About the Author

Russell E. Gmirkin is a writer, researcher, and Dead Sea Scrolls scholar living in Portland, Oregon. He is the author of Berossus and Genesis, Manetho and Exodus: Hellenistic Histories and the Date of the Pentateuch (2006).


"In this book, Russell E. Gmirkin has produced a brilliant demonstration of the Hebrew Bible’s dependence on Plato’s Laws, with a focus on the Pentateuch. The demonstration is remarkably clear and convincing, and I am confidant that the theory proposed will be discussed favourably among biblical scholars, and also among classical and philosophical scholars."- Philippe Wajdenbaum, previously Lecturer at the Institute of Advanced Studies, Belgium

"I find this a provocative, stimulating study. This is a significant and exciting contribution to the growing field of interdisciplinary scholarship that explores the influence of Greek culture on the Hebrew Bible. It should be of interest to a number of audiences, those interested in the Hebrew Bible, classicists, comparatists, philosophers and political scientists." - Bruce Louden, The University of Texas at El Paso, USA"Gmirkin's book is a richly detailed (form and motif), historical comparison of Ancient Near Eastern, Greek, and Pentateuchal law collections that comes as a welcome addition to his 2006 work Berossus and Genesis, Manetho and Exodus." - Journal of Theological Studies"... [a] very interesting and well documented study" - Étienne Nodet, French Biblical and Archeological School of Jerusalem, Israel, Revue Biblique, 2018
