Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an essay on the Christology of the first and second chapters of the Book of Hebrews. It analyses the book's Christology using the deductive reasoning employed by Sir Arthur Conan Coyle in his books about Sherlock Holmes and examines the parallel between Hebrews and the Books of Psalms and Samuel. It concludes that the first chapter of Hebrews is concerned with the status of one appointed to a glory greater than that of his comrades of angels and that the point of the extravaganza of chapter 1 leads readers of the epistle to the glory of mankind foretold in Psalm 8 and explored in chapter 2.
