Abstract

Our thesis is an exegetical approach to the concept of salvation in Hebrews. It is a contribution to the study of soteriology in this sermon, with regards to the notion of inheritance. Indeed, the author of Hebrews presents salvation as an inheritance of which Christians are beneficiaries (Heb 1.14, 9.15) through the son. The question that guided our research is to know what this « inheritance-salvation » is all about. After a presentation of the research on the notion of soteriology in Hebrews (Part I), we undertook an exegetical study of the Christological images of Christ through which the author reveals the identity and the action of Christ the saviour (Parts II and III). We have selected those of son as heir, firstborn, brother of men and mediator of the covenant-testament. The study of these images allowed us to examine more closely the relation between Christology and soteriology as well as the anthropological, the legal and religious prerequisites necessary for bestowing the inheritance of salvation to Christians. In part four, we took a depth look at the key aspects of this salvation based on the notions of rest and unshakeable kingdom. The exegetical course taken so far showed the inalienable inheritance reserved for the faithful of Christ is the everlasting relationship established with God by the sacrifice of the Son in the heavenly sanctuary.
