This article explores the ways in which Jesus’ suffering, death and subsequent exaltation are developed by the author of Hebrews. In the introduction attention is briefly paid to the genre, structure, the variety of images and metaphors, as well as the many comparisons employed in Hebrews. Major sections of the article explore how Jesus’ suffering as Son of God is treated, and the once and for all nature of his sacrifice and offering of himself as high priest. Hebrew’s powerful and evocative reflection on the saving significance of the death of Jesus is one in which his humanity, and his Sonship, are held and honoured in a creative and life-giving tension.
