Presentation Abstract

This paper attempts to delineate the conception of marriage in the context of the theology of Hebrews. This attempt follows three steps: (1) it depicts the conceptual contours of the transition from chapter 12 to chapter 13; (2) it explores the micro-structure of 13:1-6; and (3) it indicates how the notion of marriage in 13:4 is connected with the two previous steps, showing how they inform the idea of marriage in that verse. In short, the notion of marriage in Hebrews is informed by the attitude of worship to God and the acknowledgment of the future divine judgment.
