Hebrews is not the first book that most people choose to read. It certainly wasn’t the first book I chose. It is a difficult book to understand in light of the world now, how we live our lives now and how different the world is to the world that the writer is writing to and about. But I think this book is more relevant now than ever. There is indeed much we can, and should learn from the book of Hebrews.
In John verse 9, Jesus meets a man who has been blind since birth. This man has never seen the light, he doesn’t even know what he has missed. He is a blind beggar, unable to do anything useful. This man is dependent on the world around him for charity and scraps. Do you recognize this man?
