People imagine we believe that Abraham and Moses gave the world the ideas of morality and value of life.

It is not true. These ideas were known to Adam and to Noah. It is just that, with time, humankind had mostly forgotten them.

What these giants brought to the world was a greater idea: That the values essential to humanity’s survival can endure only when they have a larger context: when we understand ourselves as created beings engaged by the Master of this Universe to take care of His world.
