Who wrote the Bible?

Post by Anaxagoras »

I don’t hold myself out as any kind of authority. I came across this video and I was wondering if any of this sounds about right. He presents three different theories.



He doesn’t really talk much about dates either.

The Supplementary Hypothesis does not really work since P is its own separate story. It does not appear to be pieces created to add to another source. Actually, D is that in which you have a "Pre-Josiah He Dead" layer and then the "Oh Fuck He's Dead" layer.

J and E are also rather separate. It is just that it appears that J and E were combined by a redactor(s) at some stage, and E is incomplete. There are some who try to deny the existence of an E layer, but there are, in my mind, too many contradictions between J and E to sustain that.

There are also layers to Leviticus which he does not explore.

Jewish scholars also call it the Pentateuch.

I am deeply grateful to the scholars here because not only are you gentlemen a source of knowledge, but also much needed wisdom in a world dominated by rap music and shit heads.

It also means that I can safely not give a fuck. I rest comfortabley knowing it's in good hands! 👍

Thought I had something to add.

I was wrong.

Sorry.
