Humans have always sensed something that is seen as divine in their existence, and they have always sought to imagine this divine reality.
What we today in the Christian world call God has developed from a plethora of images of the divine that exited in a variety of tribes and culture in the Middle East for thousands of years. These images of the divine are often contradictory.
God receives his characteristics and attributes from clever tribal gods of shepherds, the vindictive mountain God Jahweh, the primordial El, king of the Canaanites, the dragon slayer Baal and Marduch. He reveals himself in storms and thunder, and at times makes his entrance as a demon.
