After 20 years as a professor at UCLA, Dr. Bill Creasy partnered with Logos Bible Study to create this series of thoughtful lectures on the scriptures. This discussion of Hebrews, as part of the series, provides a unique and insightful look into this pivotal text. Dr. Creasy tackles tough issues, including Hebrews' authorship and the process of salvation from the world into the family of God. Dr. Creasy's lecture engages audiences with dramatic pacing, poignant questions, and a warm tone.
Once thought to have been written by Paul, Hebrews is in fact written by one of Paul’s inner circle prior to A.D. 70, but no one knows exactly who. Addressed to Jewish Christians, our author examines several key issues from a Jewish perspective, drawing heavily upon the Torah for his support. In the marvelous chapters 7-10, our author sees Christ foreshadowed in the Tabernacle; the five great sacrifices of Leviticus; the priest Melchezedek from Genesis 14; and the Law itself. All, our author argues, are merely copies or shadows of the good things that were to come. Hebrews draws deeply on the Hebrew Scriptures, seeing Christ on every page. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores this marvelous book.

Together with his knowledge of the Middle East ,customs of the time and more importantly he is a true Christian , what a wonderful learning experience
I liked this study so much that as soon as I finished it I listened to it again. We are doing a study group on Hebrews at our church and listening to this also has really helped. Highly recommended.
...the Bible, as literature.
I find Dr Creasy likeable and enjoyable to listen to. He often provides interesting factual, historical context which I have not read elsewhere. Definitely worth a listen.
Dr. Creasy is an unparalleled Teacher. He is engaging and knowledgeable. He explains how we know Paul is not the author of Hebrews and how we know the general timing of the book. He connects Hebrews back to Genesis and forward to Revelation. Highly excellent teaching!
This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
I loved this teaching because Hebrews is so packed with information and Dr. Creasy breaks it down verse by verse so it's easily understood.
I would highly recommend any of Bill Creasy's teaching to anyone who desires a thorough understanding of the Bible.
"A good all round intro to Hebrews"
DR Creasy covers Hebrews chapter by chapter emphasising the 5 major themes and concentrating on the new covenant made with Christ's shed blood redemption as the final and glorious covenant.
This audio presentation would be a good first tool to use in order to study Hebrews as a whole and therefore would be a good place to start initial study just as an overview.
This study will lay a good foundation for further study.
