New Course: NT 588/888: Exegesis of Hebrews
Purpose:
•  To interpret Hebrews in its original, redemptive-historical, and canonical contexts.
•  To read (and understand) the Greek of Hebrews, paying particular attention to important and
    difficult passages.
•  To
appreciate how Hebrews uniquely contributes to our understanding of Biblical Hermeneutics,
    the New Covenant, and the Christian life.

In addition to a heavy emphasis on exegesis, topics covered include prolegomena (especially genre, authorship, and purpose), metaphor and typology in Hebrews, the hermeneutical method of the epistle (particularly the author's use of the OT), and various theological issues (such as the nature of perseverance, the authority of Scripture, and the High Priesthood of Christ).
