    One thought on “Hebrews”

    1. Hagner's short commentary of Hebrews is to be especially recommended to the Bible study leader who wants a quick review of words and ideas in the text. After my own study of Hebrews, it was the first commentary I approached, before diving into thicker tomes (including Koester and Attridge, both recommended). It is tied to the NIV, but is quick to comment on imperfect translation (an earlier reading helped me to move to the NRSV).
