The Pentateuch

  Conveners: Todd Patterson, Michael Cox      Email conveners

We’re exploring the five books of Moses through historical background, diachronic and synchronic studies, and theological interpretation, with particular attention given to integrating these methods toward a better understanding of the Pentateuch itself or the role of the Pentateuch in Biblical Theology.

This year we finish a two-year series on the dating of Pentateuchal sources by focusing on the absolute dating of D. For more information, contact the conveners.
