Announcing a New SBS Meetup -- Moses vs. the Documentary Hypothesis: Source Criticism in the Torah

Announcing a New Secular Bible Study Meetup

Moses vs. the Documentary Hypothesis: Source Criticism in the Torah

Presenter & Discussion Moderator: Nate Ramsayer

When: Tuesday, June 15,[masked]:00 PM

Trinity United Methodist Church
2511 Taylor Street NE
Minneapolis, MN 44418

Meetup Description:

How did the Bible come into formation?
Why are there two creation stories in Genesis?
Did the ancient Israelites always worship one God?
Do the Torah stories contain any similarities to other ancient near-Eastern myths?

Come find out at the Secular Bible Study!
"U" researcher and "Resurrecting the Dead Sea Scrolls Community" presenter Nate Ramsayer returns as speaker-moderator to guide SBS members through a short lecture and several small group activities concerning one of the most interesting and unresolved questions about the Bible: Who wrote the Torah?
Also known as the Pentateuch, these first five books of the Old Testament (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy) are Judaism's founding legal and ethical religious texts, as well as the source of many of its myths. Was the author of the Torah truly the one and only Moses, or was it many authors? In Nate's words, "This is a great topic for SBS because it not only has a number of small group discussions, but also because it is so cool! This topic epitomizes why textual and source criticism of the Bible is exciting, as well as necessary. If I could lecture about just one topic ever, this would be it!"

So, The Law is laid down! You cannot miss -- Moses vs. The Documentary Hypothesis!
