Abstract:

"In Hebrews and the Temple Philip Church argues that the silence of Hebrews concerning the Temple does not mean that the author is not interested in the Temple. He writes to encourage his readers to abandon their preoccupation with it and to follow Jesus to their eschatological goal.

Now that the eschatological moment has arrived with the exaltation of Christ to the right hand of God, preoccupation with the Temple and its rituals must cease"--
