[As per BMJ:]
Originally Moses' 5 books were split among 3 scrolls.
On the base of the styles of these books, the studies reveal 3 authors like:
- J. (Jehova-Jahve) wireter(s) who are using the Jahve (YHWE) expression for God, translated in some Bibles as "LORD, God"
- -> these might have been written after the exodus from Egypt.
- E. (Elóhim) writer(s) who uses the expression of Elóhim for God, used in most of translations as "God".
- -> these books might have been written well after the tribes of Israel moved into Canaan.
- P. Priesty-papers who uses ancient expression of "Él Saddj" for God ("Almighty God").
- -> These might have been written during the deportation into Babilon or shortly after return.
When these different books were merged in one, the editors left all of them intact even if they were contradicting each-other, having them concerned to convey the message about God then to have a homogenous writing.
Sections of the Genesis (1 Moses):
- 1-11: Creation of the World and the ancient history of mankind.
- 12-36: The Grand ancestors of Israel from Abraham to Jacob.
- 37-50: The sotry of Joseph and his brothers.
