Cultural derivations of the Mosaic Code
The purpose of this study has been to determine upon what cultural sources the Hebrew lawmakers and prophets drew in their formulation of the Mosaic Code. To validate the choice of cultural sources selected for analysis the study first established the people of Israel as a distinct nation in the configuration of history, tracing its migrations up to that point in its development when it made its first legal covenant with God. In this way was determined the peoples with whom the Israelite nation made contact and with whose cultures they were to a greater or less degree impregnated.
