Keturah Abraham’s Third Wife And Hinduism


By simply considering the migratory streams of humans around the world, we are able to focus on the evolution of the different cultures.

Civilisation did not originate from Asia and then moved towards the West and the middle east. This is to confront theories that the Bible has adapted stories from Hinduism, which I refute. Stories revealing certain divinities therefore must originate at the cradle of civilisation. The word Hindu is derived from the Indo-Aryan and Sanskrit word Sindhu, which means “a large body of water”, covering “river, ocean”.

Considering Abraham’s third wife Keturah and her six children, they were sent towards the East i.e. Perisa and India. Where most of them settled down beyond the Indus river. This is how “Hindu” was derived and the religion followed  much later. The Hindu people are also children of Abraham, hence why even today we find the Brahmanas i.e derived from Abraham.

Also worth considering, some grand children of Keturah are deities in India, for example : The second son of Keturah by Abraham, Jokshan, had two sons Sheba and Dedan. Dedan is recorded as being the progenitor of the Asshurim, the Letushim and the Leummim (Gen. 25:3). Asshurim is the Ashrama in Hinduism, one of four age-based life stages discussed in Indian texts of the ancient and medieval eras. Brahmacharya, Grihastha, Vanaprastha and Sannyasa.

The point is this, there are a lot of similarities between the Israelites that worshipped a cow, after they escaped Egypt, and present day Hinduism. This is because they are to a certain degree associated with each other. The Biblical happenings therefore, especially in the old testament and to a small extent, have wondered over to Hinduism.
