Publisher's Summary

This letter is one of the two greatest theological treatises of the New Testament. It is the ''Leviticus'' of the New Testament, detailing how the Lord Jesus Christ is both the fulfillment and the successor to all that had gone on before. This study will contrast conditional promises of the past with unconditional promises of the New Covenant: exchanging the shadows for substance. The Calvinist and Arminian viewpoints will be explored. This third of the trilogy on Habakkuk 2:4, ''The Just shall live by faith,'' addresses profound aspects of ''faith'' which challenge even the most diligent student.

Author is not a Theologian

The author does not exegete which means he is not an expounder or textual interpreter. In the narration of the Book of Hebrews, he overlooks very important themes, particularly the Priesthood of Christ in the life of the Believer. He has a very broad approach to the text and digresses extensively from the subject of the text, even to teach on Psalm 2 and the Book of Revelation so that it is hard to tell what chapter of the book is that he is supposed to be teaching on. He also inserts extended sections with a very secular approach as he will remark on a concept, like systems for example, and give a scientific equation which may be accurate and interesting but if you wanted commentary on the Book of Hebrews, you are not getting it. As well, he gets a concept drawn from the text that spawns a thought about some other Book of the Bible that he likes, but does not make the attempt to exegete or give an understanding of the book he is currently teaching about and in the context wherein it is written. There is no regard for the continuity of the subject matter in the teaching.

At times he reveals his lack of knowledge by asserting certain things about the book he is teaching on where if he knew the canon selection process, he would know that he has no premise to assert certain remarks about the authors and purpose for which the book is written, etc.

The author does a great job of entertainment in his dissertation but says things that are very dangerous as he undercuts the very foundation of the terms of being selected for the canon of scripture and other remarks that are of the nature of folklore.
