Title: What has been Changed in the Law of Hebrews?
Author(s): REGEV, Eyal
Volume: 98 Issue: 4 Date: 2017
Scholars debate whether the metathesis of the Law in Hebrews 7,12 means change of the Law, its transformation, or the full abrogation of the Law. In this article I analyze Hebrews’ direct and indirect approach to the Law in order to ascertain what this change of the Law concerns: what has been changed and what has not been changed? I propose that the positive approach to the Law in general and the fact that the critique of the Law concerns only the cultic laws may indicate that the author favors the observation of the non-cultic laws.
