Who Authored the Old Testament?Streaming Video - 2007
Questions about the language and construction of the Jewish Bible, especially its first five books, are among the most fascinating in paleography. Was Moses the sole originator of the Pentateuch? Did other writers have a hand in it? How does archaeology complement textual research? In this program, theologian Robert Beckford travels through the Middle East in search of definitive answers. A wide range of scholarship and deep-seated beliefs-encountered in spiritually charged settings, from a Jewish settlement in Hebron to Jerusalem's Shrine of the Book-enable Beckford to piece together the historical and ideological sources of the Old Testament.
