Abstract For a long time, there has been a debate in the academic circles regarding of what kind of sanctuary is portrayed and discussed in thee book of Hebrews. Some defend the Hebrews author based his discussion of the theme in the Greek philosophy. Other scholars, however, defend the position that the sanctuary described in Hebrews is interpreted in a more literal and less allegorical manner. This article presents an analysis of the word σκηνή in the pseudepigraphy preserved in Greek. The objective is to find out if the Jewish background supports a Philo-Platonic idea of the sanctuary or more a literal idea. In order to achieve this purpose, the author analyses the word σκηνή in all the Jewish pseudepigrapha preserved in Greek and evaluates if its use is made in a literal manner or in metaphorical/allegorical manner.
