"The basic theme of Hebrews is found in the word better, describing the superiority of Christ in His person & work (1:4; 6:9; 7:7, 19, 22; 8:6; 9:23; 10:34; 11:16, 35, 40; 12:24). The words perfect & heavenly are also prominent. Christ offers a better revelation, position, priesthood, covenant, sacrifice, & power." --Hayford & Snider (1994).
"Hebrews speaks to the challenge of perseverance in the Christian life over against 'falling away' from God. In a day in which thousands every year abandon the church, either in overt rejection or quiet separation, the church needs to address the problem and what to do about it." --Prof. George H. Guthrie (2002)
