Reader comment on item: Jerusalem, Jordan, and the Jews
in response to reader comment: Attention Reynald: The Arabs are ancient people!

Submitted by Reynald de Chatillon (Australia), Jun 30, 2020 at 02:51

I was mainly referring to references in the Old & New Testaments. I'm certainly aware of the Lakhmid and Ghassanid Arab tribes. However, these are outside the period we are dealing with. They were active from about 300 AD to 600 AD, particularly during the conflict between Rome and the Sassanians. When it comes to New Testament times, there is the Nabatean Arabs, who came into contact with Herod the Great's kingdom. They were a formidable power, indeed. The Arameans certainly were in contact with the Old Testament Israelite kingdoms, but are they really Arabs?
