Title: Τῶν λαληθησομένων in Hebrews 3,5
Author(s): SWETNAM, James
Volume: 90 Issue: 1 Date: 2009
The words Τῶν λαληθησομένων in Heb 3,5 allude to the words of Christ at the institution of the Eucharist. This is argued from 1) the contrast between Christ and Moses in Heb 3,1-6 as understood against the background of Num 12,7[LXX]; 2) the thematic use of λαλέω in Hebrews; 3) the relevance of Heb 9,20; 4) the place of Heb 3,5 in the structure of Heb 1,1-3,6. All to be understood against a Eucharistic interpretation of Heb 2,12 and Heb 13.
