This Week in the Context of Scripture

This week’s reading was very light. The first two texts indicate the presence of semitic people in Egypt prior to and following the time of the Hyksos in Egypt.  These are not characters from the story in the Hebrew Bible. The other readings begin the Hittite section in the third volume and consist of a series of letters sent to the king of Kassu regarding a conflict believed to be “between the Hittite rulers in Hattusa and the Kaska of northern Anatolia.” This series of letters continues into next week, so save any significant observations, I will likely wait another week before posting in this series.

23rd – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 6 (HKM 6) (3.18)
24th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 7 (HKM 7) (3.19)
25th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 8 (HKM 8] (3.20)
26th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 9 (HKM 9) (3.21)
27th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 10 (HKM 10) (3.22)
28th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 11 (HKM 12) (3.23)
29th – The King to Kassu in Tapikka 12 (HKM 13) (3.24)
