Sieg Heil, fellow Aryans
We've all heard the names: Jews, Hebrews, Semites.
Well, I believe that the Semites (from the Biblical lineage of Shem) were White - Caucasian, along with the Adamites that came from Adam and his wife, Eve.
The name "Jew" wasn't even mentioned in the Holy Bible until like 2 Kings, but there needs to be made a distinction in context.
The word "Jew" highly likely (in the New Testament) is used as a litmus test for understanding and knowledge. The changing of language, identity, has been happening on a frequent basis throughout history. Most of the changes are around absolution of bloodlines, DNA, etc, and more around the merging of peoples into a singular nationality. For the most part, "SEMANTICS" is BS when it comes to DNA. Immutable fact.
There should be a clear distinction between the "Jew" of today's term vs a person who is from the tribe of Judah. And, the nation of Judea... Even though the Romans ruled over the land of Judea, Edomites - a people from Edom, or Idumea - slowly progressed north of Edom into the newly exiled lands of Judah by the Babylonians. A certain number of people from the nation of Judah returned, under an edict from Nebuchadnezzar, returned back to the land of Judah to build the Second Temple. A certain group of Edomites decided to levy their way into "helping" the people of Judah build the second temple. The same individuals were rejected. In jealousy, they decided to write to the officials in the land and abroad of what was "happening", obviously, obfuscating the facts from the officials.
There is no mistake... The Edomites were still in the land when the Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees took over the Second temple. With the advent of Jesus' birth coming around, the Edomites, now known to be "Idumean" in Roman tongue, had held power in the land now known as "Judea". Likely could call a citizen a "Jew" - after JU-dea (maybe a different form of "Idumea" - Iudea. The king of Judea (EDOMITE / IDUMEAN) had likely heard prophesied mysteries of a chosen Messiah / Anointed one - known now as Jesus Christ - unto which he would have likely killed, if not for a temporal fleeing down to Egypt. Mary and Joseph returned after some time, but it didn't save the rest of those around Christ's age of being slaughtered after the census.
Remember: A census can be good, in a particular way, but can be harmful when the local, state and national governments use it to de-populate Caucasian numbers through "Diversity quotas". "Diversity quotas" should be considered real. Certain numbers of inter-racial relations happen because of propaganda, "tolerance", deliberate immigration and wars / rumors of wars.
