Why Moses?
Moses was a literary artist

Author's Bias: Interpretation: conservative

Literary artist

The Pentateuch has a smooth cohesive literary structure with each book sharing an essential part of the history, plot, and theology of the story.

The author intended the work to be read as a work of history that recounts what has taken place in the distant past.

The variety of literary genres and devices used were within the larger context of instructional history writing about God’s work in their lives.

The literary beauty of the individual books within the Pentateuch surpassed the skill of redactor(s) mechanically combining a collection of stories.

Only Moses, who had the literary education in the royal court of Egypt and who the Lord spoke to as a friend, had the qualifications and skills to be the author of the Pentateuch.
