“The Epistle to the Hebrews” . . . .

Please note: Warren Camp hasn't yet written or completed the commentary that you requested. Our Bible-study group is currently studying passages from previous summary pages shown above.

While we wait for Warren to complete writing his commentary on the next passage, it might interest you that the author of the letter to the Hebrews will remain a mystery. Several theories regarding the author’s identity have been proposed over the centuries, but all of them carry significant obstacles. Most of the churches in the eastern part of the Roman Empire believed that Apostle Paul was the author of this letter. But, missing in it are Paul’s usual "greeting and salutation" and polished rhetorical style, which we find customarily throughout his letters. Some suggest that Luke authored it, while others propose that it might have been written by Apollos, Barnabas, Silas, Philip, Clement of Rome, or Aquila and Priscilla.

The writer warned the Jewish-Christian readers of his letter about the peril of committing apostasy — that is, renouncing their Christian faith and returning to Judaism. With its myriad references to Hebraic customs and the Old Testament, "Hebrews" was likely directed to a mixture of saved and unsaved Jewish Christians.

Kindly check back a little later. Thank you.
