YHWH is King: The Development of Divine Kingship in Ancient Israel

Front Cover
BRILL, Nov 15, 2013 - Religion - 224 pages
Using the methodology of cultural translation, Flynn studies change in YHWH’s kingship and situates that change in the Neo-Assyrian period. Judahite scribes changed the theology of YHWH’s kingship, from warrior king to creator king, likely in reference to Marduk’s kingship in Babylon.
