Hebrews Verse by Verse
Grant R. Osborne George H. Guthrie
OverviewThe letter to the Hebrews is unique in the New Testament for its focus on the priesthood of Jesus and its interaction with the Old Testament. But beyond this deep theology, Hebrews is a practical book that addresses the very real challenges believers face when life gets difficult.
In Hebrews Verse by Verse, the late Grant R. Osborne, with George H. Guthrie, shows readers how this beautifully crafted letter encourages believers to endure in faithfulness to Jesus. By using Scripture and theology to lay the foundation for these exhortations, the central message of Hebrews continues to be relevant for the church today. Osborne's commentary delves into the grand implications of Christ's identity and its importance for our spiritual lives.
