@Kazark - FYI I re-worked my answer quite a bit on this.

@JonEricson - Actually you nudged me to make a revision that has been nagging me for some time to do. This pretty much wipes away my previous post.

comment Are there intra-textual supports for a politicized reading of Revelation?
@JonEricson - Don't know if you got around to reading this but if you have thought you might like to know a large expanded and very well argued version in four volumes is here. I am reading this and am dumbfounded on how good some of the arguments are. But you have to start atnthe beggining and let him hook you in first, then he overwhelmes with unexpected additional proofs that just get plain incredible. I wish somebody tipped me on to this a long time ago: archive.org/details/horaeapocalypt01elli

comment Does the “fear of death” in Hebrews 2:15 refer to the dread of physically dying, or to something else?
@Joseph - yes. This fear is 'one' of the aspects of their slavery that Christ frees us from. It is one of those bondages that the Devil personally uses to torment those who are subject to his malicious rule.

@Joseph - the Greek word fear is like the English one. It is an excited emotion when encountering a powerful force. It originated from the idea 'to flee' it easily extends to panic, or when facing God who is powerful yet loving, reverence. It does not mean subject under.

comment Does the “fear of death” in Hebrews 2:15 refer to the dread of physically dying, or to something else?
@Joseph - Subjection does not change the meaning for me as that is already understood. Sinners are subject to death and subject to the fear of physical death because it is the entrance into the 'final subjection' of the second death. Same difference to me?

comment Does the “fear of death” in Hebrews 2:15 refer to the dread of physically dying, or to something else?
@Joseph - I do not think this fear is anything like a holy reverent fear which makes us willingly subject to God - that is liberating fear. This is fear over physically dying (due to the final judgment) and is a tormenting fear of bondage. The two fears are almost opposites. Deliverance versus bondage. Fear of Christ delivers sinners from fear of death. One fear is replaced by a different kind of fear.

comment What are the limits to the Christological hermeneutic?
I agree the hermeneutic certainly applies in this broader sense.
