Throughout the book of Hebrews, the audience is challenged to remain faithful to Jesus, who is greater than the heroes of the faith. We should look to the giants of the faith found in the Hebrew Bible as examples for how to live despite hardships and persecution. These challenges will make us uncomfortable, but instead of fearing them, we can remember everything that Jesus has done. To reject him would be foolish when he already fulfilled all that we’ve been waiting for.
Jesus Is the Fulfillment of Hebrew Scriptures. This epistle compares and contrasts Jesus to key historical people and events from the Hebrew Bible. Through these comparisons, we see his superiority. He’s greater than the angels, the Torah, Moses, the promised land, earthly priests, sacrifices, and the covenant. He’s the hope for a new creation, our eternal priest, and the perfect sacrifice.
