This paper examines how the biblical writings of the "Old Testament" are considered to be a revelation of God's personal dealings with his people and how, as such, the biblical writings hold a unique place in the religious traditions of the Jewish and Christian faiths. It looks at different theories concerning the authorship and analyzes how these theories are built out of the anthropological understanding of how religious belief ascends from myth, which is told in stories and oral traditions.
