A cursory look at Hebrews' critique of Israel's worry at Sinai in Heb 12:18-29 means that the writer has misunderstood or manipulated his assets. within the Pentateuch, the appointment of Moses as Israel's mediator gets specific approval (Exod 19:9; Deut 5:28), whereas Heb 12:25 labels their request for mediation a "refusal" to heed the note of God. This book argues that Hebrews' use of the Sinai narratives is living on a fancy trajectory confirmed via 4 issues: the Sinai covenant in response to Exodus, the reenactment of that covenant in response to Deuteronomy, the decision for a brand new covenant in line with Jeremiah, and the current fact of that covenant validated via God and mediated through Jesus Christ.
