The Jewish believers were at a crossroads. When they accepted Christ they struggled to grasp how to carry out their new faith differently than the old ways that seemed so familiar. The author of Hebrews reveals that Jesus came not just to bring sinners into faith, but to make the best even better. He compares their old ways and new faith, teaching that Jesus is better in every way. He focuses on Jesus, his effective ministry, and his ultimate sacrifice, showing us that nothing can compare to our incomparable Christ.
