Overview

In this volume, Dr. Toffteen discusses the component parts of the book of Exodus and their historical authenticity based on the division of the text of the Hexateuch into four documents: the J. (Javistic), E. (Elohistic), D. (Deuteronomic) and P. (Priestly) documents. Toffteen then posits the theory that there were indeed two Exodi from Egypt, some hundreds of years apart.

This volume is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, teachers of the Bible, or anyone studying the book of Exodus. With Logos Bible Software, this volume is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to the Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations in your library.
