Yahweh and Asherah

Although Israel claimed to be distinct from the Canaanites, in actuality the archaeological and textual record reveals that, “in its formative centuries . . . Israel was a lot what it claimed not to be . . .
In other words, Israel was essentially Canaanite . . . [and] we not know the religious landscape of Israel included one or more Canaanite goddesses.”  -Biblical Archaeology Review
