J

Resource Toolbox
The sign for one of the principle sources critical scholars propose for the Pentateuch. The name derives from the personal name for God, Yahweh (German Jahveh), which characterizes this source. The source is thought to have originated in Judah earlier than the E source (about 900 B.C.). Recent research has raised radical questions about this source and theory even among critical scholars. See Pentateuch ; Bible, History of Interpretation .
