The ancient and mysterious Canaanites are the descendants of the modern-day Lebanese


A new study proves that the ancient Canaanites wiped out of the promised land that God gave to the Hebrews fled throughout the world…

And went on to become modern-day Lebanese.

Living between 3,000 and 4,000 years ago, the holy text suggests things did not end well for the people living in the Middle East.

According to a passage in Deuteronomy, God had ordered the Israelites to exterminate the Canaanites from their promised land: “You shall not leave alive anything that breathes. But you shall utterly destroy them … so that they may not teach you to do according to all their detestable things which they have done for their gods.

It seems they didn’t destroy them all, though.

By examining the DNA of the region’s ancient and modern inhabitants, a team of scientists found more than 90 per cent of the ancestry of modern-day Lebanese derived from the Canaanites.

Moreover, no archaeological evidence has so far been found to support widespread destruction of Canaanite cities between the Bronze and Iron Ages: cities on the Levant coast such as Sidon and Tyre show continuity of occupation until the present day.

The modern-day Lebanese are likely to be direct descendants of the Canaanites, which therefore implies substantial genetic continuity in the Levant since at least the Bronze Age. But they have in addition a small proportion of Eurasian ancestry that may have arrived via conquests by distant populations such as the Assyrians, Persians, or Macedonians. Here the dna study.

Israelites wiped out the Canaanites out of their promised land, but it seems they found another place to survive and develop.

  1. Your article claim is a lie. God ordered the Israelites to destroy all Canaanites – Deuteronomy 20:17-18 , but the Israelites did not listen and did not destroy them all as God told them to do. They killed many but not all, as they did not listen, as can be seen later in Judges 1:28 KJV. Therefore Canaanites continued to live… Even many atheists know this.

    If you would know your Bible (which you’re probably not interested in), you would know this, but posting untrue articles like this shows a lack of credibility of this site. It seems you’ve done no research whatsoever before posting this, like the other “scientific” sites and articles.

    Even many atheists have pointed this lie out on other sites with very similar articles, but many of those sites still do not take down their purposefully misleading articles or even correct the articles, making them liars and hypocrites… These articles are just a few of many cases of oppositions of science falsely so called – 1 Timothy 6:20-21 KJV. They have an agenda to turn people away from God.

    The Bible calls them fools, and they are… – Romans 1:21-22 KJV

    If you keep this article up and it’s claims after me showing you proof, in the Bible, that you’re wrong, you’re also liars and hypocrites… If you don’t post this comment or take it down, that also says a lot of you and your site. The KJV Bible always turns out to be right. Either people lie by twisting it’s words or don’t understand what the Bible is saying.

    Ask yourselves, do you not believe in God/Jesus of the Bible because you would prefer He be not true more than you actually believe He’s not true?

    Romans 10:9-13 KJV
