A parable is a parable, no more and no less. In Luke 16 Jesus did not refer
to Moses as being the author of the Torah, so it is impossible from that to
conclude he was. It is important to see what the Bible actually says and not
to force your own opinion on to it. To do that is to twist scripture.

Remember we listen to Jesus through what is said in the Gospels but Jesus
did not write the Gospels.

It's all very simple!
