To me, it seems a great loss to bury the Jewish histories of large-scale religious conversion and the true stories of origins in other ancient lands and tribal migrations. That would be true history, much more interesting than the improbable, received mythology. The derivative Christian religions kept select old books from Judaism and indeed used the old stories to support the seizure of lands of other unworthy "Canaanites", but in that process the colonizers kept a sense of being merely symbolic "Israelites", recognizing the while that they came from specific nations in Europe. In Palestine, we have a land seizure based upon the bible, but at pains not to identify the natives as even make-believe, "Canaanites".
