S02E13 – Rand Flem-Ath

The Murder of Moses

The common narrative of Moses is one that outlines the extraordinary life of the Old Testament prophet. The chronology of Exodus demonstrates his unwavering faith and commitment to God. But do the pages of the biblical account of this character present truth, or has this story been crafted in an effort to hide the truth from modern readers? In this week’s episode, Andrew and CK connect with Rand Flem-Ath to discuss his recent book, The Murder of Moses. Rand spent over a decade researching what is potentially lurking behind the curtain of this Old Testament narrative and this effort expands the research completed by Goethe, Christopher Marlowe, and Sigmund Freud. This episode explores all things Moses, how he was murdered by his father-in-law, Reuel, how Reuel assumes the identity of Moses, and how the scribes of Exodus edited the story to fit a specific agenda. Bring your ham horn; this one gets gnarly.
“Talk about a cold-case murder getting hot new attention! Rand and Rose Flem-Ath bring some first-class detective work to bear on one of the most important, albeit lost, stories of Western civilization, and they come to some shattering conclusions. Long ignored by mainstream academic scholarship, the extraordinary views of the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, on the identity and fate of the Hebrew lawgiver Moses finally get some richly deserved attention. In a dramatic tale of wartime danger and personal hardship suffered by Freud and his family, the Flem-Aths offer a rare glimpse into his little-known quest to track down the details of a sensational and controversial hypothesis that he knew might get him cast out of his own community, if not killed. The result is riveting and the book is a true page-turner.” – J. Douglas Kenyon, Forbidden History, Forbidden Religion, and Forbidden Science
