The Book of Hebrews and its Reliance on the Old Testament

The Book of Hebrews has challenged theologians for centuries. The problem is caused in part by the large number of citations and references to the Hebrew Scriptures, which lead to conclusions that are not well understood. The question we ask is this: "What method was the author of Hebrews using?" In this lecture Dr. Davis shares her research on ancient methods of midrash in which the people at the time of Jesus searched the Scriptures for deeper meaning behind the simple or plain meaning of the words. She will help you develop a "first century mind," and will enrich your understanding of the Old Testament as it relates to the Book of Hebrews.
