A quick check of Wikipedia indicates that there were many authors, and we don't know who a lot of the early ones were.

Is this a serious seeking of knowledge or simply trolling?
For the serious seeker, there are far better places to pose this question than here.
However, Peter--the follower, and three-time denier of Jesus, wrote in a letter we have as 2 Peter,
" For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

(2 Peter 1:16-21 ESV)

So far this should answer some questions but brings up more questions....
When was the Bible written and who wrote it? | List of Dates Bible Written | Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry

What language is the original written in?

Still wondering where the original copy of the bible is kept?

J, D, E and P wrote the Torah. Paul wrote a whole bunch of the NT (regrettably) but some of the stuff attributed to him isn't his. Bunch of other authors involved too. There are no original copies.

As much as we humans seem to prize religious relics, IMO, it is good that there are no original autographs. People would treat them as magical devices rather than consider the wisdom they contain.

Kerry's comments about J, E, D, and P as the authors is a theory. People seeking a humanistic understanding of the authorship of the Bible looked at the first 5 books--commonly attributed to Moses, and saw several different names of God in use. they theorized that one author know God only as Jehovah, and another, only as Elohim. These are in Hebrew--which is the main language of the OT. Then along came a Redactor (editor) who put the writings of the two together. Finally, some documents regarding the priesthood were added to give credibility to that function.
Realize, however, that all this is theory, only.
One of the problems is that it assumes that the various names of God used, are simply due to ignorance of other names. It denies the possibility that an author may choose the name of God that best fits the context of the story. Thus, it would be expected that when writing about the Covenant-keeping God--who chose the descendants of Israel and made them "His people"--that the author would most naturally use that name, Jehovah. At the same time, when the author writes about God as All-Powerful, and Self-Existing, the use of El, or Elohim would be proper and expected.

So then Moses was the first to write about all this. I guess a better way to put it is what race of people was Moses?

Is the old testement before Jesus and the new testement after Jesus
What is the Koran? Is it another interpretation of the same thing?
What is the Asian bible called?

Absolutely because we definitely wouldn't want anyone treating the bible like a magical book.

No serious scholar thinks Moses wrote the Torah. It's a compiled set of books.

Well, that is one opinion. Backed up, of course, by many scholars who share the same opinion. Anyone who does not agree, is simply not a serious scholar. B
QED you proved it!

How many members of the SBL believe Moses wrote the Torah? I studied with one of the most prominent conservative Christian scholars of the OT and even he didn't think Moses wrote the Torah even though he rejected the documentary hypothesis.
