This outstanding commentary by David deSilva is the first to apply the full resource of socio-rhetorical analysis to Hebrews. This approach combines the strengths of a higher-critical commentary with a keen interest in showing the relevance of Hebrews for the life and mission of individual believers and whole congregations. The volume also features "A Closer Look" sections that explore relevant aspects of the first-century world and theological issues of special importance to life today.
- Publisher

Hebrews is usually considered an early Christian homily alternating between scriptural interpretation and exhortation. It is saturated with references to the Old Testament, using rather "Platonic" arguments for the superiority of Christ. DeSilva's multi-pronged methodology nicely unravels the dense text.

This commentary is the first to fully apply the resources of socio-rhetorical analysis to Hebrews. Insights into the cultural and social world of the audience are combined with analysis of the author's rhetorical strategy and ideology to create a rich, three-dimensional reading that helps unravel key issues in the interpretation of the epistle. David deSilva's reflections on application concluding each section also make his commentary valuable to seminarians and pastors seeking to make Hebrews relevant to today's world.
