Herbert W. Bateman

Early Jewish Hermeneutics and Hebrews 1:5-13: The Impact of Early Jewish Exegesis on the Interpretation of a Significant New Testament Passage illustrates the significance of extra-biblical material for understanding the way the New Testament uses the Old Testament. Emphasis is laid on the early Jewish hermeneutical milieu of the New Testament era and the specific impact it had on the author of Hebrews. Methods of early Jewish interpretation are observed in various Qumran scrolls and then compared with Hebrews 1:5-13. The work not only reveals the unmistakable influences of early Jewish hermeneutics in Hebrews 1:5-13, it demonstrates the importance of early Jewish material for understanding the use of the Old Testament in the Book of Hebrews.
