Beeke, Joel R.
The Christian Teacher as Office-Bearer (Beeke)
The epistle to the Hebrews was originally addressed to a group of Jewish Christians. They were being tempted to abandon their confession of faith in Jesus Messiah and to return to the religion of their ancestors, because of the unrelenting pressure they were under from the fellow Jews.
The message of Hebrews is still timely. Whether Christians are under pressure from family or friends, employers or the state, they are to stand firm, confident that as they fix their eyes upon Jesus he will enable them to endure to the very end of their journey.
