Abstract

The study of the Use of the Old Testament (hereafter OT) Quotations in the Epistle to the Hebrews not only reflects the exegetical principles of the author but also helps the formation of the structure and theology in the Epistle. The extensive use of the OT by the author has always been one of the perennial phenomena in the studies of Hebrews. Obviously the main theological themes in the Epistle are taken from it, and the chief arguments are based on the exegesis of it. Furthermore, the structure of the Epistle is "shaped" by the OT quotations. These are the three components; namely, the exegetical principles, the structure, and the theology, this dissertation sets on to work and attempts to discern their relationships. Due to the limited space of a master dissertation, my experimental scope only falls within Hebrews chapters 1 and 2, and I believe that these two chapters can act as a "microcosm" to the whole of the Epistle.
