Of course there is. It is generally accepted that there was at least 4 authors, or schools, involved in contructing the Book of Genesis. Why do think there are so many anachronisms in the texts? How can Moses have written about things that happened after he was dead? Also, why do we have 2 different creation myths and two different Flood myths? If there was only one author of The Book of Genesis then it would not be in the mess that it is in, it would read far more smoothly.
â€œThe book of the law of Mosesâ€ and similar references to the first five books of the Bible, of which Genesis is one, are to be found often from the time of Mosesâ€™ successor, Joshua, onward.
But this doesn't prove anything Peg? Nowhere in the Book of Genesis is the author identified, or even hinted at.
Personally, I do not think that Moses even existed, the fact that we don't even know his name is a pretty bad slip up.
Mosesâ€™ writership has never been questioned by the Jews.
You really need to stop pulling these ridiculous statements out of your butt.
You really do not seem to tire of simply making things up Peg, honestly where do you keep digging up all this misinformation from?
it is made up of many hundreds of manuscripts.
How do you know this?
Chapter 1 and Chapter 5 of genesis for instance would be contained in two separate scrolls.
Utter bullshit Peg.
The Bible was not divided up into chapter and verse until about 750 years ago, more than 2000 years after Genesis was supposed to be written. You should check out Cardinal de Sancto Caro and Stephen Langton.
So, there was no chapter one or chapter five or chapter anything, you are just making up crap again. In fact, check out DSS IQISa, it contains the entire book of Isaiah.
When the early collators put them together, they made them into book form. they decided where a verse and chapter begins and ends.
As I said, if you are going to make things up you should make sure that the person you are discussing these things with is as ignorant of the Bible as you are.
Will you please stop posting things that you pull out your butt?
