He is the earliest of the 4 writers and is thought to have written his portion in the 9 th century B.C. 2. The Elohist (E)- This author was thought to of been from Israel/North. He is the second earliest of the writers and is thought to have written his portion around the 7 th or 8 th Century B.C. 3.
