Reply To: Significance of Monotheism (Lecture 6)

Jason Jewell

Jim, scholars disagree on whether the Hebrews were monotheistic from the beginning or if they started with “monolatry” (the worship of only one God) and later moved to monotheism. Everyone agrees that they eventually ended up at monotheism, but the question is whether that was true at the time of Moses or if it wasn’t until the 8th century B.C. or so.
