    The abduction of the Sabine women also reminds me of the story of the Benjamites in the book of _Judges_ when they captured the daughters of the people of Shiloh.

      It was common for ancient conquerors to take the women of their conquered enemies as “wives”. That’s probably why Neanderthal DNA is in Europeans.

    The recording says that it is from Librivox, but I can't find a Livy's History of Rome on Librivox to save me. Any thoughts? I'd rather listen from the Librivox app. Thanks for the recording!

      @Ancient Times Yep...content is the same on app and website, though I typically use the website for my searches first just to make it easier. And that's where I was searching for this recording, on the website, and I am unable to find it. Thanks for your reply, though!

    Wow the capture of the Sabean women coincides with the history in the _Book of Jasher_

      @kelvyquayo *Sorry for not getting back to you sooner* as I've been very busy with work. What I see that this means is that we are challenged more to discern the truth from falsehood.
      *If God did not want* falsehood to be discerned from the truth then He would not have placed the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil next to the Tree of Life next to one another. Let us remember that God's ways and thoughts are not like man's and are always higher than ours.

      @Jeremy Castro What do you think is the meaning of these things?
      I personally believe that 'scripture' (66 Books of Bible ) are the only words that could reasonably accept as the information that The Lord has directly caused to be preserved without lie or error.
      And that any similarities in any recording elsewhere are mere historical, ethnic, cultural, or otherwise 'watered down' reflections of the the actual truth as recording in The Bible.
      This is speaking religiously.. Now speaking as a HISTORY NERD.. then everything is fair game!!
      But in regards to my comment about book of Jasher.... just like the Book of Enoch... or the Acti Pilati... or any of those types of things..
      I could not logically accept that God meant for these books to be received as Truth and yet He was powerless to stop people from removing it or hiding it.... Or else if God did allow only CERTAIN people to know this special information.. or expect them to believe it.... this would contradict the character of God in a number of ways... in my view..
      ..the least problem not being that to accept anything but Bible as Truth most people in the world would be left letting another human being tell them or persuade them what to believe or not... which is the cause of many great spiritual harms.
      This is why I came at this so hard.. although I still do regret my tone.....

      @kelvyquayo *In addtion to what I have said about the three aforementioned stories* consider the parallels between the stories of the great men and gods of the past with that of Christ as told in _Revelation_ and the _Gospels._
      *John tells us* in _Revelation_ that the Great Red Dragon waited for the Messiah to be born who would overthrow him so that he would eat him. That Messiah is Jesus who is prophesied to come at the end of days and overthrow Satan and evil for good.
      *The ancient Greeks tell us* that Chronos ate his children in order to avoid being conquered by the one prophesied to overcome him. When Zeus was born his mother Rhea saved him by giving her husband a stone wrapped in swaddling cloths.
      *And Moses* was saved in manger. Later he overcame the tyrannical Pharaoh of Egypt.
      *Herodotus in his* _Inquiries_ tells us that Cyrus was saved by a cow herder and his wife who swapped their dead baby to be killed in his stead. And later he became the king of Asia and overthrew the corrupt Median king who wanted to kill Cyrus after suffering a terrible vision about him being overcome by the son of a Persian he had married his daughter off to.
      *While there are many more like stories* to tell you cannot simply discount them without having heard then from beginning to end. After all if these various stories had not been passed down to us and preserved then what would we know of our own past?

      @kelvyquayo *I accept your apology and forgive you* as I have spoken out in the same way before without fully hearing out the matter. Since you now see why the story of the Sabine women is interesting, you will also consider it of great interest how the story of the Benjamites carrying off the women of Shiloh in the chapter twenty one of _Judges_ coincides with the story of the Sabine women and that found in the _Book of Jasher._

      @Jeremy Castro Actually I apologize coming at you without really knowing your context..
      I was assuming you were saying that the Sefer HaJashar as mentioned in The Bible is something that we know exists today... or are the same ones fabricated in relatively recent history... I'm just coming at this as a Bible believing Christian.
      But again.. If a story in one these fabrications does match up with the Sabines myth then indeed I can see how that may be interesting.

      Mythically it was 753BC, but in reality it would have been occupied by farmers and such long before.

      It's not their fault that they have an accent. It's your fault that you can't understand.
