Who Wrote the Book of Hebrews?
There is a question that has long plagued scholars concerning the book of Hebrews: who was its author? In determining an answer the methodology usually boils down to comparing the book to other known works or analyzing the internal evidence. Based on these observations “The idea of Pauline authorship of Hebrews is now almost universally abandoned.”
Obviously, if the idea of Pauline authorship has been abandoned then the logical following question: who did write the book? “In antiquity, the names of Paul, Barnabas, Luke, and Clement of Rome were mentioned in certain church centers as the author of Hebrews. In current scholarship, Apollos, Silvanus, the deacon Philip, Priscilla and Aquila, Jude, Aristion.”
These observations concerning the book of Hebrews are built on solid textual, linguistic, conceptual, and grammatical conclusions after extensively studying the book using a variety of methodological means.
However, they are wrong. They are built on faulty ideas about logic and errant human’s ability to correctly perceive elements concerning God’s Word without the aid of His Spirit and arrogantly relying on mere human reason.
Paul and Abraham really wrote the book of Hebrews. How do we know this? Because Todd Bentley traveled to the third heaven where Paul himself told him so. Yes, this is unprovable, but Todd said so, therefore, it must be true. Unless you are a materialist or post-Christian and have no faith whatsoever.
From Todd’s own site an article titled Face to Face in which he goes to heaven, meets Jesus and Paul, and Paul reveals the truth.
I was taken right into the midst of the paradise of God. Jesus came in the form of the son of man. He had on an ephod that was the color of the earth, a tan or brown. He had a golden sash and sandals and curly hair that hung to His shoulders. He also wore a purple or blue robe. I looked right into His eyes. They were so brown like those of a deer. I felt like I could go right into His eyes. They were like doves’ eyes, or milky almonds. He had a short beard.
I could see into heaven at a distance that seemed twenty or thirty miles. I saw the tree of life at a distance. I wanted to go there and eat from it. As quickly as I had the thought, I was there. Communication in heaven takes place by thought. Everything is open and transparent, nothing is hidden.
I saw a bridge and a small flowing river. I wanted to be on the bridge and as soon as I had the thought, I was there. Nothing dies in heaven. When I stepped on grass, it would spring right back up. Everything is full of life. The grass seemed so full of life that when I looked at it, I thought it was going to speak to me. I was sitting on the bridge when Paul appeared. He was a small man and he sat down next to me. He was holding a blank scroll and a pen, something like a quill. As he would write he said “Eat this.” I began to eat, but realized I wasn’t eating through my mouth but by my belly. At a distance I could see Abraham and David.
Paul took me to his house, which was a cabin. Wall to wall was books, scrolls, diaries. I saw every book of the Bible and also Paul’s journals. He said, “Not everything is in the Bible, Todd.” All of my revelation is based on the Bible. He didn’t give me anything new. He took the book of Titus and said, “You need to eat this.” He stuffed the scroll down my throat. I said, “Why do I need to eat this?” He said, “Because it is my apostolic son in the faith. I want you to get an impartation of what it really means to be an apostle, to have sons and daughters, what it really means to be a son.” And we spoke more about the apostolic that is coming.
We were in a room which was round in shape. I asked, “What happens in this room?” It didn’t seem large enough to fit more than twelve people. He said, “This is a room where I teach people who died prematurely and are in heaven today.” He then took down another scroll which was 1 Corinthians chapter 2. He said, “Eat this.” I said, “Why do you want me to eat this?” He said, “Because this is what I am breathing on in this hour.” And he spoke more to me about a supernatural faith, Gospel and experience.
He gave me one last book, which was Hebrews. I ate the book and then he told me who authored it. He explained that he in fact wrote the book but left it unclear because some of its content was given to him by supernatural visitation from Abraham.
So there you have it. Throw away your human commentaries relying on ‘learning’ and ‘logic’, and rely on the wonderful unseen revelation of the true truth: Paul and Abraham wrote Hebrews!
In addition, 2 Tim 3:16 tells us “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching,” but now we know that not only is Scripture “God-breathed” according to Bentley it is now “Paul-breathed.” So instead of theopneustos (God-breathed) we now have, um, paulpneustos? I guess so. Paul told Bentley himself, and because there is simply no way that we could demonstrate that this didn’t happen, therefore, it must be true!
