After the superiority of the new covenant has thus been established, the writer dwells on the obligations which it lays on those who have received it. If God’s servants in ancient days lived by faith, a far stronger and more living faith is now required of Christians (11). If the Law imposed a solemn responsibility, this is true in a far higher degree of those who profess the religion of Christ (12). With a few practical admonitions, the Epistle closes (13).
In writing to Hebrew Christians it is natural that the author of Hebrews would form a common ground by declaring the fact of divine revelation and by recognizing Judaism as the fruit of such. Furthermore, it is to be expected that, in keeping with his thesis, he would point beyond that which was good to something which is better. If Judaism was the result of a good revelation, Christianity is the fruit of a better one.
