Israelites

The Israelites (better known as Hebrews) had a tough go at things in history.  The were bossed around, moved around, and treated unfairly.   Abraham was their leader, remember that guy? 

First, why did the Hebrews (aka Israelites) leave Canaan? 

Secondly, why did Moses (yeah, that guy you might have heard of in church) wander around in the desert for 40 years? 

Oh, and why were the Israelites sent into exile?   Those Assyrains were mean people....with their battering rams and armed charioters, but why EXILE someone?  Gezzzzz!

They left canaan because they were starving and god had told abraham to leave to Egypt. They wandered the desert for 40 years because they were looking for the 10 commandments that god gave them. Assyrians sent the Israelites into exile because they resisted the Assyrians rule.

1) Because their king Abraham left and followed his god orders (his belief in his one god)so he left his city the people started to starve because they ran out of food they went searching for food.
2)(they or he) Wandered the desert for 40 years because they went going to find the 10 commandments god made them.
3)Assyrians put the Israelites into exile because the Israelites wouldn't obey or follow their orders (rules).

2. He went because he was searching for the ten commandments that god made.
3. They wouldn't follow the Assyrians rules.
