1.3 Questions for individual work/group work/discussion

  1. I am most interested in Jesus with his message of the gospel. The law books of Moses are outdated for us Christians. Couldn’t we just skip this part of the course?
  2. “Whoever denies the authorship of Moses … denies the historical credibility of the reports and laws, since the texts receive the taint of forgery” (Ellisen, p.22). Does the authority of Scripture really depend on the authorship of the entire Pentateuch by Moses himself?
  3. In the past, people were better than they are today, you can often hear that. Does prehistory see it that way as well?
