Books of the Bible


Although no authorship is claimed or inferred, the book of Hebrews is generally assumed to have been written by the Apostle Paul (who wrote about half of the New Testament). It is a letter, or epistle, to the Hebrew people, most likely Jewish Christians.

The book of Hebrews is self-described as a “word of exhortation” (Hebrews 13:22) and it reads more like a sermon than as a letter.

Although primarily a communication about Jesus, Hebrews does much to connect the Old Testament priesthood, law of Moses, and Judaism with salvation and following Jesus.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 1,000-page website to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and many books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
