Presentation Abstract

This research analyzes Deuteronomy chapters 4, 17, 29, and 32 exegetically in order to determine the characteristics and role of supernatural sub-divine beings within the message of the book. These particular chapters illustrate the thesis of the book of Deuteronomy, that YHWH alone is worthy of worship as both the Creator and Redeemer. Its mention of other so-called deities and objects of worship enhance this thesis. Deuteronomy acknowledges the existence of other supernatural beings but prohibits Israel from worshipping such beings. This research is part of a larger project that examines angels, demons, gods, and other semi-divine beings from Deuteronomy to Kings.
