15. The Historical Reliability of the Gospels: Conclusion

We come at last to the end of the series. Part Fifteen here, summarizing the previous fourteen articles, can serve as a guide for which article the reader may need in the future. The series has always been about having confidence in the four Gospels so the gospel of the kingdom can go forth.

Let’s get started, with the usual Question and Answer format, for clarity and conciseness.

Friendly greetings!

  1. Dear Brother James,

    I want to thank you for the tremendous effort you have put in in coming up with the 15 articles in this series. It has been a great blessing to me! If it’s not too much of a trouble, could you consider writing an article/a series of articles about the authorship of the book of Hebrews? This is something I have struggled with and it would be great if you could shed some light on it.

    Thank you and God bless!

    Your brother in Christ,
    Joshua Wu

    • Thanks for your supportive words. As to Hebrews, it is confusing, but anonymity is not faith destroying. The three main candidates are Paul the apostle, Apollos, and Barnabas. Barnabas was a Levite, so he was familiar with the sacrificial system, and he heard Paul preach. Apollos was a brilliant student of the Old Testament and brilliant speaker, which usually means an equally brilliant writer, which the epistle reflects. Paul is as good as a candidate the other two, but it’s unusual for him not to close an epistle without saying his name or introduce himself at the beginning of his epistles. My hunch (only a hunch) goes toward Barnabas. But no one knows for sure, so I won’t post anything on it in the near future and probably not in the distant future. But bless you, Joshua! Thanks again for the feedback!
