Israelites Israelites came out of Egypt and set up their cities in the land of the Ancient Canaanites The Bible portrays the Israelite civilization as coming from the area near Egypt Israelites claim they are descendants of a man named Abraham, and his grandson Jacob, who was later renamed “Israel” (One who struggles with God)
Moses The Israelites believe that a prophet named Moses led God’s people out of Egypt. He parted the Red Sea to allow the Israelites to exit Egypt He also received the 10 Commandments at Mt. Sinai. These commandments are the main basis of our law today.
Israelite Covenant One of the reasons that Israelites so vigilantly defend their homeland today is the belief that it came from a covenant that God gave to Abraham, Jacob, and Moses To this day Israelite are in dispute with other religions about who has claim to the land.
Kings of Israel After a period of time in their land, the Israelites chose a king named Saul. The kings were also the spiritual leaders of the nation. Kings were also great warriors in Israel. King Saul was the first king of Israel.
King David The next King of Israel was David. David was a righteous king who led the nation well. The nation of Israel has the “Star of David” on their flag today. David is the ideal that many Israelites think they need.
Fall of Israel The growth of nearby cultures and war eventually led to the fall of Israel. Israel eventually split into two different kingdoms…Israel in the north and Judah in the south. Eventually the Egyptians took over parts of the land, and then the Chaldeans under Nebuchadnezzar took over the remainder.
