1. Hebrews 2:6 (ESV)

Why are the author and location absent?

Hebrews 2:6 (ESV)

6 It has been testified somewhere, “What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the son of man, that you care for him?

The seemingly careless handling of the author and the location is striking: someone testifies somewhere. The point is the testimony of God in Scripture. Who the speaker is, who is used by God as a mouthpiece, and where he has said it are of minor importance.1
