Title: Differences between Greek and Hebrew Gods


1
Differences between Greek and Hebrew Gods
2
  • Greek conception of God
  • Includes both harmonious and disharmonious forces
    of nature
  • Hebrew conception of God
  • Emphasizes only the harmonious forces of nature
  • Blames disorder in the universe on humans

3
  • Greek
  • Gods also an expression of disorder in the world
  • Hebrew
  • A priori assumption on a just and powerful God

4
  • Olympian gods are like the natural forces of sky,
    sea etc, have conflicts with each other like
    humans, but totally disregard humans

5
  • Behind all the gods stand the one powerful God
    Zeus but he is not all powerful behind him
    stands the mysterious power of fate
  • One God

6
  • Greek Gods not connected with morality
  • Morality is a human creation, Gk gods may approve
    of it but they are not bound by it
  • Hebrew God bound by morality

7
  • Gods here are immortal
  • Death is a human fear, just as the courage to
    face up to it is a human courage
  • Immortal too
  • All resides in the hands of the one God

8
  • Fate God in GK milieu but this Fate is equally
    capricious, for unlike Hebrew God it is not bound
    by morality
