Hebrews gives us two very important things. First, the emphasis of the book is the absolute superiority of Jesus Christ as our High Priest. We need no one else or nothing else to give us complete assurance before the Father. He delivers us to the throne of grace perfect and completely forgiven of all sin. There is no one else like Him, and He is all we need. He is our Advocate, our Redeemer, and our life. Because of Him God says, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more” (Heb. 10:17). Imagine!
Hebrews also gives us the Hall of Fame in chapter eleven, reminding us of all those faithful men and women who preceded us and lived lives of heroic faith. There is no other book in all of Scripture that has more richness for the believer than this one. Hebrews is full of mystery, metaphors, and an unbelievable message.
