Ancient Israel’s Cosmology

‘Proper interpretation of the Bible requires an understanding of the original context in which it was written. This is particularly true for the ot. God chose a specific time, place, and culture in which to inspire faithful persons to produce what we read in the ot: the ancient Mediterranean and the ancient Near East of the second and first centuries bc. Understanding their worldview leads to more faithful understandings on our part, as misreadings result from assuming the biblical writers thought, believed, and acted as we do.’
