In this episode Dr. Aren Maeir approaches a very controversial subject and that is the topic of genocide, religious violence and ethnic cleansing in the Old Testament, Ancient Israel and Canaan.
In this episode we discuss how common was religious violence in ancient Israel?
How divided was ancient Israel on the subject of religion?
And can we deem such religiously motivated violence as genocide in a world where such violence was actually quite normal?
