"Olympus: The Council of the gods" by John R. Salverda
The contention here being that Greece was colonized largely from Israel, let us look among the Israelites for the origin of the Olympian concept. We won't have to search Israelite theology for long to find such a thing as the Greek "Olympus," the idea of a heavenly council of the gods, who spoke with one voice from a certain sacred mountain, these concepts surely did not originate in Greece. Not only did the Israelites have such a mountain based heavenly council of the gods, but they even called it by the same name! The term that was used among the Israelites for "the gods," was "Ha Elohim." The Greeks borrowed the Hebrew word, and it wasn't just the word that they borrowed.
