Richard Bauckham has edited a new volume on the epistle to the Hebrews, Cloud of Witnesses: The Theology of Hebrews in Its Ancient Contexts. It’s the latest installment in T & T Clark’s series “Library of New Testament Studies.”
Dr. Barry Joslin of Boyce College contributes an outstanding essay on the law in Hebrews titled, “Hebrews 7-10 and the Transformation of the Law.” Among other things, he argues that in Christ the Old Testament Law has been “transformed” such that the artificial categories of “civil, ceremonial, and moral laws” might be curtailed.
Joslin is also the author of the forthcoming volume from Paternoster, Hebrews, Christ and the Law: The Theology of the Mosaic Law in Hebrews 7:1-10:18. Joslin’s contributions to the field of Hebrews studies is growing. Because discussions about the relationship between Law and Gospel are often dominated by Paul’s interpreters, those interested in a biblical theology of the Law will have to deal with what Joslin in saying.
Other contributors include Gareth Cockerell (author of the forthcoming NICNT volume on Hebrews), Craig Blomberg, and Ardel Caneday.
