Introduction to Genesis and the Torah: Authorship (Part 3)
We continue surveying biblical evidence for Moses' role in the origin and composition of the Torah. After a bit of review and further discussion of general and special revelation, we see how Moses assigned the Levites, under the supervision of his nephew Ithamar, to keep records of the Tabernacle of Testimony (Lev 38:21). We learn from this that Moses sometimes used scribes and other assistants to aid him in his work (e.g., Aaron, Eleazar, Ithamar, the Levites, the elders, and Joshua). We also briefly see how a book like Leviticus attests to its twofold, divine-Mosaic origin, without explicitly stating "He wrote."
