Chronology Exodus ca 1300 BCE Leadership of Moses The Covenant between Israel and Yahweh, the God of the Tabernacle Journey Through the Sinai. This was the only thing that bond the people, this is how the nation was founded. Law of Moses includes prohibitions of “necromancy” and “necrolatry” The god of Israel is not the gods of the other religion Relationship Between God and People Ancient Israel- Yahweh → Convenant ← Israel Other Ancient Relgions- Gods → Nature, Land, and Blood Lineage ← People The mosiac prohibition of death cult- “If any turn to medians and wizzards, prostituting themselves o themselves, I will set my face against them, and will them off from the people. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am the Lord your God” (Leviticus 20:6-7) the cult talk to the death for people. IF you go out of the group, you will die. They wanted to get out of the ancient Pagan beliefs and henotheoism, one god out of many. They didn't want them to look back and wanted them to face the future since they have the moral decision to make up their own decisions to unify the nation with this single belief. Moses was trying to mold a nation. They were moving so they buried the death and moved on. They moved on. They didn't want to see the past. The Oldest Israelite Understanding of Death and Afterlife “She'ol” - the land of no return- this is no hell or heaven almost like in mesopatamian “Raphain”- the ghost like “shade”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
