The book of Hebrews is not an epistle, not by Paul or any other eyewitness, and not addressed to a specifically Hebrew audience. In that case, what can be said positively about the author, the form, the genre, the time of composition, or the situation of the readers?
In this commentary, Robert H. Smith confronts the exegetical challenges posed by Hebrews. He offers a lengthy introduction to the authorship and historical situation of the book of Hebrews, and his chapter-by-chapter commentary and detailed outline offer interpretive and historical clues about the origins, purpose, and function of the book. In the end, Smith shows that the core themes of the book of Hebrews—the mediation of Christ and faith of believers—transcend geographical and temporal fixation.
