Hebrews 12:
14 Pursue peace with all, and pursue apartness without which no one shall see the Master.

Who was this written to?

Why was the book of Hebrews written?

The book has earned the reputation of being a masterpiece. It has also been described as an intricate New Testament book. Scholars believe it was written for Jewish Christians who lived in Jerusalem. Its purpose was to exhort JEWISH CHRISTIANS to persevere in the face of persecution.

Written to: Natzarenes/Jewish Christians/ Spiritual Israelites (Not Catholics nor Protestants, nor Pharisees, Sadducees, nor Orthodox Jews)

In the 4th century, Jerome and Augustine of Hippo supported Paul's authorship: the Church largely agreed to include Hebrews as the fourteenth letter of Paul, and affirmed this authorship until the Reformation. Scholars argued that in the 13th chapter of Hebrews, Timothy is referred to as a companion. Timothy was Paul's missionary companion in the same way J-sus sent disciples out in pairs. Also, the writer states that he wrote the letter from "Italy", which also at the time fits Paul.[16] The difference in style is explained as simply an adjustment to a distinct audience, to the JEWISH CHRISTIANS {THERE WAS NO CHRISTOLOGY AS WHAT IS KNOWN TODAY AS IN THAT ERA} who were being persecuted and pressured to go back to traditional Judaism.[17] Many scholars now believe that the author was one of Paul's pupils or associates, citing stylistic differences between Hebrews and the other Pauline epistles.[18] Recent scholarship has favored the idea that the author was probably a leader of a predominantly Jewish congregation to whom he or she (?) was writing.[19]

Those who had made a covenant or are in the process/proselytes with Yahweh the Father by His Torah [The marital agreement!] in the Name of Messiah, Yahweh's anointed Son-Yahshua.

Seeking peace, especially on the 7th day shabbath. If we love Yahweh we guard His truth as a very special commodity!

Eccl.3:8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for battle, and a time for peace

In set apart season or outside!

Jude: 3 Beloved ones, making all haste to write to you concerning our common deliverance, I felt the necessity to write to you urging you to earnestly CONTEND for the belief which was once for all delivered to the set-apart ones.

Peace when there is no peace or concord with the idolaters, blasphemers and rebellious Christologists.

2 Cor. 6: 14 Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness?

15 And what agreement has Messiah with Beliya‛al? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?

16 And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.

Peace yes with those who are Israelites especially, but the word must go forth straightforwardly. The zeal of Yahweh of Hosts expects that of His people. Christologists are not Yahweh's people no matter how sincere they are because they have doctrines that are opposed to Torah.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Messiah Yeshua.
