The Book of Hebrews is particularly written to Hebrews, yet it unfolds truths that are equally important for every Christian.  There are always those who like to argue concerning authorship, or some portion of its contents. 

However, as we read its contents and interpret them in light of the other books of the Bible, we see a harmony that begins in Genesis and enfolds, in a most logical and interpretive manner, all the way to Revelation.  The reason behind this is because of what we read in Genesis 1:1… “God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son…”

The gradual unfolding of God’s plan for the ages was given by God to the “fathers in the prophets and as stated “in many ways”.  The authority contained in the Holy Scriptures did not come from man’s idea; they originated in and from God. Thus, we see the cohesiveness through all sixty six books.  Think of approximately forty different authors over 500 years and yet we have ONE BOOK.  Jesus Himself confirmed its authority: “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me.” (John 5:39)

There are no more authoritative words than those of the Scriptures! God gave them to reliable men, prophets.  As stated, He then gave them to us through His Son, Jesus: “He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.  When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.” (Hebrews 1:3, 4)   HE was God incarnate!  His WORD is final!
