HOW THE LAND OF CANAAN BECAME PALESTINE AND ISRAEL:

A RACIAL AND RELIGIOUS HISTORY OF THE HOLY LAND

NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD - VIDEO LECTURES by Dr. William J. Neidinger

  1. The Canaanites.   In this introductory lecture Dr. Neidinger examines three topics: 1) the definitions, paradigms, and parameters we will use in examining the racial and religious history of the Land of Canaan; 2) the geography of the Middle East; and 3) a brief look at the Canaanites.
  2. The Philistines and the Hebrews.  As the Hittite, Mycenaean and Egyptian Empires collapsed under raids from the Sea Peoples and Phrygians, two new peoples appeared in the Land of Canaan: the Philistines and the Hebrews.  What were the actual origins of the two peoples? Were they destined to be enemies?
  3. Israel and Judah.  As the Canaanite nation separated into various peoples, new races entered into the Land of Canaan. Taking advantage of a power vacuum in the Middle East, the Hebrews under Saul, David and Solomon created a short-lived United Monarchy . Upon its dissolution, the Hebrews divided into Israel and Judah and fell prey to the Assyrians and Babylonians. Some Hebrews were exiled, some stayed, and a new people arose from the Hebrew nation, the Samaritans.
  4. The Greeks and Romans.  The allure of the Greek way of life fractured the Jewish body politic, which resulted in civil war and eventually the domination by Rome.  The Jews rebelled against Rome, with disastrous results.  With the subsequent conversion of the Empire to Christianity, the survival of the Jews and Samaritans seemed even more precarious.
  5. The Advent of Islam.  Though the Empire became Christian, Christianity itself fractured into local and regional churches, all of them hostile towards Orthodox Constantinople.  This hostility and persecution by the government made the provinces receptive to Islam.  The excavation of Antesion highlights the transition from Judaism to Samaritanism to Christianity to Islam.
  6. Arab, Frank, Mameluke and Turk.  With Islam came the dominance also of a new race in Canaan, the Arabs.  After a brief interlude of Crusader (Frank) domination, the Mamelukes (Turks and Circassians) came to rule the Middle East.  And finally all the holy cities of Islam came under the protection of the Ottoman Turks.
  7. The Population Upheavals of the Modern Age.  In the last days of the Ottoman Empire, Europeans started taking a new interest in the plight of the Christians of Palestine.  And Zionists in Europe began casting their eyes upon a homeland there. After World War I and World War II, floods of Jewish immigrants came to Palestine, creating a population upheaval as drastic as that of the era of the Assyrian and Babylonian deportations and exiles.
