For this month's carnival two themes have emerged. First, I will introduce two blogs of fellow Baylor colleagues who had brief posts on Hebrews:
Scott Rushing, a Ph.D. candidate in theology with a specialization in Patristics, has a lectionary reflection on Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16.
Keith Reich, with his newly-minted Ph.D. in New Testament, has a newly-minted blog on the Rhetoric and the NT. He identifies the rhetorical figures in Hebrews 1:1-4.
The other major theme that emerged this month is the issue of authorship of Hebrews:
Derek Ouellette has an Interview with Ruth Hoppin, Author of Priscilla's Letter. Ruth Hoppin also has a guest post on Hebrews 11:32, the controversial passage often used to dismiss the possibility of a female author for the book. You can read my critique of her argument and our subsequent exchange there.
Derek Ouellette also has a review of David L. Allen's book, Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.
Christianbook.com is doing a Read In for Allen's new book:
Part 1: the Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.
Part 2: Whose [sic] Your Author?.
Part 2 Supplemental.
Linguistics and the Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.
Part 2: Linguistics and the Lukan Authorship of Hebrews.

Allen's "Independent" Hypothesis and Lukan Methodology.
Michael Bird considers some Central Themes in Hebrews.
Steven Coxhead proposes that the Perfecting of Jesus as High Priest took place upon the cross.
Alan Knox has a brief post on the translation of Hebrews 10:24.
Dave Spotts has posted a couple of sermons on Hebrews 11:1-16 and Hebrews 13:1-17.
