Judges 17-18. The unusual story of Micah, his idols, Moses's grandson and the establishment of the Altar of Dan. This episode is a strange one. It clearly shows how deep Canaanite influence was on Israelite culture. This is a episode where one bad things leads to another, and yet another. This story is a classic example of pre-Greecian Hebraic thinking. The influence and interest in the occult. The sheer lack of morality in the rampant practices of theft. Then, we are introduced to none other than the grandson of Moses himself, who is now presented as being the founder of the northern shrine in Dan that existed throughout the days of the later Kings of Israel, until the time of the fall of the northern kingdom. This is one strange tale, with even stranger details, but which apparently was established Israelite folklore with tremendous impact.
