Understanding The Bible For The Common Man: Book of Hebrews

Have you not wished when you read a verse or a group of verses on the same topic in the Bible that you could get an immediate explanation of the verse or verses so you could better understand what they really mean? That’s what Understanding the Bible for the Common Man: Book of Hebrews does.

This book takes the best explanations of renown commentators and pastors and translate them into words you can understand and explains what action you should take or pray about. This book is especially good for young Christians who have recently given their lives to the Lord and want to learn the correct and true meanings of the verses right away and not be led astray by false teachings.

Subject of Book

This book is on the book of Hebrews which is believed to be written by Paul, even though he never mentions his name. He explains how Jesus is a better sacrifice than animals and is greater than angels and a greater High Priest; He gives warnings about disbelief or falling away. He also gives examples of great men of faith in the past, encouraging us to be like them. Chapter 11 is called “The Faith” chapter where he explains the difference between faith and works, plus concluding exhortations for the Hebrews and us to follow.
