Reading the Epistle to the Hebrews without Presupposing Supersessionism

Svartvik, Jesper LU (2011) p.77-91
Abstract
The Epistle to the Hebrews has been an exceptionally significant text in Christian-Jewish relations. In particular, certain passages have been interpreted in ways that assume that Christianity supersedes Judaism. In this article it is argued that reading the epistle without presupposing supersessionism, Heb. will be acknowledged as one of those subject matters which, in the words of Nostra Aetate, “human beings have in common and which tend to bring them together” (… quae hominibus sunt communia et ad mutuum consortium ducunt).
