± Century 13 BC, Moses The Prophet
Ahmad Saleh 1:07 AM religion
Maybe once, no man in history who was so widely admired as well as Moses, the prophet of the Jews. More than that, in addition to fame, as well as a number of followers who worship him must continue to increase throughout the period. Moses estimated fame in the 13th century BC, around the same time of Ramses II, and was considered a massive displacement of the leadership of the Israelites from Egypt, died in 1237 BC. Moses lived in the past-such as described in the book there is a group Exodus-- Jews who oppose it. However, no less than five centuries glorified Moses by the Jews. Approaching the year 400 BC the fame and reputation spread throughout Europe coincided with Christianity. Several centuries later Muhammad acknowledged Moses as a true prophet, and with the development of Islam, Moses became also admired figure throughout the Islamic world (including Egypt). Now, after thirty-two centuries starting from the time of his life, Moses, revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims as well, and even by people who do not believe in God. Thanks to advances in communications, he is probably more famous now than in the past.
In addition to his fame, believable information concerning the life of Moses is not much. There's even speculation (though not accepted by most scientists) that Moses was actually an Egyptian, because his name smells Egypt and Gentile. (The name Moses means "child" or "boy," and is widely used as part of many pharaohs. Contains the Old Testament stories of Moses, who almost did not much meaning since a lot crammed with all-round miracle. Tales of Moses can disastrous, Moses could turn into a snake aides, are examples of events outside the natural norm.
These kinds of things to burden people with the impossibility that paved the way for people to believe what Moses had already eighty years old at the time berkesanggupan do the exodus, led the Jews through the desert in a period of no less than forty years. Actually, we want to know exactly what did Moses have successfully done before the stories buried in the bushes world of fairy tales.
Many people who wish to make a reasonable interpretation of the treasures of the Gospel story, for example, about ten testament prohibition, on the crossing of the Red Sea. However, the most favored of the stories of the Old Testament concerning the life of Moses is a fairy-tale that can be equated with the mythological stories. The story of Moses on the vines to the top of never-ending story is very similar to Babylonia, and Akkad Sargon, the great king who reigned circa 2360-2305 BC.
In general, there are three major outcomes associated with the deeds of Moses. First, he is considered a political figure who led the Jews to do a massive displacement of Egypt. In this case, it is clear that he deserved the award. Secondly, he succeeded as the author of the first volume of the Five Gospel Volume (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy), which is often associated with the "five books of Moses" and set the Jewish Torah. This book includes Moses Code, a set of laws which the behavior of the Jews in the Gospels, including the "Ten Commandments of the Sacred" (Ten Commandments). From the point of Torah and in particular the influence of the Ten Commandments general, the authors no doubt that can be classified as a great man who had a lasting influence. However, most scholars agree that the Gospel of Moses is not the only author of the book. The book was apparently written by several authors and most of them are not written before the death of Moses. There is a possibility Moses played some role in terms of raising Jewish custom or even outline the Jewish laws, but there is no definite evidence of the extent and for what role he does.
Then, many people consider Moses as the founder of Jewish monotheism. It seemed that there was no compelling reason to support that notion. The only source of our information about the particulars of Moses is the Old Testament, and the Old Testament is clearly and no doubt related to Abraham the founder of monotheism. Even so, it is true also of Jewish monotheism could not not disappear without Moses and no longer need to question Moses holds a decisive role in maintaining and spreading. In this case, of course, lies the importance of the role of the largest religion after Christianity and Islam, the two largest religions in the world that is both rooted in monotheism. The idea of the existence of the One God, who wholeheartedly believed Moses, which eventually spread to most of the world.
