Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:1-2
The Epistle of Hebrews holds up Christ before our gaze in His absolute, supreme glory and majesty, and encourages us to "consider Jesus," our Prophet, Priest and King. It is in these three offices that Hebrews sets Jesus before us in His exalted glory, and makes clear that He is the ultimate answer for every spiritual need.
It is our prayer that Eric Alexander's rich study of this epistle will be a "tonic for our souls.”
