Description

Contrary to Scriptural claims, many scholars believe that the Torah was written after or together with the prophets. As a test case, I read and analyzed 88 articles related to covenant curses. Many articles only talked about covenant theology, but several referenced the origin of the Torah. Some mentioned how the covenant curses were shaped by the Torah, while others noted how themes from the prophets were based on ANE traditions and the Torah. Overall, most authors thought that the Torah was written before the prophets, which is in contrast to many source-critical assumptions about the provenance of the covenant curses and needs to be considered in any final analysis.
