“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” [Hebrews 11:1] There are an abundance of things not seen–an anonymous author to an anonymous congregation–in this Epistle, but its faithfulness shines clearly. Based on new field evidence and rhetorical factors in the text, Dr. John Kleinig endorses the stance that Hebrews is a single, written piece with liturgical elements that suggest it was presented as a sermon. The commentary serves readers as a catechetical, homiletic, liturgical, and pastoral guide through the text of Hebrews, though it remains a valuable academic source with its detailed textual analysis.
