Jewry: Fake and truth in the Old Testament (OT) according to documents and excavations

New identity by new Jewish history by help of chronology and archaeological research

13. Alleged split of the land after the victory after the faked occupation

von Michael Palomino (2006 / 2010)



from: Israel Finkelstein / Neil A. Silberman: The Bible unearthed. Archeology's New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts; The Free Press, a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc., 2001; German edition has got the title "No trombones before Jericho" (orig. German: "Keine Posaunen vor Jericho"): edition C.H.Beck oHG, Munich 2002;

Here in this analysis is used the German version "Keine Posaunen vor Jericho" of DTV, Munich 2004, second edition of 2005. All page indications refer to the German version. I hope the page numbers are not very different.

There are different versions of victories for the faked occupation: total victory or partial victory

OT claims:
-- the whole land is said having occupied by the Jews and all enemies are said having defeated (Joshua 21, 43-44) (p.112)
-- "The land was calmed by the war" (Joshua 11,23)
-- all Canaanites and other native peoples are said having been destroyed (p.113).

But according to other passages in the faked book Joshua many Canaanites and Philistines are going on living as neighbors of the Israelites (book Joshua, book of Judges) (p.112). The same book Joshua stating that all land would be occupied (p.113) is stating in other passages that big parts of Canaan are waiting to be occupied yet (p.113-114):
-- all territories of the Philistines on the southern coast
-- the Phoenician coast farther to the North
-- the whole Beka'a valley in the North East (Joshua 13,1-6)
-- and in over 50% of the tribal homeland would exist big enclaves with Canaanites yet

-- according to book of Judges, Megiddo, Beth-Shean and Gezer are not under Jewish occupation, but according to book Joshua the rulers of these towns are in the list of the alleged defeated kings

-- the Ammonites and Moabites on the Eastbank of Jordan river, [the invented] Jewish enemies, are said having been not defeated, as also the Midianites and the Amalekites with their alleged assaults on camels coming from the desert (p.114).

[All these contradictions provoke that the events of Joshua's victories are not very trustworthy. But there are other facts].

Life of the early Jewish tribes according to outdated OT: book of Judges

At the beginning of the outdated book of Judges is indicated the warning of assimilation in chapter 2,11-19 [racism with prohibition of marriage], and inspired persons, fair-minded men and women, so called "judges", have to save the population of Israel of critical situation (p.115).

But ethnic mixed connections also were known, e.g. the case of Simson (p.112).

The invented distribution of land according to outdated OT

OT claims:
-- Joshua is said having called all tribes for a land distribution
-- the tribes Ruben, Gad, and the half of the tribe Manasseh are said having received land on the Eastbank of Jordan river
-- all other tribes are said having received land on the Westbank of Jordan river
-- the tribes Napthali, Asser, Sebulon, and Issashar are said having received land in the mountains of Galilee
-- the second half of the Manasseh tribe and the tribes Ephraim and Benjamin are said having received the big part of the Westbank mountains, the territory of Jezreel plain in the North down to Jerusalem in the South
-- the tribe of Judah is said having received the territory between the southern mountain of Jerusalem down to the bay of Beersheba in the South

-- the tribe Simeon is said having received the dry plain of Beersheba and the coastal plain aside
-- the tribe of Dan is said having received the coastal plain and is said having shifted his territory to the North of the country
-- then the tribal territories are said not having been changed any more (p.113).

[Well, all these distributions are a big invention indicating a right of territorial power. But the events were other ones].
