Description: which is seen most clearly in the doctrinal center of the book, 711018. Joslin concludes that for the writer of Hebrews the work of Christ has transformed the Law and that this transformation involves both its fulfillment and internalization in the New Covenant. As such, there are continuous and discontinuous aspects of the Law that turn on the hinge of Christ, the writers chief hermeneutical principle.
