Lukan Authorship of Hebrews (NAC Studies) / January 01, 2010
Requires Accordance 10.4 or above.
The authorial origins of the book of Hebrews has been a subject of much debate in the church since before the canon was finalized in the 4th Century. The list of possible suspects for authorship include Paul, Clement of Rome, Barnabas, Apollos, Luke, Silas, Peter, Priscilla and Aquila (together), Aristion, Philip, Jude, Epaphras, John the Apostle, Timothy, and Mary, Mother of Jesus (assisted by Luke and John).
Proponents of the Lukan theory however, may be on the right track. There is much circumstantial evidence to support this theory, and in light of new ideas of Luke’s ethnicity and advanced computer technology allowing us to more accurately track word usage, semantical choices, and other grammatical features the theory is receiving new life. In The Lukan Authorship of Hebrews David Allen presents the case for Lukan authorship in conjunction with the historical evidence and the new and fresh data that has emerged in recent years.
Providing a historical overview, and then proceeding into discussion regarding grammar, theology, as well as what he believes are mistakes about Luke’s ethnic identity, Allen makes a compelling case that Hebrews is the original and independent work of Luke the physician and author of the third Gospel, and the book of Acts.
While fairly specialized, though not necessarily technical, this book will make an excellent read for students who need to learn how to grapple with evidence. It is obviously required reading for serious NT scholars.
