The book of Hebrews was initially read and received by the early Christian church as a letter from the apostle Paul. This study emphasizes three things: the “genre” of the epistle, its audience, and the “last days” in which the readers are living.
Right after Adam and Eve sinned, God promised them a “seed,” a Son who would deliver them from the enemy, recover the inheritance that had been lost, and fulfill the purpose for which they had been created. The promise was later confirmed to Abraham and God did the same with David. What neither Adam and Eve, Abraham, nor David probably ever imagined, however, was that their Redeemer Son would be God Himself.
This study looks into three big questions First, we are told that Christ offered prayers to God who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard. What does it mean that Jesus was heard and saved from death? Second, Jesus learned obedience. How did He learn obedience? Was it because, at some point, He was a disobedient Son? Third, Jesus was made perfect. Was He not all along perfect, without sin?
