Did the Golden Calf make itself?

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: The Golden Calf. Made by Man...or God? An article by the late Victor Hurowitz published originally in Bible Review in 2004. It is about the original meaning of the Golden Calf story. I noted nother essay on that topic here.

For posts on the history of the interpretation of the story, see here, here, here, and here. For a supposed golden calf in eighteenth-century Malta, see the recent post here. And follow the links from there for an actual silver(-plated) calf (bull) and an actual golden calf.
