The commentary envisages the recipients of the letter as a community believing itself to be cultically deprived and fearing it must pay the ultimate penalty if it maintains its confession of Christian faith. The supersessionism of Hebrews is defended on the grounds that the author expresses himself with great sensitivity and that in any case Judaism as well as Christianity is supersessionist in relation to the religion of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Other features highlighted include the author's use of a 'contrastive typology' (which is not really a typology at all) and his presentation of Christianity in terms of the language and imagery of cult.
