I've previously mentioned that I have an ascii file of the original NIV,
from which I copy and paste into my sermon presentations. As I prefer to
capitalise pronouns referring to God, I have for long just done so in
the verses I copy, but last year I decided to do the thing properly and
go through the entire Bible and change the capitalisations. I've taken
my time over it, but I am now up to Hebrews.

As you would expect, there are lots of words that need changing, things
like "The Lord roars from heaven, He thunders from Jerusalem" or "Lord,
You are greatly to be praised" and so on. With the exception of the
historical books, most Old Testament verses needed one or two
alterations per verse.

The same was true of the Gospels and even Acts had quite a few divine
pronouns - and then I hit Paul's writings. It wasn't quite whole
chapters, but certainly whole paragraphs went by without a single change
being needed.

But now, in Hebrews, I'm back to the one or two (or more) per verse.
Does that tell us anything about the authorship of the book?

God bless,
Kendall K Down
