The Origins of the God of Israel

Thursday, March 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Aleksander Krogevoll, Instructor, University of St. Michael’s College

It is difficult to conduct any study on the origin of Yahwism, as the evidence for YHWH’s origins remain limited. However, the absence of YHWH in the West-Semitic group of gods has led scholars to look for the deity’s origins south of Israel. This presentation will offer an overview of the Midianite-Kenite hypothesis and explore why it has become the leading hypothesis for YHWH’s origins.
