SIMON APOSTLE OF CHRIST
Naming apostles of Christ.
Matt 10:4 Simon the Canaanite, and
Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
Mark 3:18 (List of Christ's apostles) And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,
There were two apostles of Christ named Simon it seems. Either some of the apostles were not Jews or here is a Jew who is a descendant of the Canaanites.
The fact is one of Judah's sons that lived was the son of a Canaanite. The tribe of Simeon came from a Canaanite mother.
The Israelites were a pot luck of Canaanites. Today you would call their descendants Palestinians, Jordanians and Syrians. Here is an idea of who they were in the scriptures.
Remember Israelite does not mean Jew. Anyone could become a Jew but to be an Israelite one had to be a descendant of the man Israel.
We are told the sons of Judah's Canaanite wife Shuah died, but they neglect
to menton the son of Judah and Canaanite who lived.
GENESIS 38:2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in to her.
GENESIS 38:12 ... the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife
GENESIS 38:3 she bare Er.
GENESIS 38:4 she Onan.
GENESIS 38:5 she bare a son; and called his name Shelah
Her son Shelah did not die, but his descendants are found in the tribes of the Israelties.
GENESIS 46:12 the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah... : but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan.
The descendants of the Canaanite woman are found in the tribes of Israel
NUMBERS 26:20 And the sons of Judah after their families were; of Shelah, the family of the Shelanites:
1_CHRONICLES 4:21 The sons of Shelah the son of Judah were, Er the father of Lecah, and Laadah the father of Mareshah, and the families of the house of them that wrought fine linen, of the house of Ashbea,
Look at the page on Canaanites and know the Israelites married a multidude of Cannanites from whom came their Israelite children.
You can't take the Arabs out of the Israelites because that is all the Israelites were, a composite of Arabs... Chaldeans, Syrians, Jebusites, Moabites, Midianites, Ammoites, Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Philistines, Egyptians, Zideonians .... a pot luck of Arabs. NOTHING ELSE !
Yes Christ had a Canaanite apostle Matt 10:4, Mark 3:18. Yes the Israelites were nothing other than the ancestors they came from and they were the same Arabs the Israelites fought against, traded with and married. The bible is an Arab account of Arab people.
