h. Teraphim are perhaps ancestor figurines which use at home and in public cult for divination, specifically, for consulting the dead C. Judahite (and Israelite) burial types during Iron Age a. Located in tell slopes and wadi cliffs in highlands of Palestine b. Two related types: b.i. Cave burial b.ii. Bench burial – main Judahite type from late 8 th century c. Tombs are assured to have accommodated family burials. Remains of corpses were removed to D. Opposition to cult a. Prohibitions against consulting the dead through intermediaries b. Feeding the dead tithed food c. Is 8:19 supports the above agenda by warning people to rely on Yahweh rather than the dead E. The reforms of Hez and Jos involved suppressing some of this. F. The deadh cult lefislation also was to economic advantage of the jeru temple cult. Legit priests in Jeru wer guaranteed their livelihood and rithed food was no longer diverted to the dead G. Power of dead was denied. People could still feed the dead, but not tithed food. They could still consutl the dead, just not with professional help. The cult of the dead thus continued own to the fall of Jeru in 586. Necromancers can consult the dead to find out the future: furthermore, no disapproval of that practice. Yet prophet says ‘my preaching trumps anything that necre says.’ Arch evidence confirms there was an afterlife. And living family members have to provide nourishment for them. A lot of biblical writers did not approve of the cult of the dead.

    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.
