Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Read Bernal's book, vol 1 - III, especially II-II, because those examine semitic languages' documentary and archeological artifacts relating Near East (a/k/a ocident, asia-minor/anatolia) and Egyptian "traditions" (myth cycles, cults, migration patterns) 3rd - 1st centuries BCE. Historical linguistic analysis gets quite technical with phonological and orthographic notations. For readers like me who are untutored in the "discipline" of translating dead languages, it's been a de-mystifying wonder puzzle. You simply have to acquire copies of the books. Totl bibliograhy ~ 600pp. I'm sorry.

I linked Hayes' intro to old testament youtube lectures (espec. 15-19, classic and literary prophets)here. You'll have to listen to them actually, hear the word and application of "eschatology" for yourself. Dale Martin's intro to NT, too.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
