It has been observed by some commentators that one of the ways that the book of Hebrews stands out from other New Testament literature is in its infrequent mention of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. At least one writer has even gone so far as to say there is no mention of it at all. A survey of the book of Hebrews, however, reveals that the hope of every believer – the resurrection on the Last Day – is a theme that permeates the epistle, and that this hope is based on the resurrection’s first fruit, Jesus Christ. Even if it is not a prominent theme, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is everywhere presupposed in this epistle. This being a week when the church historically gives greater attention to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, this Sunday we will survey the book of Hebrews for its many allusions to the resurrection.
