Hebrews, New International Commentary on the New Testament by Gareth Lee Cockerill and published by Eerdmans.
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.
