This week on Back to Basics, I will prepare us for our study on Genesis by looking at "Moses: the man who wrote the Pentateuch" the first 5 books of the Bible including Genesis.

The revelation of God's name: LORD/Jehovah/Yahweh is the key proof of Moses' authorship. It is given to him before he goes to Egypt where he will prove the power of the LORD'S name in the 10 plagues. After his 2 periods of 40 days on Mount Sinai with the LORD he asks to see His face. The outcome is that the LORD proclaims His name which floods the soul of Moses and I compare it to a spiritual baptism in the Spirit preparing Moses for leading Israel in the wilderness where he faces defeat and isolation.

Moses was a man who heard God speaking aloud His name and he was one of the key writers of Scripture.
