Stone Age to Christianity

Posted: August 4, 2012 in Uncategorized

The news in 1960 that the Jews were unlike their neighbors, and that this set them apart culturally and ideologically was the grounds for Albright’s book, the marked departure of Old Testament beliefs demonstrated  from anything that had existed in the world before. This in itself would be interesting because anomalous. It hardly seemed novel until one realized that in the nineteenth century scholars preoccupied with showing how many like polytheists  the monotheists were. The purpose was to disestablish the special revelation of Israel, Moses, Genesis and Jesus. A second critique now occurs for the paganism that was so utterly defeated, since it has resurged and in many permutations is stronger than ever, just in time for the whole world system to be judged. Psalm 2 is coming.
