Hebrews

  • By Debra J. Bucher, Estella Horning
$31.99
($39.99)
Product Description

What constitutes a faithful life? At its most basic level, the New Testament book of Hebrews considers this essential question and pleads with its audience to find in faithful living the rest that Christ offers. The book begins with a poetic reflection on the one who lived the most faithful of lives--Jesus--and concludes with words of exhortation to go and do likewise.

In the 37th volume in the Believers Church Bible Commentary series, scholars Debra J. Bucher and Estella Horning examine at great length one important aspect of Hebrews: Jesus as the "new covenant" and the "once for all," better sacrifice who replaces the daily and yearly sacrifices offered in the temple in Jerusalem. The authors give attention to the ways this idea has been used to minimize the value of other religious traditions and even to legitimize the horrors of the mid-twentieth century. They carefully unpack the language around sacrifice and covenant based on the saving work of Jesus, drawing out encouragement found in Hebrews to live as individuals and as a community led by Jesus, the pioneer and high priest.

Bucher and Horning don't shy away from the difficult language in Hebrews, but rather help readers understand its historical context and then how to use the text with love within our own context.
