A Commentary on the Letter to the Hebrews

The Shadow and the Substance

The Book

The Letter to the Hebrews is a book that speaks about Jesus Christ and all that he has accomplished. Its aim was to encourage people who were in danger of giving way to the appeal of culture and to the pressures which came upon them.

It was written to a situation far removed from our own, yet the answers to the questions in the first century are still relevant to men and women of the twenty-first century. Jesus Christ in the new covenant confirmed by his death is the substance of all that was but shadow under the old covenant. And faith, now as then, knows the substance.

The writer has given us a simple summary of the Letter to the Hebrews. This work should be a valuable addition to other commentaries and will prove useful not only to thoughtful scholars and students but also to those whose aim is simply ‘to get to the substance’.
