Moses Wrote the Pentateuch

There is abundant biblical and extra-biblical evidence that Moses wrote the Pentateuch during the wilderness wanderings after the Jews left their slavery in Egypt. The attack on the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch is nothing less than an attack on the veracity, reliability, and authority of the Word of Almighty God.

Moses or Hammurabi?

The Babylonian King Hammurabi wrote a code of law that included many seemingly biblical ideas on morals, but his writing took place before Moses wrote the Bible’s first books. Accounts—even if written down prior to the books of Moses—are distortions and counterfeits of the original truth which Adam, Noah, and their immediate descendants knew.

Did Moses Record His Own Death?

How could Moses be the author of Deuteronomy when his obituary is listed as the last chapter? Moses is considered the author of the first five books of the Bible; the Pentateuch. Liberal scholars have rejected this claim, and theories abound as to the “true” authorship. Despite the detractors, the life and death of Moses are contained within these books, along with the account of the creation of the universe and the calling of the chosen people through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel).
