How did the ancient Hebrews know the origins of the Greeks across the eastern Mediterranean, their founders’ names and their lineages? My textbook from college at Dartmouth on ancient greek history mentions Javan as one of the progenitors of the ancient Greeks, Javan also listed in the Table of Nations in the Bible, a son of Japheth and grandson of Noah (which of course the college textbook did not mention), so is this just coincidence or is the Bible truly the template for ancient history with its Table of Nations laid out precisely?
A son of Javan listed in the Bible was Elisha, namesake of the Elysians of Helice or Elis, and Tarshish was another son, who sailed far to the west to help found the empire of Atlantis (along with Canaan’s son Sidon and grandson Atlas), Tarshish the namesake of Tartessos (ruins now under Seville), that name later affixed to the city of Tarshish on the coast of Anatolia built after the sea level had risen with the end of the Ice Age when Atlantis and much of Greece and all the ice age coastline real estate of the world was consumed by the sea.
The name Greece derives from the Graeci tribe of the Peloponessos, some of them having migrated to Italy, perhaps of the Pelasgian tribe (line of Shem and the Hebrews), where the Latins there named the Graeci’s ancient homeland Greece, over a millennia after the time of Javan and his sons. The unknown ancient Etruscan language of Italy was Pelasgian, much like Albanian today, great seafarers all, having precisely navigated by the method explained here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com/earth-measure-geometry, the cubit the same as that used by the Hebrews.
