“Genesis” is Greek for “origin,” “source,” “generation” or “beginning.” The original Hebrew title, “Bereshith” means “In the Beginning.” The Book of Genesis does not name its author and the book ends three centuries before the birth of Moses. But the whole of Scripture, the Talmud, the first century historian, Josephus, and the Early Church are unanimous that he is the author. Scriptures that identify Moses as the author of the Torah, the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible include, Exodus 17:14, Leviticus 1:1-2, Numbers 33:2, Deuteronomy 1:1, Joshua 1:7, 1 Kings 2:3, 2 Kings 14:6, Ezra 6:18, Nehemiah 13:1, Daniel 9:11-13, Malachi 4:4, Matthew 8:4, Mark 12:26, Luke 16:29, John 7:19, Acts 26:22, Romans 10:19, 1 Corinthians 9:9, and 2 Corinthians 3:15. And if you accept that Moses is the human writer of these words in Genesis, where did he get the information? He wasn’t there, so how did he know? He was highly educated in Egypt (Acts 7:22), where, under the inspiration of God he had access to all the available records, manuscripts and oral narratives, including those brought with Noah on the Ark, and he personally met with God on many occasions. He was led by God, instructed by the Holy Spirit, and it was God’s intention that this man, Moses, would write the Book originally entitled, “In the Beginning.”
