The present study treats of the Epistle to the Hebrews almost purely from the point of view of external form and is preliminary to a more general study of the whole subject of style and language in the New Testament. If it presents many matters of detail that are more or less tedious and call for patience one must bear in mind that it is only by the examination of details that one may come to a reasonably safe conclusion about principles. Even a cursory study of the works of literary critics will demonstrate the necessity of the warning that the general impression of an author which one gets after a comparatively long study of him may not be a true one. That impression may be colored by past experience or by prejudice, in other words, may represent a purely personal idea of excellence. In fact, the literary critic and, in particular, the student of Greek, must continually guard against seeing in an author only what he wishes to see and making his work only the instrument for demonstrating the truth of a prejudice.
