Can I agree with them that some passages were not written by Moses and that in some parts there were updates to the type text in Gen 14:14 that is considered a sin in Judaism? I can agree with rabbis that it goes against some Maimonides precepts as it is seen the different opinions in Judaism and if I can agree with ancient rabbis in some respects and also if only I agree with some rabbis with different opinions

sorry for the silly question

  • I do not understand your question. There are those who say that the last verses in the Torah were written by Joshua after the death of Moses. However, others say they were written by Moses in tears as a prophecy. Is that what you meant? Sep 6 '21 at 0:18
  • @sabbahillel The question was on Daniel, not the Torah.

    @pcoz Based on the question Alex lined to, I think the OP meant "Gen[nesis] 14:14" (especially considering the book of Daniel, as we have it, only has 12 chapters). The "dan" part may have slipped in, as the verse Gen 14:14 mentions the place Dan (and that other question is based on Dan being mentioned there).

    The important point is not which human wrote the Torah, but that the Torah in its entirety was dictated by G-d. So Maimonides quotes the Sages that one who says Moses added to the Torah even one letter beyond G-d's dictation is a heretic. The debate over where Moses stopped and Joshua completed the Torah (if he did) and the opinion of the ibn Ezra all fall within this paradigm.

    @MatheusSales We believe that there is an inherent holiness to the words of the Bible beyond their surface meaning, so one cannot "update" names. We also believe that the Bible was written with prophecy, so it is not surprising for it to refer to future events.
