Unlike the official ratio between Christianity and Mosaism, where Christianity is considered the offspring of Mosaism, I reconsider this position based on facts and prophecies told in Bible which prove that OT has to be distinguished in two separate realities: the genuine ‘voice of God’ expressed in prophecies and Decalogue, and the religiousness of Jewish people affected by the Egyptian exodus, by time, social context, ego and nationalism, religious background inherited from Mesopotamia and Egypt, and so forth. The context of Mosaic’s birth created the confusion that all what is written in Old Testament is the will of God, including crimes/violence, and that has led to many denials of the Old Testament, in spite of the strong relation between Old and New Testament. By separating the realities of Christ/Apostles and Prophets from the religion of Israel found in Bible, I hope to prove that, from the beginning, Yahweh separates His prophets from the people of Israel/priests for their stubbornness in listening Him, with the claim that Mosaism grew apart from Prophetism.
