53 The same can be said of the traditions concerning everything else that happened before the appearance of Israel as a tribal confederation in Palestine. The problem for the historian is that, although there can be no doubt that the Pentateuch sets out to relate events that have happened-and contains a good deal of material relating to historical traditionsthe Pentateuch certainly did not (in Noth's view) originate and was not planned from the outset as a historical work. It was not designed and drafted as a coherent historical narrative.
