Answer: God

It says in Hebrews 1:1, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets."

It is unknown who wrote the book of "Hebrews"; early Bible scholars tended to think it was Paul. However, unlike Paul's other letters, he does not mention himself in this epistle.

4 The word "Hebrews" never appears in the book. Why, then, has it been given this name?
Answer: The name stuck after it was used by a second century theologian who thought the book was aimed at Jewish Christians.

The book has no title and no named author. It was originally attributed to Paul but its style makes this extraordinarily unlikely. Other candidates have included Apollos, Barnabas, Clement, Epaphras, Luke, Priscilla and Silas but none with any great conviction. The task is virtually impossible as there are no biographical details and insufficient clues to allow an accurate dating or even to know who or where the recipients are.

Tertullian was the second century theologian responsible for the book gaining its title. He championed the claim of Barnabas to be the author of, in his words, "The Epistle to the Hebrews". He assumed, from the Old Testament allusions and central idea of Jesus as celestial high priest, that the book was written to Jewish Christians. This has since been challenged by those who note that, despite this, there is the assumption that all of the old Jewish practices have been superseded. This, they claim, makes it more likely to be aimed at Gentile Christians as part of the ongoing debate about what constituted proper Christian practice.

Answer: tempted

I had to look up the word "succour" and I found that it means help.

7 According to Hebrews 1 of the NIV Bible, which is higher ranking, Jesus or the Angels?
Answer: Jesus

"For to which of the angels did God ever say,
'You are my Son; today I have become your Father'?
Or again, 'I will be his Father, and he will be my Son?'
And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says,
'Let all God's angels worship him.'"-Hebrews 1:5-6.

We see in these verses and additional references in Hebrews 1 that Jesus is higher than the angels. However, it does say in Hebrews 2 that Jesus was made lower than the angels for a little while so that he could taste death for everyone.

8 Only two people are said to have never died. The faith of which one of the two is mentioned in Hebrews, chapter 11?
Answer: Enoch

This can be found in Hebrews 11:5-6. Enoch and Elijah are the two who never died, but oddly Enoch was the one mentioned in this chapter.
The Bible doesn't say how Enoch was taken; it just says that God took him away and that he was no more.
Elijah was taken to Heaven in a chariot of fire in 2 Kings 2. Elisha was called to be a prophet by God through Elijah and, after Elijah was taken, he continued the work of God in Elijah's place.
Methuselah was the person who was recorded in Genesis as living the longest; having lived 969 years before his death.

9 According to Hebrews 4:1-11, in the King James Version we are told that God has finished or will finish his work at a particular time. When does it say that time is or will be?
Answer: from the foundation of the world.

The last part of the third verse says, "...although the works were finished from the foundation of the world." In other words, God's work is already completed, but we, as actors upon a stage, must go through our lines and be given the opportunity to make our choices freely.

10 Which of the following song titles comes closest to a subject that is at the centre of the letter's first two chapters?
Answer: Angels

"After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs." (Hebrews 1 v. 3-4)

The argument in these chapters is twofold:
1. Jesus is superior to the angels;
2. Jesus became human - "a little lower than the angels" (Hebrews 2 v. 9) - but came through death to heaven, in order that others might do so too.

All of the titles were hits for the British singer, Robbie Williams.
    Your options: [ Eternity ] [ Millennium ] [ Angels ] [ Sin, Sin, Sin ]
