November 2009 Hebrews Carnival

Here are the posts on Hebrews for the month of November:

Stuart Mizelle argues that we should retain the traditional title, "The Epistle to the Hebrews."

Peter Leithart believes that Hebrews 5:7-10 gives an alternative account of Jesus' prayer in Gethsemane. Jesus is delivered from death, but only through death. But do these verses really describe the Gethsemane incident?

Peter Lopez has posted his study notes on Hebrews 8 and reports on Week 7 of his Bible study.

Kenneth Schenck resumes his explanatory notes with Hebrews 11:1-7.

Μετοχος του Χριστου believes that "champion" is the best way to render αρχηγος in Hebrews 12:2.

Rod Decker announces a new commentary series, the Evangelical Exegetical Commentary. The list of commentaries is here. For our purposes here, I note that Buist Fanning is slated to write the volume for Hebrews.

Matthew Montonini announces the forthcoming commentary by Peter T. O'Brien in the Pillar Commentary series. Clifford Kvidahl also takes note of it here.

Clifford Kvidahl also reviews Matthew Thiessen's article "Hebrews and the End of the Exodus."

George has a review of the Hebrews, Life Application Bible Studies (NLT).

On a lighter note (or is that darker?), Hebrews 12:1-2 is now appearing on Tim Tebow's eye black.


  1. I noticed your link to Rod Decker’s post about the EEC, and I wanted to update you on the project. The main Evangelical Exegetical Commentary website. Among other things, it has a list of contributors, release dates, and lots of other information about the project. I thought you might be interested.
