INTRODUCTION

Like a parent giving out final words of caution to their child as they leave the house, the Hebrew writer in chapter 13 closes his letter with some important words of exhortation and encouragement. Just because these words are included last does not mean that we should dismiss them as mere afterthoughts. As last minute parental advice is often those things that are most important, so too we should regard these commands as important.
