Questions about the Book of Hebrews

The book of Hebrews is the nineteenth book of the New Testament. This epistle to the Hebrews is an anonymous book. Its authorship has been debated since post-apostolic days. Some scholars have attributed this letter to Paul but there is no conclusive proof of his authorship of Hebrews.The letter was composed prior to the destruction of Jerusalem, since it is evident that the Temple was still standing when Hebrews was written. This Epistle can be divided into three parts: 1) Christ as a person superior to all other persons. 2) The pre-eminence and finality of the priesthood of Christ. 3) The life of faith. The author of this book is unknown. Listed below are questions on the book of Hebrews. These questions can be used freely for Sunday school or bible study to help all young Christians study the scriptures. My prayers are with you always and may God bless you in your studies.
