  • Graf-Wellhausen theory posits four distinct schools of authorship for the Pentatuech
  • They are mainly differentiated by the terms they use for the divine
  • Yawhist writing tends to use the tetragammon to describe the divine
  • That is, the four letters of the divine name, JHWH (vowels are not used in Hebrew)
  • So the Yahwist school tended to use the term Yahweh or Jehovah for the divine name.
