Gentiles didn’t understand their Old Testament roots. So these Jewish believers were in a kind of no-man’s land. And some of them began to doubt. What if they were wrong about Jesus? What if He is not the promised Messiah? What if He is still dead. What if . . . . What if . . . .
So God led an unknown author to write things that no other New Testament book tells us. In fact, while Paul’s Epistle to the Romans has been called The Constitution of Christianity, and his letter to the Ephesians has been called “the perfect example of Pauline theology,” Hebrews is the most comprehensive and reasoned defense of Jesus as the Jewish Messiah than we can find in any other New Testament book.
