Synopsis: The interest that Hebrews holds today is testimony to its enduring message. Central to its message is what Jesus Christ did and continues to do for his people. This is spelled out in arresting images. Dr. McKelvey provides new insight on Hebrews by demonstrating that two of its chief images - pioneer and priest - function not independently but in tandem. Christ is not pioneer without also being priest, and his priesthood is only properly understood in terms of the pioneer figure. Only one who is both pioneer and priest can provide the church with the help it needs. The double analogy in fact conveys the meaning of the Christian faith. This creative work takes account of the author's rhetorical style, showing how Hebrews is addressed to an urgent practical situation. It will appeal to those who want to know more about Hebrews as well as those who believe that the emerging church must follow Christ "outside the camp"

About the Author: ROBERT JOHN MCKELVEY, who holds a doctorate in New Testament from the University of Oxford, trained ordinands in South Africa from 1959 to 1979, when he became principal of Northern College in Manchester and lecturer in New Testament in the University of Manchester. He has authored several books on the New Testament. In retirement, he is an honorary research fellow in the University of Manchester and undertakes duties in the United Reformed Church.

It will appeal to those who want to know more about Hebrews as well as those who believe that the emerging church must follow Christ outside the camp. Endorsements: This clear and careful exploration of the dual Christology of Hebrews may itself prove, as McKelvey describes the epistle, a pastoral response to the needs of Christians in crisis. --Paul Ellingworth, former translation consultant with the United Bible Societies In this highly accessible study, Hebrews is read as a response to the needs of a community in crisis. . . . Written with a sense of urgency and with contemporary Christian communities in mind, this book makes a substantial contribution to the recent resurgence of interest in Hebrews and is in itself pioneering in several ways. --George J. Brooke, Rylands Professor, University of Manchester This book makes an original and insightful contribution to scholarly discussion on the Christology of the Epistle to the Hebrews, and is essential reading for all scholars of the epistle. It is an invaluable resource for theology students with its clear, measured, and stimulating analysis of the major issues of the epistle, and also for hard-pressed, modern-day Christians with its meticulously researched insights into the author of Hebrews pastoral strategies. --J. C. McCullough, Professor Emeritus, Union Theological College, Belfast Author Biography: Robert John McKelvey, who holds a doctorate in New Testament from the University of Oxford, trained ordinands in South Africa from 1959 to 1979, when he became principal of Northern College in Manchester and lecturer in New Testament in the University of Manchester.
