ABSTRACT
This article discusses varying interpretations of the terms "faith in Christ" or "faithfulness of Christ" in the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews. The author outlines the scholarly debate as to whether traditional renderings of the Greek term for "faith in Christ" ought to be reinterpreted as the "faithfulness of Christ." The author argues for the latter, focusing on Hebrews 13:22.
