When looking at the history of the People of Israel described in the Torah, additional anomalies arise compared to the stories of other peoples. The children of Israel are described as a people of slaves who came out of Egypt. What nation would want to invent for itself such a dubious lineage, at a time when slaves were perceived by many as a type of degraded, subhuman being?
The Torah (the first holiest book of the Bible) also lists time and time again the sins and failures of the children of Israel, including those of the great ones, such as Moses himself and the man known as the father of the priests, Aaron. This is also in contrast to other peoples, who have always endeavored to glorify their successes, to conceal their failures, and to glorify the great men of their nation to divine dimensions.
The Torah, on the other hand, seems almost like an antisemitic composition from most of its criticism of the People of Israel and their sins: the People of Israel are not portrayed as the heroes of Biblical stories, but instead are shown as villains! Why would any nation want to invent or adopt for itself such unflattering stories, if it were not known to everyone that this is indeed the truth?
Why present Moses, Aaron, and Joshua in a critical light and point out their sins, if the purpose of the writers of the Torah is only to convince the people to accept their authority?
The critical nature of the Torah towards the People of Israel is therefore also evidence of its truth since no nation would have invented for itself such a negative and unflattering history. This does not seem to be a common myth.
