On the History and Orientation of Jews


According to Sigmund Freud, in his book “Moses and Monotheism”, Moses was killed by Jews who rebelled against him. The religion, Judaism, was thus born, out of the grief and guilt felt by the group of Jews responsible for his murder.

Freud explains that years after the murder of Moses, the rebels regretted their action thus forming the concept of the Messiah as a hope for the return of Moses as the Saviour of the Israelites. Freud said that the guilt from the murder of Moses is inherited through the generations; this guilt then drives the Jews to religion to make them feel better. (from Wiki)

What does that mean for the Jewish religion and the Jewish people?

If we were to treat mere Monotheism, or the belief in One God, as the only “true” religion, what would that say about all the labels, religions, rules and customs that we observe in the community of so-called believers?
