I don’t really believe Dave is heretical. I’m just quoting what he says of himself, and who is soon to give his guest lecture on why he believes Paul is is the author of Hebrews.
When I gave this talk over a decade ago at Regent’s Park College in Oxford (pictured), I was received with official courtesies and warm applause — at least on the part of the students, who had quite possibly never heard such heretical views before.
In the past I have swung between the belief that either Paul or Luke wrote Hebrews. But now I believe it was actually Silas who wrote Hebrews.
But while we can debate who wrote what and joke around – we also pray that your lecture goes well and that you are well received by students and staff.
