In Hebrews, we read about a church that faced many difficulties. They suffered persecution from those outside the church. And they dealt with spiritual weariness, unbelief, and spiritual immaturity within their own community. The writer of the letter addresses each of these problems with one resounding message: Jesus. He sought to strengthen their souls by reminding them over and again of what God has accomplished through his Son. We begin this study of the letter to the Hebrews by surveying the overall message.
