The epistle to the Hebrews begins by unveiling the glory of Christ--the eternal Son of God who shares the everlasting throne of "the Majesty on high." It shows in entrancing detail how He descended from that throne to become a man, that He might rescue His people from death, judgment, and the power of sin. Here is a combination of careful scholarship and readability, along with apt illustrations. How does Christ rescue His people? By inaugurating a new covenant--"the new covenant in my blood"--replete with better promises, a better priesthood, a better sacrifice, and a better hope than had hitherto prevailed under the law of Moses. By one offering for sin forever, Christ our great High Priest has perfected forever those He has set apart for His glory and who come to God through Him. He is their advocate, their rest, their righteousness, their example, and their "exceeding great reward."
