Surprise, The Canaanite People Are In Lebanon!

Jul 29, 2017 | | 1 comment

So, Canaanite descendants are modern day Lebanese. Interesting! After their formations, Judah and Israel lived side-by-side with the people they called Canaanites, a people who lived in the areas of what is Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, and Israel today. DNA analysis shows that the modern day people of Lebanon are living proof of their continued (genetic) survival as a people. So, Cananaum (as they called themselves), Canaanites, Phoenicians, whatever you want to call them, are alive and well in Lebanon. Fascinating.

The people of modern-day Lebanon can trace their genetic ancestry back to the Canaanites, new research finds. The Canaanites were residents of the Levant (modern-day Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine) during the Bronze Age, starting about 4,000 years ago.
Canaanites kept their records on easily degradable papyrus rather than clay, little is known about their side of the story (reference to the Judah-Israeli myth). But now, ancient DNA reveals that the Canaanites were the descendants of Stone Age settlers and the ancestors of the Lebanese.

Ancient writings are a perspective on history, not literal history. Wonder if we’ll know one day what the Canaanites wrote about Judah/Israel?

  1. Well, more 2nd Temple Wall, a Roman amphitheater not quite completed likely because of the Bar Kochba revolt, … the Temple of Jupiter must be very near! The secular history of ancient Israel is a lot more exciting than the religious history myths.

    “In 70 CE, the Second Temple was razed along with most of the Jewish settlement of Jerusalem. In its place, the Roman colony Aelia Capitolina was established and named after the Roman god Jupiter and the emperor Hadrian (also known as Aelius), who began reconstructing the city in 130 CE. Following the bloody Bar Kochba Revolt of circa 132–136 CE, Jews were banned from the capital aside from on Tisha B’Av, a day of mourning commemorating the destruction of the Temple.”
