Who Wrote the Pentateuch? with Jeffrey Stackert

Interview with Jeffrey Stackert: Who Wrote the Pentateuch?

May 7, 2018

In this episode, Pete & Jared speak with Jeffrey Stackert about the origins of the Pentateuch, or the first five books of the Old Testament.

And many of the contradictions in the text may actually be indications of converging viewpoints from editors including or omitting details to preserve the integrity of the text.
