FINAL QUESTIONS: Compare and contrast Dever and Burn’s understanding of the pillar figurines. 3 short answers, long essay or 4 or 5 short answers. Evaluate scholarly position: o 1. Dever’s interp of Judean figurines: present his argument and conclusion. Evaluate? Look for WEAKNESSES. He claims figurines represent Asherah, they are not labeled Asherah, just looking at them could be a human woman! Whats’ his argument for seeing at a divine figure? Are figurines in basic human context look like gods? Boobs and pubic triangle: well sure. Biblical terminology for images. Taraphim and pessanin and he said those are not the pillar figurines: the biblical writers never refer to Judean pillar figurines: why not? They didn’t know anything about them, but Dever says they knew about them and trying to suppress knowledge about them. That means deut writers don’t like them, they must represent Asherah. o 2. Defend own interpretation of Judean pillar figurines. Have an opinion you can defend. Formulate one yourself and defend it with evidence or logical argument. o 3. Avner’s interpretation: o 4. Cult of dead: o 5. Cook’s article: skip last secion. Titled ‘abandoning kinship for apostacy.’ Skip it! Evidence for features. Biblical text? o 6. Dever sucky article. Dever’s answer to monotheism: basic evolution of Israelite religion. Present that Arch exploration of Palestine and the Near East has been going on for over 200 years. Surveys, excavations, which have yielded an astronomical amount of evidence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
