    One thought on “Letters to the Church: A Survey of Hebrews and the General Epistles

    1. Jesse Atkinson

      Overall a decent overview of the Hebrews to 3 John, and it is often concerned with practical application, a definite plus given its scholarly intent.However, the book was often frustrating. Some of the sections on authorship were far too lengthy given that the authorship of books like Hebrews is neither here nor there. Knowing who wrote the book and when generally does not help the interpreter at all. Moreover, some of the argumentation was extremely speculative and empty (e.g James' supposed "r [...]

    2. Wade

      This is a great book on all of the New Testament letters not written by Paul, which includes Hebrews (dependent upon your view of the authorship of Hebrews).

    3. Jason Knecht

      Karen Jobes is a capable scholar who deals judiciously with the text and the various issues arising from interpretive tangles. I have been so impressed with this volume that I have committed to reading all of her works. Anyone who interacts with Jobes' wonderful exposition of Hebrews and the General Epistles will benefit greatly.

    5. Mike Jorgensen
