This assignment has 2 parts:
Part 1: 3 readings from primary sources.
Part 2: a written assessment of these texts in relationship to the biblical material and culture today.
Part 1 – Read 3 ancient Near Eastern sources
You will read sections of 3 ancient Near Eastern documents. Enuma Elish should have been read last week; the Sumerian King List and The Epic of Gilgamesh are to be read now, utilizing the resources listed below.
From Babylon, Enuma Elish (“when on high” might be like our “once upon a time” stories) tells about Marduk’s defeat of the goddess Tiamat and his subsequent creation of earth and sky from her body. This is recounted toward the end of Tablet IV.
The Sumerian King List is simply a list of the fantastically long reigns of kings. Glance at this document but do notice the change of the length of years before and after the “flood.”
The Epic of Gilgamesh is a quest narrative but contains the Babylonian flood account. Read the latter section of Tablet XI and how Gilgamesh learns about the flood.
Library resources for these texts include the following. Check the table of contents for the texts as they are not all contained in every source.
Hallo, William W., and K. Lawson Younger, Jr. The Context of Scripture; Canonical Compositions from the Biblical World. Volume One. NY: E. J. Brill, 1997.
Pritchard, James B., Editor. Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament. Third Edition with Supplement. NJ: Princeton University Press, 1969.
Pritchard, James B., Editor. The Ancient Near East: An Anthology of Texts and Pictures. NJ: Princeton University Press, 1958.
Thomas, D. Winton, Editor. Documents From Old Testament Times. Harper & Row, 1958.
Online sources: These texts may be found online but choose a respectable translation. Some suggested links are provided below:
https://www.sacred-texts.com/ane/enuma.htm
Sumerian King List (different ages before and after the flood)
From https://answersingenesis.org/bible-history/the-antediluvian-patriarchs-and-the-sumerian-king-list/
From https://www.livius.org/sources/content/anet/266-the-sumerian-king-list/
The Epic of Gilgamesh: Tablet XI (about the flood)
From http://www.ancienttexts.org/library/mesopotamian/gilgamesh/
Part 2 – Write an analysis of ancient Near Eastern myths and the biblical material
Write a brief paper (3 paragraphs) assessing the similarities and differences between the biblical accounts of the flood and creation and the myths from Mesopotamia. In addition to the texts that you have read, refer to the material by your authors in Week 2A Reading. Do you think that our current culture has any “myths” about creation or the biblical flood?
Week 2A Reading
Genesis 22-30
Schnittjer, The Torah Story, pages 92-112
Arnold & Beyer, Encountering the Old Testament, pages 51-61
