Within the field of NT studies, the history of the study of Hebrews has been called a 'Cinderella story' - a bit of a mystery tome without clear origin or lucid purpose, overshadowed by study of Paul and the Gospels, yet with some admirers of its style, which is superior to other NT literature, its lofty Christology and its inspiring spirituality. This course will seek to profile George Guthrie's major theological themes by means of exposition of key passages in a manner that will seek to prepare the way for her coronation in the pulpit. Investigating themes like Christ's essential deity and messiahship, his true and vicarious humanity, his Melchisedecan priesthood and his atonement will uncover their relevance to a number of debates in contemporary theology, as well as for pastoral matters like salvation, assurance, sanctification, earthy spirituality and restoring Christ to the centre of the church's worship and mission.
