The Nations Surrounding Israel

Jun 18, 2024 | Theology

In this, the 5th episode in our series on biblical genealogy, Dr Rob explains the origins of the nations that surrounded (and still surround) Israel. He explains who the Philistines, the Phoenicians, the Aramaeans, the Ammonites, the Moabites, and the Edomites were while adding lots of interesting little factoids that help us better understand the Bible.

Notes and links:

  • The descendants of Seir, the kings of Edom, and the chiefs of Edom

    Does the discussion of the various geaneologies mean that Jews were often at war with relatives? Does this also mean God had the Israelities destroy distant relatives who went astray?

    Can I have your thoughts on the “geo-politico-religious” dynamics of Daniel 11:40-45.
    There are a lot of Nations Surrounding Israel (I love that video) that are mentioned.

    Thank you,
    Rodley is for anyone interested in exploring the deeper aspects of human history, but a history informed by the Bible.
