The book of Hebrews is an exception, however, because here &#;Jesus&#; occurs alone eight. But here, in Simply Jesus he attempts to summarize his main thesis for beginners or seekers, naming the “perfect storm” of ancient Israel under the boot heel of Roman imperialism and Jesus showing up with his own unique identity and calling.
