One of the difficulties which Hebrews poses for interpretation, its use of sacrificial terminology needs to reason it to appear distant and imprecise. even if the new paintings of social anthropologists at the nature of spiritual structures has been utilized through previous testomony students to the legislation and logos of the Pentateuch (upon which Hebrews attracts in propounding its doctrine of salvation) this is often the 1st sustained learn of Hebrews to take account of those theories. construction at the paintings of such writers as Mary Douglas, Victor Turner, and Claude L?vi-Strauss, Hebrews is approached the following as a 'structure of symbols', within which the symbol-system of the outdated testomony covenant is re-presented and transposed. Motifs explored via the writer comprise sacred time and area; liminality; the sacrificial functionality of blood, loss of life, oaths, and benefits; and the narrative traditions of election and exclusion. Dr Dunnill assesses Hebrews, no longer as a controversy, yet as an act of symbolic communique expressing the opportunity of direct communion with God; he hence goals to spot a few of its underlying buildings and demonstrate the resource of its strength.
