Pentateuch: Examining the Territory

examdates.jpg A recent email suggested that I sketch out the territory for the forthcoming Pentateuch examination. So here goes:

Questions on the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch, the “documentary hypothesis” and the present state of scholarly analysis.

Questions on the character and flavour of each individual book: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.

Questions on major themes: such as covenant, sacrifice, priesthood, sin, creation.

Hope that clarifies things a little. I will suggest further areas during the revision seminars mid-May and post additional material here such as the last two posts below.

For invaluable background reading please go to for a wealth of material. Check out the whole site: it’s a whole library of generously donated resources on the Pentateuch and other OT subjects.
