“Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.”
Hebrews 11: 1
“If you consider yourself to be wise and one who understands the ways of God, advertise it with a beautiful, fruitful life guided by wisdom’s gentleness. Never brag or boast about what you’ve done and you’ll prove that you’re truly wise.”
The books of Hebrews and James offer a two-dimensional view of our one faith in Christ. One explores the riches of our believing in Jesus as our Great High Priest, the Author and Perfecter of our faith; the other draws us deeply into our walk with Christ by living out our beliefs. The Passion Translation offers these two amazing books together to help you encounter the heart of God through both believing in Jesus and living out his way of life.
Hebrews means “those who crossed over.” It is written for every believer today, for we have crossed over from darkness to light, from doubt to faith. The magnificent Jesus is evident on every page, where the light of Christ brings truth out from the shadows for all to see. He is our magnificent High Priest who is greater than any sacrifice offered or prophet of old. You will be stirred to enter into the full rest of God by seeing Christ alone as your perfection before the Father.
The book of James is rich with life-changing revelation: a feast to strengthen us and keep us on course. James gives us practical truths about what it means to be declared righteous by God and offers clear insights on faith and walking out the truth. We might view the book of James as the New Testament version of Proverbs for much of its writings speak of God’s heavenly wisdom that can transform us. It enables us to understand the power of faith to produce good works, for as they say: faith works!
