The common narrative of Moses is one that outlines the extraordinary life of the Old Testament prophet. The chronology of Exodus demonstrates his unwavering faith and commitment to God. But do the pages of the biblical account of this character present truth, or has this story been crafted in an effort to hide the truth from modern readers? In this week's episode, Andrew and CK connect with Rand Flem-Ath to discuss his recent book, The Murder of Moses. Rand spent over a decade researching what is potentially lurking behind the curtain of this Old Testament narrative and this effort expands the research completed by Goethe, Christopher Marlowe, and Sigmund Freud. This episode explores all things Moses, how he was murdered by his father-in-law, Reuel, how Reuel assumes the identity of Moses, and how the scribes of Exodus edited the story to fit a specific agenda. Bring your ham horn; this one gets gnarly.
