Re: Searching for El
In Response To: Searching for El ()

Actually El means "banned" just like "ea" means banned(by the gods for giving man light--prometheus) they would be congruent especially considering that ea/yah/iah are all pronounced the same phonetically and ea/en.ki is Abraham's god while En.lil is Terah's. Where it gets confusing is the fact that the god El during the Phonecians time is Osirus/Lord/Adonai.... so somewhere after that time the Jews kept the name and changed the attribute ala Zues being congruent to Geb but the attribute changing to a more Ra/Marduk type later on in Greek history. I hope I didn't confuse.
