The Hebrews Highlights for the month of January 2014:
Christian Brady proposes a comparison between 1 Maccabees 2 and Hebrews 11. He summarizes his argument when he argues that Hebrews 11 is a Midrash of 1 Macc. 2.
Phillip Long informs us about Frederic W. Farrar and his commentary on Hebrews. Logos is giving away free copies of this commentary in the month of January. He queries What Can We Know about the author of Hebrews? He also asks Why Not Paul? It appears that he is beginning a series on Hebrews:
Hebrews 1 - Jesus and the Angels
Hebrews 1 - Worship Jesus, the Firstborn
Hebrews 3 - Jesus is Superior to Moses
Hebrews 4:14 - A Great High Priest
Hebrews 4:16 - Boldly, Before the Throne of Grace
Mitch Chase comments On the Possible Inclusios in Hebrews 11and the Central Figure in the List of Names. He highlights commonalities of sacrifice in the Three Stories of Sacrifice in the Name-List of Hebrews 11. He also discusses The Strategy of Christology for Your Endurance.
