Thanks to a couple of people who commented on yesterday's post for pointing out that Hebrews was written to the Jewish people. I was sort of coming to that conclusion when they were listing OT characters and stating how much better Jesus is than them, more of that today.

So, basically a whole book of the bible is dedicated to 'my religion is better than yours' (or my covenant is more faultless than yours) directed at the Jews. From the outside this all seems a bit petty.

A bit of 'the sacrifice in my religion is superior to the ones in yours' (Jesus' blood versus the blood of goats and sheep).

Also, the punishment for rejecting the OT laws was merely death, having contempt for Jesus and insulting the Holy Spirit will lead to a terrifying ordeal at the hands of a vengeful God.
