The Bible book of Hebrews was written by Paul, in Rome and was finally completed c. 61 C.E. Paul is always known as the the apostle “to the nations.” But was his ministry confined to the non-Jews? Not at all! Just before Paul was baptized and commissioned for his work, Lord Jesus said to Ananias: “This man (Paul) is a chosen vessel to me to bear my name to the nations as well as to kings and sons of Israel.”The writing of the books of Hebrews was truly in line with Paul’s commission to bear the name of Jesus to sons to the of Israel.
However, some critics doubt Paul’s writer ship of Hebrews. On objection was that Paul’s name does not appear in the letter. But this is not an obstacle, as many other canonical books fails to name the writer, who is normally identified by an internal evidence. Moreover,some feel that Paul may have deliberately omitted his name in writing to the Hebrew Christians in Judea, since his name had been made an object of hatred by the Jews there.(Acts 21:28)
Neither is the change of style from this epistles any real objection to Paul’s writer-ship of Hebrews. One objection is that Paul’s name does not appear in the letter. Whether addressing pagans, Jews,or Christian, Paul always showed his ability to “To become to people of all sorts.” Here his reasoning is presented to the Jews as a Jew, arguments that they could fully understand and appreciate.- 1 Cor. 9:22.
The internal evidence of the book is all in support of Paul’s writer-ship. The writer was in Italy and was associated with Timothy. These facts fit Paul. ( Heb. 13;23, 24). Furthermore, the doctrine is typical of Paul, though the arguments are presented from a Jewish viewpoint, designed to appeal to strictly Hebrew congregation to which the letter was addressed.On this viewpoint Clarke’s Commentary, Volume 6, page 681, says concerning Hebrews: “That it was written to Jews, naturally such, the whole structure of the epistle proves.
Had it been written to the Gentiles, not one in ten thousand of them could have comprehended the argument. This helps to account for the difference of styles when compared with the apostle Paul other writings.
