Written for an audience of Jewish believers in a time of persecution, the book of Hebrews proclaims an eternal truth: Jesus is our Great High Priest. He is the perfect mediator between God and humanity and the ultimate provision for sins. As the writer of Hebrews considers Christ’s work from its foreshadowing in the Old Testament to its present impact, he warns believers about the dangers of apostasy and exhorts them to fix their eyes on Jesus as they persevere in faith.
In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg explores an important question: If true believers cannot lose their salvation, why does Hebrews warn us not to fall away from Christ? As he explains the purpose of the book’s God-given warnings, he encourages us to find hope in Christ’s high-priestly work. Because Christ stood in our place as the final sacrifice for sin, we can have confidence to persevere to the end.
