The first five books of the Bible are known as the Torah of Moses. According to tradition, they are believed to be the work of a single, ancient author – Moses. Biblical scholarship denies the fundamentalist claims of Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch, proposing instead that the five books reflect multiple hands over a long history of composition and transmission.
What is claimed in the texts? Do these sacred scriptures provide clues as to who wrote them and when they were written? In this eye-opening series, the traditional views held by Jews and Christians and the academic view of multiple authors are respectfully weighed against evidence from the texts of the Hebrew Scriptures.
What did Moses write? Can we discern the hand of Moses within the Torah? Can we find THE Torah within OUR Torah?
