Among biblical reference books, fine works such as the Ancient Near Eastern Texts need to be supplemented by publications that incorporate Mediterranean literature, particularly the literature of the Greeks. Literary continuity runs from Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Levant into the works of the Greeks and Romans; and judgments about biblical texts are best made within that broad context. The Primary History (Genesis‐2 Kings) fits best after the development of Greek historiography, and Genesis’ dependence on Homer's Odyssey confirms the Greek connection.
