Publisher's Description

The Teaching of the Epistle to the Hebrews is the work of Geerhardus Vos, a man described as the most penetrating English-language exegete of the twentieth century. This volume contains Vos's classroom lectures on Hebrews, distilling his long teaching experience on the subject into one slim volume. It is especially valuable for its scriptural illumination of such theological subjects as Christology and eschatology.

Vos first examines the strong connection of this New Testament epistle to the Old Testament and explains why the older scripture plays such a prominent role in the new. He then discusses how the concept of the Diatheke — the new covenant promise and lasting testament between God and man — found in Hebrews affects the whole of Christianity. Vos also points out that Hebrews presents its own philosophy of redemption and revelation and that it offers a significant, corrective teaching on the subject of Christian eschatology. Finally he sets forth the epistle's teachings on the priesthood of Christ and the better sacrifice of the new covenant.

Vos's work on Hebrews provides readers with exacting scholarship, illuminating comment, and intensive study — all testifying to his profound love of the Word of God.
