HEBREWS, A MASTERPIECE
The book of Hebrews, as well as other books, are indeed
a 'Masterpiece of Truth'. Hebrews is the product of the Lord
via the converted Pharisee known as Saul of Tarsus, Acts 9:11.
He later becomes known as "Paul", Acts 13:9,13; 2 Peter 3:
It is thrilling to read what Paul says about Jesus, and the
church of God. He was so opposed to both, but was com-
pletely turned about by his experience on the road near Dam-
ascus, Acts 9:3-16. He was like the mantle of the old Aladdin
Lamp---it was ashen gray; but with fuel and a light; it glowed
far and wide.
The word "Hebrew" occurs first in Genesis 13:13 where
Abram is called the Hebrew. The Hebrew language paralelled
by many others such as "...Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew",
Many subjects are introduced in the writing or book, we
know as Hebrews. It was surely written when the Temple was
still in operation, Hebrews 10:11. The Temple was destroyed
in 70 A.D.. Scofield dates the writing at 64 A.D.
A good'overview'of the book may be seen by the "better"
references: (a) "his Son," is better than angels, 1:2-4. (b) we
have a .."better hope", 7:19, with Romans 5:2.(c) by Christ we
have a better testiment (covenant), 7:22. (d) Christ offered a
better sacrifice, 9:23-24.(d) a better and enduring substance in
heaven is gained by giving our all to Him,10:32,(e) martyrs ob-
tain a better ressurection, 11:35.
Of my Jesus, I can say, ' in all things He doeth well---and
I am the recipient of His labors and grace'. DDH.
