Jesus is referred to by many different names, but perhaps the most intriguing title for Jesus in the letter is “author.” He is called the “author of … salvation” and the “author … of our faith” (Heb. 2:10; 12:2, NIV). This title has a rich connotation. The Greek word translated as “author” is archēgos. It expresses the idea of a leader, one who goes at the head of a group to open the way for others.
