Who is Like You Among the Gods?:Understanding Biblical PolytheismMonday, April 3 at 7:00pmSpeaker: Julia Galambush, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the College of William & MaryAbraham was the first monotheist, right? Except that there's no evidence of that in the Bible. Maybe Moses, then? Not necessarily. The biblical authors did ultimately come to believe in only one God, of course, but it took them a long time to get there. Many biblical texts — like the Mi Chamocha ("Who is like you among the gods?”), for example -- reflect authors who still believed in the existence of multiple gods. Who were these gods, what was their place in Israelite religion, and when did the Israelites give them the boot? This talk will examine the polytheism you did not know was in the Bible — not the idolatry the authors condemned, but the polytheism of the authors themselves and the cultures in which they lived.There is no cost for this program, but please make a reservation by contacting the Temple office at: 301-942-2000 or email@example.com.
