Letter to the Hebrews. Purpose of this book.
The people remembered how in the times of Moses there was the tabernacle in the wilderness and during those forty years, though they were landless and wanderers, every need of life was met and they lived in safety and freedom. They always dreamt of such days would repeat when Messiah comes. They confessed Moses as leader and provider, not God. So they missed Jesus the Messiah when He came. They lived in the glory of the past not in the hope of the future.
