Bible Reading – Week 45

Overview: Although some include the Book of Hebrews among the apostle Paul’s writings, the certain identity of the author remains an enigma. Missing is Paul’s customary salutation common to his other works.  It was written mainly to the Hebrew believers. It was written approximately 67 A.D. Its purpose was to present Jesus as perfect and superior in comparison to anything Judaism and the old covenant had to offer. The author was writing to a group of Christians who were under intense persecution and some were contemplating a return to Judaism.
