The Epistle to the Hebrews.

Hebrews 13:8

The Epistle to the Hebrews.

Before we get into the Epistle to the Hebrews, I would like to explain some facts I discovered.

In a 1871 KJV Bible (Family Bible) and a KJV Bible I bought in 1981, this Book is entitled “The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Hebrews”. After the reformation, it was mostly determined that Paul could not have written it. So, basically, now it is known as The Epistle to the Hebrews and is no longer part of the Pauline Epistles. Some scholars still believe Paul wrote Hebrews.

Authors suggested were Barnabas and Apollos, both with similar qualifications. Friends and travelers with Paul; knowledgeable of the scriptures, and had priestly backgrounds.

The Jewish Christians and converts this Epistle was sent to were being encouraged to revert to Judaism. Or to add differing beliefs to the gospel of Jesus Christ. This Epistle urged the people to keep their faith in Christ. Also to endure any suffering or reproach handed out to them.

The unknown Christian author declares the because of Jesus Christ, who is:    > the Son of God;    > the Great High Priest;    > the Author of salvation;    > superior to the angels and Moses;    > reflection of God’s glory;    > the very character and essence of God;  making Christianity superior to Judaism and any other religion.

The Christian author, altho, still unknown, declares that Jesus is the only Mediator between us and God!
