PALI, K.J. Christ as once for all sacrifice: a cultural reading of Hebrews. Acta theol. [online]. 2014, vol.34, n.1, pp.145-172. ISSN 2309-9089.

Furthermore, scholars argue as to whether this practice of sacrifices to the ancestors is Biblical or not. This article aims to determine that, from Hebrews, the demise of Old Testament sacrifices brings an end to ancestral sacrifice.
