You don't have to be Jewish to understand this fascinating book, however, religious Jews will be intrigued by the disclosure of their own historical record that clearly points to Jesus as their long-awaited Messiah. For all readers, this Study Guide is an effective study tool to discover the richness of the life and work of Jesus Christ.
The Old Covenant depended on temporary measures and human efforts which were superseded by Jesus Christ and the New Covenant. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Son of God Himself, provides all that is necessary for mankind to come to God the Father without works or ritual demanded by the Mosaic Law. Simply by believing and trusting in what Jesus accomplished, believers experience righteousness and can begin developing maturity as valued members of God's family.
Hebrews: A Study Guide for LIFE helps the reader understand Jewish references that are often obscure to Gentile readers. This book of Hebrews provides a critical link between the Old and New Testaments by examining the heroes and rituals of the Old Testament, and demonstrating the superiority of Jesus to each person and practice that was valued under Judaism.
This Study Guide for LIFE directs readers through the complexities of this epistle by a three-prong approach to explain what the text says, what it means and how to apply it to their lives. This is done by: 1) offering explanations of our current understanding of the more difficult passages; 2) asking readers questions that can be answered directly from the text to focus attention on specific aspects of the prophecy; and 3) asking probing questions that encourage readers to examine their own lives with the truth that the author reveals. The Study Guide is appropriate for the study efforts of individuals, small groups or teachers preparing to explain this book. Whether you are a curious seeker or a professional minister, the Study Guide for LIFE will direct your studies into the heart of the book of Hebrews, but also to the very heart of Jesus Christ Himself.

About the Author

James K. Crews, B-Th, MA-Th, (he prefers "Jim") is an ordained minister who has served as Bible teacher, church leader, pastor, missionary, international conference speaker and academic dean of a Bible college. He's done all those things, but that's not who he is. He's just your basic, shy analytical kind of guy who sees himself as a follower of Jesus, one who has spent his life studying God's Word and getting to know Him. He has assembled a lifetime of learning to create the Study Guides for LIFE to point believers toward Jesus so they can also know Him and make Him known.
His theology is thoroughly conservative, evangelical, charismatic and Wesleyan. His study guides strive for unity in the body of Christ and a dependency on the Scriptures, rather than on denominational dogma. With theology degrees from both the Independent Assemblies of God and a conservative Baptist seminary, he presents both sides of conflicting views. His goal is to expand the readers' awareness of the issues while directing them to the Scriptures and the father-heart of God so they can develop their own understanding and conclusions.
