HAVE YOU HEARD THIS ONE: Yahweh was one of the Sons of El Elyon
1 Yahweh, the GOD of Judaism and Christianity, was in fact one of the sons of the true God El Elyon
2 El Elyon was the Most High God and the creator of the universe but Yahweh was one of the sons of El Elyon, who along with his other brothers received an inheritance from his Father El and was made a ruler of ancient Israel.
3 Moses states in Dt. 32:7-8 that many generations before his time, the Most High, that is, Elyon, as the Hebrew text has it, separated the descendants of Adam and therefore humanity according to their tribes and He allocated a territory to each tribe that is later referred to as a nation. Jacob, that is, Israel
4 MT [masoretic text] erroneously has “sons of Israel” [bene yisrael], but the versions [e.g., LXX, Symm, Old Latin] and a scroll from Qumran support the reading “sons of God” [bene elim.]
5 David knew that other nations were ruled by the sons of Elyon and that only the land of Israel was the heritage or inheritance of Yahweh. He believed that if he was forced into exile he would have no choice but worship the god of that foreign land
6 Jephtah (Judges 11:23-25) regarded as hero of faith in Hebrews 11, most definitely recognised that Chemosh was an existing god and actually a legitimate god of the Ammonites.
7 King Ahaz believed that Yahweh was not the only GOD (2 Chronicles 28:23)
8 The Bible shows that some original names like Elnathan were later changed to Yehonathan. Eliakim to Yehoyakim. Elishaphat to Yehoshaphat etc. etc. El Berith in other source is Baal Berith.

is it proper to assess it as Cabalistic and bordering dualism?

Another lie from the devil.

This history of religions stuff is not the issue. One needs to work theologically at the OT. It is not how it developed (progressive revelation) that is critical, but what the OT aspires to and expresses theologically that is crucial – what is the OT kerygma? (The NT church had its own issues to work out as well.)

It’s heresy so let those who know it condemn it, and those that wrote it.

I heard it at a Pentecostal lecture proposing that the idea of the Trinity is not purely Greco-Roman theology but it derives from a much earlier writings and oral tradition which were part of the First Temple

False, 100% blasphemy.

I have have heard something like this before. Rick Wadholm Jr I think it is Ricky Martin in O Testament class. He was telling us different ideas for the past. I am not sure it was Rick. But you would get a better dialogue with him than I.
