James Swetnam, «The Context Of The Crux At Hebrews 5,7-8», Vol. 14 (2001) 101-120
An article in Biblica by the present author outlined a proposed solution for the crux at Heb 5,7-8. The present article will attempt to put this proposed solution in the general and particular context of the structure of the first six chapters of the epistle. This contextualization should help indicate the intention of the author of Hebrews and thus clarify and further commend the proposed solution. The structure on which this contextualization is based is, like the solution to the crux at Heb 5,7-8, a suggestion, to be judged on the intrinsic merits or lack thereof of the arguments adduced.
