Each of the inspired Epistles has a specific subject of its own. Hebrews unveils the glories of Christ’s person and tells out the value of His work. This is God’s preservative for His saints against Judaism and worldly religion.

The subject of each of the Gospels is found at the close; of the Epistles, at the beginning. Viewed together, the seven Epistles written by the Apostle Paul to the Gentile Churches, tell the full mind of God as to our blessing and responsibilities. Hebrews follows, shewing our association with Christ in His acceptance up there, and in His rejection down here.

Chapters 1-10, may be headed “Inside the Veil.” Chapters 11-13 “Without the Camp.”

The text of the entire Epistle to the Hebrews is in chap. 1:3, “When He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”

Chapters 1 and 2 are intensely doctrinal. Christ is first presented alone, in His personal and official glories; next, in full association with His people. He is presented there as the enthroned Sin-purger: His people as the sin-purged, one with Him in acceptance before God.

Chapters 3-4 disclose to us God’s rest in Christ, His redemption rest, and how His people share that rest with Him.

Chapters 5-8 unfold the glories of our Great High Priest, and shew how He is engaged for those who are on the way to God, lifting them up and succouring them, and when they fall restoring them.

Chapters 9-10 are occupied with the Perfect Sacrifice, which is the basis of all, and shews that Christ’s title to the place He occupies in the presence of God, and our title to be there, are identical.

Chapters 11-12 shew the path of faith as trod by saints of old, and by Jesus, our perfect Exemplar and Leader.

Chapter 13 exhorts to obedience corresponding to the doctrine of this epistle, to separation and association with a rejected Christ without the camp, sharing His reproach.
