gods of the Bible (new interview with Dr. Heiser)

The Divine Council: "THE OLD Testament is a record of rebellion. Fallen angels, placed over the nations by God after the Tower of Babel incident, led the peoples under their control in a war of extermination against the one nation reserved by Yahweh for Himself.

In other words, Baal, Asherah, Molech, Chemosh, Dagon, and the other gods who bedeviled the ancient Hebrews weren’t simply constructs of wood and stone; they were real. They still are.

Dr. Michael S. Heiser, scholar of the Bible and Ancient Near Eastern languages and history, shares the biblical evidence for the Divine Council paradigm and explains why it matters to Christians today."

Divine Council Power Point

God (elohim) stands in the divine council;
in the midst of the gods (elohim) he passes judgment.
Psalm 82:1

An understanding of the dual power concept of divinity as it historically existed in ancient Israel clarifies that Christians did not create the concept to support the divinity of Jesus. It also clarifies many Biblical passages and concepts. You will arrive at the same theological position as standard Christianity but you will understand more clearly why you have arrived.
