So the Torah cycle for 2013-14 actually begins on 28 September, which means there’re a few weeks yet before I start blogging in earnest. But I thought it’d be good to kick things off by addressing the question of whether Moses actually wrote the Torah, because it’s become quite common to challenge the idea in academic/theological circles today.

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a fan of Creation Ministries International. By and large, they’re a really good source of information for things like creation science, Biblical archaeology and the reliability of Scripture. So I want to share a few of their articles on this subject; the content is focused mainly on Genesis, but I think the same principles apply to the rest of Moses’ writings.

Did Moses really write Genesis?
Jesus Christ on the infallibility of Scripture

And on the importance of reading Genesis correctly, with belief in Mosaic authorship:
Should Genesis be taken literally?
The use of Genesis in the New Testament

Incidentally, there’re lots of other very interesting resources on the CMI website (e.g. Q&A on Genesis, while we’re on the subject). They have thousands of well researched articles and a good search engine, so while you’re there, you might want to look up other topics that might’ve made you wonder when it comes to creationism and Bible history too, like dinosaurs, Egyptian chronology, Noah’s Ark, ancient Israel, radiometric dating, the Big Bang, etc. You name it. Enjoy~
