ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the nature of Christianity and Judaism as religions established out of flesh. It correlates both religions with the process of giving birth which involves strains, spasm, screams, sweat and tensions. It describes the difference between Christianity and Judaism wherein Christianity goes beyond Judaism in its blasphemy, incarnating even Jahweh in sexed flesh. It explains the reason behind the inclination of Christianity and Judaism to favor paternal images rather than maternal. It criticizes the feminist emphasis on the equality between men and women.
