Item description for Commentary-Hebrews V1 (Preaching The Word) by R. Kent Hughes...

This Preaching the Word commentary explores the great truths of Christ's supremacy and the finality of His work on the cross.

Publishers Description

The book of Hebrews conveys a double dose of spiritual power. It not only presents the greatness of Christ in ways no other New Testament writing does, but it repeatedly demands a heart response from the reader. No one can study Hebrews and not grow spiritually and come face to face in a new way with Christ.

It is also true that no New Testament book has had more background research than Hebrews, and none has spawned a greater diversity of opinion. However, virtually all agree that the grand theme of this epistle is the supremacy and finality of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Life-changing themes come from God to us in this marvelous epistle. The unequalled glories of Jesus Christ--the solemn danger of drifting away from dependence on divine grace--a heavenly high priest who understands and is ever ready to help--the rest only God can give, even in the middle of trials and of demanding ministry--the hope that is ours through a blood covenant with an awesome God--these and other topics from Hebrews must be understood and put to work practically if we are to live and serve as God's people today.

Those who preach, teach, and study the Word of God will find this book a gold mine of helpful discussion a Bible book easily misunderstood and often overlooked. With divisions and outlines that are never forced but flow naturally from the text, Hebrews will be a great resource for all who desire to communicate God's truth and seek to grow in their own faith through personal Bible study. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Hebrews V1 (Preaching The Word)?

Great Reference tool for a sometimes difficult NT book  May 9, 2008
R. Kent Hughes does it again with a great commentary on a New Testament book. Hebrews is sometimes not the easiest of books for people to understand, but Hughes does a great job of bringing the text into the light and giving us a good handle on the material.

I especially suggest this resource for the teachers in our Adult Bible Fellowship classes. They are usually non-seminary trained individuals who find Hughes writing a great tool in assisting their preparations for teaching.

Any of the commentaries in the Preaching the Word Series are highly useful.
Very Helpful For Pastors & Bible Students  Jul 25, 2007
I pastor a Vineyard Church in Central Illinois, and am working through Hebrews right now with our congregation. I have a number of commentaries that I have grown to love on Hebrews, but this one by Kent Hughes has risen to the top of my list of late.

The principal reasons for this are:

1) Ease of reading. This commentary is pleasant to read, and intelligently put together.

2) Clear and insightful exegetically based comments on not only the text, but the O.T. quotations that Hebrews commonly cites are commented on with thoughtful depth. Very helpful.

3) Application ideas are sprinkled throughout the text regularly, which is a great source of illustrations for a preaching pastor/teacher of the bible.

4) It is clear that Dr. Hughes has dealt thoughtfully with the original text without communicating over the heads of a typical Christian leader/reader in our culture.

5) He also integrates in densely written and clearly written paragraphs sweeping summaries of the historical backdrop that is relevant to the key points of a passage. For example in Hebrews 4:14-16 he points out that the Stoics, Epicureans and Jews all would have been stunned by Jesus' claim to compassionately represent God the Father in a suffering way. He explains with simple, nutshell style terminology why this is so. Very helpful stuff....and demonstrates a command not only of the Greek text, but also of the historical and cross cultural contexts of the N.T. era.

I don't always agree with his conclusions, but it would be unwise in my opinion to ignore Hughes on Hebrews. I was able to get very nice copies used through this site and am very pleased with vol. 1 and 2 of the Hebrews series.

The missing link between the Old and New Covenants!  May 15, 2001
Pastor Hughes has written a wonderfully readable and edifying expositions of one of the most challenging books in the Bible. Your appreciation and understanding of this profound portion of God's Word will multiply with every page you turn. A must read for all students of the Truth.
