Product description

This book is a facsimile reprint and may contain imperfections such as marks, notations, marginalia and flawed pages. A suggestion of interpretation. In Mesopotamia, long before their sojourn in Egypt, the Semites were in contact with the Accadians, and it was only within a few years of the penning of this book that we began to learn through the cuneiform inscriptions the curious results which were produced. It was in this region that the Jonah legend, or at least its basis, originated. The point found in this book is that past commentators on Jonah had been in almost complete ignorance of the people and the ideas out of which the story sprung.
