A Glorious High Throne (Hebrews) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

Edgar Andrews

A Glorious High Throne (Hebrews) (Welwyn Commentary Series)

Edgar Andrews

$28.99

Paperback
The epistle to the Hebrews begins by unveiling the glory of Christ the eternal Son of God who shares the everlasting throne of 'the Majesty on high'. It shows in entrancing detail how he descended from that throne to become a man, that he might rescue his people from death, judgment and the power of sin. How? By inaugurating a new covenant 'the new covenant in my blood' replete with better promises, a better priesthood, a better sacrifice and a better hope than had hitherto prevailed under the law of Moses. By one offering for sin forever, Christ our great High Priest has perfected forever those he has set apart for his glory and who come to God through him. He is their advocate, their rest, their righteousness, their example, and their 'exceeding great reward'.

Dr John Blanchard writes: 'Professor Andrews has tackled the task of unravelling the twists and turns of Hebrews with obvious enthusiasm and equally obvious integrity. None of the "problem passages" is ignored, and none of the text is glossed over, while his careful scholarship is made accessible by the use of apt illustrations. Best of all, every page is full of Christ and "the grace of God that brings salvation". 'I predict that this volume will be of enormous help to the busy preacher, the enquiring student and the "ordinary" Christian who wants to learn more about this wonderfully rich New Testament letter and to apply its teaching to the problems and pressures of living a godly life in a godless world.' 432 pages, from Evangelical Press.


- Publisher Other than Revelation, Hebrews is the most difficult New Testament book to understand clearly. It has often been said that in order to do so the reader must have a pretty thorough knowledge of the Old Testament, and especially of Leviticus. This probably rules out a disheartening percentage of today's Christians--hence the need for books such as this one. Professor Andrews has tackled the task of unravelling the twists and turns of Hebrews with obvious enthusiasm and equally obvious integrity. None of the 'problem passages' are ignored, and none of the text is glossed over, while careful scholarship is made accessible by the use of apt illustrations. Best of all, every page is full of Christ and 'the grace of God that brings salvation' (Titus 2:11).
