Product Description

The Epistle to the Hebrews [NICNT] written by first time contributor to the series Gareth Lee Cockerill, and the first volume edited by Joel B. Greene, offers fresh insight into a NT book whose circumstances remain quite enigmatic.

Understood by Cockerill to be a well-constructed sermon that encourages its hearers to persevere despite persecution and hardships in light of Christ's unique sufficiency as Savior, the author aims to analyze the book's rhetorical, chiastic shape while interpreting each passage in light of this overarching structure.

Cockerill also offers a new analysis of the epistle's use of the Old Testament--continuity and fulfillment rather than continuity and discontinuity--and shows how this consistent usage is relevant for contemporary biblical interpretation. Written in a clear, engaging, and accessible style, this commentary will benefit pastors, laypeople, students, and scholars alike.

Endorsements

We are living in an age of incredibly good evangelical commentaries. Gary Cockerill's Hebrews is among the best, a first-rate work that is both readable and very deep. The centrality of rhetorical analysis and structural concerns adds a lot to the value of this work, and his insights about the use of the Old Testament in understanding the book's message are extremely helpful...Readers will gain a fine understanding of this incredibly important epistle and its place in the life of the church.
-Grant Osborne
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

It is no easy task to write a replacement for the work of such a scholar as F. F. Bruce on so demanding a book as Hebrews, but Cockerill amply justifies the trust placed in him by the editor of this series. In particular the attention that Cockerill pays to the author's use of the Old Testament and to the book's structure takes readers beyond Bruce's work. The exposition of the letter is profound and practical and yet so clearly presented that preachers will be particularly grateful for this volume.
-I. Howard Marshall
University of Aberdeen

As in the best commentaries, this volume is more than a rehashing of scholarship; it is also a contribution to the same. Cockerill advances new proposals regarding the structure of the sermon and its author's hermeneutics of the Jewish Scriptures. Cockerill's Hebrews will proudly take its place alongside Attridge's, Lane's, and Koester's commentaries as an essential resource.
-David A. deSilva
Ashland Theological Seminary

Gary Cockerill successfully integrates a thorough immersion in contemporary research on Hebrews with exegetical insight and pastoral sensitivity. This masterfully organized, crisply written commentary pulls together Cockerill's untiring work over the past three and a half decades. I highly recommend it.

Biblical Theology Bulletin 
"The commentary is thorough without bombarding the reader with irrelevant minutiae, shows independence in making exegetical decisions, and is approachable while still giving essential technical details. . . . Helpful and comprehensive. . . . A solid addition to the NICNT series."
 
Journal for the Study of the New Testament 
"The commentary is detailed and readable, and Cockerill succeeds remarkably well in clearly explaining a range of scholarly views about complex issues. . . . The commentary engages throughout with a wide array of relevant literature, including the most recent studies, and it is very evidently the fruit of a long and deep immersion in Hebrews."
 
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society 
"Cockerill’s commentary is a splendid addition to the NICNT and should serve as a standard exegetical resource for many years to come."
 
Denver Journal 
"An exegetically insightful and theologically sensitive reading of Hebrews. . . . Anyone planning to study, teach, or preach through Hebrews should have this commentary at their side."
 
Regent’s Reviews 
"It is comprehensive, sensitive, and thorough, and engages with a wide range of secondary literature through extensive footnotes. . . . A genuine contribution to the study of Hebrews with an accessible analysis of the text. . . . This commentary will be a valuable addition to any pastor’s bookshelf."

    It's becoming increasingly difficult for me to find room on my shelf for another NT commentary. I have been collecting them for decades and they seem to grow in number while my back is turned. But sometimes, you just have to make room. This is such a time.

    I have always been drawn to Hebrews. I have many excellent works on this rich and vibrant letter. Cockerill has written a wonderful commentary. It is full of good sense and thoughtful reflection. It is a balanced work with it's own voice that needs to be heard.
