The structure of the book
1. The Superiority of God’s revelation (1:1-4).
2. The superiority of Christ to the leaders of the Old Covenant (1:5-7:28).
3. The superiority of the rest in the New Creation (chs. 3 and 4).
4. The superiority of the Sacrifice and ministry of our High Priest (chs. 5-10).
5. The superiority of the New Covenant over the Old (chs. 8-10).
6. The superiority of the new and living way (chs 10 –12).
