Abstract When ZAW was founded in 1881, the »Newest Documentary Hypothesis« was on the way to victory. Of course a glance at the history of research shows that the Documentary, Fragment and Supplementary Hypotheses were generally combined together, and this is also the case with most of the »new departures« discussed in research today. To that extent the version of the Documentary Hypothesis propounded by B. Schwartz, J. Baden and others makes a rather dated impression. After a critical review of the currently popular theories about the Pentateuch, three issues are examined, with reference to texts such as Gen 15, Ex 3 and 6, Dtn 34 and Jos 24: the independence of the patriarchal and Exodus traditions, the nature of the so-called »Priestly Writing«, and the alternative »Pentateuch or Hexateuch«. It appears that the most persuasive explanation for the origin of the Pentateuch is still, as it was 125 years ago, a combination of the three types of hypothesis.
