Faith as proven

Q: If, as you write, “The Jew is required to believe only that which has been proven to be correct.” How can a Jew be required to believe in Rambam’s 13 articles of faith: including Revelation, resurection of the dead, or indeed even an omnipotent, historically-involved, incorporeal and eternal God?

Q: If, as you write elsewhere in this site, “The Jew is required to believe only that which has been proven to be correct- whether that proof be based purely on the intellectual faculties or historical-factual evidence gathered by the senses.” How can a Jew be required to believe in any or all of Rambam’s 13 articles of faith: including Revelation, resurection of the dead, or indeed even an omnipotent, historically-involved, incorporeal and eternal God?

A. The answer is very simple. The basis of the veracity of Judaism is the historical fact of Revelation, which left its imprint on the collective identity of the Hebrew people. Any of the articles of faith derive from this point and not from speculative thinking.
