Distinctive in form, content and style, the epistle to the Hebrews offers a profound high Christology and makes an awe-inspiring contribution to our understanding of Jesus as our High Priest. The earliest extant commentary on the letter comes to us in thirty-four homilies from John Chrysostom. These homilies serve to anchor the excerpts chosen by the editors of this volume because of their unique place in the history of interpretation. In addition to being the first comprehensive commentary on the letter, they deeply influenced subsequent interpretation in both the East and the West, and their rhetorical eloquence has long been acknowledged.As in other Ancient Christian Commentary volumes, the excerpts chosen range widely over geography and time from Justin Martyr and Clement of Rome in the late first and early second century to The Venerable Bede, Isaac of Nineveh, Photius and John of Damascus in the eighth and ninth centuries. The Alexandrian tradition is well represented in Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Athanasius, Didymus and Cyril of Alexandria, while the Antiochene tradition is represented in Ephrem the Syrian, Theodore of Mopsuestia, Severian of Gabala and Theodoret of Cyr. Italy and North Africa in the West are represented by Ambrose, Cassiodorus and Augustine, while Constantinople, Asia Minor and Jerusalem in the East are represented by the Great Cappadocians--Basil the Great, Gregory of Nazianzus and Gregory of Nyssa--Eusebius, Cyril of Jerusalem and Jerome.Edited by Erik M. Heen and Philip D. W. Krey, this volume offers a rich treasure of ancient wisdom from Hebrews for the enrichment of the church today.

Erik M. Heen (Ph.D., Columbia University) is professor of New Testament and Greek at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is the author of Anton Fridrichsen (1888-1953): An Introduction and an Author Bibliography and many articles published in Semeia, The Review of Biblical Literature, Teaching Theology and Religion, Currents, Dialog, The Philadelphia Inquirer and others.

Philip D. W. Krey (Ph.D., University of Chicago) is president and professor of early and medieval church history at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (Pennsylvania). Some of the books he has published are Nicholas of Lyre: The Senses of Scripture which he co-edited with Lesley Smith; Nicholas of Lyra's Apocalypse Commentary (1329) in the Literal Postil; and For All the Saints: A Short History of the Church. He has published many articles which have appeared in books and journals published by Eerdmans, the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Garland Press, Lutheran Partners and others.
