Abstract Taking its point of departure in the expression of Yahweh's self-understanding as presented in the story of Moses at the burning bush, the first part of the lecture takes up the theme of representations of Yahweh and the narrator's presentation of Yahweh in the stories of the golden calf, the quail and the sending of the spies to the Valley of Eshkol in Exodus and Numbers. It then turns to the three-fold allegory of humanity as created in the image of God in Genesis 1–11, comparing this narrative figure of Yahweh with the concept of God in the Book of Job.
