    "Although a few people today believe Paul wrote Hebrews, such as theologian R.C. Sproul, contemporary scholars generally reject Pauline authorship." Besides, Pauline never would have authored such a text in the 2nd century. It was a sexist time. (:

    Is there an example of Apollos' writings, we could compare to? When you say the Holy Spirit authored the book, you mean the Bible in general or the book of Hebrews specifically?

    I wanted to explore the ideas of other possible writers than what has normally and historically been offered. For instance, does Ecclesiastes sound like Hebrews?

    I would not think the Old Testament Elijah and I don't believe Michael would have. The story of the OT Elijah was not written by him is why I don't believe he would be; no Biblical record of Michael except as an arch angel and they don't write.

    Hebrews makes mention of Timothy in Hebrews 13:23. I like your reasoning and if I thought that Hebrews may have had a coauthor, possibly, Timothy would be someone to consider. I like you are open to the possibility of Timothy. LeaveNostoneunturned

    Knowing who wrote a book can tell us a lot about where and why it was written.

    As for John's Gospel he clearly identifies himself as the Apostle John (John 21 verse 24 and the last supper discourse)
