Class Code: 
NT 404
Class Hours: 

The class is an exegetical study of the Epistles to the Hebrews.  Sessions will try to cover as much of the Epistle as possible.  It is important to understand the material.  Therefore, the class will proceed as the student understands the material.  Introductory material, the theme, and the author will be discussed at the beginning of the class.  The recipients of the Epistle will also be discussed. 

The class lectures will demonstrate that the recipients were in danger of becoming lazy concerning their Christianity.  This laziness was causing people to begin a slippage back into Judaism.  The writer is writing to them in order to warn them of the dangers of such slippage.  The writer also encourages them to remain firm in Christianity since everything Christianity offers is superior to Judaism.
