With an introduction by Karen Armstrong.

Hebrews marks a parting of the ways for Jews and Christians of the first century. It makes a case for the superiority of the new Christian ‘faith’ over old Hebrew orthodoxy and draws on the Old Testament for precedents for Jesus’s ministry and to paint a picture of Jesus.
