Item description for Zion Symbolism in Hebrews (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) (Paternoster Biblical Monographs) by Kiwoong Son...

This book challenges the general tendency of understanding the Epistle to the Hebrews against a Hellenistic background and suggests that the Epistle should be understood in the light of the Jewish apocalyptic tradition. The author especially argues for the importance of the theological symbolism of Sinai and Zion (Heb. 12:18-24) as it provides the Epistle's theological background as well as the rhetorical basis of the superiority motif of Jesus throughout the Epistle.

Publishers Description
In order to understand the message of Hebrews, scholars have generally pursued three different hermeneutical issues: thematic study, background thought, and a literary analysis of the Epistle. Interpreters have generally appealed to either Hellenistic philosophy or Jewish tradition in order to understand the intellectual background of the author. This book attempts to find a hermeneutical framework which will help us understand those issues in a coherent way. It is argued that the theological symbolism of Sinai and Zion in Hebrews 12:18-24 provides not only the theological background of the author but also the rhetorical basis of the superiority motif, as well as the author's exegetical principle in Old Testament quotations. The book is divided into two parts. The first is a preliminary study which provides readers with the necessary information to help them appreciate the importance of the Sinai and Zion symbolism. A cluster of theological symbols of the sacred mountains in the Old Testament and their development in the Jewish tradition through the Second Temple Period in the New Testament are discussed. The second part of the book reveals how this theological symbolism actually works in the Epistle showing that the tradition and symbolism of Sinai and Zion underline the author's argument for the supremacy of the person and ministry of Jesus and their theological presupposition throughout the Epistle. Thus Sinai and Zion in Hebrews 12:18-24 are not simply a passing reference but reveal the author's intellectual background and sum up all the preceding argument of the Epistle in the imagery of the two sacred mountains.
