Exploring the Pentateuch Conference


Presented by the Horn Lectureship Series Presents

March 25-26, 2018

At present there is major divergence among scholars studying the composition of the Pentateuch. The Documentary Hypothesis, the former dominant theory, is now being revised and criticized, and alternative approaches are suggested. For the conference “Exploring the Composition of the Pentateuch,” we have invited respected scholars to dialogue on how to approach the question of the composition of the Pentateuch. This conference has the promise of contributing to scholarship in general on this topic at a time when many scholars are groping for good answers.

Public lectures (Seminary Chapel; no cost):

  • Sunday, March 25. 5:00-7:30 p.m.
  • Monday, March 26. 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Open sessions of the Pentateuch Conference will take place as part of the Siegfried H. Horn Lectureship Series. All presentations will take place in the Seminary Chapel. Co-curricular credit will be available.
