Bible -Old Testament - When was these Composed & written

Hebrew Bible or Old Testament consist of many books, all of them revolves around tales and events concentrated around a small landscape with very little Population called Israel. OT has 3 divisions namely - Torah, Nabium & Kethubim, and using their first letter are called TANAK usually. 

During Jesus days only two portions were complete and he tells Law (Torah) and Prophets (Nabium) several times and Jesus said all things are  Over this is End when Messiah comes after Elijah.

 Luke 16:16  “The Law and the Prophets were until John; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is preached, and everyone forces Violently his way into it.

Ketubim means Writings were added later than Jesus
Bible tales revolve around many gods and a local god for Israel named Yahweh but fraudulently translated as Lord. The Agenda of the Story  promotes Genocide, Rape, Slave trade all in the name of this "god of Israel". Bible says Hebrews are Migrating outsiders invaded Canaan, killing several Millions and taking over their Properties and Virgin Girls. The "god of Israel" wants a share of Virgins Girls also. 

Renowned American Theologian Henry O Thompson  "Authority, The Bible, Who Needs it"(ISPCK -1994) makes very clear 

Bible Tales gives number of Outsiders who migrated to Canaan.
 Numbers 1:46 The total number of men counted was 603,550 men excluding Levites who were 20 years are More

 Numbers 26:62 The total number of males one month or older from the tribe of Levi was 23,000. 
If we take a family of 5, total population with wife and children would make 6,26,550 x 5 =31,32,750 + Cattle travelled for 40 years in the Desert.  
Deuteronomy 9:1  “Listen, you Israelites! You will go across the Jordan River today. You will go into that land to force out nations greater and stronger than you. Their cities are big and have walls as high as the sky!

Countries & Races of Canaan
Genesis 15: 18 So on that day the Lord made a promise and an agreement with Abram. He said, “I will give this land to your descendants. I will give them the land between the River of Egypt and the great river Euphrates. 19 This is the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites,20 Hittites, Perizzites, Rephaites, 21 Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites, and Jebusites.”

10 different races or country people with more population means 
30 x  10 = 3 Crore population in Israel when Moses must have come, even seeing some of them are smaller around 2 Crore population. 

DAVID's Country Population.

1 Chronicles 21:5 ... In Israel there were 1,100,000 men who could use a sword. And there were 470,000 men in Judah who could use a sword. Joab did not count the tribes of Levi and Benjamin because he did not like King David’s order. 
Population total could mean - if 10 Clans add 15.7 Lakhs, add another two should make around 18 Lakh, this is only Able Soldiers, take 20 Lakhs as male and 5 per family would make 1Crore Population 
1 Chronicles 22:14   David said "Solomon, I have worked hard making plans for building the Lord’s Temple. I have given 3750 tons of gold and about 37,500 tons of silver. I have given so much bronze and iron that it cannot be weighed. And I have given wood and stone. Solomon, you can add to them.

ANY Person with reasoning could understand the foolish statement of the above, 3000 years back. 

Bible tales are dated with few reference like this as BIBLE has no meaningful truth in it. 

1 Kings 6:1So in the month of Ziv, the second month of the year, during Solomon’s fourth year as king, he began work on the Temple. This was 480 years after the Israelites left Egypt.

King Solomon is dated to BCE 970-930, i.e., Tales of Moses belong to 15th Century BCE.

BIBLE TALES Itself give when LAW Was FABRICATED IN Few times. 
IF KING & PEOPLE TORE Means an unknown book is now newly found

 2 Kings 22: Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, “Look, I found the Book of the Law in the Lord’s Temple!” Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and Shaphan read it. He went to King Josiah and told him what happened. Shaphan said, “Your servants have gathered all the money that was in the Temple. They gave it to the men who supervise the work on the Lord’s Temple.”10 Then he told the king, “And Hilkiah the priest also gave this book to me.” Then Shaphan read the book to the king. 11 When the king heard the words of the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes to show he was sad and upset. 12 Then he gave a command to Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Acbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the secretary, and Asaiah the king’s servant. 13 King Josiah said, “Go and ask the Lord what we should do. Ask for me, for the people, and for all Judah. Ask about the words of this book that was found. The Lord is angry with us, because our ancestors did not listen to the words of this book. They did not obey all the commands that were written for us.” 14 So Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam, Acbor, Shaphan, and Asaiah went to Huldah the woman prophet. Huldah was the wife of Shallum son of Tikvah, son of Harhas. He took care of the priests’ clothes. Huldah was living in the second quarter in Jerusalem. They went and talked with Huldah. 15 Then Huldah said to them, “The Lord, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me: 16 ‘The Lord says this: I am bringing trouble on this place and on the people who live here. These are the troubles that are mentioned in the book that the king of Judah read. 17 The people of Judah have left me and have burned incense to other gods. They made me very angry. They made many idols. That is why I will show my anger against this place. My anger will be like a fire that cannot be stopped!’

Another TALE Tells EZRA COMPOSED THE TORAH. UNKNOWN Law read first time.

Nehemiah 8:1 So all the Israelites met together in the seventh month of the year. They were united and in complete agreement. They all met together in the open place in front of the Water Gate. All the people asked Ezra the teacher to bring out the Book of the Law of Moses, which the Lord had given to the Israelites. So Ezra the priest brought the law before those who had met together. This was on the first day of the month. It was the seventh month of the year. Men, women, and anyone old enough to listen and understand were at the meeting. Ezra read in a loud voice from the Book of the Law from early morning until noon. He was facing the open place that was in front of the Water Gate. He read to all the men and women, and to everyone old enough to listen and understand. All the people listened carefully and paid attention to the Book of the Law.
Ezra stood on a high wooden stage. It had been built just for this special time. On his right side stood Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Uriah, Hilkiah, and Maaseiah. And on his left side stood Pedaiah, Mishael, Malkijah, Hashum, Hashbaddanah, Zechariah, and Meshullam.
So Ezra opened the book. All the people could see him because he was standing above them on the high stage. As he opened the Book of the Law, all the people stood up. Ezra praised the Lord, the great God, and all the people held up their hands and said, “Amen! Amen!” Then all the people bowed down and put their faces low to the ground and they worshiped the Lord.

Archaeology says Jerusalem remained in Ruins till early 2nd century- entire Ezra -Nehemiah story are TALES- BUT When they were composed is the actual time. 

//In the years, 539 – 333 BCE, the Persian empire was dominant and it was in this period that Judaism consolidated as a religion based on the Bible.
Authoritative tradition which appears to suggest that Ezra, a priest and scribe from Babylon was an agent of Persian Government in establishing the Torah as the nation law of Judeans in Judea and Syria. He was either a contemporary of Nehemiah in the mid 5th Century BCE or lived a century later ..  Nothing outside the Bilbe adds anything of Historical value to the Picture of Moses.// Lions Hand book of Religions ; page- 280
Many laws in the Pentateuch or Torah, the first five books were not different from those of the surrounding nations. “ page- 238, Vol.3, Grolier’s Encyclopedia.
“Although there was no canonization of a complete tradition text until late 2nd century CE, no change was made in the basic structure of the Pentateuch and Historical books after the 3rd or 2nd Century BCE” . Pictorial Biblical Encyclopedia; Page -173.
//”The OT Genealogies are mostly the work of the Pentateuchal Priestly writer in the Persian Period from 6th to 4th Century BCE. .. Some such as Genesis Chapters 4-5 have parellels in Babylonian Literature”.// New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol-6, Page 319

As per 2 Maccabees 6:1 there was a TEMPLE for "god of Israel - lord yahweh" in Mt.Gerzim.

2 Maccabees 6:1 Not long after this, the king sent an Athenia  senator to compel the Jews to forsake the laws of their fathers and cease to live by the laws of God, and also to pollute the temple in Jerusalem and call it the temple of Olympian Zeus, and to call the one in Geri′zim the temple of Appollos Zeus the Friend of Strangers....

2 Maccabees confirms that ENTIRE BIBLE WE HAVE -that  "god of Israel - lord yahweh" can be worshipped as per Moses are all belong to FIRST CENTURY BCE.

2 Maccabees 2:7 When Jeremiah learned of it, he rebuked them and declared: “The place shall be unknown until God gathers his people together again and shows his mercy. And then the Lord will disclose these things, and the glory of the Lord and the cloud will appear, as they were shown in the case of Moses, and as Solomon asked that the place should be specially consecrated.” It was also made clear that being possessed of wisdom Solomon[a]offered sacrifice for the dedication and completion of the temple. 10 Just as Moses prayed to the Lord, and fire came down from heaven and devoured the sacrifices, so also Solomon prayed, and the fire came down and consumed the whole burnt offerings. 11 And Moses said, “They were consumed because the sin offering had not been eaten.”  12 Likewise Solomon also kept the eight days. 13 The same things are reported in the records and in the memoirs of Nehemi′ah, and also that he founded a library and collected the books about the kings and prophets, and the writings of David, and letters of kings about votive offerings. 14 In the same way Judas also collected all the books that had been lost on account of the war which had come upon us, and they are in our possession. 15 So if you have need of them, send people to get them for you. 16 Since, therefore, we are about to celebrate the purification, we write to you. Will you therefore please keep the days? 

JESUS Believed Tales of Moses giving Law

 Mark 10:3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” But Jesus said to them, “For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’     

RED SEA TALES :  New Catholic Encyclopedia Vol-5 page-745 “Mention of the Red Sea in the Exodus context is a misnomer to be attributed to early Septuaginal editor. One has to glance at any map to see the complete lack of relevance the Red sea has to the entire narrative of Exodus. The Hebrew term Yamsup signifies Reed sea. ” New Catholic Encyclopedia Vol-5 page-745
