The author and intended readers of the Epistle to Hebrews lived in a cultural setting dominated by two religious, cultural and linguistic traditions, designated here “Hebraic” and “Hellenic”. The language and imagery of Hebrews has been drawn from both traditions. Fresh analysis of expressions in the epistle’s opening two verses provide evidence of a tighter mix of traditions than has be previously noted. Awareness of the impact of these two traditions on the expressions of the epistle will aid interpreters in their search for the author’s intended meaning.
