TRANSCRIPT:

Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher

Let’s turn now to the letter to the Hebrews.

Now, if you use a King James Version, you probably see at the top of it: THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE HEBREWS.

Now, this is one of those unusual books in the New Testament where there is no record within the letter or book as to who wrote it and to whom it was written. Paul, whenever he wrote a letter, he always put his name at the beginning and wrote to whom he was writing. So, if that was his habit, then probably Paul did not write this, and probably it’s not Paul’s letter.

The second thing is, we don’t know to whom it was written. And the reason why they gave the title to this book as Hebrews is not because of anything inside the book. I mean, no evidence that it was to the Hebrews. It’s because there are so many references to the Old Testament and to the priesthood of Aaron and Moses and many things like that, and Melchizedek, that it’s assumed that it’s written to someone who is very familiar with the Old Testament and therefore possibly Hebrew Christians, Jewish Christians.

But, as far as we’re concerned, that doesn’t really interest us too much. That’s for those who want to get doctorates in theology who study all that type of stuff. We’re more interested in seeing what God is trying to speak to us. It doesn’t matter who wrote it. The Holy Spirit wrote it. That’s enough for me.

And it doesn’t matter if we don’t know to whom it was written, it was written for me. So, it’s the Holy Spirit’s book to me, as far as I’m concerned. And it’s not very important that we don’t know in that first century to whom it was written.
