Overview

For many Jewish Christians of the first century, living in the light of the gospel was challenging. Having accepted Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah, they were regarded by still-skeptical family, friends and neighbors as dangerous, misguided and even disloyal to all that God had said earlier on. The letter to the Hebrews was written to show that you can't go back to an earlier stage of God's purposes but must press on eagerly to the one that is yet to come. In these studies by Tom Wright we find encouragement and assurance that pressing on, even in the face of such close and constant pressure to fall back, is its own reward.

The binding which was poorly constructed kept me from giving this the full five stars. N.T. Wright continuously produces excellent bible study guides. Highly recommended for both individuals and groups.

This would be an excellent book for a Bible Study. Also Wright has some great illustrations for sermons. Also Hebrews is so powerful on the majesty of the Son.
