Excerpt from A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Epistle to the HebrewOne special reason for the delay in issuing the book has been the need of working through the materials supplied for the criticism of the text by von Soden’s So/zrzften do: Neuen Testaments (1913) and by some subsequent discoveries, and also the need of making a first-hand study of the Wisdom literature of Hellenistic Judaism as well as of Philo. Further, I did not feel justified in annotating Hpbs ‘ebpai’ovs without reading through the scattered ethical and philosophical tracts and treatises of the general period, like the De Manda and the remains of Teles and Musonius Rufus.
