Confirms the Letter to the Hebrews traditional notions of Jewish identity, he articulates a novel view of the Christian identity or taking any of these two options to? Ole Jakob Filtvedt comes from the subject of the "people of God" from the Hebrews and maintains that the answer to the paradoxical tension between novelty and continuity in the Letter to the Hebrews must be linked. Previous attempts to read the book of Hebrews from the model of the supersession be criticized, but also more recent interpretations that see the Letter to the Hebrews as a confirmation of a "radically new perspective" on the Christian origins.
