  2. Dear Professor Dr. Claude Mariottini,
    Thank you for your short but very good written, in-depth articles!
    I am full of admiration for you, looking at what you have achieved and where you were publishing your research results.
    Is it possible that you read and comment on what I have briefly described in the article
    and especially
    which is the result of many years of my intense research and cooperation with the grace of God? The whole of this research is my doctoral dissertation.
    The key information is this: the Book of Exodus 1-18 consists of six pericopes, as tractates did in the ancient Near East about 16th-12th centuries before Christ. It is because the Book of Exodus 1-18 is the tractate of the covenant made by God with Israel during the four-stage Exodus, especially during their passing between the divided waters of the Sea of Reeds, i.e., quasi animal – Rahab (according to the vision of Isa 51:9-10, correctly translated and understood).
    The arrangement of these six pericopes fulfills the requirements bestowed on tractates from about 16th-12th centuries BC. The central four pericopes describe a four-stage ceremony of covenant-making; the outer two serve as an introduction (describing the history of relations of these two partners) and a conclusion (describing the regulations for their relations after the covenant-making day). The most important stage of the celebration – being the means of covenant-making – is the passage of two contracting parties between the halves of animals – cf. Gen 15, especially Gen 15:17-18. The meaning of the custom of such passing between halves of animal is mentioned in Jer 34:18-19. The same meaning has the passage between the halves of the Sea of Reeds – as it was proved on the way of in-depth analyses.

    I have published the translation of whole my doctoral dissertation in parts on the website and also on my website

    Thank you for your scientific effort and for sharing its fruits!
