hi.

this is a point i've often made with conservative students:  even a 
hellenistic composition may attest to a historical moses. regardless, 
there's never PROOF either way, 100%.  that goes without saying.

but i think there is something to be said about date and place of 
composition when considering reliability...  or at least ideology...

i would also think, for students of israelite religion, that it would make 
a difference if D < P, or vice versa.  after all, isn't this what all the 
fuss is about, from Kaufmann onwards....?  that traditionally P < D 
necessarily?
