It is not true that Avraham and Moshe brought to the world the ideas of morality and the value of life. These ideas were known to Adam and Noach – only that, over time, humanity had almost forgotten about them.What these giants brought to the world was an even higher idea. That the values essential to humanity’s survival can only endure when seen as the result of monotheism. They must be linked to a higher reality, and that reality consists in the knowledge of the Unit that makes us exist.
