The Origins of the God of Israel
Thursday, March 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
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.
