Well John Titor (time traveler from Art Ball’s show) did say that our whole notion of God changed when The Ark of the Covenant was found in Ethiopia

The Old Testament is basically an account of how Israel went off the rails over and over again. So it's not surprising that they find archaeological evidence of Israel's idolatry.

Bad Media again. They do not seem to read scripture.

In 1 Kings chapter 18, Elijah slew 450 prophets of Baal.

This does not disprove but rather offers some proof to the accounts of the Bible.

So like no other people lived in that area the same time Jews did? No other cultures? And the OT was not "started to be written" as though it is one book. I love these moronic "experts" -

She describes herself as "an atheist with huge respect for religion" and regards her work as "a branch of history like any other"

Now experts are increasingly suggesting that far from there being “one God”, there were many.

Are these people totally ignorant of history?

So, since they worshipped Baal, Molech, and Astoreth, I guess we can assume their existence is a fact, too. /s

Israel was God’s bride - but she proved herself an ungrateful harlot.

Rewriting history is a never ending job.

The next thing you know someone will be finding new rights written in invisible ink in the US Constitution.

Something about “I am who I am” doesn’t sound married.

The kind of analysis one would expect from a complete imbecile!

The worship of Ishtar was big back then.

A recent excavation in Tel Motza, not far from Jerusalem, found what archaeologists believe to have been a ritual building - with clay figures of animals and men from the time of the First Temple, according to Israel's Haaretz news site....Now experts are increasingly suggesting that far from there being “one God”, there were many.

Ping for later

They could have saved themselves a lot of trouble and simply read the Book of Kings.

God has to admit he was having a bad day when he created skunks, mosquitoes, ticks, and eels. But a perfect and infallible being decided a wife would be a good idea?

Has nothing to do with the God of the Bible and everything to do with Baal and his wife.

Anyone who reads the Bible diligently knows that the Canaanite gods, who were a “divine couple”, were not driven form the land until after the return from the Babylonian exile.

If even then.

'Now experts are increasingly suggesting that far from there being “one God”, there were many. '

Duh.

Ya can check out Dr. Heiser's work on the Diving Council for more info.

"[The divine council is] the heavenly host, the pantheon of divine beings who administer the affairs of the cosmos. All ancient Mediterranean cultures had some conception of a divine council. The divine council of Israelite religion, known primarily through the psalms, was distinct in important ways."
