Did The German ARIANS Come From HARA?

Tacitus, in Germania, specifically informs us that the name "GERMANY" was a late one. However, it is worth noting that there was a Persian People called "GERMANS" (Her. 1:125). Perhaps the same Scythic speech produced the same appellations independently. But it is remarkable that in Asian Scythia were CHATAE (Catti) SASONES (Saxones), SYEBI (Suevi), TECTOSACES (Tectosages), IOTAE (Iutes) and a town MENAPIA (Menapi) all coinciding with German names and which could only spring from identical language. There is even a small town called MENAPIA in Wales, just opposite to the people MENAPII in Ireland.

German ARIANS also have an Asian counterpart. Who were the ARIANS? Herodotus says the Medians were ARII (7:68). Reuben, Gad and half-Manasseh were placed by Tiglath-Pileser in the mountain district of Great Media, a region expressly called HARA (1 Chr. 5:26; Ar being a mountain). In fact all ten tribes of Israel were placed in the "cities of the Medes" (2 Ki. 17:6). HARA was named ARIA, ARIANA and ARACHOSIA by the Greeks (see Ptolemy). . It contains the city of HARAT. According to the black obelisk discovered in the ruins of the palace of Nimrod which is now in the British Museum, the people or leader of the ARIANS was called ESAKSKA (Isaac) and their principal cities were"Beth-Telabon, Beth-Everak and Beth-Tsida" in 670 B.C. This information connects the Israelites with the ARIANS. These ARIANS must have migrated to Thrace because, according to Stephanus, Thrace was called ARIA. From Thrace they migrated to Germany since Tacitus mentions the HARII there in SE Germany (Ger.43). The Thracian SCYTHIANS pricked and stained their bodies (Herod. 5); so did the ARII of Germany (Tacitus); the BELGAE of Britain (Caesar de Bell. Gall.), and the PIKS of Norway and Scotland (Herodian; Claudian).We believe that ARIANS or Nordic peoples are found primarily in NW Europe today. Their mission is to BLESS all nations of the earth (Gen. 22:18; Micah 5:7).

Who were the TEUTONES? TAHATH (1 Chr.7:20) or TAHAN (Nu.26:35) was one of the sons of Ephraim. He had two names. If we combine his two names we get the TEUTANI in Peloponnesus (Pliny 3:8; Stephanus of Byzantium 2) who migrated to Germany as the TEUTONES (Pliny 4:14).

Who were the HUNS? White HUNS (EPHTHALITES -- Procopius Wars 1:13-15) come from NAPHTALI.

Who were the DEUTSCH? HEMAN the ZARAH Jew, founded HAEMONIA, the ancient name for northern Greece. Ionia was also known as MILETUS after Mahol (1 Ki.4:31). . He later may have become the CHAMANI people of Germany (Tacitus) and may have founded ZARA Austria (28:959b). The Chronicles of Ireland mention that the branch of Judah known as Zarah colonized all the shores of the Mediterranean Sea and as far west as the British Isles and Ireland. "The JEWS, we are told, were natives of the isle of Crete.... they abandoned their habitations, and gained a settlement at the extremity of LIBYA (where we find the names UTICA and DAUCHITAE -- Ptol.4:6). In support of this tradition ... Mount IDA (Judah)... stands in the isle of Crete: the inhabitants are called IDEANS" (Judeans) (Tacitus 5:2). MINOAN Crete was Jewish. There was another Mount IDA (Judah) located near Troy. There were towns named MYCENAE in both Crete and Greece. In Crete, according to Homer, there was a "JARDANUS" (Jordan) River. Stone pillars in MYCENAEA were known as "BAETYLAE" derived from Jacob's stone pillar of BETHEL (Gen.28:18). MYCENAEAN Civilization with its horned altars, menhirs and sacred fig trees (Jer. 24; Luke 13:6-9) was therefore Zarah Judah civilization. Why else would the Cretan lawgiver Minos, like Moses, "go up every nine years, as it appears, to the cave of Zeus, tarry there, and come back with commandments drawn up in writing, which he alleged were ordinances of Zeus" (Strabo 10:4:8). They also colonized PHRYGIA. Did the DAUCHITAE of Libya (Ptolemy 4:6) became the DEUTSCH of Germany and DUTCH of Netherlands? ETHAN, another ZARAH Jew, may have given his name to ETTEN Holland, ETTENBACH River Germany, and ETTENHEIM Germany. Yes, Germany and Austria may be partly composed of Zarah Judah. The IATI (Jews) of SOGDIANA (Ptol. 6:12) (Kashmir India today) and the DAETYCHAE of the Ganges in India (Ptolemy 7:1) both must have migrated to Germany because we find the town of SEGODUNUM in Germany (Ptol.2:10) or DEUTSCHLAND. The Behistun Rock gives SUKTAS as the phonetic equivalent of SOGDIANA. An inscription found at Boghaz Keui, the Hittite capital of Asia Minor uses the phrase "KHABIRU-gods" interchangeably with its equivalent "SAGAZ-gods" (Egypt & the O.T. p.117.). Herodotus mentions the SIGYNNAE north of the Ister (Danube) who "dress like the MEDES and claiming to be "colonists of the MEDES" (5:9). Apollonius Rhodius says they dwelt on the Euxine (6:320). Strabo mentions them in Asia near the Caspian (11:757). Herodotus 3:115 mentions that the Rhine was anciently called ERIDANUS (Jordan).

Many of the world's best thinkers were German: Johann Gutenberg, Albert Einstein, Johannes Kepler, William Herschel, Karl Benz, Rudolph Deisel, Wilhelm Roentgen and Werner Von Braun are just a few who have been "PRAISED" -- the meaning of the name JUDAH.
