By examining the implicit sociological data in the Epistle to the Hebrews, and locating the implicit society within the context of the larger Graeco-Roman world, Johnson concludes that the author of Hebrews advocates an ideal society that is both more open to outsiders and more willing to assimilate fully new members than was 1st-century hellenistic Judaism. According to the group/grid paradigm developed by Mary Douglas, the implied society can be categorized as "weak" group/"weak" grid, in contrast to "strong" group/"strong" grid Hellenistic Judaism. The critique of the levitical system can thus been seen as supporting the author's advocacy of that implied open society.
