The Book of Hebrews

For Messianic Jews, the Book of Hebrews is a wonderful book. It presents the greatness of God's revelation in Yeshua in an unparalleled way, revealing Him as Prophet, King and - most of all - High Priest. The assertion of His deity is especially strong in chapter 1. The middle chapters of the book bring out the dimensions of the work of Yeshua as priest and sacrifice, primarily by contrasting His work with the priesthood and sacrificial system that foreshadowed and pointed toward His redeeming work. Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, in which the High Priest entered the holiest part of the Tabernacle and sprinkled blood upon the Ark for the nation's sin, is the central Holy Day emphasized. In its sacrificial dimensions, Yom Kippur is the great pointer to Yeshua's work.
