Moses or Dionysus?

Did Moses Exist? front coverIn case you missed the release of my latest book, Did Moses Exist? The Myth of the Israelite Lawgiver, here’s some info. My book is comprehensive, covering every major and many minor aspects of the story of Moses and the Exodus. In Did Moses Exist? I demonstrate scientifically that the lawgiver and Exodus tales are not historical. Next, I examine the myths that these fictional elements are based upon and how they came to be. You will not find this information in any other single source.

My research includes primary sources in the following languages:

Akkadian, Arabic, Assyrian, Babylonian, Canaanite, Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, Phoenician, Sanskrit, Sumerian, Ugaritic, Vedic and others.

The Table of Contents is extensive and can be seen at the book’s webpage.

The Dionysus Connection

One of the figures that the mythical Moses evidently was founded upon was the Greek god Dionysus. This comparison of the Hebrew and Greek lawgivers was noticed in antiquity and extended into the modern ages by many scholars and writers.

Moses or Dionysus?The attributes in this image are cited carefully from ancient primary sources, found on pages 331 to 335 in Did Moses Exist? These citations include Homeric Hymn 1 to Dionysus, Pausanias, Diodorus, Homer, Artapanus, Euripides, Macrobius, Seneca, Nonnus, Horace and Ovid.

  1. Hey Stellar House
    I was wondering if you are familiar the concept of Moses being based on King Tut or better yet Thutmose II. There’s a publication floating around which says biblical Moses was actually the Egyptian (Kemetic) Pharaoh Thutmose II. Did you go into that at all in Did Moses Exist? Whether you have or haven’t I wanted to know what you think about the above hypothesis? I haven’t purchased a copy of DID MOSES EXIST? as of yet I do plan to purchase it along with the study guide. In the mean time I just wanted to know your take on the above hypothesis considering you advocate Moses of the bible is based on Dionysis?

    1. Thanks. Yes, of course, I address that subject, as well as the Akhenaten comparison, which has more validity but which is also erroneous. The Thutmose II comparison was made by Leonard Möller, and I addressed his book pretty thoroughly here:

  2. Hey what do you or anyone for that matter think about The Nephilim which is mentioned a few times in the old testament like Genesis? Why would someone mention these Giants if weren’t real? I mean yes the stories are bizarre I’m just curious on the details of certain things.

    1. As I relate in my book Did Moses Exist?, although some of the taller local tribes have been lighted upon in order to bring realism to the story, the Exodus “giants” or nephilim tale represents not “history” but an astral or astrotheological motif.

      In Aramaic, the word nephila refers to the constellation of Orion, the giant hunter in the sky who plays an important role in Egyptian religion, among many others. Gesenius’s Lexicon cites the “Chaldean” (Akkadian) of this term as נפלא nephla, meaning “the giant in the sky, i.e. the constellation Orion, plur. the greater constellations.”

      In this same regard, in the Bible (Psalm 19:5), the sun is called “giant,” using another Semitic term employed also for Orion, גבור gibbowr (Strong’s H1368). Orion is called “the giant” also in Arabic, as al-jabbar.

      1. Thank you for your feedback. I didn’t know that part but I do zodiac & orions belt if that has any thing to do with it?

      2. A Muslim guy I speak with here & there said this:

        Muslims who murder Christians, such as the ISIS criminals, have lost their Islamic guidance and essentially are no longer in the fold of true belief. What they do is not Islamic in the least. They have, in essence, become like the Catholics of the Inquisition, perhaps even worse. Damned they are!

        As for the Nephilim. Most likely these were tribes of Jinn who preceded humans on earth. Neither alien or human, they are beings from a parallel dimension, many of which (the majority) have become wicked in nature.

        The Catholics in the Vatican worship them and have mistaken them for angels and other messengers of God, but this is the natural consequence of idolatry. They are real and their manifestations are also real. It is most likely that certain of their tribes are responsible for the infamous ‘bloodlines’ that infect the elite of the world with pride and selfishness. This is also natural and is represented by the curse on Cain who failed to repent and then became ruler over ‘Sin” who ‘stood at the door’.
