For many the question on how was the Bible written is a mystery. Even if someone agrees on the inspiration of the Bible, for many the mystery remains on how the Bible became the Bible? If God revealed His words to Moses, how did those words get from Moses to us today?
The question easily extends itself to all 40 writers of the 66 books, which make up the Bible. What was the language was the Bible written in? What was it written on?

Wellhausen based his theory on the idea that writing did not appear amongst the Hebrews until many years after Moses. From the region of Babylon, one of the most famous written documents preserved in stone is the Code of Hammurabi B.
