The Crossway Classic Commentaries

Original works by godly writers, tailored for the understanding of today's reader

For hundreds of years Christendom has been blessed with Bible commentaries written by great men of God who were highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. The Crossway Classic Commentaries series, carefully adapted for maximum understanding and usefulness, presents the very best work on individual Bible books for today's believers.

The author of Hebrews wanted his audience to know and understand one truth: Christ is superior, and therefore, so is Christianity. He demonstrates this by comparing the imperfect old covenant with the perfect new covenant. The person of Christ is better than prophets and angels, His priesthood is greater than that of Melchizedek and the line of Aaron, and His power within the believer's life is incomparable. Between these contrasts he exhorts the readers to persevere in their faith, be obedient, grow in their understanding, and not miss the grace of God. The lessons and admonitions of Hebrews have intensely practical application for all readers--then and now.

John Owens' unveiling of this text will give pastors and students of the Bible a thorough handle on its key passages. The message of Hebrews proves that Jesus Christ is still the Savior the world needs today. Contemporary believers will be inspired by it as they seek to uphold and defend Christ's supremacy in a pluralistic world.

Review Text

  • By Keith Plant on 13 April 2015

    This is extremely good for what it sets out to do. Essentially this is an abridged version of John Owens seven volume work on Hebrews. As such, not surprisingly, it does have to cut out an awful lot! But quite amazingly it does manage to pick up the main points and certainly the overall tone of his work on the text of Hebrews. It has been well edited and the modernising of the language helps to makes the narrative much easier to read in this day and age. So overall this is a fairly decent exegesis as it does a lot to open up the book of Hebrews. It certainly helps the reader understand the Jewish mind-set that the writer of the letter was very clearly addressing. This Owen does by asserting Christ's work as being the fulfilment of the religious law in that it provides the ultimate sacrifice which has led to Christ's ultimate high priestly role in his continuing interession. It will help get you started if you are preaching on the text, leading a Bible study or just doing personal Bible study. However, if your preaching in any depth you would do well to use this with other commentaries. All in all very helpful and a good place to start if you find Owen's seven volume work proves to be a bit too much to handle in terms of effort and time! Not a substitute for Owen's great theological work (it couldn't be that) but at least a worthwhile alternative!
