Other Gods Before Me: Ancient Near Eastern Myths and the Evolution of the God of Israel

Wrathful gods, passionate yet vengeful goddesses and divinities of mercy and death dominated religious life in the ancient Near East for thousands of years before evolving into the One God of Israel. In this course, you will meet these divine predecessors where they originated in Mesopotamia and the Levant and discover how they were adapted, transformed, inverted and subsumed into Israel’s One God.
