Some “Christians” doubt Moses wrote the Pentateuch. They prefer to give credit to unknown authors who added sentences here and paragraphs there. When you do the math the result is bad theology!
Undermining the scriptural authenticity of the past by default undermines the scriptural authenticity of the past-future. In other words, if an individual is unable to posses the ability to trust the creditability of the historical scriptures then how can one trust their proclaimed future prophecies? I mean, if one is a Christian then the reliability of the Messianic prophecies are more than a little important!
The simple fact of the matter is doubting Moses equates to not only challenging what we believe about Jesus – it challenges Jesus! And that’s a challenge (on more than a theological level) that I’m not interested in issuing.
No doubt about it, when it comes to faith in Jesus the Christ, the Bible’s ancient GED program (Genesis, Exodus, Deuteronomy) taught by Moses will take a person further than many modern-day professors and their theological PhD’s from universities.
“For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote about me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” (John 5:46-47 NKJV)
