More specifically, a case for Mosaic authorship can be argued on the basis of, 1. statements concerning the writing activity of Moses as found in the Pentateuch itself, as found in the rest of the OT, and as found in the NT; 2. Nevertheless it is helpful to present in brief a case for Mosaic authorship. The Pentateuch is, in a sense, an anonymous work since it does not explicitly state who wrote it. the fact that the involvement of Moses as the principle human protagonist in the record of Israel’s deliverance, desert experiences, and its birth as a nation in covenant–relationship with Yahweh, makes him the logical choice for not only the recording of those events, but, more importantly, as the author of the theological message forged from those events. Points 3 and 4 require no supportive argument; they are reasonable logical assumptions.
This is evident in that when the Jews were driven into exile, it was the books of Moses that were read most frequently in the synagogues.
