As the title of this thesis indicates, the problem we wish to explore is the apparent similarities between the Code of Hammurabi and the Mosaic Law. We want to explore both bodies of law and take note of the apparent similarities, and then try to account for them. In the search for a better understanding of the similarities, we shall not limit ourselves to the texts of the two codes but we shall also consider the historical background, cultures, and personalities responsible for them.
