Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Well, you can continue to reject facts if you want. I'm done replying to your posts. Have a nice life.

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

No one but you claimed the Jews were illiterate and had no language prior to settling in Canaan. Probably they spoke Aramaic or Akkadian before Abraham migrated. Once they adopted Hebrew there, they continued to speak it from then on. As for the original homeland, we know where it was, Ur in Chaldea...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

I don't know why I'm bothering, but I'll respond to your latest post. I don't know where you live, Lee, but most American schools do not teach anything about the Bible or its historical backgrounds these days. I know this both from going thru the system myself as a student, and from teaching in publ...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

There was no antisemitism in ancient times. You yourself say that Antiochus Epiphanes persecuted the Jews. Did he do this because he loved them? If ancient Jews are not native to Canaan then they are emigrants from elsewhere, probably the Mediterranean. They are not native to Canaan: see Genesis an...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

Ancient Jews are Greeks ( not Americans) The "not Americans" part is correct. Not the "Ancient Jews are Greeks" part. If this were true, why was there so much antisemitism in the ancient world against Jews, when the Greek language and philosophy were widely admired? It doesn't a...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

As for your claim about Hezekiah being a fourth-century BC ruler, again you need to see data from archaeology. The annals of the Assyrian king Sennacherib, from c. 690 B.C., reference his attacks on Samaria (722 B.C.) and Judean cities, including Jerusalem, in 701 B.C. The Assyrian texts describe He...

Re: 1 Kings 10:22 - Carthage & Monkeys

David & Solomon belong too the mythological realm and Israeli scholars admit they are fictitious. Which scholars? And there is a difference between admitting and claiming. As for David, you need to read about the Tel Dan Inscription, which references David's dynasty as historical. By implicatio...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

You make the common mistake of believing the Bible's historical records are wrong until proven right. An assumption never made about extra-biblical historical sources, even those that invoke or pay homage to the deities of those peoples. That is not fair nor is it logical, as time and time again arc...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

The Phoenicians were traders who ranged the Mediterranean, including Greek-speaking areas. It is believed that the early Greeks borrowed the Phoenician script and adapted it. However, that does not mean they spoke the same language. There are numerous cases in history where a script is used for two ...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

Luke 2:23 Every male that opens (διανοίγω/פטר ) the womb shall be called holy ** Then Peter is introduced in 2:25 Context matters, Lee. The man named Συμεών or Simon in Lk. 2:23 is not Simon Peter. Simon Peter does not appear in Luke's Gospel until chapter 5, when he is called to be Jesus' disciple...
