Some people say that God wrote the Torah. That is clear and I understand it. Others say that people wrote the Torah. That is also clear and I understand it. Then there are people who say that people wrote the Torah, but with "inspiration" from God. And that I do not understand at all.
Within normative Judaism, of course, God wrote the Torah. But even within normative Judaism, the rest of the Tanach was written by people [list in Bava Batra 14b-15a], but under "divine inspiration". And that I don't understand.
Does "inspired" by God mean:
(1) the same as written by God?
(2) a collaboration between people and God, each providing input, both authoritative? But why would God want a collaboration when it comes to laying down His instructions?
(3) that God said one thing but the scrivener wasn't always paying attention and may have written something else? Honest mistakes?
(4) that scribal errors may have crept in over the centuries and we must find them and remove them?
(5) that some teachings have eternal value (that's God's part) and other teachings are transitional (that's the human part), and our task is to find which is which and, at the right time, remove the second according to the political correctness of the day?
