Product Description

(PUBEerdmans)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. 560 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

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.

    If you want to thoroughly understand the book of Hebrews, you should get this book. The author first delves into the background of Hebrewswho its intended audience was, who wrote it, when, where, etc. Next, he explains the authors goals and how the author makes use of first century techniques of persuasion to reach his audience. Then, deSilva breaks Hebrews up into ten distinct passages, providing an overview, detailed commentary and summary for each. Important issues, whether theological, historical or cultural, receive special attention. In addition, deSilva provides great insights into how to apply the messages found in each passage to our lives today. This inspiring commentary will greatly enrich your understanding, not only of one of the New Testaments most difficult books, but also of Christs work on the crosswork for which we should all be grateful.

    This recently developed exegetical method is very helpful in understanding cultural and sociological background as well as the use of ancient rhetoric by the writers of the New Testament. DeSilva's contribution is especially helpful for understanding the fact that "honor and shaming" were tools of social control in the ancient world, and this is directly related to the purpose and structure of the "Letter to the Hebrews." He shows how the art of rhetoric is also related to the structure of Hebrews. DeSilva makes use of the giant works of William Lane and Harold Attridge, but he provides us with his own unique contribution as well. I would not use it in isolation, but I think it is an indespensible contribution to studies in this letter. The introduction is excellent and provides details of the Socio-Rhetorical method of exegesis in general and especially as applied to Hebrews. A fine work that is as interesting as it is helpful.
