Welcome to the Earthly Covenant!

Historical essay

The Covenant on the Origin of the Abrahamic Faith, by Means of Deificationnt is the result of an  investigation that began fifteen years ago and that has led me to a remarkable journey. It explores how taking an earthly perspective on the Abrahamic Covenant can dramatically affect our understanding of the biblical history, and how such a viewpoint might hold the key to unlocking our collective future.

By adopting the perspective of a secular covenant with a powerful Lord instead of a religious experience with the divine, this book makes a solid case for a euhemeristic origin of this foundational episode of monotheism. It argues that by adopting such a viewpoint, it becomes not only possible to challenge existing conclusions, but also to offer a whole new understanding of the history of Israel that helps us better understand its evolution.

This journey has brought me to realize that dogmas, not religions, are poisoning the world and that our ego is the only true evil. Religions are just by-products of this universal message that has been expressed by shamans, sages, prophets and humanists in different ways over the ages.

By demythifying the origin of monotheism, I trust that believers will find the confidence and strength they need to let go of a narrowing form and that non-believers will gain appreciation for the underlying message. This step is essential to co-create a world of fraternal love, where theists and atheists can acknowledge all facets of their humanity, and can move together to embrace a more open, secular and inclusive form of spirituality.

THE NON-FICTION COMIC

This non-fiction comic tells the Bronze Age tale of war, oppression, loyalty, inheritance, sex, and child sacrifice that gave rise to the God of the Bible. Could the man alleged to have been the “founding father of the faith” turns out to have been an atheist, and his “God,” a Mesopotamian ruler?

THE HISTORICAL ESSAY

This historical essay takes readers back to the Bronze Age, some 3,500 years ago, at a time when men of power were viewed as living gods. Using sociology, anthropology and etymology, it asks pertinent questions and dissects the biblical Covenant to explore an innovative and thought provoking interpretation that exposes this story like never before.

What people say ?

Attention, atheist rationalists: Adding to the array of great books by Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens, a new book takes a devastating stance on the entire notion of God’s covenant with Abraham, underlying Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Bernard Lamborelle (@blambore)’s “The Covenant: On the Origins of the Abrahamic Faith by Means of Deification” presents strong evidence (historical, archaeological, even scriptural) that the covenant was REAL–but it was between two men, not God and a man. I have no proprietary interest in this book, but I recommend it very strongly because I find the idea highly credible and immensely significant. Please see my review on Amazon.
Bernard Lamborelle has made an outstanding contribution to this process by demonstrating how one can­ establish a historical connection between the central pillar of the most significant myths that have influenced the Western world, the God of Abraham and very real characters that have allowed the emergence of these mythologies. Thank you Bernard Lamborelle. Thank you from my heart for the hope that this work really brings …
I try to read everything on the topic that I can get my hands onto ever since I read the Old Testament. I only have one thing to say: READ IT! The book is well written, clear, well organized. The theses are documented and overlap each other as if the author had found the Adriane’s’ ball of thread that is the labyrinth of the Old Testament. It’s written without pretensions, but it is clear that this is the most credible interpretation of the Bible that I was given to read to date. In the end, it is as if the Bible “felt back on his feet.” This theory, which anchors the biblical texts to specific historical time is a great starting point for future research that can tell us how relevant it is. … This investigation blew me away; I did not expect this much. ”
