Who wrote it paul
Who wrote it? Paul !!!?!?

  • Several early church sources say Paul wrote it in Hebrew, and Luke translated it into Greek.

  • It ends like Paul ends books.

  • It says “the just shall live by faith”.

  • Peter suggests Paul had written a Jewish group. No other book meets the criteria.

  • It’s written from a prison (10:34) in Italy (13:24) by a person who knows Timothy (13:23). Who else but Paul?

Who’s it written to? The Jews

Heb. 3:7b, 12

“’Today, if you will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts…’

See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.”

  • Jewish Believers in Christ. The danger for them was mixing the old order and the new.

  • Jews who were considering Christ, but who were not yet committed. The danger was that they’d never commit.

  • Jews who were skeptical about Christ. The danger was that they’d never believe.

Warnings for them that apply to us too
Warnings for them –that apply to us too!

  • Don’t go back to the Old Ways!

Heb. 10:28-29 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think a man deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctifies him, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace?

  • Don’t go back on Grace!

Heb. 8:10 “This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
