The author of Hebrews stresses how eternal salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and his power. By committing ourselves to him and acting with faith, we can come boldly to the mercy seat of God.
The Epistle to the Hebrews: A New Rendition, by Michael D. Rhodes and Richard D. Draper
Read here the full epistle of Hebrews in a new rendition, with headings that help identify themes. This new rendition clarifies that “it does not seek to replace the authorized King James Version adopted by the Church as its official English text. Rather, it aims to enhance readers’ understanding conceptually and spiritually by rendering the Greek texts into modern English with LDS sensitivities in mind.”
Formats available are reading online (HTML), Amazon Kindle, Deseret Book, and PDF (best for printing).
The main point at the center of the epistle to the Hebrews is that eternal salvation comes only through Jesus Christ. “It systematically strives to persuade them ‘to hold fast to their faith.’” This piece by Richard D. Draper examines how each chapter in Hebrews individually support this doctrine.
Jesus was both Son of God and a mortal man. Understanding who Jesus was and what he accomplished teaches us how to live and act.
