When individuals became Christians in the first century they found themselves under a great deal of pressure from friends, family, and their culture who did not
understand what they had done. They were challenged to reconsider the decision they had made to trust Christ alone for their salvation. The author of the New Testament book of Hebrews writes to help them hold firm to the choice they had made. From his insights we can gain a lot of help even today when faced with questions about the Christian faith.
