Mrs. Asherah Yahweh Tree Service

A Yahweh Tree Service

The picture above was taken by Ryan Bonfiglio and came to my attention via Ancient Near Eastern Studies at Fuller on Facebook. But what does it mean? Does the “A” stand for Asherah, in which case this tree service is caring for trees in the name of Mrs. A. Yahweh who was often represented by a tree herself? Or is this a company that cuts down Asherah trees in Yahweh’s name? Or something out?

    Yeah haha. An interesting name. Or maybe this was the plan in the first place. They’ve got free ads in social medias right?
