Enkidu, Jeremiah, and the Mother of Seven

The Prophet Jeremiah
by Michelangelo
From the Sistine Chapel Ceiling

A few days ago I wrote a post on “The Mother of Seven,” a study of Jeremiah 15:9. Now, Duane Smith at Abnormal Interest has written a post, “Enkidu, Jeremiah and the Mother of Seven” in which he links the harlot in Gilgamesh with the passage in Jeremiah.

Duane’s argument is provocative and deserves further study. I recommend that you visit Duane’s post and evaluate his proposal.
