Molech : A God of Human Sacrifice in the Old Testament – Hardcover


SKU: 9780521364744 Categories: , Tag:


Over the years there has been no consensus amongst scholars on the subject of Molech in the Old Testament. Was Molech the name of a god or was it simply a sacrificial term like the molk of the Carthaginians? Were children actually offered up in gruesome and fiery sacrifices to Molech or was it rather a question of harmless rites of cultic dedication in the fire? If Molech was a god, what was his origin and was it the case, as some have argued, that his worshippers equated him with Yahweh, the God of Israel? These are some of the questions which Dr Day’s fresh and thorough study discusses and to which decisive answers are given.
