It is impossible to study the history of the Middle East without having a good grasp of Biblical Studies. For several thousand years Jewish scholars recorded the words of their prophets and historians. As kingdoms rose and fell across the Middle East, the Jewish record offers a constant thread from generation to generation. Unlike the kingdoms around them, their chronologies were based on a procession of High Priests. Kings came and went.
Kingdoms divided, with multiple rulers and times of confusion and conflict. But the procession of High Priests provide a continuity that few other civilizations could match.This section of Nabataea.net focuses on Biblical studies from the first lines of Genesis, to the occupation of the Middle East by the forces of the Roman Empire. It will especially be of interest to those who hold the Biblical record in high esteem, and may be frustrating to others, who have long dismissed the Jewish record as fables and fiction.
