The Encyclopedia of Ancient History is the only comprehensive collection of twenty-first century scholarship available on the entire ancient Mediterranean world, with over 5, original entries published since November Ancient Near East () Biographies of Classical Scholars (17) Bronze and Iron Age () Byzantium () Christianity (). Rather, my point is that the writer of Genesis 1, far from being just passively “influenced” by other ancient Near Eastern literatures (as is often assumed in biblical scholarship), was consciously aware of the motifs found in these alternate accounts of origins, and made deliberate use of them in crafting the biblical creation story.
Greek mythology, body of stories concerning the gods, heroes, and rituals of the ancient Greeks. That the myths contained a considerable element of fiction was recognized by the more critical Greeks, such as the philosopher Plato in the 5th–4th century bce. CIVILIZATIONS OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST presents this enormously rich world from a variety of perspectives. It describes the physical world of the ancient Near East, evaulates the impact of ancient near eastern civilizations on succeeding cultures, and reconstructs its cultural contexts based on archaeological findings and the deciphering of documents.5/5(1).
Egypt: Our look at the powers surrounding and influencing ancient Israelite history at various times begins with Egypt, because it is the memory of the exodus of the Hebrews from slavery to Pharao in Egypt that constitutes the founding myth of the nation.(Cf. Deuteronomy and elsewhere). As ancient and sophisticated as, but quite distinct from, the culture of the Sumerians in. Explores the diverse origins of such stories as the creation and the flood in the cultures of the ancient Near East.

It is a well-written, intelligent, up-to-date survey that provides students with an excellent background while at the same time holding their interest."/5(56). The last section of the book is actually the largest section and it touches on the psychological process of the people of the ancient New East.
It proves that they had the capability of understanding other people and were not just stuck in their own worlds. Skeptics of Christianity have long viewed the creation and flood stories in Genesis as being borrowed from earlier stories from the ancient Near East (ANE) because there are numerous similarities between the ANE and Genesis stories.
The Hittite documents also required the vassal to read its text. Understanding ancient Near Eastern treaties illuminates many passages in the Bible. The most striking example is the book of Deuteronomy, which shows features of both the Hittite and Neo-Assyrian texts.
Introduction. The book of Proverbs, together with Job and Ecclesiastes fall under the broad category of wisdom literature, a genre common in the Ancient Near East; wisdom literature consists of instructions for successful living or contemplations on the perplexities of human existence.
By its nature, therefore, wisdom literature is intensely practical. In his book The Waters Above: Earth's Pre-Flood Vapor Canopy, Joseph C. Dillow discusses at great length the possibility that the biblical view presented in the preceding section (with some exceptions of course) was indeed a fact before Noah's Flood.
Although Dillow rejects the hermeneutical excesses of the detailed inerrantists, he still remains squarely within this view.

I bought this book along with its companion: Volume II - A New Anthology of Texts and Pictures, because it was time for me to see for myself what the the original sources had to say about the Ancient Near volume, which first was published in contains over 70 ancient texts and about black and white photographs of artefacts from the Ancient Near East.5/5(5).

The knowledge many people have of the Ancient Near East comes either from a high school history course, their World History 1 class in college, or (for some) the Bible; and much of this information is quite limited in its breadth and depth.
Despite its title this book is really about ancient Mesopotamia, rather than the ancient Near East as a whole, and covers the period before the conquest by the Persians. There is much emphasis on what can be gleaned from the extensive surviving cuneiform records, with frequent quotations, and this makes for some fascinating reading/5.
Marc Van De Mieroop’s A History of the Ancient Near East is a superb book for students and general readers alike. Its crisp, clear narrative keeps the material lively while covering all of the important points.
The third edition improves on a second edition that. With more than reading selections and photographs of ancient art, architecture, and artifacts, this volume provides a stimulating introduction to some of the most significant and widely studied texts of the ancient Near East, including the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Creation Epic (Enuma elish), the Code of Hammurabi, and the Baal Cycle.
This book is interesting but on the surface it appears to be simply a book about the history of the ancient near east, which in my mind covers the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Persian and Assyrian civilizations prior to the Christian era/5(4).Book Review of A History of the Ancient Near East (BC) - Books like this excite me from page one because I just know it’s going to ignite a plethora of.
