Questioning Moses, part 2

With Douglas Petrovich

Mainstream Bible experts and archaeologists don't believe that Moses wrote the first five books of the Bible, despite internal evidence in the Bible (including the words of Jesus himself) that give Moses the credit. Douglas Petrovich, professor of Biblical History and Exegesis at The Bible Seminary in Katy, Texas, has written a book that addresses the issue. The book is: The World’s Oldest Alphabet: Hebrew as the Language of the Proto-Consonantal Script. In it, Petrovich makes the claim that the innovation of alphabetic language took place in Egypt, amongst the Israelites, in the time of Joseph. And that Moses could easily have written the biblical documents attributed to him.
