The author of Hebrews neither names himself nor clearly designates his audience. The traditional title “to the Hebrews” reflects the ancient assumption that the original recipients were Jewish Christians. The author’s identity has been a matter of significant conjecture throughout church history. In antiquity, authorship was attributed to figures such as Barnabas or especially Paul. However, several of the most astute church fathers recognized considerable differences in style and method of argument between this book and Paul’s named writings. Scholars have suggested other possible authors, such as Clement, Luke, or Apollos. However, most today concede that this author remains anonymous.
The soteriology (salvation teaching) of Hebrews is rooted in its Christology—the Son of God became the heavenly high priest, who offered himself as a sacrifice once for all. Christ obtained salvation for all who approach in faith, and such faith perseveres until it receives the promised eternal reward.
Hebrews is one of the most difficult of all New Testament books to teach from as its subject matter is so deep, that it requires a firm grasp of the entire New Testament Gospel message in order even begin to absorb the deep spiritual concepts laid out in this important epistle.

The author of Hebrews calls out the church and those in it who have become apostate and have fallen away from a deep and meaningful relationship with God. He then encourages the body to move away from the milk toast teaching of the basics of scripture and move forward into the deeper things of God.
Once saved always saved? - Is that what scripture really teaches?
Do you not have free will? - The right to choose God or otherwise?
You cannot lose your salvation.... but what does that look like?
