This study attempts to analyse the text of Hebrews with a method of discourse analysis primarily based on a form of systemic functional linguistics developed for Hellenistic Greek, but it is also informed by other linguistic studies. It begins with a general survey of the literature that is either influential or representative of approaches to the structure of Hebrews. The survey is followed by an introduction to the terminology and definitions of discourse analysis, as well as the theory behind the methodology, and describes a procedure for analysing text.

"Westfall is to be congratulated on a remarkable fusion of the inights of current linguistic theory with a detailed, down-to-earth reading of the Greek text of Hebrews, producing what is in effect a special type of commentary."
