Series Information

Description: The primary focus of this book is to demonstrate how Hebrews represent, in view of its historical and religious context, human fidelity to God. In order to provide a fresh perspective on this issue Whitlark examines Hebrews understanding of fidelity from the perspective of its authorial audience. His conclusions have far reaching implications for understanding the soteriology of Hebrews, the authors and the auditors presumed experience of salvation in Jesus Christ, and how the message of the supremacy of Jesus Christ was heard in the context Hebrews presupposes.
