In this 2019 documentary film directed by Tim Mahoney and sequel to Patterns of Evidence: Exodus, Mahoney examines whether Moses directly wrote the first five books of the Bible, which are commonly known as the Pentateuch or the Torah. Some scholars over the years have proposed that these five books come from five differen sources from the various times and stages of Israel's history. Some have even claimed that parts of the Torah were written as late as after the exile of Judah.
Mahoney asks, "If Moses did not author the Torah, as Scripture says, then some of the Bible is true, and some is not. How can we know what to trust? Is the Bible based on history, or merely folklore?"
According to Mahoney, the biggest overarching question is whether Moses actually had the ability to write the events of the Exodus as a true eye-witness account, as is referenced in Scripture, or did the Exodus of Israel predate alphabetic writing. Most mainstream scholars believe Moses' authorship to be an impossibility due to commonly-cited historical dating systems which place the story of the exodus to 1250 B.C., hundreds of years before the invention of the alphabet in which the Torah is written.
Mahoney examines the earliest forms of text including hieroglyphics, and more recently-discovered cave inscriptions found in the Sinai region which some believe links the Hebrews to an early alphabetic system and offers a new narrative about the origins of the first alphabet.
"In my own search for the evidence, I had to ask myself if I believe the Bible because it's true, or because it's just what I believed because of my upbringing," says Mahoney. "Since the rest of the Bible is based on the writings of Moses, the credibility of the exodus and the rest of the Bible is directly connected to the question of Moses' authorship."
