The Start of the Written Hebrew Language
Patterns of Evidence From the Movie Patterns of Evidence by Timothy Mahoney, I have come to understand that there are many scholars who believe Hebrew did not exist at the time of Moses and therefore he could not have written the 5 books of the Torah.

The Seed, The Promised Land, and Faith
(by Henry Mate ) When I was in the mainstream church, little was heard of Eretz Israel (The Land of Israel). One day a friend read for me a verse in the New Covenant.
