In the midst of persecution and rejection, the Hebrew believers, who had come from a background of legalism and works, were tempted to hold onto symbols, rituals, and traditions that were grounded in the requirements of the old covenant. Then God came to earth in human flesh as the new covenant, and these believers discovered the freedom they could have with their Savior.
The book of Hebrews contrasts the old and new covenant and brilliantly reveals that Christ is higher than any Old Testament character, priest, ritual, or sacrifice-our own High Priest-giving all believers unfettered access to God.
The Mac Arthur Study Guide Series provides a twelve week, verse-by-verse examination of the books of the New Testament. This revised and updated series continues to be one of the best-selling study guides currently available for individuals or small groups.
Features Include:
  • Twelve week study
  • Thought-provoking questions
  • Verse-by-verse commentary
  • Space provided for note-taking

User Review  - Sherry Bowers - Christianbook.com

Our small group of about 20 is enjoying the format with the scripture right in the workbook. Love the way John MacArthur breaks scripture down verse by verse and explains in detail what it means and what is going on. Really good study for new believers and old believers alike. Read full review
