Gentry, How to Understand the Biblical ProphetsReal Science Radio host Bob Enyart concludes his interview with 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. In an intriguing screen moment, 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 Professor Cassuto who had held professorships at the University of Florence and the University of Rome. He left Italy for Israel when the Italian fascists enacted their anti-Semitic laws. Dr. Gentry, who studied language and Old Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, Jerusalem University College, and earned his degrees from the University of Toronto, discusses Cassuto's final lectures against the Documentary Hypothesis affirming the integrity of the authorship of the Pentateuch.
