Dr. Peter Gentry on the Documentary Hypothesis Pt. 2

Scholarly demolition 

Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart continues his interview of Professor Gentry. Tim Mahoney's film series Patterns of Evidence presented the Documentary Hypothesis attack on Moses as the author of Genesis and the whole Torah. An intriguing screen moment was when Prof. Peter Gentry recounts asking his own professor about a book by preeminent academic Umberto Cassuto called The Documentary Hypothesis. His professor responds, "We don’t read things like that here." Really? This little book presents eight lectures delivered at Jerusalem's Hebrew University by Dr. Cassuto, holding professorships at the University of Florence and the University of Rome until the Italian fascists enacted their anti-Semitic laws when he had to leave and went to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Gentry, who studied language and Old Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, Jerusalem University College, and earned his degrees from the University of Toronto, talks Bob through Cassuto's fourth lecture against the Documentary Hypothesis affirming the integrity of the authorship of the Pentateuch! See this also at rsr.org/exodus#gentry and you may want to hear Part 1 and Part 3 of this series.

* BEL/RSR March 2020 Telethon Progress: We're at $35,550 of our $40,000 goal (thanks in part to the $7k NC matching offer). Now, from Dakota Ridge Ranch in Morrison, Colorado we have a $10,000 offer to match a single $10,000 contribution. This would bring us to $55,550! And if you can't do that (few of us can) perhaps you can still help with a donationsubscription, or by getting a BEL/RSR resource! April Update: The telethon reached $59,000. Thank you all!
