INTRODUCTIONS TO THE BIBLE (NEW TESTAMENT) CONTINUE

HEBREWS

HEBREWS-at the time this letter was written. Christians were being hurt and killed because they believed in Jesus. Some of the Jewish Christians were thinking about giving up there Christianity and going back to the Jewish faith. The book of Hebrews was written to teach Jewish Christians that the Christian faith is better in every way than the Jewish faith. It shows how Jesus completed the Jewish faith by making the final sacrifice for sin. After his death, none of the Old Testament sacrifices were needed. Chapter 11– the famous chapter on men of faith in Old Testament times–gives Christians examples to follow of faith and trust in God.
