In Hebrews the New Covenant concept is the key to the author's hermeneutical scheme. When the New Covenant in Hebrews is compared with the same idea in the Dead Sea Scrolls, in Paul and in the Last Supper accounts, the independence and originality of the author of Hebrews become evident. His cultic reinterpretation of the New Covenant concept allows him to depict the Christ event in continuity with its Levitical heritage, through the shared rubrics of high priest, bloody sacrifice and tent. His simultaneous stress on the new, heavenly character of the New Covenant is designed to convince his readers of its surpassing effectiveness and definitive superiority
