Deuteronomy and Exhortation in Hebrews: A Study in Narrative by David M. Allen

By David M. Allen

David M. Allen examines the best way Deuteronomy operates in the paraenetic sections of Hebrews, either at a micro-level (in phrases of quotation or allusion to the earlier textual content) and at a macro-level (how extensive Deuteronomic topics are handled in the discourse). there's huge therapy of Deuteronomic quotations and echoes, quite from the music of Moses (Deut 32), in addition to research of Hebrews' borrowing of Deuteronomy's covenantal blessing/cursing imagery. the writer discusses the best way Hebrews stocks Deuteronomy's sermonic tone and paraenetic urgency, and the way either texts rhetorically place their viewers on the threshold of access into their salvation objective, typified by way of the promised land. He extra discusses how Hebrews replays Deuteronomy's use of the wasteland new release because the paradigm of covenantal disobedience and the way either texts express a posh interweaving of the prior, current and destiny moments. eventually, David M Allen examines the level to which Hebrews stands within the culture of 're-presentations' of Deuteronomy, echoing the way different 2d Temple Jewish texts alluded to it for the needs in their respective groups. He concludes that Hebrews doesn't simply use Deuteronomy; it turns into a 'new' Deuteronomy and demanding situations its predecessor's modern hegemony.
