Released Saturday, 3rd September 2016
Good episode? Give it some love!
Theologically speaking, the Book of Hebrews is one of the most important books of the entire Bible. It eloquently defines Jesus Christ as our High Priest, supreme over all of creation, and highlights Jesus as the fulfillment of the Old Testament Law and Prophets. But both the authorship and audience of this letter are in question.

Church tradition had long embraced the Apostle Paul as the author of this letter, but the consensus among most scholars today is that we simply do not know precisely which early church leader wrote the Book of Hebrews.

However, scholars today are certain that Hebrews was written by someone who was well educated and intimately acquainted with the Jewish Scriptures. We also know that it certainly written by an apostle or someone directly mentored by an apostle, which is why it was allowed into the Canon, but by which apostle, we're not 100% sure.

In this episode, Kenny dives into all of the authorship questions around Hebrews. Kenny dives into the evidence for and against Paul as the author of Hebrews as well as giving us evidences for other potential writers such as Luke, Barnabas, Apollos, Priscilla, and Clement of Rome.
