians who were being persecuted. Because of this, they were tempted to return to the Jewish religion.
The writer shows them that the old Jewish faith has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. He does this by showing that the religion of Christ is superior in every way.Christ is shown to be superior to the priests under the Old Testament.. Not only is Christ our high priest, but He is also the offering for man’s sins.
Christ is a priest after the order of Melchizedek. Melchizedek was superior to Abraham, father of the Levites from which the priests came, because Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek. Melchizedek blessed Abraham. It is an accepted fact that the one who blesses is greater than the one who is blessed.
Chapter eleven is one of the best known chapters in the Bible. It is called "the hall of fame of the heroes of faith." Because of their faith in His promises, great men and women of God overcame many trials and temptations. They were able to do this because they were looking for a better city, a better country, and a better resurrection.
