Introduction to Penteteuch

Genesis
GenesisSteve Gregg

In "Introduction to Pentateuch," Steve Gregg presents various arguments for and against Mosaic authorship -the belief that Moses wrote the first five books of the Old Testament. While the documentary hypothesis suggests that the Pentateuch was written by multiple authors from different Jewish traditions, Jewish tradition, Jesus' own claims, apostolic writings, and internal evidence within the books themselves all suggest that Moses wrote the Pentateuch. The contents and themes of each book focus on the sovereignty, power, grace, holiness, and faithfulness of God, and while some aspects may not have been relevant to later Jews, the Pentateuch remains a crucial part of the Old Testament.
