Product Description

The Bible is full of references to the Samaritans with several popular stories and events having some type of connection to this people. But who were they, and where do they fit into the story of the Jews? Understanding the Israelite-Samaritans: From Ancient to Modern provides rich illustrations and an insightful look into the lives of the Samaritans in the ancient world and exploring how that has translated to modern society. Author, Benyamim Tsedaka’s direct connection with the Samaritan community makes him an excellent source for understanding this unique community and its struggles throughout history.

Publisher's Description

Understanding the Samaritans opens a window into the fascinating history of the Samaritan community. The Samaritans are a small group that claims descent from the ancient Israelites, that is, from the biblical Kingdom of Israel (as opposed to Judah), and claims to continue the Northern Israelite lineage and heritage. The Samaritans are associated with one of the most famous New Testament parables, known as "The Good Samaritan." The Gospels also tell of Jesus' encounter with a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. Like Jews, Samaritans base their religion on the Torah. Their holy site is at Mount Gerizim, near Shechem, in the heart of the region of Samaria (hence their name), rather than in Jerusalem.



Understanding the Samaritans communicates the history of this ancient community in an accessible, clear way, along with rich illustrations that eloquently tell its story of tenacious survival throughout the centuries.

    Fascinating! I can think of no other word to describe this book. Benjamin Tsedaka, who is an Elder in the Samaritan community in Israel, is writing as one who lives his subject. As the subtitle suggests, the portrait drawn takes us from biblical to modern times. Frankly, both ancient and modern times are fascinating.

    Tracing back to the Northern Kingdom days of the Divided Kingdom Era, and being prominent in some episodes of Jesus ministry as well as one of His most famous parables, the Samaritans are a worthy subject of study for Bible students today.

    The book begins with a general history, then gives a review of their area, and even tells where settlements of their people were. In section 4, we get a careful explanation of who the Samaritans are and who they are not. We are told of their Scriptures, the Samaritan Pentateuch, which are the only Scriptures they recognize, and the difference with the Masoretic text. Then we learn their prayers, their customs, and their way of life.

    A book written by someone who believes in what they write always reads the best and that is the case here. With the incredible subject, you have the Carta maps and photos, which are the best out there! Theres nothing in print quite like this book!

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
