Project #85241 - Lesson 2: The Biblical World: Culture and Religion

1. Short Answer Assignment After reading the lecture notes and Chapter 3, explain which concept you think is more likely to reflect the reality of the similarities and differences between Ancient Israelite practices and ideas and those of her neighbors (Babylon, Egypt, Canaan, etc.). Minimum 100 words. 2. Reflection Paper Note throughout Chapter 3 how many times the author of the textbook seems to suggest that some practice or idea in the Hebrew Bible story was "borrowed" from another culture. For example, note at the bottom of page 51 and top of 52 the suggestion that the giving of the Law to the Israelites on Mt. Sinai was copied from the same story in the Babylonian tradition of Hammurabi and the sun God Shamash. List as many of these as you can find. Then, after reading the chapter Lecture Notes, discuss the difference between the idea of "borrowing" and the "conceptual" approach to the similarities and differences between Ancient Israelite ideas and practices and the ideas and practices of her neighbors. Minimum 250 words. Course materials: Harris, S. and Platzner, R., The Old Testament: An Introduction to the Hebrew Bible. 2nd Edition. McGraw Hill. Any modern English translation Bible.
