Who wrote Hebrews? We do not know! And I won’t try to convince you of one particular author. But, there are some things for us to learn and to be aware of as we consider this question. And I do look forward to meeting the author one day. In heaven! What a passionate encourager he was. He communicated with eloquent use of the Greek language. He gave, as Oswald Chambers put it, “my utmost for His highest.” The author’s best effort was made to exhort fellow believers to fix their eyes on Jesus and to know Him as their perfect, eternal High Priest.
That is the most important thing we can know about the author of Hebrews. He made sure that our attention would be on Jesus. God picked the right man to write this book, didn’t He?!?
No matter who wrote this letter to the Hebrews…. he knew this certain truth:
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
