Pagan Gods and Beliefs
Surrounded by pagan neighbors, God’s people often encountered people who worshiped other gods. Baal, Asherah, and other fertility gods played a significant role during Old Testament times.
By Jesus’ day, the baals were replaced by Greek and Roman gods. Hellenistic people engaged in immoral behaviors to honor their gods and to entice their return from the underworld.
