What Makes Judaism True?
Rabbi Moshe Ben-Chaim
Reader: The Kuzari writes that a multitude witnessed the Sinai revelation: masses could not be wrong. Judaism, therefore, is a historically-proven religion. However, Christianity also claims mass witnesses of Jesus performing miracles. Constantine and his army saw a cross with the words, "Conquer by this sign!" The Aztecs saw a white eagle land on a cactus eating a snake at Tenochtitlan, and many Native American tribes, ancient Greeks, and African peoples have their legends. One billion Hindus saw their gods drinking milk...far more numbers than 600 thousand. Shouldn’t you be a Hindu? Or how about being a Christian, since Jesus fed 500 people with a few loaves of bread? How do you reconcile this and address the Torah’s unique claim to Sinai Revelation?
Rabbi: Claims of mass witnesses found in a book is not Judaism’s proof. It is circular to prove the book from the book, but it's what all other religions do to promote their fabrications.
Judaism’s proof is the nations’ unanimous verbal transmission tracing back to Sinai’s mass witnesses. There is no alternative Jewish history, as we find with the conflicting Gospels. Revelation equates to the account of masses who witnessed Caesar and Alexander, which too trace back to real events. All history is validated when the event was easily grasped, and when it contains masses. But in all other religions there is no transmission back to events, but only to written fabrications which might claim witnesses; writing a claim cannot create the event. But tell a lie enough, and it becomes fact. The religions’ fabrications—not events—are their origins: there was no event as they claim. Research any other religion, and you will trace back to a date when their story originated, not to any event. And you will also find an alternative history, which is actually their true history, as opposed to the fabrications. You will also find fallacy in their stories. But Torah contains great detail of people’s names, their tribal names, their offspring, their numbers, their journeys and dates.
The 4 conflicting Gospels is an example of how a lie becomes corrupted, yielding conflicting versions based on its lying transmitters. Whereas there is no conflict about the history of Caesar or Alexander the great and other historical truths witnessed by masses, like Revelation at Sinai.
