Solid Food

The early Hebrew Christians were encouraged to stand firmly in their faith in Jesus Christ. Hebrews, as a sermon or a letter, was targeted to Christian Jews who were tired of waiting for Jesus’s return and who were experiencing the persecution that comes from being followers of a man who was crucified on a Roman cross. The book of Hebrews encouraged them to view Jesus as the all-sufficient, powerful redeemer who would complete God’s program to bring us to Him. Today, by attempting to study the letter of Hebrews in the context of the original language, culture, and environment, we can see how Jewish history points to Jesus fulfilling the law and the prophets. Solid Food is a clear, concise guide to better understanding the richness of this Epistle and its relevance to the church today. 

This is a good book for those who are looking for an in depth study of the book of Hebrews.

Jeffery Leath, digs deep into the book, and looks at historical aspects, as he goes through the book chapter by chapter.  He has done an amazing amount of research for this book.  This is a good study tool, that can be used on your own or even in a group setting as you read along in your Bible.
