"ONE" scholarly position.
Ha ha ha... weaker and weaker.
Hey there are people that believe the earth is flat. There is one scholarly position...
Good one Joe... Good one.
K and yea, look, god controls the weather. So yea, the storms. That doesn't make him "a storm god" anymore than me driving a car makes me a "car human".
Before El's revelation with the name of YHVH, it is said in Genesis 14:18–20 that Abraham accepted the blessing of El, when Melchizedek, the king of Salem and high priest of its deity El Elyon blessed him. One scholarly position is that the identification of Yahweh with Ēl is late, that YHVH was earlier thought of as only one of many gods, and not normally identified with Ēl. In some places, especially in Psalm 29, YHVH is clearly envisioned as a storm god, something not true of Ēl so far as we know (though true of his son, Ba'al).
