In their race to heaven, the recipients of the letter to the Hebrews were in serious danger of falling short of the finish line. As a deeply concerned pastor, brother and friend, the author of this letter aims to exhort his hearers back on course and to keep running the race. His method is to fix their eyes on Jesus, showing them that nothing compares to the Son of God. Jesus is the ultimate revelation of God and through him, God spoke his full and final word to us. He is able to do this because he is the very radiance of the glory of God.
