Shomron: Samaritans, Judaeans & Israelites Are The Same
Unity Consciousness #524


Despite what we've been led to believe today, in Hebrew-Christian bibles, Samaria is not a separate place from Israel.
The Samaritans are not a separate kind of people who have a different ancestry from the children of Jacob Israel.
The Samaritans and the Judaeans are the children of Israel.

Where Is Samaria?

Samaria is in the land of Canaan as is all of the land claimed by the 12 tribes of Jacob Israel.
Samaria is an area northeast of Judah between Judah and Galilee[also part of Israel in Canaan]. (John 4:3-5)
Samaria is west of the Jordan River.

(CJB), “ Omri bought Mount Shomron from Shemer for 132 pounds of silver. On the mountain he built a city, which he named Shomron after Shemer, who had owned the mountain.”
(KJV), “Omri bought the hill Samaria of Shemer for two talents of silver, and built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, after the name of Shemer, owner of the hill, Samaria.”

Although the more original CJB verse above says Shomron was named after Shemer, it seems more likely that Shomron is a combination of Shemer and Omri.*
Shomron is called Samaria in the KJV.**

Omri was King Of Israel at the time he built Shomron and established it as the royal city of Israel. He did not use his own money. It was the people's money.
Samaria is the royal city of Israel just as Jerusalem is the royal city of Judah.
Samaria represents 11 tribes of Israel, which is the largest portion of the tribes of Jacob Israel.
Jerusalem represents 1 tribe, Judah, which is the smallest portion of the tribes of Jacob Israel.
Samaritans (Samarians) and Judaeans are the same family of tribal brothers.
However, as too often usual, being family ain't good enough when it comes down to a whole bunch of pride, foolishness and survival stuff.

(CJB), “The woman from Shomron [Samaria] said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew[from Judah], ask for water from me, a woman of Shomron[Samaria]?” (For Jews[Judaeans] don’t associate with people from Shomron[Samaria]). (John 4:9)

In other words, Jacob Israelites of the tribe of Judah don't associate with Jacob Israelites born of those other 11, “non-ruling, non-Messianic” tribes of Jacob Israel.

This bad blood between family members mindset played itself out through a history of in-fighting between the Jacob Israelites of Judah and the Jacob Israelites of Israel which stemmed from the same tribal in-fighting mentality between Isaac's family members, Abraham's sons and daughters, Terah's family members, Noah's children and the Adam's family.

Samaria is another case of forgotten family identity just as the Philistine Palestinians are.

*It seems unlikely that Omri, captain of the army who had just been elected King by military vote and who then killed the people who killed the former king and then killed the person the people wanted to be king and who did evil in the sight of the Lord, is a person who would establish a royal city and then name it solely after somebody else.

** How the KJV can translate Shomron into Samaria is yet another example of KJV changes that are driven by human preference rather than an intent to preserve meaning. But hey, that's what versions are – a different version of the same story which often includes significant changes in detail. If the KJV did not contain significant detail changes from the CJB, the KJV wouldn't be a version – it would simply be a translation of the same story from one language to another language with no other changes, except perhaps, formatting to clarify and simplify. The KJV helps readability by changing from paragraph format to sentence format of verses. However, the KJV clouds many issues by using grandiose language and sentence construction. A side by side comparison of just one chapter in the CJB with the KJV will prove these things.

CJB Words Become KJV Words:
H:Shomron somehow becomes Samaria

H is Hebrew/CJB. KJV is the version when none indicated.
