This week Douglas Wilson talks about the Pauline authorship of Hebrews. He then goes on to review “Job, The Victim of His People”, a book by René Girard. Wrapping it up with a look at the New Testament word “Anastauroo.” Happy plodding!

Show notes:

Pauline Authorship of Hebrews

  • The argument against: “The letter just doesn’t sound like him.”
  • There are ways the style could be different and make sense
  • 2 Pet. 3:15-16 “As Paul wrote to you”

Job, The Victim of His People

  • Book by René Girard
  • Warning: Although a very insightful writer, Girard is not a Biblical infallibilist
  • Ruin for Job meant economic distress for everyone around
  • Job doesn’t do what a pagan King would do
  • This outlook on accusation is very refreshing


  • “Anastauroo” means “to recrucify”
  • Heb. 6:6
