Goats, Calves, Bulls, and Heifer’s Ashes: Heb 9:12–13 and the Day of Atonement in the Epistle to the Hebrews

McIver, R. K. (2016). Goats, calves, bulls, and heifer’s ashes: Heb 9:12–13 and the day of atonement in the Epistle to the Hebrews. In K. B. De Waal & R. K. McIver (Eds.), No one better: Essays in honour of Dr. Norman H. Young (pp. 91-102). New York, NY: Peter Lang.
This chapter explores in detail one of the major interpretive decisions facing an interpreter of Hebrews 9 and 10—the place of the Day of Atonement in the author's argument. In particular it examines the linking of τράγων (male goats) and μόσχων (calves, young bulls, oxen) in Heb 9:12, and τράγων καὶ ταύρων (bulls) together with the σποδὸς δαμάλεως (ashes of a heifer, young cow) in Heb 9:13.
