*Note on The Authorship of Hebrews
Even though the Letter to the Hebrews has traditionally been attributed to the apostle Paul since as early as 400 AD, there has never been unanimity about its authorship. Other candidates include Barnabas (first suggested by Tertullian (c160-c220)), and Apollos (first suggested by Martin Luther (1483-1546)), Aquila, Silas, Philip and Clement of Rome. Origen (c185-c254) summed-up the issue of the authorship of Hebrews when he said, "Who wrote the epistle in truth God alone knows."
