Evrei 13, 10-14 – o cuvântare retorică ce militează pentru separația creștinismului de iudaism?
Modern biblical research has claimed that the entire text in Hebrews 13 could be considered a pseudoepigraphy, a foreign text fragment added later on by scribes to the rest of the epistle, in order to give the impression of Saint Paul’s authority and authenticity, like a more precise post-scriptum. For this very reason, some scholars believed that Hebrews 13 was not part of the original corpus of the epistle to the Hebrews from the very beginning. A more balanced perspective is offered by father Ioan Mihoc, who suggests that the entire epistle has only one canonical author, the issue of chapter 13 being explained thorough the hypothesis of a re-reading or reapplication of chapters 1-12. Beyond historical-critical aspects, Hebrews 13 is a sample of deliberative rhetoric that exhorts the urgent separation of the Christian worship from the requirements of the Jewish religion. I will study the issue from a biblic-rhetorical methodology, which contributes to the originality of this research.
