                      "THE EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS"

                             Chapter Three

Having demonstrated Jesus' superiority to prophets and angels, the
author now compares Jesus to Moses (1-6).  The comparison is followed
with a reference to Israel's unfaithfulness in wilderness which leads to
the second of six warnings in this epistle:  a warning against
departing from the living God by developing an evil heart of unbelief
