No impure meat has ever entered my mouth. Thank God for his mercy! This is not accurate according to modern Biblical scholarship. Moses did not write the first 5 books, although tradition says he did. Modern scholars know that several different writers at various times wrote pieces of those books and it was put together sometime in the years before Jesus.
But basically its a gross oversimplification of how our Holy Book was written. Actually he did Sarah, in spite of what liberal scholars say. Jesus even gave credit to Moses; and the Pentateuch was referenced during the times of the Kings and Prophets. This was well before years before Christ. Paul and Peter also both emphasized the inspiration of Scripture. Many people need it to be simplified to help them learn slowly, too much too soon can turn people off. It encourages them to want to learn more. This is amazing. Thank you for doing all of this to help us understand the bible and who the Holy Spirit touched.
Great job! So how can we accurately say that all of these men were led by God? Also how can we say that the people that translated the bible did not put what they want in there? Some traditions suppose Job to have been written by Moses and Hebrews to be written by Paul or Timothy. In the first line you answered my argument. Maybe HE inspired the words to be put down. I am 60 years old now, and oncertainly I was told as a little girl.
There are going to be a lot of questions ask, and a lot of people want know. People will make up answers to suit themselves. Because GOD will tell us himself if we really want to know. Thank you so much! Your overview of the authors of the Bible is incredibly helpful.

You summarize this all so brilliantly. Thanks again! I applaud your admitting right off that you do not know the author of Hebrews—lack of knowledge is not a sin.
It is an unknown kettle of fish. Glad you enjoyed it Dinah! I have been studying the scriptures for a very very long time, but sometimes you can become lazy and just want a small recipe of writers this article was awesome. I really appreciated it. I agree with you about what you said about King David he was a jerk. This was such a great read and I love your style of writing. It was easy, informative, entertaining, and funny! Thank you! I was very interested in your comments on who authored the Bible.
I am a Sunday School Superintendent and Bible teacher. I like your format and, with your permission, start having my teachers use this material for the teen class. Cannot wait or you take on the unknown authors. Ok, I also enjoyed your material. And I also have a youth class and would like to share with them.
Others have always said over Any ideas on who they may be leaving out? There are all kinds of ways to get different counts on this. A good deal of critical scholars and early church leaders take issue with some of the traditional author attributions. Another way to increase the number would be to factor in different schools of Old Testament contributors. For example, some believe that the book of Isaiah was written over a long period of time—that the book was perhaps started by the prophet Isaiah but expanded over time by prophets who followed in his teachings.
Book of 2 Peter
That sentence alone made me not only laugh at loud, but it gave me the giggles all day and when I was in a local synagogue! I, of course, had to share it with the other Jews including the rabbi and we all had a good laugh! Hi Jeffrey, Thanks for your clear articles, which I find useful when preparing study materials for my mature students. If true, this would of course add yet another author ess to Scripture for Chapter 31 of Proverbs, Bathsheba, Blessings, Ray. I love the sketches. Are these available for the public? Who do I contact for copyright and republication rights? Thanks, Jon!
If you use the images or portions of the image anywhere digitally, you can simply link back to this page. He makes it pretty clear that unlike your article here , Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John were NOT written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, nor John, but were written many years later by people using their names so that the works would be given an extra air of authority and be accepted. Thank you for compiling this document.
Very easy to read and informative, the references were very helpful. Shalom my neighbor Agape.
Hi Jeffrey, Without splitting various hairs the comments in this thread show how fractured modern Protestant Christianity actually is thanks to the ongoing effects of the counter-reformation, etc. I suspect that prayer may be involved. Blessings, Ray. Good point and thanks Ray! The entry by Nebuchadnezzar, plus the decrees and letters of the Persian rulers throughout Ezra stand out as examples.

There really were around 40 authors of the Bible, but the Bible and tradition only call out around 35 by name. I do not know who wrote Hebrews. Heads up: this is a really long article. Nehemiah Nehemiah Nehemiah is a cupbearer to the king of Persia when he gets some disturbing news: his countrymen back in Jerusalem are in dire straits, and the city is in shambles Neh And get this: he gets the wall rebuilt in just 52 days And boy, does God deliver: Now God gave Solomon wisdom and very great discernment and breadth of mind, like the sand that is on the seashore.
Ethan Psalms Oh, look, another psalmist! Pr —3 Lemuel Proverbs Again, the Bible tells us very little about this author.
Isaiah Isaiah Isaiah is the earliest,and arguably the most preeminent of the Major Prophets. And he also has some pretty intense visions.
Jonah Jonah One of the more famous characters in the Bible albeit his is one of the least-read books. Haggai Haggai Haggai writes a very brief account of his ministry in the Bible. Malachi Malachi Malachi is the last of the prophets to contribute to the Old Testament. Paul Romans — Philemon Paul may not have the word count that Moses has, but he writes more individual documents than any other biblical author—13, to be exact.
