Von Rad agreed and drew attention to the absence of Sinai from the exodus tradition. He cited Deuteronomy 26:5–10 (an early statement of faith that does not mention Sinai) as strong evidence that these two traditions had an independent history of development. It was Rendtorff in the German tradition (OTI, 160–63, and 19771), who recognized the incompatibility of tradition history and documentary approaches. In his work he describes how independent traditions are brought together into individual complexes of tradition (such as the different patriarchal stories—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph).

Thus the third narrative strand isolated by classical source criticism is D (Deuteronomic), associated in the Torah predominantly with the book from which it derives its name (see extensive discussion there). The core of the book of Deuteronomy is often identified as the document that was found in the temple during the reign of Josiah (2 Kings 22–23, but see Wenham 1985). There are great debates over the form of the document found at this time, but in any case, almost all critics date D to the time of Josiah (late seventh GENESIS 45 century).
