COETSEE, Albert J.. The book of Hebrews and the Reformed view of Scripture: Hebrews echoed in Belgic Confession Articles 2-7. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2020, vol.54, n.2, pp.1-10. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article argues that the view of Scripture found in the book of Hebrews is echoed in Belgic Confession (BC) Articles 2-7. The article endeavours to prove this hypothesis by indicating how Hebrews and BC Article 2-7 overlap. Articles 2-7 of the BC are discussed successively by summarising what each article says, investigating the conviction of the writer of Hebrews concerning the specific topic and comparing the two. The article finds that the view of Scripture found in BC Articles 2-7 can indeed be traced to the book of Hebrews. The article concludes by drawing some implications from this comparison for the (reformed) church today.

Keywords : Hebrews; Belgic Confession; Belgic Confession Articles 2-7; Reformed view of Scripture; Reformed Confessions.
