The book of Hebrews was written to those Christians who had all their lives been taught that the only way to God was through the priests, and that the only way to atone for your sins was through sacrifices, offered by priests, at the Temple in Jerusalem

It seeks to demonstrate that this was only a shadow of what was to come. That Christ had sacrificed once for all for the salvation of mankind, and had made a direct route to God through him for all who believe.

That now the 'Holy of holies' - the place where God dwelt, was open to all.
