This week I cover what is essentially the recorded history of Syria from about 3000 BC to the 20th Century AD. Syria is mentioned throughout the Old and New Testaments and I’m working it in here because it was part of the Battle of Siddim narrative. Given that more comprehensive records are avaible the closer to the current period we draw, a great deal of attention is placed on the first half of the 20th century in Syria. I also touch on the Ottomans, Akkadians, Egyptians, Muslims, Mongols, and the Crusaders. Next week, I’ll wrap up the history of Syria. You don’t want to miss it. After listening, let me know what you think.
