Abstract:This dissertation is an attempt at a wholistic approach to the study of the soteriology of the Epistle to the Hebrews. Such an approach is necessary because scholarly studies on the soteriology of the epistle are mainly focused on either the warning passages or on individual aspects of its soteriology. While the first approach addresses such issues as the perseverance of the saints and the nature or extent of salvation, the latter provides topical exposition of individual soteriological terms. The present study investigates the epistle's portrayal of believers' salvation by lexically and exegetically analyzing the spectrum of its soteriological terminology. This analysis reveals that the writer of Hebrews portrays salvation as an enduring New Covenant benefit secured by Christ through his self-offering. This dissertation has six chapters. After the preliminary issues attended to in chapter 1, chapters 2-4 focus on the three motifs under which our writer's soteriological terminology has been categorized. These are the motifs of access, deliverance-restoration, and promise-inheritance. While chapter 2 focuses on the access motif depicted by the various terms from the OT cult which emphasize how God deals with the problem of sin so that his people can approach him, chapter 3 analyzes the deliverance-restoration motif by highlighting the emancipatory and Christus Victor themes. Chapter 4 discusses the promise-inheritance motif. It underscores the future aspect of salvation and the import of God's faithfulness for its certainty. The fifth chapter synthesizes the soteriology of the epistle through the theological framework of [Special characters omitted.] <math> <f> <g>d</g><g>i</g><g>a</g><g>q</g><a><ac><g>h</g></ac><ac></ac></a> <g>k</g><g>h</g></f> </math> and discusses the import of the tenses employed with the soteriological terminology. It also defines the place of human response in the soteriology of Hebrews. Finally, chapter 6 presents the summary and theological conclusions. The modest contribution of the present study is its recognition of the paradigmatic function of the New Covenant in the soteriology of Hebrews and its application to the warning passages. Of the various views on these difficult passages, the mixed-audience view best coheres with the irrevocable provisions of the New Covenant.
