WATCH: Ancient Israelite Cosmology Explained – Dr. Michael Heiser/Naked Bible

Shalom, everyone! The following is a video presentation by renown biblical scholar and author Dr. Michael Heiser on ancient Israelite cosmology, that is, how the ancient Israelites viewed the origin and general structure of the universe. The ancient Israelite view of cosmology was common among the peoples of the Mediterranean region. This view was that the universe consisted of three realms: a heavenly realm for YAH and His divine beings, an earthly realm for humans, and an underworld for the dead.

Dr. Heiser is the author of the book, “The Unseen Realm.” Please note that Dr. Heiser is of the Christian faith. While TwelveTotems.org does not support the Christian doctrine of Jesus (Yeshua) being a deity worthy of worship, we do support the monolatry supported by the Hebrew Bible: Other deities do exist, however, our attention, allegiance, praise, and worship must be to YAH and YAH alone.
