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...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

https://www.ahdictionary.com/word/search.html?q=cognate Read and learn what "cognate" means when referring to languages. These cannot be cognates because they are not descended from related languages. I work with eight different languages, so I know a little something about cognates.

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

Just because PIE is theoretical doesn't make it fictional. All language comes from somewhere. IE (Indo-European) is not fictional. I did graduate work in Romance languages (philology) working with Latin, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. All of these are IE. Hebrew is NOT European! Even modern Hebrew...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

Lee כתב : he cognate of פת is ψωμός and the root is ψάω(psáō) 'crumble' the poetry rhymes the word with πηδάω 'leap' ( of the heart, to leap, to pass over). There are no Greek-Hebrew or Hebrew-Greek cognates, because they are not in the same language family. Latin pater and Greek πατηρ are cognates ...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

And no, Adonai אדני is not related in any way to Adonis. Not linguistically and certainly not theologically.
