Abstract

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.
