CHURCH OF GALATIA
ANTIOCH, BITHYNIA, CAPPADOCIA. DERBE, EPHESUS / EPHISIANS,
GALATIA, ICONIUM, LYSTRA, PHRYGIA, PONTUS, TARSUS ... All of these are cities in
what we now call Turkey.
OT The map in the upper left is the Old Testament map of the Hittite Empire.
map in the lower right is the same land area as the Old Testament map but
it has the city names of places mentioned in the New Testament.
The map on the bottom left shows the relative locations of what we now call Turkey, Lebanon, Syria and Israel.
Through out history these land areas were called many different things, but by any name they are the same place. ( i.e. One person living in the very same house could have been a Mexican, a Texan and an American, by nationality )
While the same people and their descendants lived in the same place, what they were called depended on what political / group with the greatest power to murder the most people, controlled the land area.
Upper left is the Hittite Empire which included Turkey,
Lebanon, parts of Syria and Canaan / Israel.
Noah's Ark Settled in Turkey and it is written the whole earth was populated by the sons of Noah. The Hittites / Turks / Ephesians / Galatians or what ever you want to call them were most likely the first cities or nations on earth after the flood.
The whole earth was flooded for over a year and it would have taken months for the land to dry up. ONLY a guess but I figure Noah's sons did not wait for the mud to dry up before they crawled under the covers with their wives.
Unless the children of Huey, Dewy and Louie married their
own brothers and sisters, they created their families with their first
cousins... The grand children of Shem, Ham and Japeth were
out of their brother's children and their own.
Gen 36:2 Esau married Hittites. Esau's clan was the Edomites and of course the Edomites married the Israelites.
EZRA 9:1 The people of Israel, the
priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the Canaanites,
Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians, and the
In this period they cast out the Hittites and their own children... but these children cast out, were the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
The caper of the book of Ezra took place about 550 BC.
The events of Joshua are recorded about 1400 BC, that is 850 years the Israelies were producing children with all the Arabs around them..
JOSHUA 3:10 And Joshua said, Hereby you shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.
( IT NEVER HAPPENED ! )
( About 1350 BC )
JUDGES 3:5 The children
of Israel lived among the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites,
JUDGES 3:6 And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons.
The Israelites had been marrying these other Arabs around them and producing children with them for over 800 years before the book of Ezra, so when they cast out these Arabs in the book of Ezra, the Israelites who cast them out were descendants of the same people they cast out.
The book of Ezra did not end such mixing, David
married Bathsheba the wife of Uriah ( who was the mother of Solomon ) and
Solomon had a whole pile of Hittite and other Arab women
to tuck him in bed.
Arab Churches / Turks / Descendants of the Israelites
By the time we get in the NT, all those churches Paul and
the boys traveled to in Turkey were the churches of Arabs / Turks /
Hittites / Ephesians ... all of these saints
said to be gentiles were most likely descendants of the Israelites.
When those Arab women were cast out with the children of the Israelites they returned to their families and of course those Israelite spread the seed / heredity of Israel, Isaac and Abraham into their children and grand children.
When you look at the churches in the New Testament, look on the map to see where they were and know the first Christians were Arabs ... Arabs who were descendants of the Israelites.
When the apostles went to the Arab Christians in the churches of Galatia the Europeans never heard of Christ. The Arabs were Christians while our European ancestors were still involved in witch craft and human sacrifices.
