This book, the product of many years of study and research by the current Dean of the School of Theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. David Allen, renews the focus on identifying the author of the New Testament book of Hebrews.

Since the earliest days of Christianity, debate has existed regarding who actually penned the book of Hebrews. While the traditional view is that the Apostle Paul was responsible, some key factors cast serious doubt on his authorship. Allen clearly and thoroughly investigates the key evidence both within and outside the text for Lukan authorship. While not begin completely dismissive of other theories, David Allen presents a very convincing and well-documented argument, and even more convincingly why Paul was not the author.

A must read for any New Testament scholar, regardless of the denominational background.

Dr. Allen makes a convincing case for Luke's authorship of Hebrews, and that Luke was not a gentile but a Jew. I have always felt that Paul's fingerprints are on the Book of Hebrews, but not his DNA. The prose of the book is certainly more like Luke. Could it be a joint composition of Luke and Paul? From his Roman prison, Paul wrote, "Only Luke is with me" (2 Timothy 4:11). Hmmm...

This book provides a very convincing argument that Luke was the author of Hebrews. I was impressed by all the linguistic evidence that is presented in the book. And given that Luke is the author, the case also becomes very strong that Luke was a Jew. It amazes me that so many people came to the conclusion that Luke was a Gentile (based largely on reading too much into the text of Colossians 4).

Who penned the book of Hebrews has long been a source of debate among scholars and layman alike. Was it the Apostle Paul? Was it Apollos? Was Barnabas? Was it Luke? Was it even Priscilla? While Hebrews shares some commonalities with other Pauline books, there is just enough difference between the book of Hebrews and his other writings to cause, at least in the minds of some to question the traditional belief of Pauline authorship. David Allen, in his book Lukan Authorship of Hebrews suggests the author of Hebrews was not Paul but rather it was the work of Luke, that faithful companion of Paul and author of the Gospel of Luke and Acts.

There are likely many who wonder why there is even the need to debate on who the author of Hebrews is given it is in the canon of Scripture and that should settle things. While there is some validity to such a position, understanding who the author is provides some level of insight into particular mannerisms of an author and how they reveal themselves in their works. Such perspectives can provide valuable insight into particular aspects of a work that become clearer when understood in relation to the author’s writing tendencies.

Allen begins his proposition by noting the history of the question on who wrote Hebrews. I was surprised at the chart in this chapter that noted the variety of authorial proposals given by scholars throughout the centuries. Allen also provides a very interesting historical overview of the positions taken by scholars on the authorship of Hebrews. He notes that in the Western Church, “no tradition regarding Pauline authorship apparently existed. Rather, in the late second and early third centuries, Tertullian believed the letter had been written by Barnabas.
