 Reinstating the Divine Woman in Judaism by Jenny Kien
In the fourth century BCE, the Jahweh-alone Levites, and the priests, who were not necessarily Jahweh-aloners, were forced to reach a compromise, as they had to live together in the Temple.
In the third century BCE, Greek was the language of the upper class, and Aramaic was the language of the ordinary people throughout the Levant.
Centuries later, when the Jahweh-alone movement had long become the sole position of Judaism and when all polytheism had disappeared, a description of Jahweh in terms of the sun god was unthinkable.

At the Exodus from Egypt (13th century BCE), YHWH showed his faithfulness and power by liberating Israel from bondage and punishing their oppressors with plagues and drowning at the sea.
Jeroboam I (10th century BCE), the first king of the north (now called Israel, in contradistinction to Judah, the southern Davidic kingdom), appreciated the inextricable link of Jerusalem and its sanctuary with the Davidic claim to divine election to kingship over all Israel (the whole people, north and south).
King Jeroboam II (8th century BCE) was able to undertake to restore the imperial sway of the north over its neighbour, and a prophecy of Jonah that he would extend Israel's borders from the Dead Sea to the entrance to Hamath (Syria) was borne out.

Hattusas (modern Bogazköy in north-central Turkey) was the capital of the Hittite empire in the 2nd millenium BCE.
It was destroyed around 1380 BCE (during the reign of Amenhotep III), but soon rebuilt and refortified by Suppiluliumas.
One of his successors, Muwatallis (ruled approximately during the reign of Horemheb) moved the capital to the south "upon command of the gods", but his successor returned to Hattusas, which remained the capital until the fall of the empire.

 peoples of the ancient Near East
In the late 19th century, the French scholar Gaston Maspero suggested that the Shardana were a migratory people originating in Sardis who eventually settled in Sardinia, giving their name to both places.
In the 14th-13th centuries BCE, the Shardana also had a reputation as pirates, and it is possible that their success in this occupation provided one of the motivations for the activities of other groups of Sea Peoples.
However, this idea is tied to the theory that the primary factor in the Late Bronze Age-Iron Age transition was massive pillaging and piracy on the part of certain groups in the Aegean (Redford 1992: 244).

We are informed by some Conservative scholars that 1 Kings 6:1 suggests that the Exodus occurred approximately 1446 BCE, providing a "historical marker" that the narrator understands that Zo'an and Hebron "predate" the Exodus of the mid 15th century BCE.
Scholars have determined that the earliest mention of Zo'an in Egyptian records is of the 13th century BCE, and that it appears again as a minor provincial town in the 12th century.

Properly speaking, it is only after the conquest of Canaan in the 13th century that "Hebrews" are speaking Hebrew, which was a dialect of Canaanite, a Semitic language heavily influenced by Egyptian and spoken in the kingdoms of Israel, Judah, and Moab between 1500 and 500 BCE.
When state formation did occur, around the middle of the 11th century BCE, it can be argued, based on other historical examples, that it involved a process which increasingly excluded women from public and religious activities and introduced a stricter regulation of female sexuality.

 Jesus As Political Dissident by Jeffrey J. Peshut
century BCE, Jewish social prophets had protested what was at the time the most common form of economic and political order – the ancient domination system.
These domination systems were marked by political oppression (they were hierarchal and patriarchal), economic exploitation (they owned the land and taxed their subjects) and religious legitimacy (the social order reflected the will of God).
Of course, the situation of the oppressed and exploited only became worse when the Romans invaded Judea in 63 BCE, making it a client-kingdom not unlike the client-state of Vichy France during World War II or the client-state that the U.S. is attempting to create in Iraq today.

 Ancient Scripts: Elamite
From as early as the 8th millenium BCE, clay tokens of different shapes were used to represent commodities such as grain, livestock, alcohol, and manufactured goods for economic record-keeping and transactions.
Only starting from the 13th century BCE onward did the Elamite language reappear in the archaeological record, but at this point in time the Elamite had borrowed and adapted the cuneiform script to write their language.
While important during the early history of the Persian empire, Elamite gradually faded from history after the 5th century BCE as Aramaic became increasingly important as the "international" language of the Persian empire.

 Recent Archaeological Discoveries at Hazor
After several centuries of limited occupation, Hazor was rebuilt in the 10th century BCE, probably as part of King Solomon’s building activities described in 1 Kings 9:15.
The Late Bronze Age city was destroyed sometime during the 13th century BCE in a fire so intense that it cracked the basalt architectural elements of the palace, the gate shrine, and other structures and left a layer of ash up to three feet deep in places.
The recent excavations at Hazor have shown definitively, however, that the six-chambered gate and casemate wall were built in the mid-10th century BCE, along with a large public building connected to the earliest phase of the casemate wall by a paved street.

 Moses
There is however nothing in religious sources that specifically contradict a historical Moses, but the time between his life and the first written versions on his life is several centuries and over such a time span, there is ample space for creation of legends, an amalgamation of myths and a distortion of facts.
A further example of this is that in 622 BCE during the reign of King Josiah the High Priest Hilkiah discovered an ancient and mysterious and theretofore unheard of, “Book of the Law” attributed to Moses, this document became the inspiration for a religious reform of unprecedented severity.
