Like the Canaanite Asherah of the Bronze Age, the Asherah of the Iron Age -the archeological period when Israel emerged- was connected with trees, snakes, fertility, and sexual rites. Israelites worshiped her, apparently alongside Yehova (Yahweh, Jehova). In this obscure biblical passage, there is a child being saved from a violent YHWH, an operation involving a penis, and wings, worn by a female rescuer.

The Parthenon was perfect. It was the most beautiful building in the ancient world. It was the chief temple of the Acropolis, the temple complex of Athens.

Religious leaders have conflated several deities into one, and the gods of today preserve attributes of those conceived by our ancestors. While numerous figurines of Asherah have been excavated throughout sites in Israel dating to Iron I (c. 1100-950 BCE), Iron II (c. 950-720 BCE), and the Assyrian Period/Egyptian periods (c. 720-586 BCE), textual artifacts, seen directly in the words of the Torah, Neviim, and Ketuviim (Tanach, Hebrew Bible) can be just as revealing.

Dura Europos is the site in Syria where a 3rd century C.E. synagogue was excavated during the 1930s. Very noticeable at this Roman-era synagogue is a mural depicting Moses floating in the Nile River, protected by a naked goddess who is accompanied by three demigoddesses.

Approaches to the scholarship of the text of the Tanach in relation to Judaism can range from the rabbinic approach, through somewhat of an apologist approach, to full-fledged biblical criticism.

Although, traditionally, authorship of the Torah, is ascribed to Moses, and the various books of the prophets (NeviÂ’im) to the prophets themselves or in some cases to scribes working directly with them, the Genesis-Kings core of the Hebrew Bible does not actually make a point as to who wrote its parts.

The Mayas once inhabited the jungle-covered peninsula at the tip of the southern part of Mexico that curls like a tail. They were a cultured people, and as clever and industrious as the ancient Greeks and Romans. Their civilization lasted for centuries, and they built a number of magnificent cities. One of them, Chichen Itza, was founded about 400 A.D. and became the holy place for the Mayas.
