The Two Edged Sword


The “Better Than” Book

Hebrews is the “Better Than” Book. This New Testament book points the way to a better life. In it you will find references to things that are better many, many times. Some examples are:

Christ is:

better than angels – 1:4
worthy of more glory than Moses – 3:3
the builder of the house (the creator) and as such has more honor than the creation - 3:4
a great High Priest (4:4) which is better then men’s high priests – 5:1-2


Men swear by things that are better then themselves, but God swears by Himself. Why? Because He is better than everything else. 6:13-16


It tells of:
a better covenant enacted on better promises – 8:6
a greater more perfect tabernacle – 9:11
a better possession – 10:34
a kingdom which cannot be shaken (a better kingdom) – 12:28
and a better city – 11:10 & 13:14

What could be better than that?

    Beautiful thought! Thanks for sharing!

    And in case you were wondering, I just came across your blog by doing a bit of blog-suring. I just added myself as a follower and I hope you'll check out my Christian devotional blog as well.

    Have a blessed day!
