Can you enjoy reading The Old Testament without being a christfag? I enjoyed The Epic of Gilgamesh

Even christposters are forcing themselves to like that shit.

Largely doesn't matter, they're all of more-or-less the same quality.

ITT mongrels...

>>7325876
i have a doubt here.

was the old testament influenced by gilgamesh, or was gilgamesh influenced by jew mythology?

>>7326524
get stephen mitchell if you want to read an actually worthwhile piece of literature constructed out of the bare materials
get the penguin one if you're a scholar who's just interested in the academic side of things
