Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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...

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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).

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Allen gives a thorough study of the various views concerning the authorship of Hebrews. He is fair in his presentation of each one. He builds a methodical, logical and believable case for Dr Luke's authorship of the book. His strongest arguments revolve around linguistic and vocabulary similarities between Hebrews and Luke/Acts. Dr. Allen's arguments are very convincing. One should not be surprised to hear Dr. Luke say in heaven, "Yes, Dr Allen was spot on. I wrote it under the guidance of the Holy Spirit." In the process of reading Dr. Allen's work the reader will gain helpful insights into the theme, presentation and purpose of Hebrews. It is a good primer for Dr. Allen's just-published commentary on Hebrews.

This book is a must for the serious Bible student or theologian to read to see all of the strong evidence that Luke can be considered a strong candidate for if not the most likely potential author of Hebrews. A terrific read and it helped me greatly in writing a paper on the authorship of Hebrews for Bible College.....I highly recommend it!
