dc.description.abstractThe book of Hebrews is saturated with the language of sacrifice especially chapters 9 and 10. It goes on to compare sacrifices of the old covenant and that of the new covenant, appealing that the new one is the better one to be accepted by the community. In this research I do not only look at it as a book but a homily to the Hebrews. This is informed by the way it was written. As the title stipulates, the phrase, “Sound of Sacrifice” is meant to appeal to the orality of the homily to the Hebrews in that the book seems to favour an extensive use of the verbs; “hear and listen” throughout. With “Hearing the homily to the Hebrews with Zulu ears”, I am putting both cultures Hebrew and Zulu into dialogue. I am exploring the new interpretation of the text of finding similarities between Hebrew and Zulu culture in the text and appealing to the Zulu community to accept the new order which is proposed in the homily, as it addresses the very needs of sacrifice but in the new order.en_US
