The first eleven chapters of Genesis possess a ________________ and ____________ emphasis. Universal, Cosmic 2. With the introduction of Abraham, Moses begins to ___________________ redemptive history. Particularize 3. How has archaeology verified the historicity of chapters 12–14 in Genesis? The most impressive evidence for the earlier date of the patriarchal period is archaelological. The settlement patterns discovered by Gluech in Transjordan indicate that the events of Genesis 13 occurred somewhere between 2000 and 1900 B.C. Glueck discerned a drastic decrease in the density of occupation between the nineteenth and thirteenth centuries B.C., and he links this decrease with the destructive campaign mentioned in Genesis 14. 4. What are the three possible locations for Ur? Urfa, a city twenty miles northwest of Haran called Edessa by the Greeks. Gordon and others argue for a northern Ur. This is generally identified with Ura, a town northeast of Haran which was under the Hittites control. The more likely and more generally accepted view is that Ur was located in southern Mesopotamia at Tell al-Muqayyar.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
