Abstract: The Greek text at Heb 9,2 has long been recognized as containing vexing problems. The text discusses the outer "tent" (skene) of the desert tabernacle. This is beyond dispute. The difficulty centres on the word Hagia at the end of the verse. l Normally this is taken as a reference to the outer tent as the "Holies". But a closer examination reveals difficulties.2 Part of the problem involves the text itself. But textual uncertainties are part of a larger challenge constituted by the interpretation of Heb 9,2 in its context.
