Item Description...
Few studies can be more profitable to Christians today than that of the Epistle to the Hebrews," says Richard Phillips. "Written . . . to a group of Jewish Christians facing persecution in the mid-first century AD, the words of this book speak to Christians everywhere about standing firm in Jesus Christ." Hebrews captures the challenges and pitfalls of people throughout the ages and shows both why and how to press on in the faith. Its message of warning and hope centers on the surpassing supremacy of Jesus, seen often from the vantage point of the Old Testament. In keeping with the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this treatment of Hebrews is accessible to both pastors and lay teachers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.

Publishers Description
Sees in Hebrews a matchless presentation of Jesus Christ as our perfect high priest, and an exhortation to persevere in the faith, even during trials.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hebrews: Reformed Expositor's Commentary  Aug 4, 2008
This commentary is without a doubt clear, concise, and "user-friendly". I learned so much by using this commentary to supplement my recent study of Hebrews. Dr. Philip's applies theology to the average person in the pew in such a way, that you want to devour the commentary rather than being overwhelmed by it. Thank you Dr. Philip's for a much need exposition of Hebrews. I would recommend this commentary to anyone who truly wants to not only study the book, but also to profit and grow in Christlikeness as a result of their study.
The Glory Of Christ  Feb 9, 2008
'In contrast, God's revelation in Christ is not partial or incomplete.' p 13

Richard Phillips counters the push for 'critical thought' made so common by liberal theologians of a century ago in rejecting the doctrine of revelation. Retaining the whole counsel of God, Phillips makes his point of departure the sound exegesis of the deity of Christ - faithful to inerrant inspiration and committed to the cause of wholesome declaration.

'The author describes former revelation as 'coming at many times and in many ways'. These opening verses tell us not merely that God has spoken, but that His final and definitive revelation is in and through His Son.' p 13

We believers are all subjected to one very present, tangible reality; one standard - the divinely inspired Bible. Believers, even indwelt by the Holy Spirit, do not have the final authority as Christ's representative body on earth. Christ, Hebrews teaches, embodies the authority of God. He is, however, seated and at times standing at the right hand of the Father. In the 4th chapter of the Epistle, the Christian state of 'rest' is attained only in the future age, finding its deeper fulfillment and ultimate feat in the rest of God.

'When we say that God rested (Heb 4:4), we do not mean that He went on vacation or removed His care from our world. After having made and ordered and subdued the creation according to His desired plan, His control was so absolute, His sovereignty so unquestioned, that God enthroned Himself without effective opposition. His reign is one of rest - that is, absolute supremacy and unassailable sovereignty - so much so that He exerts all His rule from the position of rest.' p 119

The author notates abundantly thereof, and thereby commends to us the new covenant in Christ. The importance of the new covenant must not be underestimated, according to the writer of the epistle to Hebrews, and so too, Richard Phillips: 'the new covenant that came in Christ was promised even in the days of the old covenant.' The Christ of the covenants is the end/goal of the promises and the law. 'Jeremiah 31 shows that a new covenant will come to bring that to pass; the writer of Hebrews points out that this proves the deficiency of the old covenant. Now that the promised new covenant has come, it would be gravest folly to go back to the old one it supplanted: 'Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old, as the covenant He mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.' p 278

'The perfect identification of Christ with God, therefore, is necessary to the belief that the Son has brought the highest and final revelation and raised the covenant-intercourse to a point beyond which it cannot be perfected.' Geerhardus Vos, Redemptive History & Biblical Interpretation, ed. Richard Gaffin Jr. p 189

Phillips selects his following words with the utmost care: 'The point is reinforced in Hebrews 8:13, which points out that the old covenant religious system would soon be done away with altogether. It is possible that this reflects an awareness of the events of AD 70, which were perhaps about to take place, when the Romans conquered Jerusalem and destroyed the temple once and for all. The argument in Hebrews, however, is simply that the new covenant necessitates abandonment of the old: 'In speaking of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.' p 278 Phillips is able to interpret the fall of the temple and the cessation of the sacrifices as God's suggestion that other means now replace temple service - means that make atonement eternally effective.

In charismatic circles another 'strange doctrine' is now seen at work: God detests the prayers of those who do not obey His Word. Is this based on Scripture? Phillips then questions rightfully, 'What does it mean to approach the throne of grace? It means to come to God in prayer on the basis of Christ's high-priestly ministry; that is, His propitiating sacrifice and present intercession.' p 150

'We come before the throne not for judgment, but for blessing.' p 36
Edmund Clowney, How Jesus Transforms The Ten Commandments

Concern for personal subjective experiences comes to the fore in Phillips' next chapter on Heb 9:1-10. 'Our access to God is secured forever through Jesus Christ because of His finished and sufficient work. The Spirit's work within us reminds us that we are now in fellowship with God and imparts to us the knowledge of His grace.' p 293 Grace is never inoperable. Phillips finds it pertinent to remind us of the victorious life coterie (e.g. Andrew Murray) whom BB Warfield expended much effort refuting. The same views have been upheld by the higher life advocates, and Phillips addresses their teaching of the 'zoë', higher life as opposed to the 'sarkical', carnal Christian, which differentiates between two types of Christian. Phillips forced analysis is evidence of the persistence of this 'strange doctrine' (e.g. Joyce Meier) and he carefully exegetes this section of Scripture to prove his contention that the distinction made by the author of Hebrews 'is not between two types of Christians, higher and lower, but between the old covenant and the new covenant.' p 294 Positive confessionists that promote perfectionism, remain ineffective, yet damaging as 'there are no spiritual Christians for whom struggle is gone in this life, who have entered into a stage of perfect sanctification.' p 295 The unnecessary distinction presuming and professing to offer a higher knowledge and a 'most blessed state' is decidedly not Scriptural. All Christians enjoy the same degree of access to their heavenly Father through their perfect union with Christ.

Perfecting the saints below, the author of Hebrews chooses to connect the work and Person of Christ to our blessedness: 'Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin.' Hebrews 10:18
