Outside the Camp by David B. Garner

Come Back!

The recipients of the letter to the Hebrews faced uncompromising pressure to compromise. Ridiculed for abandoning their own religious heritage and for extracting themselves from their very own people, these early followers of Christ anguished under tremendous pressures to return to their former life.

After all, were they not first Jews before they heard the gospel of Christ? Did Jesus really come to rob them of their Jewishness? Did the crucified Christ really intend for them to alienate themselves from their family and friends? How could the love of Jesus really require them to abandon these self-defining roots and these mutually meaningful relationships?
