Among historical scholars, there is some disagreement about the relationship between the Hebrews and Israelites.
The terms "Hebrews" and "Israelites" usually describe the same people, called Hebrews before the conquest of the Land of Canaan and Israelites afterwards
Wow like I am playing a guy that is nearly 3 thousand years old !
The game collects data where you are playing form and add the country to your skill level ……..so where is Hebrew?
Could it be Canaan ………………. ?
Canaan (Northwest Semitic knaʿn; Phoenician: Biblical Hebrew: כנען / knaʿn; Masoretic: כְּנָעַן / Kənáʿan; Arabic: كنعانيون / Kana‘āniyūn) is a historical region roughly corresponding to modern-day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, and the western parts of Jordan. Canaan was of geopolitical importance in the Late Bronze Age Amarna period as the area where the spheres of interest of the Egyptian and Hittite Empires converged. Canaan is historically attested throughout the 4th millennium BC; the later Amarna Letters use Kinaḫḫu, while sources of the Egyptian New Kingdom mention numerous military campaigns conducted in Ka-na-na. In modern usage, the name is often associated with the Hebrew Bible, where the "Land of Canaan" extends from Lebanon southward to the "Brook of Egypt" and eastward to the Jordan River Valley.
Much of the modern knowledge about Canaan stems from excavation in this area. Canaanite culture apparently developed in situ from the Circum-Arabian Nomadic Pastoral Complex, which in turn developed from a fusion of Harifian hunter gatherers with Pre-Pottery Neolithic B (PPNB) farming cultures, practicing animal domestication, during the 6,200 BC climatic crisis. Linguistically, the Canaanite languages form a group within the Northwest Semitic languages; its best-known member is the Hebrew language, being mostly known from Iron Age epigraphy. The various Canaanite nations of the Bronze to Iron Ages are mentioned in the Bible, Mesopotamian and Ancient Egyptian texts. The Late Bronze Age state of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra in Syria) is considered quintessentially Canaanite archaeologically, even though its Ugaritic language does not belong to the Canaanite group proper.
Well that does not help as Canaan has not been a country for a long time and I can really upset three major religions by saying it is a land curesed by god …………. Well there has been killing and murder of men women children and sheep there continuously for over 3 thousand years and that sounds like a curesed land to me, just think of all those poor sheep
As language studies are interwoven with cultural studies, the term also came to describe the extended
The term ancient Semitic religion encompasses the polytheistic religions of the Semitic speaking peoples of the ancient Near East and Northeast Africa. Its origins are intertwined with Mesopotamian mythology. As Semitic itself is a rough, categorical term (when referring to cultures, not languages), the definitive bounds of the term "ancient Semitic religion" are likewise only approximate.
These traditions, and their pantheons, fall into regional categories: Canaanite religions of the Levant, Assyro-Babylonian religion strongly influenced by Sumerian tradition, and Pre-Islamic Arabian polytheism.
A topic of particular interest is the possible transition of Semitic polytheism into the contemporary understanding of Abrahamic monotheism by way of the god El, a word for "god" in Hebrew and cognate to Islam's Allah.
In a religious context, the term 'Semitic' can refer to the religions associated with the speakers of these languages: thus Judaism, Christianity and Islam are often described as "Semitic religions" (irrespective of language family spoken by their adherents). Manicheanism and the Mandean religion also fall within this category.
So a anti Semitic is someone against Judaism, Christianity and Islam ?
Now as for a Semitic religion …….hehehehe …….. then you must include Ashurism, Adad, Hadad ……..now who would ever disbelieve in Adad
Now that is a god !!! why swap to a modern film image of Thor er..... why not just look at him, tall, blond and very male
wow is he hot just look at the size of his weapon …………… not too bright but I like that in a guy ………… guys and well even human guys were not created to be that bright, get things down from top shelves, carrying shopping, opening jars and dealing with monster spiders that hide in the shower now that is there main design purpose in life ......ok ok ok........... another good thing is that they don't need batteries but that is a bonus/
In Akkadian, Adad is also known as Ramman ("Thunderer") cognate with Aramaic Rimmon which was a byname of the Aramaic Hadad. Ramman was formerly incorrectly taken by many scholars to be an independent Babylonian god later identified with the Amorite god Hadad.
The term Abrahamic religions is more commonly used today. A truly comprehensive account of "Semitic" religions would include the Ancient Semitic religions (such as the religions of Ashurism, Adad, Hadad) that flourished in the Middle East before the Abrahamic religions.
