Who are the people of God? Jews? Muslims? Christians? I find it that if you were to believe in the bible and Genesis and Koran that there the true
chosen people of God come from Babylon. They are the Chaldeans. Chaldeans have a long, rich heritage which began in an area of the world which many
believe to have been the biblical Garden of Eden. Some even know that our language (Aramaic/Chaldean) was that spoken by Jesus Christ, the Apostles,
and the people of those times. Not many people, however, realize what an important LINK the Chaldeans provide to three major religions of the world.
Many people may remember reading that Abraham mentioned frequently in the Bible - and estimated to have been living circa 1,850 B.C. - is a descendant
of Chaldeans. He was from Ur of the Chaldees - the City of the Chaldeans. (He was the son of Terah, a dweller of Ur of the Chaldees.)
Based on several years of personal research, I have come to the conclusion that the Chaldeans - thru Abraham - have a historical LINK to the three (3)
major religions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam -- the religions practiced by the Christians, Jews, and Moslems.
Let's review these historical Chaldean connections:
By his wife, Sarah, Abraham had a son - Isaac. Isaac was followed by his son, Jacob, who wondered to Hebron and changed his name to Israel.
Jacob had 12 sons, which led to the formation of the 12 Tribes of Israel. He gave each of them their own land to rule over.
From one of the Tribes - Levi (Jacob's third son) - came Moses who was adopted by Pharaoh's daughter. Moses led the Jews' flight from Egypt about
1230 B.C. He is recognized as the great leader and lawgiver of Hebrews and father of Judaism.
From the Tribe of Judah, (Jacob's fourth son) came David - who slew Goliath - and eventually (more than 1000 years after Moses) came Jesus Christ -
and Christianity. (Memo: Christians were first so-called in 43 A.D. in Antioch, Syria.)
Not as well known is that by his Egyptian hand maiden - Hagar - Abraham had another son - Ishmael. According to the Koran, Ishmael went to Mecca and
his descendants were desert tribes.
Ishmael's son was Kedar (Qaidar), who is said to be the founder of the Arab Tribe.
The most famous descendant was Mohammed - who was born in 570 A.D. - and died in 632 A.D. Mohammed was the founder of Islam - the religion practiced
by the Moslems worldwide.
Now I'm not saying this is the absolute truth. Anyone with opposing viewpoints, I encourage there thoughts and opinions on this. I'll state
currently that my viewpoints are encouraged through bias/pride for I'm Chaldean. And most people who currently claim to be Chaldean are Catholic.
