Hebrews

Christ is greater!  This is the theme of the book of Hebrews.  It is more of sermon, than a letter, written to those who may have been on the fence about the person of Jesus Christ.  They had heard the gospel, Jesus Christ is the long awaited Messiah who died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead to reign forever.  But being a follower of Christ was difficult, and some were tempted to throw in the towel and return to Judaism.  The author of Hebrews details how Christ is the fulfillment of the Old Covenant.  He is greater than the prophets, greater than angels, and greater than Moses.  He is a better high priest than the Levites, and gave a better sacrifice.  All of the rituals of the Law pointed to Him.  Thus, we ought to fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.
