Who wrote the Genesis account of creation?
The Book of Genesis is part of a larger collection of divinely inspired (2 Tim. 3:16–17) foundational biblical documents collectively known as the Torah or the Law. Included in the Torah are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Moses is known to us as the human writer of these first five books of the Bible. Both the Old Testament (Josh. 1:7–8, 8:30–31, 23:6; Ezra 6:18, 7:6) and the New Testament (Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:46–47) affirm the Mosaic authorship of the Law, the first five Books of the Bible.
