However, in the 17th century CE, this assumption began to be challenged. Since then, the Documentary Hypothesis has undergone significant revision and among many scholars, particularly those in North America, it remains the dominant theory for explaining the composition of the Torah.

Scholars use "source" in a very general way in this context to allow for the ambiguity of what these "sources" were. YHWH is said to walk with humans [see Genesis 2] , the characters of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are not idealized in the narrative, and morality is not absolute. Further, it is the nation of Judah which is emphasized.

Instead of directly speaking to humanity, the E source had God speaking directly to Abraham. This source is usually dated in the 8th or 9th centuries BCE and was likely an import from the Northern Kingdom of Israel. E and J were likely edited together at a point before the exilic period with J being the primary source with E edited in.

P, or the Priestly Source, is the most easily identified of the three sources responsible for Genesis — Numbers. This source is characterized by outlines, order, genealogy, and ritual and sacrifice.

Like J, P focuses on Judah. Whereas JE is clearly narrative, P contains both narrative such as the creation account in Genesis 1 and the flood narrative of Genesis 6—8 and ritual material such as the Holiness Code of Leviticus 17— This makes it very difficult to characterize the genre of P. It is usually thought to be the last of the four sources to compose and redact the Torah, likely active sometime during the Persian period - c.

The Documentary Hypothesis is not without its problems. It has long been recognized that E lacks a clear narrative flow.

Plausible readings of the biblical text are often wrong, whereas anomalies are often correct. The documentation here details the widespread yet low-level variance in the text of the Hebrew Bible as we have received it.
