The Apostle Paul wrote the epistle of Hebrews in a time of crisis for God’s Church. Many of God’s people had forgotten the reason for their calling and had lost their spiritual vision. A terrifying holocaust loomed. Paul brought a message of strong correction—and of inspiring vision and hope! Many proofs show that it was actually inspired by God mainly for this end time, just before the Second Coming. It reveals your transcendent God Family potential and shows what the living Jesus Christ is doing right now to help you attain that future. You need the exhortation and encouragement in Paul’s profound masterpiece!
