Authorship of Hebrews: Reviewing Cortez’s Case—Part 3

Recently, Félix Cortez published an article on the Spectrum website arguing that Paul the apostle was the author of the Letter to the Hebrews in the New Testament.

And no percussion instruments - they are not approved by the bible ! And no dancing, no rhythms, they in OT times were not dancing, but “Jumping” !
