The cosmic mountain is an important metaphor in the Old Testament. People in the ancient Near East thought of mountains as the home of the gods and the place from which the gods issued decrees. The biblical writers shared this worldview but had the cosmos run by the lone, incomparable God of Israel and had human beings, the terrestrial children of God, involved in that activity. Learn how Eden, Sinai, the Tabernacle, the Temple, Zion, and the Church are interconnected by conceptual threads that derive from the cosmic mountain idea.
