The Pentateuch as Narrative: A Biblical-Theological Commentary – John H. Sailhamer
Sailhamer seeks to understand the Pentateuch through the eyes of its original author. The text of Genesis-Deuteronomy reveals the failure of the Law of the Covenant and the hope in a new covenant that will produce faith.
“The author uses the life of Abraham, not Moses, to illustrate that one can fulfill the righteous requirements of the Law… In effect the author says, ‘Be like Abraham. Live a life of faith, and it can be said that you are keeping the Law.”
