Yahweh [a] was the national god of the kingdoms of Israel Samaria and Judah ,  with origins reaching at least to the early Iron Age and apparently to the Late Bronze Age. From the 9th into the 6th centuries BCE the Yahwistic religion separated itself from its Canaanite heritage as Yahweh became the main god of the Kingdom of Israel Samaria and of Judah ,  and over time the royal court and Temple in Jerusalem promoted Yahweh as the god of the entire cosmos, possessing all the positive qualities previously attributed to the other gods and goddesses. During the Second Temple period , speaking the name of Yahweh in public became regarded as taboo. He does not appear to have been a Canaanite god, although the Israelites were originally Canaanites. Israel emerges into the historical record in the last decades of the 13th century BCE, at the very end of the Late Bronze Age when the Canaanite city-state system was ending,  and the milieu from which Israelite religion emerged was accordingly Canaanite. This pair made up the top tier of the Canaanite pantheon;  the second tier was made up of their children, the "seventy sons of Athirat" a variant of the name Asherah.
God had a wife, Asherah, whom the Book of Kings suggests was worshipped alongside Yahweh in his temple in Israel, according to an Oxford scholar. In , Raphael Patai was the first historian to mention that the ancient Israelites worshipped both Yahweh and Asherah. The theory has gained new prominence because of the research of Francesca Stavrakopoulou, who began her work at Oxford and is now a senior lecturer in the department of Theology and Religion at the University of Exeter. Information presented in Stavrakopoulou's books, lectures and journal papers has become the basis of a three-part documentary series, now airing in Europe, where she discusses the Yahweh-Asherah connection. But on this fact, Jews, Muslims and Christians, the people of the great Abrahamic religions, are agreed: There is only one of Him," writes Stavrakopoulou in a statement released to the British media.

Gods, Goddesses, And Images of God.
These words from the First Letter of John express with remarkable clarity the heart of the Christian faith: the Christian image of God and the resulting image of mankind and its destiny. We have come to believe in God's love : in these words the Christian can express the fundamental decision of his life. Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction. In acknowledging the centrality of love, Christian faith has retained the core of Israel's faith, while at the same time giving it new depth and breadth.
Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in a single, omnipotent deity that created the heavens and earth. But if he was and is the only god, why would God need a name? The Bible explicitly tells us that God has one, which indicates he had to be distinguished from other celestial beings, just like humans use names to identify different people. What that name might be is another matter. The existence of a proper name for God is the first indication that the history of Yhwh and his worship by the Jews is a lot more complicated than many realize.
This role gave her a similarly high rank in the Ugaritic pantheon. As a result, one could understand Yam to be the sea itself, deified, as opposed a god who holds dominion over it. Alternative translations of her title have been tendered that follow this suggested etymology, such as "she who treads on the sea dragon",  or "she who treads on Tyre "  - the former of which appears to be an attempt to grant the Ugaritic texts a type of Chaoskampf. A more recent analysis of this epithet has resulted in the proposition of a radically different translation, namely "Lady Asherah of the day", or, more simply, "Lady Day".

Никакого представления о пунктуальности. Он позвонил бы Северной Дакоте сам, но у него не было номера его телефона. Нуматака терпеть не мог вести дела подобным образом, он ненавидел, когда хозяином положения был кто-то .
За полтора метра до стеклянной двери Сьюзан отпрянула в сторону и зажмурилась. Раздался страшный треск, и стеклянная панель обдала ее дождем осколков. Звуки шифровалки впервые за всю историю этого здания ворвались в помещение Третьего узла. Сьюзан открыла. Сквозь отверстие в двери она увидела стол.
