Better News for the Hebrews

“God having provided something better for us.” (Heb. 11:40).

This thirteen lesson workbook on Hebrews will enhance your personal study, your Life Groups or Bible Classes.

The book of Hebrews was written to encourage Christians to remain faithful to Jesus. The writer goes to great lengths to describe how great Jesus and the salvation He has provided really is. The better things for us were promised by God and provided by the coming of Jesus into the world to be our High Priest and sacrifice for sin. The book emphasizes the weakness of the Old Covenant and the strength of the New. It stresses how much better it is for us than it was for the saints in previous ages. The word “better” is used over and over again. One word that can describe what it really means to be a believer in Jesus is the word “better.” The book will magnify the power of faith and what faith has done and will do for believers of all ages. It exhorts believers to encourage each other and warns against falling away from the faith. It even relates how persecution and trials provide encouragement for us when viewed as God’s training and discipline to make us stronger and “better.” Everything in the book points to God providing something better for us. Or, as the title of the book suggests, “Better News for the Hebrews.”
