Who Wrote The Book Of Hebrews?

Updated on May 14, 2017


I have always been fascinated by the Book of Hebrews in the New Testament. I recently asked the community here who they thought was the author of the Book of Hebrews and I felt encouraged to write an article on the subject because of the interest of fellow writers.

Some other names for the Book of Hebrews are Letter to the Hebrews and the Epistle to the Hebrews. The Book of Hebrews is one of my favorites book of the bible because to me it seems very unique. The Book of Hebrew's author has been debated throughout history and remains an enigma, even today. Many people have attributed the book to the Apostle Paul. Others have been put forth as the author of the Book of Hebrews such as Barnabas, Apollos and Priscilla, as well as others.

I am not an expert on the Bible, but I have read and studied it as a layman for many years. I lack the expertise to even speculate on who possibly wrote the Book of Hebrews. I did want to write an article about how I believe the book is an extraordinary work, in so many ways. It is extraordinary to me personally, as I consider it a masterpiece of biblical literature and literature in general.

I cannot speak as an expert, but I did want to convey my personal opinions of the Book of Hebrews, as well as the author, whoever that should be. I was also hoping for possible commentary in the comment section below. Perhaps someone that is more knowledgeable can give more insight. Or perhaps, others can give opinions or ideas on who they think authored the Book of Hebrews, whether they are an expert or not and possibly we can come to a consensus.

I thought it would be helpful if the personality traits of the writer was explored and discussed. I want to investigate the author's personality and get to know them as much as possible. If other people would like to express their perspective of the personality that authored or possibly even coauthored or collaborated, in the writing of the Book of Hebrews, I think it might help in getting a clearer picture of that personality, based upon different views of the same person. With that information, or varied views, that personality could be compared to other books, verses or writings and it could become possible, to come closer to finding the true author.

In my opinion, the writer of the Book of Hebrews, writes with assertive, almost commanding confidence. They seem to know scripture, backwards and forwards. They seem to know scripture so well, that they can pick verses throughout the Bible and put them together, in a linear and coherent fashion, with such a remarkably eloquent result.

Who wrote the Book of Hebrews? What are the personality traits of the author of the Book of Hebrews? What does the Book of Hebrews mean to you? What lesson or message in the Book of Hebrews is the most significant or what stands out the most? Do you think the Book of Hebrews is unique in any way?
