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.

...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.
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
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!
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.
