There have been many empires that have come and gone. In the ancient world, the Babylonians, Persians, and Assyrians all had great wealth and power. They also built fantastic capital cities.\n\nBut each of these cities, with their great palaces, ended up being destroyed. However, there was a nation near these great powers that lasted far longer, even though it had far less power. They were the Hebrews. They are also called Israelites or Jews.
