The Moses Play and Monotheism in Ancient Israel

Sf Sofort lieferbar | Versandkostenfrei
Modern scholarship shows a startling fact - that belief in one God originated with Moses and became the basis of the Jewish Bible and the Old Testament in a ritual drama, The Play of Moses, first created by Joshua as the Israelites crossed the Jordan and performed it at Schechem. This play was altered over time into The Play of David. Remnants of this ritual drama are to be found in The Book of J, written hundreds of years later - after the time of Solomon - and it was severely suppressed by priests returning from the Exile hundreds of years after that. The Play of Moses is the hidden basis of the modern Jewish and Christian religions.
