The three continents from which the Biblical authors wrote where Africa, Asia, and Europe. Moses was born, raised and spent many years of his adult life in Africa. He is the author of the first five books of The Bible, commonly called the Pentateuch. The majority of the biblical authors lived their lives in the Holy Land (i.e. Israel) which of course is situated in west Asia. Paul the Apostle traveled throughout southern Europe on his missionary journeys and wrote many of his letters while in Greece or Italy. So, there you have it; Africa, Asia, and Europe. I hope this is of help.
