Dear Students,I am happy to invite you to the forth lesson of the course The Bible in Light of the Ancient Near East. This week's lesson deals with the theological and ideological implications of our comparative discussion thus far. The lesson is now available on your edX dashboard.I would like to thank those who contributed to the forum assignment of lesson 3, and shared with us their impressions from reading Sumerian mythology.Recommended preliminary reading for this lesson includes read the following biblical passages:Exodus 15:11; Judges 11:24; 1 Samuel 26:19; Jeremiah 16:19-20; Micah 4:5; Psalms 29:1; Psalms 74:13–17 .When reading, try to focus on the way the biblical god, and his relationship with foreign gods, are depicted in these passages. As usual, the links lead to King James Version, but you may use any translation and/ or commentary.Good luck,Dr. Nili Samet
