Introduction to Hebrews
This writing explains in detail that the Christ (Messiah) promised by God in Genesis 3:15 and throughout the Old Covenant times is indeed:
– the Jesus who has been resurrected from among the rest of the dead-people and is now seated at God’s right-hand side on God’s throne
– and he is the son of God, he is the Lord and the Christ, and he is the apostle and chief-priest of our agreement
– and we are living in the New Covenant times since the gift of holy spirit was made available on the day of Pentecost recorded in Acts chapter 2.
In some of the oldest papyri (e.g. P13 and P46) this letter is placed immediately following the letter that is known as “Romans”. To view papyri you may visit the following links:
This letter known to many people as “Hebrews” does not have the word “Hebrew” in the body of the letter, nor is it specifically addressed to a person or group of people in particular. The title given to it in some Greek texts is “Towards Hebrews” to differentiate it from other letters which were given similar titles by men to distinguish them. Of course, these titles were not part of the original writings. From the Book of Acts to the Book of Revelation the occurrences of the Greek word for “Hebrew” are in Acts 6:1, 21:40, 22:2, 26:14; II Corinthians 11:22; Philippians 3:5; and Revelation 9:11, 16:16.
The Book of Hebrews was written sometime during or following Acts chapter 18. Peter refers to this letter in II Peter 3:15 and 16.
