Overview

In 1989, David Tsumura published The Earth and the Waters in Genesis 1 and 2: A Linguistic Evaluation. Tsumura demonstrated that the oft-recited claim that the early chapters of Genesis betrayed adaptation by Israel of mythological terms and/or motifs from other ancient Near Eastern literature could not be supported by a close examination of the linguistic data. Despite the book’s positive reception, the notion that the Chaoskampf motif lies behind the early chapters of Genesis continues to be rehearsed in the literature, as if the data were incontrovertible.
