I’m always fascinated by Dr. Robert Carter’s talks about genetics. Even though I wish he could be more specific at times, I know it is his honesty when discussing data that can be frustratingly vague that leads to his own vagueness.
Today’s video brings his study of the Jewish people up through today’s population, and there are many reasons to particularly focus on them.
First, they are Jesus’s family; God has proven himself faithful through the millennia as he has always preserved a remnant of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s children just as he had promised.
Second, their culture and religion has helped them preserve their identity in a way that allows us to study how well historical claims fit in with genetic analysis. And, I think you’ll find what Dr. Carter has to say about these issues as intriguing as I did.
