Chapter Summary

At least five distinct approaches have been utilized for investigations into the structure of Hebrews. Analysis of patterns of argumentation, found in rhetorical criticism, may be subsumed under "constituent analysis" in text linguistics. Text-linguistic theory is based on an assumption that written texts begin with the author's conception of the theme which he wants to communicate. Just as cola are grouped to form paragraphs, paragraphs may be grouped to form "embedded discourses", which in turn may be grouped to form larger embedded discourses within the main, or "macro-", discourse. Connectives, surface structure expressions which demonstrate some relation between propositions in a discourse, are one means of connection. This chapter presents an examination of the special form lexical cohesion takes in the author's transition techniques.

Keywords: cola; Hebrews; Text-linguistic theory; transition techniques
