THE CONTINUITY OF THE BIBLE

[Series showing the progressive unfoldment of the Christ, Truth, throughout the Scriptures]

"E": An Elohistic Source of the Pentateuch

From the December 1968 issue of The Christian Science Journal


In the previous article, mention was made of the primitive source often called "J," written in Judah and stressing the term Jehovah, one of the spellings used for Yahweh or Yahwah, often translated Lord. This is the name for Deity so characteristic of the account of creation that begins in the second chapter of Genesis, from verse 4 onward.
