Publishers Description
When is a letter not a letter? When it is The Letter to the Hebrews. Daniel J. Harrington describes this text as "the greatest Christian sermon ever preached or written" and its author as "the patron saint of preachers." The basic theological point of the sermon is that Christ is both the perfect sacrifice for sins and the priest who offers himself as a sacrifice. The anonymous author of this work addresses Jewish Christians who had embraced Christianity with enthusiasm but were becoming discouraged and falling away in the face of suffering. The biblical text and Harrington's uncomplicated commentary are ideal components for individual and group study. Reading and reflection will produce a renewed appreciation of the saving work of Jesus. Comprehensive and understandable, the New Collegeville Bible Commentary series brings the timeless messages and relevance of the New Testament to today's readers. With recent scholarship, this series provides vital background and addresses important questions such as authorship and cultural context. The New Collegeville Bible Commentary includes New American Bible translation and will appeal to preachers, teachers, Bible study groups, and all Bible readers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Letter to the Hebrews (New Collegeville Bible Commentary. New Testament) (v. 11)?

Message of Encouragement  Jun 16, 2006
The Letter to the Hebrews, described by its author as a "message of encouragement," takes the form of a written sermon rather than a letter or an epistle. In his commentary, Daniel J. Harrington writes that the basic theological point of Hebrews is simple: "Christ is both the perfect sacrifice for sins and the priest who offers himself as a sacrifice." Though the major theme in Hebrews is priesthood of the Old Testament and of Christ, Harrington notes that many find Christ's priesthood an appropriate model for the ministerial priesthood and Christian life in general.

The commentary is clear and detailed, building careful links to the culture in which the "letter" was written and to the Old Testament. A section of review aids and discussion questions and an index of citations from the Catechism of the Catholic Church are included. As with other titles in the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, "The Letter to the Hebrews" is a valuable resource for individuals and groups interested in learning more about Scripture and its implications for today's Christians.
