"The Rhetoric of Response" is an interpretation of Hebrews from the perspective of classical rhetorical compositional theory. It argues that this unit in Hebrews is deliberative rhetoric advancing a set of four responses to a significant problem facing the community to who Hebrews is addressed, a group of late first century CE Roman Christians. The responses - which ultimately aim to inspire members to continue in the faith of the community and to accept and weather sufferings occasioned by their faith - are accommodated by the following rhetorical structure, which conforms to the standard classical forensic/deliberative speech outline: Exordium (10:32-34); Confirmation (11:1-40); and Conclusion (12:1-13).
Lee Maxey is Pastor of the Corinthian Baptist Church, Iowa, USA.
