Children in Ancient Israel

The Hebrew Bible and Mesopotamia in Comparative Perspective

Shawn W. Flynn

  • Provides information to childhood studies within Hebrew Bible not yet used by the emerging discussions
  • Offers a testing ground for the question of how children were valued, through multiple texts and data sets
  • Provides another way that YHWHism was promoted in ancient Israel, through domestic cults, not only through the urban cult
