Maybe his human editors did?
I can just about hear the back room screwup, 'you know I could have swore that I read something about this somewhere, oh hell, what do I care, he is a big guy, let him do is own proof reading!'
There's certainly plenty of textual evidence in the "five books of Moses" that Moses didn't write them, and you don't even have to do the kind of fancy analysis that lead to the J/E/P/D/R "standard model"
Refernces to something being true "to this day" when Moses (allegedly) describes himself doing it are a red flag. Why would you say that unless you were writing the account hundreds of years after it supposedly happened?
But of course someone in the new testament said the durn things were written by Moses so that turned a rural legend into "fact".
I think most Christians today would prefer you not to mention the old testament, its like mentioning the second world war in Germany.
Yeah that works fine, David. Except that Jebus mentioned it. And so did the author of "Matthew," incessantly.
