For no particular reason, I'm feeling petulant about repeating the phrase "the author of Hebrews" or even "the author." I've decided to give said author a name and gender. Meet Herb.
This is what happens when my little brother and I chat aimlessly about things as diverse as musicals we did in high school, Anglican/Episcopal polity and US law, and finance tests. I think of silly things, like naming the author of Hebrews after a character my brother played in Godspell that happens to share letters with the name of the book.
