I've always been thaught the Commandments were a cultural phenomenon: values becoming rules, rules becoming laws. The charismatic figure of Moses - whether he existed now or not - only would have come later into the story. Basically you could see it as a myth (which you can always "decypher" as a kid asking his grandfather "gran, how come we have this or that?"): to explain something a story is woven around it, giving birth to a myth. I see no reason why this would be different for Bible stories. And yeah, they thaught me this in a Catholic school. Confused

some have Christ in the 'Osiris' pose, with crossed arms. .

But i mean how would the thing about Christ come about if it werent true, maybe the people thought they needed a religon so they used parts of the egyptian religon to make their's. Im not putting down Christ OR the most of all God himself because im Baptist/Catholic Embarassed
