Biblical Criticism

Section › 13 Set Search Previous Next

Biblical and textual criticism Criticism arises from evaluating merits and faults in some way, and can take many forms. It need not be unpleasant, so fighting is not necessarily involved. One is, rather, engaging with ideas of others, preferably in a polite enough way to keep the goings civilised.

"The God of Israel, YHWH, had a female consort."

"What archaeologists have learned from their excavations in the Land of Israel: the Israelites were never in Egypt, did not wander in the desert, did not conquer the land in a military campaign and did not pass it on to the 12 tribes of Israel. [And] the united monarchy of David and Solomon, which is described by the Bible as a regional power, was at most a small tribal kingdom. And . . . the God of Israel, YHWH, had a female consort and . . . the early Israelite religion adopted monotheism only in the waning period of the monarchy and not at Mount Sinai." - University archaeologist Ze'ev Herzog
