The Book of Hebrews is one of those â€śneglected booksâ€ť of the New Testament. Not too many preachers or teachers give much time to the riches of this Epistle. Perhaps it is because one needs to have a rather complete grasp of the Old Covenant Mosaic economy in order to be able to properly exegete this Epistle.
Hebrews stand unique among the New Testament books. There is no other book that really treats of Christâ€™s Priesthood after the Order of Melchisedek. Hebrews provides master interpretative keys to so much of the Old Testament. The Tabernacle of Moses, the Levitical sacrificial offerings, the ceremonies of the great Day of Atonement in Israel â€“ the keys to understanding these things may be found in the Epistle to the Hebrew believers. If, however, preachers and teachers do not study these thing from the Old Testament, they certainly will not appreciate Hebrews in the New Testament. Much of Exodus and Leviticus especially can only be understood by using Hebrews and brining the Old Covenant and the New Covenant together at the cross. The cross I is the key to it all.
Hebrews alone answers the questions concerning Melchisedek, the King-Priest who appeared to Abraham. Who was he? Was he a Gentile king, an angelic being, or one of the Patriarchs? This text seeks to answer these questions with some weighty exposition.
Hebrews alone deals with the great Day of Atonement. The Gospels deal with the Feast of Passover. The Acts and Epistles deal with the Feast of Pentecost. But which Epistle deals with the Day of Atonement and its ceremonies? The answer is found in Hebrews.
Hebrews especially covers the subject of the Tabernacle of Moses also, and the entrance of Aaron, the High Priest, within the veil. What do these things mean to Christ and to His church? This text provides answers to these many questions.
