Comparing the old and new covenants, Adolph Saphir’s The Epistle to the Hebrews seeks to elucidate the crucial relationship between atonement in Christ and fulfillment through the law. As a Hungarian Jewish theologian who studied around the world, Saphir possessed a unique perspective on Scripture. His writings continue to influence western understandings of Jewish culture and literature. Discussing structure, semantics, historical context, and exoteric doctrines within the text, Saphir supplies the reader with two volumes of thorough exposition. The first covers chapters one through seven of the book of Hebrews, and the second analyzes chapters eight through 13.
