The Pauline personality of the postscript is principally complicated for implying Paul's authorship of the book-a thesis that's all yet distributed with at the present time. Clare ok. Rothschild argues that if Hebrews's postscript is either unique and imitative of Paul's letters, and if such imitation at the a part of the writer of Hebrews intentionally identifies the writer as Paul, the full ebook of Hebrews advantages attention as a pseudepigraphon.
interpreting Hebrews from this angle, Rothschild makes the case that neither the postscript nor the remainder of Hebrews used to be composed de novo . fairly, it intentionally adopts phrases and phrases-including citations from the Jewish scriptures-from a suite of Pauline fabrics, with a purpose to indicate Paul's authorship of a message that stands in continuity with esteemed Pauline traditions. additionally, the longstanding culture of Hebrews's Pauline attribution means that it by no means circulated independently of alternative works attributed to Paul yet used to be composed to enlarge an early corpus Paulinum . this is often the 1st ever monograph to ascertain the historical past of Hebrews' Pauline attribution and the importance of this attribution for our knowing of the publication and its author's indebtedness to Pauline traditions.
