Chapter Summary

Paul in Rom 3:25 and the author of Hebrews in Heb 9:12 each performed a single-level assertive called a metaphorical assertion. Paul asserted that Jesus Christ, with his own blood, has made justification, eternal redemption, forgiveness of sins, communal participation, and Christian unity possible. The author of Hebrews asserted that Jesus Christ took on human blood and flesh to destroy death and the devil. Both writers had a particular set of pre-intentional or non-representational backgrounds. And as each had a network of intentional states directed formerly at God as Yahweh, then God as Jesus Christ, their metaphorical assertions would have challenged and reinforced this new belief system for their assessors. To Searle's credit, his categories offer a way to rethink what NT writers like Paul and the author of Hebrews meant—literally and metaphorically—when writing about Christ's blood.
