Written by the team who designed and wrote the Life Application Study Bible, this commentary series provides valuable insights on how to apply God's Word to life today. Every serious student of the Bible wants to understand the text, to discover the biblical principles, and to apply those timeless truths to his or her life. The Life Application Bible Commentary series delivers all of this and more. Each volume features a thorough introduction followed by extensive and practical commentary. Throughout, you will find: * maps * charts and diagrams * classic quotes from noted Christian thinkers * illustrations * application notes. The Life Application Bible Commentary series is ideal for individuals studying the Bible personally; for Bible teachers leading small groups, classes, and seminars; and for pastors preparing their sermons. Hebrews has been deeply appreciated by its readers throughout the centuries-from the first century to the twenty-first century. During the early days of the church, believers from all backgrounds were subject to persecution and pressure to renounce their faith. Vulnerable to doubts about the superiority of Jesus Christ, Jewish believers were tempted to turn back to old Jewish rituals and ways of thinking. The letter to the Hebrews was written to warn Jewish Christians against drifting from faith in Jesus back to their former religious rituals. Though today's Western Christians may not be enticed by Jewish religious practices, we may feel the tug of materialism, self-promoting individualism, or a former lifestyle. Hebrews speaks to this temptation with the clear message that only Christ brings salvation, only Christ brings forgiveness, and only Christ satisfies. Therefore Christ alone deserves our adoration, worship, and praise.
