Cosmology and Eschatology in Hebrews by Kenneth L. Schenck

Book Description

Scholars argue over where Hebrews fit in the first century world. Kenneth L. Schenck works towards resolving this question by approaching Hebrews' cosmology and eschatology from a text-orientated perspective. After observing that the key passages in the background debate mostly relate to the 'settings' of the story of salvation history evoked by Hebrews, Schenck attempts to delineate those settings by asking how the 'rhetorical world' of Hebrews engages that underlying narrative. Hebrews largely argue from an eschatology of two ages, which correspond to two covenants. The fresh age has come despite the continuance of some old age elements. The most characteristic elements of Hebrews' settings, however, are its spatial settings, where we find an underlying metaphysical dualism between the highest heaven, which is the domain of spirit, and the created realm, including the created heavens. This creation will be removed at the eschaton, leaving only the unshakeable heaven.

Cosmology and Eschatology in Hebrews by Kenneth L. Schenck Cosmology and Eschatology in Hebrews, Paperback (February 2010)

The underlying rhetorical dualism of Hebrews can help identify its philosophical and literary origins.

Understanding the Book of Hebrews by Kenneth L. Schenck Understanding the Book of Hebrews, Paperback (July 2003)

This work takes the epistle's complex argument and re-presents it in terms of the salvation story it tells. It shows how this early Christian sermon reminds the Christian audience that Christ provided a definitive sacrifice for sins and that reliance on any other means of atonement is apostasy.
