Does anyone know who wrote it? Just curious.
I would have to say it was GOD inspired, but written by Moses. He probably also wrote the first 5 Books except for the last chapter of deuteronomy which tells about his death.
Some people think that originally Adam wrote it and that it was preserved on the Ark. Interesting idea.
Perhaps it was passed down orally for all those generations. The Jewish people are known for their incredible memorizing capacity. Jewish school children memorize Psalm 119 - the longest Psalm in the Bible.
maybe God told moses what to write.
Probably Nehemiah... The first 5 books of the Old Test.... was writen by him.
This is a great article on the subject from theopedia:
Prof. R K Harrison’s Intro to the OT argued, if memory serves, that written family histories were available to Moses. The C19 suggestion that Moses could neither read nor write has long been scotched by the evidence available even in those days. He might well have been a librarian in Egypt. And plenty of oral traditions existed, which Moses could, as a poet (so Saint Jerome, & Calvin) & historian, have made good use of under divine inspiration.
Possibly some redaction was done by Joshua (eg re. Moses' death), but the antiquity is well shown by [FONT="]K A Kitchen’s Reliability Of The OT (2003).[/FONT]
seeing how moses was brought up in luxury,i would imagine him to be at the top for such things in them days.
