Quote from: Cassia on December 28, 2022, 02:58:50 PMThis makes a fun topic for an atheist to bring up when eating dinner with christian friends. Religions continuously evolve. For the Canaanites and the ancient Levantine region as a whole including the earliest Hebrews, ʼĒl or ʼIl was the supreme god, the father of mankind and all creatures. El being the father of all the gods means Yahweh was one of his children. Deuteronomy 32:8–9 explains how El Elyon ('Most high God') divided the nations among the seventy children of El, with Yahweh receiving his share.
