The Book of Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians who were suffering because of their allegiance to Christ. Their overwhelming temptation was to return to Jewish worship – return to the temple, to the sacrifices, to Moses, to set aside Christ and go back to the Law. Because of this, you have the Book of Hebrews where the writer lays out one of the greatest theologies on Jesus in all of Scripture. The argument of Hebrews is – why go back to what is inferior? Jesus is greater than Moses, Jesus is greater than Joshua, Jesus is greater than the Law, and Jesus is greater than Aaron and Melchizedek. Jesus is greater than the angels.
