The Hebrews played a vital role in the history of Western civilization. The Hebrews created a kingdom in the ancient land of Canaan. They were known for their monolithic religion, Judaism is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions dating back nearly 4,000 years. Judaism is the root of Christianity and Islam. The best source we have about the ancient Hebrew people is their Bible which was written 400-600 years after the events it describes. Archaeological records supplement what is known about ancient Hebrew people along with the stories in the Hebrew Bible. The first leader of the Hebrews was Abraham who led them away from Mesopotamia around 1900 B.C.E.
