Item description for Endurance in Suffering: Hebrews 12:1-13 in its Rhetorical, Religious, and Philosophical Context (Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series) by N. Clayton Croy...

Overview
Hebrews 12:1-13 portrays the suffering of its readers with two images: an athletic contest, and God's fatherly discipline. N. Clayton Croy places this important passage in the context of Jewish and Greco-Roman traditions. He argues that the idea of "training" unites the passage, which presents Jesus as the supreme athlete. It also supports a nonpunitive understanding of discipline, in which God's children undergo a positive process of education. These ideas combine to support a call in Hebrews to faithful endurance rather than repentance.

Publishers Description
Hebrews 12: 1-13 portrays the suffering of the community to which it is addressed by means of two images: an athletic contest and God's fatherly discipline. N. Clayton Croy provides a thorough exploration of the theme of suffering in the Jewish and Graeco-Roman traditions and surveys the different interpretations of this passage which have been offered by Christian writers over the centuries. He argues that the concept of training unites the passage, which presents Jesus as the supreme athlete, an agonistic exemplar for those running the race. These verses also support a non-punitive understanding of discipline in which God's children undergo a positive process of education. The educative notion of paideia combines with images of athletic training to establish a call to faithful endurance rather than repentance.
