This collection of essays is the second of two volumes comprising articles on the Bible, Ugaritic writings, and other texts. While the first volume is devoted to purely biblical themes, this volume includes comparative studies in which biblical subjects are examined in the light of Eastern literature (particularly Ugaritic) and articles on Ugaritic and other texts. This volume also contains the index to both volumes.
In the Logos edition of Biblical and Oriental Studies, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, make this important work more available than ever for Hebrew study.
