SIMON APOSTLE OF CHRIST
MATTHEW 4:18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Matt 4:10 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.
