, Richard Phillips shows how this book captures the challenges and pitfalls of people throughout the ages and shows both why and how to press on in the faith. According to Phillips, few studies are more important than Hebrews. Through careful exegesis, he demonstrates how its message of warning and hope centers on the surpassing supremacy of Jesus, seen often from the vantage point of the Old Testament.
About the Reformed Expository Commentary Series:The Reformed Expository Commentary
focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language nor academic technicalities. Rather, proceeding section-by-section it focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book, while drawing out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.
br/>The various points addressed range between historical events taking place within a books narrative, or upon significant doctrinal statements that are made. The application or "guidance" section as the series calls it rounds out each of the particular emphases from the text making it a complete expository volume. Each commentary approaches the text from a Reformed theological perspective, and can be used profitably for either study or devotion.
