The biblical story details a surprising number of marriages between Israelite and non-Israelite people. This leads to questions about what is a “Jew”, where the boundaries are between “races” (if they even exist), and what we should expect to see when we look at the DNA of Jewish and other Middle Eastern people. According to the Bible, the Jews should be a mélange of all the people among whom they lived. Is it true?
