Rabbi Tovia Singer Responds to the the Book of Hebrews Lengthily Indictment Against Judaism
The Epistle to the Hebrews (or the Book of Hebrews) sets out to demonstrate that Judaism’s chief institutions were merely temporal and provisional. The Jews, its author argues, never really understood the true meaning of their Sabbath, messianic prophecies, temple sacrifices, and priesthood. They didn’t grasp that these were only images that prefigured and foreshadowed Jesus. Moreover, the writer of this anonymous letter proclaimed that Jewish practice is finally superseded and entirely obsolete. In this eye-opening show, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores these claims and charges as he delves into the Christian attitude that was shaped by this controversial epistle.
