Chapter Summary

This chapter examines what information the comparison of six biblical texts and ten extrabiblical texts has yielded that we can use to answer our question. Smith and Weippert are the main advocates of the theory of the general Ancient Near Eastern theology. The chapter shows that the Bible writers on the one hand draw on the body of thought of the common Ancient Near Eastern theology of war and peace, while they lay important accents of their own on the other hand. Both remarks carry equal weight. A contemporary theology of peace will therefore have to guard against one-sidedness as one of the largest threats for peace.

Keywords: Ancient Near Eastern theology; biblical text; Old Testament
