In Canaanite Mythology, Resheph is the god of plague, healing, and war—a strange trinity of powers. Resheph is an underworld god that is also significantly present in ancient Phoenician, Ugaritic, Aramaic, and Egyptian literature. The Hebrew Bible mentions Resheph several times in a way that is associated with chaos. On the other hand, Egyptian Mythology often highlights his ability to heal rather than harm. One might ask which one is Resheph’s true nature, as he could afflict you and cure you, attack you and heal you, perhaps even over and over, a nightmarish torture. Resheph: a unique deity of light and shadows. A dangerous deity from the ancient world.
