No, but the Assyrians, Persians, and Babylonians all oppressed and/or conquered the Hebrews.(Note: there is a theory that the Phoenicians WEREthe ancient Hebrews).

The Hebrews had always been in the Fertile Crescent, which is a place with major trade routes, including part of the famous Silk Road. In addition, there is a sea coast for shipping. When the Hebrews settled in Israel (Canaan), they were in a place that bridged three continents (Asia, Africa, and the nearby Europe).

They lived in one region only: the Fertile Crescent, which streched from southern Babylonia to northern Egypt. Depending on the precise historical period, they lived in various parts of that one region.

Actually, the earliest Hebrews were black, but somehow, their names were changed to Jewish and was predominately white.Answer:The above answer is mistaken. DNA analysis has shown that the Jews are of Middle Eastern stock, from the Fertile Crescent. Quotes from our traditions and commentaries (such as Rashi on Genesis 12:11) show that the Israelites were not Black.

Abraham lived sometime after 2000-1800 BCE. He is called the father of the Hebrews. The Jews, however, not always synonymous with the Hebrews as the religion of Judaism actually came later. It evolved over the period of ca. 1200-500 BCE. When you date the end of the ancient Hebrews is harder to pinpoint, as they were successively conquered by Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Arabs. The Assyrians conquered them in 722 BCE, the Babylonians in 586 BCE, the Persians in 538 BCE, Alexander thet Great and the Greeks in 332 BCE, and the Romans in 63 BCE. The ancient Hebrews were always around though during these conquests, and are still here to this day.

The Persians, for a relatively brief time, had a vast kingdom which overlapped most of the areas in which Jews lived at the time. At first, they were cordial, as long as the Jews paid their taxes. Under Ahasuerus (Xšayārša; Xerxes), however, they were in peril when he granted wide power to the Jew-hating Haman. After the Jewish Queen Esther orchestrated Haman's destruction, the Jews rose to importance under the Persians, with the Jewish Mordecai serving as viceroy.

1) The route of Abraham from Ur to Harran and Canaan. 2) The route of Abraham to Egypt and back. 3) The route of Jacob to Harran and back. 4) The route of the Israelites from Egypt to Canaan. The first and third of the above, followed the curve of the Fertile crescent, skirting north of the Syrian Desert. Abraham's route to Egypt could have followed the coast or the Jordan valley. The route of the Israelites was a convoluted one.

Yes, there were Hebrews in the Book of Judges. The Book was also written by Hebrews.
