The Bedouin and the Hebrew Bible
Do Jews owe their relationship with the God of the Bible to the Bedouin populating Israel’s Negev? That’s the theory of Israel’s foremost expert on the nomadic people of the Negev, an American Israeli who has spent the last four decades living among the Bedouin and researching them. Clinton Bailey posits that Moses, who fled Egypt into the ancestors of the Bedouin, adopted their way of life and their deity as his own before leading the Jews to freedom.
