Lesser Deities in the Ugaritic Texts and the Hebrew Bible: A Comparative Study of Their Nature and Roles Sang-Youl Cho A comparative work on the nature and various roles of the lesser deities, the so-called angels, in the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible. A comparative work on the nature and various roles of the lesser deities, the so-called angels, in the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible. Sang Youl Cho agrees with and follows the traditional idea which insists on the necessity for a comparative study between the two religious literatures from Ugarit and ancient Israel. One of the most famous of the lesser deities at Ugarit was a chap named Dan'il. There is little doubt that this figure corresponds to the Biblical Daniel; while predating him by several centuries.

Many tablets containing cuneiform (Latin for "wedge shaped") texts have been found throughout the Near East and used to write many different languages including Sumerian, Akkadian and Eblaite.

This book explores ancient conceptions of the lesser deities, the so-called angels, in the Ugaritic texts and the Hebrew Bible. It provides readers with fundamental understanding of ancient 'angelology' in the religious literatures from Ugarit and Israel/5(2). This means the Ugaritic texts are closely related to the Hebrew Bible, both linguistically and culturally. The religious texts discuss deities named in the Bible, such as Baal and El, whose descriptions contain titles and phrases attributed to the God of Israel in the Bible. Ugaritic is also one of the most important languages used to help. Like Ugaritic El, he is white haired and aged (“ancient”). Yahweh-El, the Ancient of Days, bestows kingship upon the Son of Man who rides the clouds after the beast from the sea (yamma) is destroyed. The Son of Man is given everlasting . Phoenician texts, such as the Karatepe inscription, also describe a Semitic pantheon: wkl dr bn "Im ("and all the circle/group of the sons of the gods"; KAI ; ). 2 The c dt "Urn ("assembly of El / the gods") of Ugaritic texts represents the most precise parallel to the data of the Hebrew Bible.

  In addition to language, the Ugaritic texts show many literary elements that have made their way into the Hebrew Bible, known to Christians as the Old Testament. Among these are images for God and twin sets of statements known as parallelisms such as those found in the biblical books of Psalms and : Cynthia Astle. along with other passages in the Hebrew Bible, has been used to show that the Canaanite god El may lie behind the the mid-second-millennium b.c.e. cult of ancient Israel. This theory has received much attention since the discovery and translation of the texts found at Ugarit (modern day Ras Shamra) in northern : Jed Robinson.
