Pitts on Lukan Authorship of Hebrews
Michael Bird has a nice interview with Andrew W. Pitts who is a coauthor of a forthcoming with Joshua F. Walker entitled "The Authorship of Hebrews: A Further Development in the Luke-Paul Relationship" which will be included in forthcoming in book Paul's Social Relations, ed. Stanley Porter (Leiden: Brill, 2010). According to Pitts, "The evidence we examine suggests that Hebrews likely represents a Pauline speech, probably originally delivered in a Diaspora synagogue, that Luke documented in some way during their travels together and which Luke later published as an independent speech to be circulated among house churches in the Jewish-Christian Diaspora."
