Entry 7: Gospel in Biblical Theology (whole-bible theology)

M. Bird:  “The author of Hebrews detects in Jesus the culmination and fulfillment of Israel’s covenants, law, priesthood, and sacrifices. From a rhetorical point of view this indicates that the Christian message of salvation has a degree of antiquity as it is prefigured in the sacred writings of the Jewish people, and the gospel is also authoritative since those Scriptures were regarded as being inspired by God.”
