The Origins of Yahwism from the Perspective of Deuteronomism

Abstract

This paper seeks to sketch the origins and early development of Yahwism as it appears from the perspective of Deuteronomistic texts. They provide an excellent glimpse to the development of Yahwism from the sixth to fourth centuries bce,when these texts were mainly written.This period was crucial for the eventual and later development of monotheistic conceptions that lie at the background of three world religions. Deuteronomistic literature may also be the most fruitful area for observingand understanding the reasons for the exceptional development that led Israel’s religion to a trajectory away from the other religions of the Ancient Near East. Although the Deuteronomists were active from the sixth century bce onwards, their sources also contain some information about the earlier development of Yahwism.
