The Language of Genesis


"Despite the common tendency to read Genesis as derived from Babylonian myths or epics, scholarship has now solidly rejected this position. Firstly, if Moses is accepted as the author (somewhere between the 15th–13th century, depending upon your dating method), then it simply makes no sense to read Genesis as a polemic against Babylon, because Babylon only came to prominence as an empire after the 9th century BC.  It is worth reemphasizing that Moses was writing in an Egyptian (or at least, wilderness) context, as mentioned earlier, and not a Babylonian one.  He was therefore hardly likely to write a polemic against a nation that posed no political or theological threat. Secondly, the linguistic evidence has conclusively shown that Genesis does not reveal any demythologizing."

Aw, this was a very nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a really
good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a
whole lot and don't seem to get nearly anything done.
