This book seeks to fill a lacuna in studies of the Epistle to the Hebrews, namely, the writer's theology of the Mosaic Law, which is seen most clearly in the doctrinal center of the book, 7:1-10:18. Joslin concludes that for the writer of Hebrews the work of Christ has transformed the Law, and that this transformation involves both its fulfillment and internalization in the New Covenant; the Law has forever been affected christologically. As such, there are continuous and discontinuous aspects of the Law that turn on the hinge of Christ, the writer's chief 'hermeneutical principle'.Table of Contents Preface xv Abbreviations xvii Chapter 1 An Introduction to the Theology of the Mosaic Law in Hebrews 7:1-10:18 1 Introduction 1 Thesis 2 Scope 5 Scholarly Contributions 6 No Ongoing Validity in the New Covenant Era 8 Ongoing Validity in the New Covenant Era 14 Conclusion 20 Method 21 Chapter 2 The Law in Second Temple Judaism 23 Introduction 23 Old Testament Apocrypha 25 The Wisdom of Ben Sira 27 1 Maccabees 31 2 Maccabees 34 Tobit 37 1 Baruch 39 Conclusion 42 Old Testament Pseudepigrapha 42 2 Baruch and 4 Ezra 43 Introduction 43 2 Baruch 45 4 Ezra 48 Jubilees 52 4 Maccabees 55 Conclusion 58 Josephus 59 Introduction 59 Josephus' Own Testimony 61 Concerning the Law 61 Jews and the Law 62 Josephus' Two Summaries of the Law 65 Conclusion 66 Philo of Alexandria 67 Introduction 67 The Law of Moses and the Law of Nature 68 Philo and the Patriarchs 71 The Law and the Jewish People 72 Conclusion 74 The Dead Sea Scrolls 74 Introduction 74 The Community Rule (1QS) 75 The Damascus Document (CD) 81 Conclusion: The Community Rule (1QS) and the Damascus Document (CD) 85 Conclusion 87 Chapter 3 Hebrews 7:1-10:18 and the Structure of Hebrews 91 Introduction 91 Major Issues and Approaches 92 Donald Guthrie 95 Leon Vaganay 97 Ceslas Spicq 100 Wolfgang Nauck 102 Albert Vanhoye 104 F.
