Instructor: Rob Vanhoff

Description:
Was “Baal” a real “elohim”? Is he still? What are we to do with stories of the ba’alim and other so-called deities from the Bible and Ancient Near East? Doesn’t Canaanite and other extra-biblical literature influence how we read the Bible? This presentation will seek to provide disciples of Yeshua the Biblically sound framework for addressing these questions.

– The Hebrew term בעל (baal)
– The Torah and Ancient Canaanite Poetry and Myth
– Baal and the Hebrew Prophets
– Portrayals of Baal in the Second Temple Period and Beyond
– Paul’s view of Idolatry and the “gods” and “demons” of Nations
