A Commentary on the Pentateuch - Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy.

.

The Pentateuch is the name given to the five 'writings of Moses',Genesis, Exodus, Levitivus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. Genesis is the book of beginnings. In Genesis will be found the story of creation, the fall, the flood, and the lives of the patriarchs. In Exodus will be found the story of the deliverance from Egypt and the giving of the covenant containing the ten commandments, in Leviticus are found details of the religious ordinances of Israel, in Numbers we have the story of their first journey to the promised land leading up to the moment of second entry although it contains very little about the actual thirty eight year wandering,in Deuteronomy we have Moses final farewell speeches,preparatory to entering Canaan. Thus Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy comprise the whole story of God's salvation history from Adam to the appointment of Joshua. For the Commentary on the Pentateuch see below.

A Commentary On The Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy

By Dr Peter Pett BA BD (Hons - Kings College, London University) DD

In order to understand the Bible we need to understand the Pentateuch. Its source was Moses, the first and one of the greatest of the prophets. And it is the foundation on which the remainder of the Bible was built.

The aim of this commentary is in order to assist the reader to understand the Pentateuch. It is the purpose for which this site has been set up.
