Witsius called this succinct volume “the apologetics of the Pentateuch.” In the late 1600s, there was much discussion and dissension on the authorship and validity of the first five books of the Old Testament. Witsius joins the dialogue with Was Moses the Author of the Pentateuch? Answered in the Affirmative. In it, he outlines the history and evidence for Moses as the author of the Pentateuch, addressing such topics as objections to Moses being the author, the character of Moses, examination of various Scripture passages, and evidence found in the New Testament. He also mentions the observations of other philosophers on this subject, such as Spinoza and Hobbes.
