I’ve read a lot on Judaism lately and noticed that many rabbis and Jewish historians consider the majority of the Torah to be metaphorical, teaching morality. If this is true, and it was written over multiple years by men, what is the belief in god based on? Why is this not simply considered a philosophical book? Thanks in advance and feel free to message me to discuss in detail.
