Abstract




ABSTRACT: The following study takes a look at the particularity of divine nature of human rights, a hotly debated topic of our days. YHWH through the Law of Moses, o er some sorts of rights for the man created into His Image (Iș 21, 16; Dt 24, 7; Lv 25, 42; 2 Rg 15, 19; 1 Par 29, 15; Ps 94, 5-6; 146, 9; Ir 7, 6; Za 7, 10; Mal 3, 5), in order to emphasize the freedom and dignity of humankind. Human Rights, by it’s divine nature, cannot be actual without bolding the necessity of integrating into a religious and inspired background. e secularism of Human Rights in our days, emerge through a point where it cannot have a global application – the right of rich people, the right of capitalism, violates the dignity of the weak. Overtaking this vicious mode of contextualization the concept of Human Rights, needs to be realised without any delays, an we can do that if we rediscover the roots of Human Rights. e Jews (people of God) succeded to apply it on a global scale, where nobody was discriminated, even strangers and slaves bene t on it. Taking everything into consideration, we can sum up by saying that the only path of transgressing it’s by recognition the importance of the right to sanctity: the moral man it’s the only one who respect the dignity of others by his way of life, this human behavior of sanctity, will never eclipse the freedom and dignity of others. By ignoring this vision, we will face with an end of the contemporary Human Rights, because it’s fallacies.
