Ancient Mesopotamian Myths, The Bible And Mysticism
November 4 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Rocco Errico Ph.D., Th.D.
- This event has passed.
This seminar is an insightful and revealing perspective on ancient Near Eastern cultures and language from which the Scriptures emerged. Myths tend to be thought of as fairy tales or something not believable and most definitely false. But that is not the genuine meaning of myth. Most people are familiar with Greek stories, gods and goddesses, but not the stories of the land between the Tigress and Euphrates rivers. The biblical stories begin in this region.
Dr. Errico presents a clear and helpful understanding of the first four chapters of Genesis. He pulls back the veil and takes you behind the epic stories of Creation, the Garden of Eden, and Cain and Abel. These primeval poetic narratives have had a deep effect on the modern world, both religiously and psychologically. Though they have, unfortunately, been perceived negatively, they were written to give humanity a new and positive outlook on life.
This illuminating seminar explores the following provocative topics:
- The creation stories of Atrahasis, Gilgamesh, and the Enuma Elish
- Women’s role in the ancient and modern world – positive or negative?
- Is Eve really responsible for evil in the world?
- The mysterious tree of knowledge
- Why did God refuse Cain’s offering?
- Do we live in a God-cursed world?
