Henrietta Mears writes...

We as Christians have that which is better—better in every way. The key word to the book of Hebrews is "better." It occurs thirteen times (in the KJV)....

How often when you take a trip for the first time over a new road, you drive straight along anticipating where it will lead, and what difficulties you may encounter. It seems to be the thing to do. Coming back over the same road, you look around and notice things. Do this in studying the book of Hebrews. Read it through, and do not be overanxious about the things you cannot understand. Then you can go back over the road in your reading and take notice of the many things along the way. You could spend months in Hebrews. It presents so many wonderful truths. At the first reading, you will be impressed by one fact above all others: that Jesus Christ is prominent on every page...

This book was written to strengthen the faith of wavering believers. Paul's great argument is the superiority of Christ over all others.

Do we know the real difference between having Christ as a Savior and as a Priest? Well, this book answers the question.

The book of Hebrews proves that we can never understand the Old Testament without the New, or the New without the Old....

Consider Jesus -This is our weakness. We look at ourselves and our own weakness. Consider Him (Hebrews 3:1). This is the astronomer's word. Set your telescope to the heavens and gaze upon Him....

Joshua could not lead the children of Israel into this perfect rest and trust in God, but Jesus did. Cease from self-effort and yield yourself to Christ (Hebrews 4:10). Trust Jesus as your Joshua and "enter in" to His land of promise. Cease struggling and place all in His hand. (Read Psalm 37:5.)

J Sidlow Baxter writes...

I shall not forget my first sight of Mont Blanc towering up beyond the Chamonix Valley, king among Alpine giants, crowned with a sun-transfigured majesty. One may well feel a similar, reverential wonder with this transcendent "Epistle to the Hebrews" opening up to view. It is one of the greatest two theological treatises in the New Testament. (Ed: Romans being the other)

Here is Baxter's Outline entitled:

CHRIST THE "NEW AND LIVING WAY"

1. JESUS - THE NEW AND "BETTER "DELIVERER (Heb 1-7).
Jesus the God-Man - better than angels (Heb 1:1-2:18).
Jesus the new Apostle - better than Moses (Heb 3:1-19)
Jesus the new Leader - better than Joshua (Heb 4:1-13).
Jesus the new priest - better than Aaron (Heb 4:14-7).
2. CALVARY - THE NEW AND "BETTER" COVENANT (Heb 8:1-10:18)
New covenant has better promises (Heb 8:6-13).
And it opens up a better sanctuary (Heb 9:1-14).
And is sealed by a better sacrifice (Heb 9:15-28).
And it achieves far better results (Heb 10:1-18).
3. FAITH - THE TRUE AND "BETTER" PRINCIPLE (Heb 10:19-13).
Faith the true response to these "better" things (Heb 10:19-39)
It has always been vindicated as such: examples (Heb 11:1-40).
Is now to endure, patiently looking to Jesus (Heb 12:1-13).
Is to express itself in practical sanctity (Heb 12:14-13:21).
Parting words Heb 13:22-25.

A M Hodgkin (Christ in All the Scriptures) writes:

The glories of our Savior are exhibited in this Epistle; it is one of the most precious books in the Bible. It has been called “The Fifth Gospel.” Four describe Christ’s ministry on earth, this describes His ministry in heaven. It was written to Hebrew disciples, probably of Jerusalem, to avert the danger of their drifting back into Judaism. They are exhorted to let go everything else, in order to hold fast the faith and hope of the Gospel. The Epistle is attributed to Paul, and though many question this, there is abundance of evidence in its favor. To give one example only, the concluding salutation, “Grace be with you all,” is Paul’s “sign-manual” in every Epistle.

The Key-note is the High-Priesthood of the Lord Jesus...Throughout this Epistle we note that whatever Christ touches He makes eternal. Trace the word “eternal” throughout (Hebrews 5:9, 6:2, 9:12, 14, 15, 13:20). (Ed: There is another "time word", once, which speaks of finality in Hebrews - see Hebrews 6:4, 7:27, 9:7, 12, 26, 27, 28, 10:2, 10, 12:26, 27)

Hebrews 1-2. Christ better than the angels both in His deity and His humanity.

As our great High Priest, Christ is able to understand all our need, because He is perfect Man. He is able to meet all our need, because He is perfect God. The central point is Christ’s eternal Priesthood and all-availing sacrifice for sin. The Epistle dwells upon the supreme importance and power of the blood of Christ in obtaining eternal redemption for us, in purging the conscience, in opening to us the heavenly sanctuary.

Hebrews 3. Christ better than Moses.

Hebrews 4. Christ better than Joshua.

Hebrews 5, 6, 7. Christ better than Aaron.

Hebrews 8. A better Covenant.

Hebrews 9. A better Tabernacle.

Hebrews 10. A better Sacrifice.

Hebrews 11. Examples of Faith’s better choice.

Hebrews 12. Call to follow this glorious company and the great Captain Himself in the path of outward loss for eternal gain.

Hebrews 13. Call to go forth unto Him without the camp bearing His reproach.

Daniel Wallace in his introduction writes...

Philip Edgcumbe Hughes opens the introduction to his commentary on Hebrews with some insights into this very enigmatic book:

If there is a widespread unfamiliarity with the Epistle to the Hebrews and its teaching, it is because so many adherents of the church have settled for an understanding and superficial association with the Christian faith. Yet it was to arouse just such persons from the lethargic state of compromise and complacency into which they had sunk, and to incite them to persevere wholeheartedly in the Christian conflict, that this letter was originally written. It is a tonic for the spiritually debilitated.… We neglect such a book to our own impoverishment. (Hebrews Introduction)

Leonard S. Walmark writes that...

The theological epicenter of the Epistle to the Hebrews may be summed up in one word: Christology. No biblical document outside of the four Gospels focuses as totally and forcefully on the Person and redemptive achievement of Jesus...For purposes of analysis the epistle may be divided into two major sections. In Hebrews 1:1-10:18, the primary theme is the superiority of Christ as eternal High Priest. He is declared ultimately superior to the most cherished institutions of the ancient Hebrew faith. He is superior to the word of God spoken through the prophets since He Himself is God's ultimate redemptive Word. He is superior to the angelic hosts because no angel can boast of being the Son of God, fully Divine (Heb 1:4-14), and yet fully Human (Heb 2:5-18). These two factors qualify Him uniquely to be the faithful and perpetual sin-bearer of His people. On the basis of that same uniqueness of being, He is as superior to Moses the great lawgiver of Israel (Heb 3:1-6), as Creator is to the created. The spiritual rest from dead works offered by Jesus is superior to that temporal one represented in Moses and Joshua through the occupation of the promised land (Heb 4:1-11; esp. Heb 4:9-10). Beginning with Hebrews 5:1 the central theological concern of the epistle emerges: the eternal spiritual priesthood assumed by Jesus through offering up Himself as the once-for-all sacrifice for sins. It is infinitely superior to the temporal earthly ministry exercised by Aaron and his descendants (Heb 4:14-5:11; 7:1-10:18). (Hebrews Theology)

HENRY ALFORD
Hebrews Commentary
The New Testament for English Readers
Index to Mt-Rev Chapter by Chapter

James Rosscup writes that Alford's series on the New Testament "contains much that is valuable in the Greek New Testament...though all of the Greek New Testament words have been changed to English throughout." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors: An Annotated Bibliography of Selected Works or Logos)

John Piper writes ""When I’m stumped with a...grammatical or syntactical or logical [question] in Paul, I go to Henry Alford. Henry Alford...comes closer more consistently than any other human commentator to asking my kinds of questions."

Charles Haddon Spurgeon writes that this text "is an invaluable aid to the critical study of the text of the New Testament. You will find in it the ripened results of a matured scholarship, the harvesting of a judgment, generally highly impartial, always worthy of respect, which has gleaned from the most important fields of Biblical research, both modern and ancient, at home and abroad. You will not look here for any spirituality of thought or tenderness of feeling; you will find the learned Dean does not forget to do full justice to his own views, and is quite able to express himself vigorously against his opponents; but for what it professes to be, it is an exceedingly able and successful work. The later issues are by far the most desirable, as the author has considerably revised the work in the fourth edition. What I have said of his Greek Testament applies equally to Alford’s New Testament for English Readers,* which is also a standard work." (Spurgeon, C. H. Lectures to my Students, Vol. 4: Commenting and Commentaries; Lectures Addressed to the students of the Pastors' College, Metropolitan Tabernacle)

C H Spurgeon wrote that Bengel's NT commentary "is the Scholar's delight! Bengel condensed more matter into a line than can be extracted from pages of other writers."

John Wesley said of Bengel "I know of no commentator on the Bible equal to Bengel" and referred to him as "The great light of the Christian world."

  • Exposition of Hebrews - Hebrews 1-9
  • Exposition of Hebrews - Hebrews 10-13
  • Spurgeon writes - "Dr. David Smith says of this work: “There is not a single instance of carelessness in investigating the true meaning of a text, or of timidity in stating the conclusion at which the author had arrived.” What more could be said in praise of any exposition?" (Note Brown calls this "The epistle of the apostle Paul" but the authorship is by no means certain.

  • Short Explanation of Hebrews
  • Spurgeon: "This is generally to be found in connection with the author’s “Brief Exposition on Matthew.” (No. 1035.) We need say no more than—get it, and you will find abundance of suggestions for profitable trains of thought."

WILLIAM GOUGE

  • Hebrews Commentary
  • Another source: Heb 1-5; Heb 6-8; Heb 9-13
  • Spurgeon's critique: We greatly prize Gouge. Many will think his system of observations cumbrous, and so, perhaps, it is; but upon any topic which he touches he gives outlines which may supply sermons for months.

W. LINDSAY

  • Lectures on Hebrews - Commentary
  • Spurgeon: "One of those great expository works with which the Scotch ministry has so frequently enriched the Church. We wonder if any one ever read this excellent exposition through; we should not like to be sentenced to do so."

JAMES MOFFATT - INTERNATIONAL CRITICAL COMMENTARY 1924 = CRITICAL AND EXEGETICAL COMMENTARY

James Rosscup - "Some regard this work rather highly for its exegetical excellence at times in the Greek."

G CAMPBELL MORGAN

James Rosscup - Preached expositions with good practical applications running through Hebrews 11. Some errors can agitate readers, e. g. having Moses’ birth 64 years after Joseph’s death, and the rejection of total depravity (p. 151). However, there is much to edify and to stimulate Christians, even to be suggestive for messages in a great chapter.

ANDREW MURRAY

D A Carson writes "the book remains a collection of marvelously pious and spiritually-minded gems strung out on a string of abysmal exegesis."

JOHN OWEN

Rosscup writes - Kregel in Grand Rapids has a 1-volume abridgement that makes the comments more manageable. Owen, a Puritan scholar, was voluminous on just about everything he wrote, and he did many masterful works. Here, the patient will meet with ponderous discussion of connections between New Testament fulfillments in Christ and Old Testament preparation for Him. Much is rich and worthwhile if one has time to sort through the laborious discussions to follow through to what he can use. Theologically Owen has a lot to contribute. He has many points and sees things from various sides, reasons through views and arguments, and often is very helpful to the person who begins his study early enough to devote the time it takes. In Hebrews 6 and 10, Owen decides reference is to mere professors who fall away or shrink back, never having been actually born again.(Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

Spurgeon: "Out of scores of commendations of this colossal work we select but one. Dr. Chalmers pronounced it “a work of gigantic strength as well as gigantic size; and he who hath mastered it is very little short, both in respect to the doctrinal and practical of Christianity, of being an erudite and accomplished theologian.”

Multiple Sermon Transcripts on Hebrews

PETER PETT

A W PINK (caveat)

Rosscup writes - This is a rich study of the English text with many suggestive channels of thought which help the student in preparing messages or lessons. Though Pink’s earlier writings reveal a dispensational belief, his later works such as this and An Exposition of the Sermon on the Mount show a switchover to an amillennial system. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

MATTHEW POOLE

JOHNNY SANDERS

ADOLPH SAPHIR

James Rosscup writes that this work exhibits "Careful insight into the text and fine articulation of the meaning by a Hebrew Christian."

Spurgeon: Mr. Saphir has always something to say worthy of the attention of spiritual minds. His mind finds a track of its own, but he is never speculative. We always enjoy his remarks, though he is not specially terse or brilliant.

MOSES STUART

  • Hebrews 1 Commentary
  • Spurgeon: We are constantly differing from Moses Stuart, but are bound to consult him. He is one of the greatest of American scholars, and this is one of his best comments.

DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (Heb 5:14-note).
