Chapter Summary

Given Baal's presence on Mount apan in 1.3 I, the purpose of the banquet there can be suggested with perhaps somewhat greater confidence. If 1.3 I follows directly on 1.2 IV, then a victory feast celebrating Baal's defeat of Yamm would be in order. On the assumption that 1.3 I describes a victory feast, it shows one outstanding feature compared to other such scenes in ancient Near Eastern literature: Baal celebrates his victory apparently without his divine peers. Lichtenstein has studied the topos of the feast in numerous Mesopotamian, Ugaritic and Israelite texts, and observes a narrative pattern with a sequence in which preparations are made, food is served, and then drink is served.
