The composition of the Torah (or Pentateuch, the first five books of the bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) was a process that involved multiple authors over an extended period of time. While Jewish tradition holds that all five books were originally written by Moses sometime in the 2nd millennium BCE, by the 17th century leading scholars had rejected Mosaic authorship. Having mentioned this brief caveat, let us turn our attention to the words in Jos , which refer to the Mosaic authorship of not just one small section, but rather of the entire "book of the law", which I take to refer to at least Exodus through Deuteronomy, if not Genesis as well.
Explicit references to Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch can be found throughout the Old Testament (see 2 Chronicles ; Ezra ; ; and Nehemiah ; ). In passages like these, the Pentateuch is frequently referred to as "the Book of Moses" or "the Book . Biblical literature - Biblical literature - Old Testament literature: The Torah, or Pentateuch (Five Scrolls), traditionally the most revered portion of the Hebrew canon, comprises a series of narratives, interspersed with law codes, providing an account of events from the beginning of the world to the death of Moses. Modern critical scholarship tends to hold that there were originally four.
Authorship of Pentateuch is discussed briefly based on two main approaches, namely authorship by Moses and Documentary Hypothesis. Mosaic Authorship of the Pentateuch Mosaic authorship is the tradition attributing the five books of the Torah or Pentateuch to Moses, the legendary leader, lawgiver, and prophet of the Israelites who figures as. 4. Following on #3, Hoffmeier seems to think that debunking Wellhausen not only neuters any source analysis of the Pentateuch but de facto puts Mosaic authorship back in its rightful place as the traditional, and problem-free explanation for Pentateuchal origins.

The Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch is supported by the following, among other weighty considerations: The Mosaic era was a literary epoch in the world’s history when such codes were common. It would have been strange if such a leader had not produced a code of laws.

The term Pentateuch is composed of the two Greek words, pente, five, and teuchos, which in later Alexandrine usage signified denotes, therefore, the collection of five books; or, the five books of the law considered as a whole.

Mosaic authorship is the traditional belief that the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, were written by Moses by God's direction.
The books do not name any author, as authorship was not considered important by the society that produced them, and it was only after Jews came into intense contact with author-centric Hellenistic culture in the late Second Temple period.
CLAIM: The author of the book of Hebrews is unknown to us. However, we can still take truth from this book, as God’s inspired Word. From this, some argue that Mosaic authorship is equally unimportant. RESPONSE: These are not analogous, because the author of Hebrews is unknown, while the author of the Pentateuch is clearly stated.

–12; compare to Deut. –4), and it is difficult to imagine how we could trust Him as Lord if He was mistaken about this.
Now let's consider the current state of Old Testament studies. Sincewhen the Jewish philosopher Baruch Spinoza () suggested that Ezra might have authored the Pentateuch, source criticism has grown to such an extent that it has successfully removed serious consideration of Mosaic authorship for many scholars.
Parts of Ezra and Daniel are in this tongue, and antiquity. 44 The Mosaic Authorship and among the Ten Tribes it seems to have generally prevailed, and must further have been strangely corrupted in Samaria by the admixture of the languages spoken by the motley tribes which the Assyrians planted in the land (2 Kings xvii.
24). The Pentateuch never claims divine origin or Mosaic authorship.  While exactly how this became the authoritative view in rabbinic Judaism and early Christianity is uncertain, some evidence regarding this process can be gleaned from the semantic unfolding of the term torah in the Bible.
The Semantic Development of the Term Torah. The term torah means “teaching” or “instruction.”. Another accusation against Mosaic authorship concerns the way Moses is portrayed in the Pentateuch. It is argued that Moses could not be the author of these books because he would not write about himself in the third person.
In the Law, Moses is always referred to in the third person. For example, we read. Torah (/ ˈ t ɔːr ə, ˈ t oʊ r ə /; Hebrew: תּוֹרָה, "Instruction", "Teaching" or "Law") has a range of can most specifically mean the first five books (Pentateuch or five books of Moses) of the 24 books of the Hebrew is commonly known as the Written can also mean the continued narrative from all the 24 books, from the Book of Genesis to the end of.

I was first attracted to this when I was a college student and I was made acquainted with the approach of liberal higher criticism and, fortunately, I sat under the ministry of a pastor, Harold John Ockenga, who had had an.
Those arguing for Mosaic authorship will point to several lines of evidence. Some argue that the unity of composition supports Mosaic authorship. All five books of the Pentateuch are said to present a coherent picture of the origins of humankind, the fall into sin, and the result of that fall.
Higher criticism has shown that the Pentateuch contains a number of references to events, locations, and comments that point to non-Mosaic authorship.
These inconsistencies can be categorized into two groups: 1) a-Mosaica, awkward if ascribed to Moses, and 2) p-Mosaica, likely written after (post) Moses. I am now nearly finished talking about the “Documentary Hypothesis” devised by scholars of the Hebrew Bible to account for the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible.
I have already discussed the traditional view developed in the nineteenth century, especially as it. A final reason that one must defend the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch, instead of sitting by idly and claiming that “it doesn’t really matter who wrote it,” is because Jesus Himself acknowledged that “the Law” came from Moses.
