The Epistle to the Hebrews is considered one of the most beautifully written and theologically dense books of the New Testament. Its author expounds upon the way the Old Covenant finds fulfillment in Christ and exhorts his readers to maintain their confession of faith despite ostracization and persecution from the surrounding culture. Shane Kapler’s new exploration of Hebrews shows how, when we study the text through the eyes of its first-century Jewish-Christian author and readers, obscure references and allusions yield an abundance of riches. This one epistle becomes the ideal means for, not just introducing, but delving deeply into, foundational Catholic beliefs: the Trinity, Jesus’s full humanity, the Word of God (written and unwritten), Christ’s priesthood and salvation by grace (expressed in both faith and works), the communion of saints, the Eucharist, and the authority of the Church’s ordained shepherds. By immersing ourselves in the heart of God’s revelation in Christ, we, like the first generation of believers, will stand equipped to weather the current storms, and to proclaim Christ — the Way, the Truth, and the Life — to a hostile culture.
