The descendants of Jebusites are Jews today.

Reader comment on item: Jerusalem, Jordan, and the Jews
in response to reader comment: The Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day.

Submitted by AV (United States), Jun 26, 2020 at 00:44

In ancient Jerusalem, Jebusites married into the families of the tribes of Judah, eventually adopting Tora, and are Jews today. The conversion of Jebusites to Judaism was protracted but inexorable, and complete by the end of the Exile of Babylon.

All of the descendants of the Canaanites in the Land of Israel are Jews today.

(In Lebanon, the Canaanites are Christians today.)
