Course 1: God’s Original Revelation to Humanity
Video Lesson 3: Fundamentals of Prophecy
Here you will understand the fundamental concept of prophecy as the basis for the divine communication with human beings.
"If someone comes to convince individuals or a community – by influencing, or with intellectual arguments, or by demonstrating supernatural powers or the like, or with false claims to be a prophet to serve idols, or to nullify one of the Seven Noahide Commandments, or to add a commandment, even if he says that God commanded that this should be done, it is forbidden to listen to him or to accept his words."
Discover during this class how to identify true statements from false ones regarding religious and spiritual truth.
This course is for people who come from any religious background. It will first explain God's giving of the Torah to Moses and the Jewish people, which included the Seven Universal Noahide Commandments for all mankind. We will explore the ways that God uplifts mankind and any individual through these Seven Commandments, and the branches of personal and societal morality and ethics that logically branch out from them. To further understand this, the course will introduce the earlier origins of the Noahide Commandments, which can be found in the Book of Genesis. We will examine how they presuppose a belief in the One God from the perspective of Torah. We will also cover the related topic of true prophecy, including the unique and public Divine revelation to Moses during the assembly of the estimated three million Jews who experienced God speaking at Mount Sinai. We will highlight the rationale by which this leads to a faith based on knowledge.
The mission to perfect the world through the Seven Noahide Commandments was entrusted to Non-Jews as well when God gave the Torah. This course will make clear that everyone has the ability to help make God’s purpose and goal for creation a reality. Since Biblical times, a Non-Jew's search to live a life that is objectively moral and good is first and foremost founded upon the Noahide Code.
