in response to reader comment: sTs, This Is Going To Suprise You

Submitted by Keith Williams (United States), Feb 16, 2009 at 00:49

Sorry anne. Technically the prophets were not all Jewish. Adam, Noah, Abraham from the Genesis were not Jewish they were from Southern Iraq or Northern Arabia between the Tigris and Euphrates so technically you can call them Iraqi or Saudi or maybe Kuwati. Israelites would not be right either. Hebrew would be better. But still Adam and Noah were not Hebrew since they came before Abraham whose father was Eber from what some scholars say the word Hebrew comes from. Or maybe it is for the people from across the Euphrates.
