Abstract In this article, the author provides a prolegomena to further research attempting to answer a most undamental and basic question – much more so than what has thus far been the case in the disciplines of Old Testament theology and history of Israelite religion. It concerns the implicit assumptions in the Hebrew Bible’s discourse about the fundamental nature of deity. In other words, the question is not, “What is YHWH like?” but rather , “what, according to the Old Testament texts, is a god?”
