Hetep! In the three monolatristic faiths there is a group of people who serve as the focal point and chief proponents of the worship of the called called El. This group of people are called hebrews. In the scriptures of these faiths the first person to receive the appelation of Hebrew is the man called Ibrahim/Abraham. Ibrahim had two sons Ismail/Ishmael and Ishaq/Isaac, who then developed two nations, Hebrews and Arabs, both keeping the root from which their name derived in them, the aramaic word awbar. According to the Hebrew Lexican awbar means the following: 5674 `abar aw-bar' a primitive root; to cross over; used very widely of any transition (literal or figurative; transitive, intransitive, intensive, causative); specifically, to cover (in copulation):--alienate, alter, X at all, beyond, bring (over, through), carry over, (over-)come (on, over), conduct (over), convey over, current, deliver, do away, enter, escape, fail, gender, get over, (make) go (away, beyond, by, forth, his way, in, on, over, through), have away (more), lay, meddle, overrun, make partition, (cause to, give, make to, over) pass(-age, along, away, beyond, by, -enger, on, out, over, through), (cause to, make) + proclaim(-amation), perish, provoke to anger, put away, rage, + raiser of taxes, remove, send over, set apart, + shave, cause to (make) sound, X speedily, X sweet smelling, take (away), (make to) transgress(-or), translate, turn away, (way-)faring man, be wrath. Thus the Hebrews, whether called Hebrews or Arabs, are a group of people who crossed over, who escaped, who left one place to go to another. Also interesting is the connotation this word has in the Akan languages, where the word for hebrew is expressed as afrimu-or a people who seceeded or left a larger group of people. Thus the Hebrews are a group of people who left a larger group of people to dedicate themselves to a certain idea and culture. Based on linguistic evidence and comparative culture, there is evidence that the root group of these people were an African people dwelling within continental Africa. With the beginning understanding of the meaning of Hebrew, it calls us to now reevaluate our classifying of them as a people, and a reassessment of the culture which they presented to the world. At the present my time to post is limited, however this post was simply meant to introduce the idea, and 'till the soil' if you will, to be followed by the planting of the seed.
