Abstract

Most scholars interpret the role of the sea in the Old Testament as one of perennial hostility against God and his people. Although it cannot be denied that the Old Testament often pictures the sea in a rather negative role, the author of this article is convinced that there is also an alternative to this picture. He points out a number of positive perspectives on the sea, which should be taken into account when rating the role of the sea in the Old Testament. Some theological-ecological implications of these are spelled out briefly for the people of the new covenant.
