Part 3 contains a covenant Moses makes with Israel and relates the commissioning of Joshua.

Part 4 concludes with blessing of the tribes of Israel, and a narrative about the death and burial of Moses. Deuteronomy, and as such the Torah, concludes with the people of Israel poised to enter the promised land.

Composition Traditionally, it was largely assumed by Jews and Christians alike that Moses was the author of the Torah. However, in the 17th century CE, this assumption began to be challenged.

This source is characterized by outlines, order, genealogy, and ritual and sacrifice. Like J, P focuses on Judah.

Whereas JE is clearly narrative, P contains both narrative such as the creation account in Genesis 1 and the flood narrative of Genesis 6—8 and ritual material such as the Holiness Code of Leviticus 17— For Linux, click here and choose either "Open" or "Run".
