This search on a collection of my bible dictionaries was useful... Egypt WITHIN 3 WORDS (snake, serpent, Nehushtan)

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Also, try Egypt WITHIN 3 WORDS (snake, serpent, Serapis, Nehushtan) to pick up the Hellenized cult.

Bible dictionaries (encyclopedias) tend to have Headwords so one Basic search idea of all resources is:

((snake,serpent) WITHIN {Headword Egypt})

that can be expanded to search for Egypt in Snake OR Serpent articles:

((snake,serpent) WITHIN {Headword Egypt}) OR (Egypt WITHIN {Headword Snake}) OR (Egypt WITHIN {Headword Serpent})

KS4J you teach if only I would remember the lesson. Building off your approach I find important entries with the following search

(Egypt WITHIN {Headword Nehushtan}) OR (Egypt WITHIN {Headword Serapis})

Edit:Mirroring your search finds several more articles:

((Serapis,Nehushtan) WITHIN {Headword Egypt}) OR (Egypt WITHIN {Headword Nehushtan}) OR (Egypt WITHIN {Headword Serapis})

How did you come upon the information regarding Wadjet and Buto; is it found in one of the articles in the former searches?

That actually depends on your library - because my library is large, I can afford to miss some articles so I start with a simple search and make it more complicated if the simple search didn't answer my question.

Egypt WITHIN {Headword Snake} had a search result with "cobra/Egypt" in my Library

Egypt WITHIN 3 WORDS cobra search included result:

Sometimes called the Nebty name from the word nebty, Egyptian for “two ladies,” or “two mistresses,” the Two Ladies name placed the king under the protection of the two goddesses Nekhbet and Wadjet. In pictorial representations, both goddesses rest on top of baskets, with the full composition writing out the phrase “the Two Ladies, Nekhbet and Wadjet.” The vulture-shaped Nekhbet was the tutelary goddess of the city of El Kab in southern Upper Egypt, while the cobra goddess Wadjet was the guardian deity of the city of Buto in Lower Egypt. Both sites were significant in the Pre- and Early Dynastic periods. El Kab, ancient Nekheb, was the capital city of the Third Upper Egyptian nome. It was situated on the east bank, across the river from Hierakonpolis, the important “City of the Falcon,” the site where both the Scorpion Macehead and the Narmer Palette were found. The divine name Nekhbet means “the one (fem.) from Nekheb.” Remains dating back to the Paleolithic have been found at El Kab and important cemeteries from the late Predynastic and Early Dynastic, as well as a temple from the latter date, have been found there. Buto, ancient Pe and Dep, in the northwestern Delta close to the Mediterranean, was the capital city of the Sixth Lower Egyptian nome. The Greek name Buto comes from ancient Egyptian Per-Wadjet, “The Domain of Wadjet,” reflecting the name of the goddess relevant for this study. Late Predynastic strata at the site show traditional Lower Egyptian pottery types gradually being replaced by Upper Egyptian ones, indicating a growing influence of the southern culture over that of the north in the late Prehistoric era.

Thanks for the excerpt. I don't have this title in my library though I own the Wisdom titles. This is very interesting I will give some thought to later purchasing this collection or I may just purchase the single volume now and wait for the rest. Thanks again, KS4J!
