The books of Hebrews and James offer a two-dimensional view of our one faith in Christ. One explores the riches of our belief 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 magnificent 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. You will be stirred to enter into the full rest of God by seeing Christ alone as our perfection before the Father. The book of James is rich with life-changing revelation, a feast to strengthen us and keep us on course. We might view the book of James as the New Testament version of Proverbs, for its writings speak of God's heavenly wisdom that can transform us. They enable us to understand the power of faith to produce good works because Faith Works!
