Who Is Esau-Edom?: Charles A. Weisman: : Books

wh Two centuries later all of Edom was driven out of Mt. John Hyrcanus conquered the whole of Edom and undertook the forced conversion of its inhabitants to Judaism Joseph. Thenceforth the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people. When Antipater was killed four years later his son Herod gained power but was rejected by the Judahites.

Who Is Esau-Edom?

Herod shrewdly gained the support of Rome. With a Roman army at his heels he returned to Palestine, and after a six-month siege he captured Jerusalem, and became king of Judea in 37 B. Herod even rebuilt the Temple as it was in ruins from repeated sieges, part of which Herod was responsible for by his attack upon the city. We thus find that in the years just before the time of Christ, Judea was controlled by an Edomite faction, who usurped the Judahite name, land and heritage.

Confounding the matter is the fact that some Judahites had intermixed with Edomite, Canaanite and other alien stock at the time they returned from the Babylonian captivity Ezra 9: These mixedblood people were also hostile toward the Judean Israelites. The land was not the Kingdom of Judah, but the nation of the Jews Judeans.


This is the last mention of the Edomites as a people in history. Yet Bible prophecy indicates that Edom would be an enemy of Israel in latter times. We find that their only connection to a present day people and religion is with the Jews and Judaism.

We thus need to trace back the origin of the Jews to see who they are and how they fit into the puzzle of who is Esau-Edom. The Khazars were a nomadic people who had no traces of Hebraic culture. They had been following a pagan and sex-oriented religion until they had officially embraced Judaism in A.

The Jewish author and historian, Arthur Koestler, also concludes that the majority of east European Jews-and hence of world Jewry-is of Khazar and not of Semitic origin. In the beginning of his book he states:.

If so, this would mean that ewau ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan, but from the Caucasus; … and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The best historical evidence therefore, shows that the Jews are not descended directly from the Israelites of the Bible but derive chalres of their ancestry from the Khazars and other people of Turkish-Asiatic blood.

The Khazars are also of Edomite stock and both stocks make up the present day Jews, as the historian H.


The main part a.eisman Jewry never was in Judea and had never come out of Judea. According to the Jewish Encyclopedia, the original stock of the Khazars came from the land of Edom:. Hasdai ibn Shaprut, who was foreign minister to Abd al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, in his letter to King Joseph of the Chazars about… speaks of the tradition according iss which the Chazars once dwelt near the Seir Mountains.

The Seir mountains were the home of the Edomites for nearly a millennium. Thus, it should be no surprise that migrants from that land would recall the name of their original homeland. But how and when did Edomites get to Khazaria? There is evidence that in the 6th century B.
