Scholars agree that the first strand in Genesis, Exodus, and Numbers was written by an author whom they call J, who lived in the tenth century before Christ.

In The Book of J, accompanying David Rosenberg's startling new translation, America's greatest literary critic, Harold Bloom, asserts that J was a writer of the stature of Homer, Shakespeare, and Tolstoy

In this unique book there are several simularities between 'J' and the prophet Jonah. they lived around the same time. Both were Hebrew under the rule of Jerobaum II. Assuming the 'Book of Jonah' was written by the prophet, which illustrates all the charactoristics of a passionate yet powerfull writter and plus of course the obvious his name beggins with the letter J. My question is, Could the three texts of gennesis, exidus,and numbers, been written by the same oracle sent to nineveth by gods command?
