Throughout the book, the Preacher of Hebrews warns his readers not to return to Judaism, but to remain faithful to Christ and so receive their inheritance.

When we studied the book of Revelation, we encountered an incredible scene in the heavenly throne room (Rev. 4).  In the right hand of God the Father is the seven-sealed scroll containing the Title Deed of Mankind's Inheritance waiting to be opened (Rev. 5:1-3). The Apostle John bursts into tears because no one in all the universe is found worthy to open it (Rev. 5:4). No angel, no human, not even the Father nor the Spirit are worthy!

The only person in all the universe worthy to open the scroll is Jesus (Rev. 5:5-14). Hebrews 2:10-18 explains how it is that only Jesus is worthy.  It is because He is the only person in all the universe qualified to accomplish God's purposes and promises for mankind.

Hebrews 2:10-18 explains why that is.
