Description

Excerpt from The Pulpit Commentary While internal evidence, as above noticed, seems to preclude any date later than an. 70, so does it, on the other hand, any very much earlier. For the readers are addressed as members of a Church of old standing: they are reminded of the former days, when they had been at first illuni na and of persecution endured in the past; suficient time had elapsed for them to show serious signs of wavering from their early steadfastness and their leaders, who had spoken to them the Word of God, had already passed away, being referred to in terms that suggest the idea of martyrdom (ch. Xiii. If we could be sure of an allusion here, among others. To James the Just (called Bishop of Jerusalem, ' and the acknowledged leader of the Hebrew Christians), we should have a definite terminus a quo in an. 62, at the Passover of which year, according to Josephus and Eusebius, James was martyred. This allusion cannot, however, be more than a probability. All we can allege confidently is that the Epistle, from its contents, must have been written a considerable number of years after the community addressed had received the faith, and hence, if during St. Paul's life, not long before its close. Some time between a.d. 62 and 70 would very well suit the conditions. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
