Hebrew Origins

The origins of the Semitic people is not clear. The King James Version of the Bible is an accurate record of Hebrew history.

There are some evidence of events that happened in the Bible. Archeological evidence shows that there was a city that walls broke due to a loud noise (Jericho). The Biblical characters of David, Solomon and Saul are supported by other historical records. Solomon did use oppressive taxes. David won many victories. The Hebrews did settle in Canaan which was conquered by the Philistines about 1050 BCE and now called Palestine.

The Hebrew nation lasted until 1025 BCE under Saul.

Saul did kill himself and David assumed the position of king. He began building the church in Jerusalem.

Solomon did continue the building of the temple with the taxation and through trade and tribute of sending Jews to work the forests and mines of the Phoenicians. Lumber was sold to Crete and Egypt.

After Solomon's death, warring factions split Israel into two nations, the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah.

The northern kingdom during the time of Queen Jezebel was destroyed by the Assyrians in accordance to the brutality accorded the Assyrians in 722 BCE.

Nebuchadnezzar conquered Judah in 586 BCE. He sent all the Leaders from Judah and enslaved them in Babylon in order to maintain control and reduce future rebellions.

Persia conquered Babylon in 539 BCE.

The Hebrews, afterwards, lived under different dictators. The Greeks conquered the territory, then the Romans. Rome destroyed the temple in Jerusalem in 70 BCE after a rebellion. It was never rebuilt..

Most of the literature of the Hebrews are in the Old testament of the Bible. The writings are the foundation of Judaism, Islam and Christianity
