Perhaps you didn’t know elephants lived in Israel? I admit, I never really thought about it, but the animals had to pass through there from Ararat to Africa somehow. Anyway, there are two sites mentioned in the article, one near the Golan Heights and the other near Kafr Qasem, about ten miles northeast of Tel Aviv. Why should this matter to Christians?

Here is a fun question to ask if the conversation lags at your next get-together.
Did Abraham really have camels?
In Genesis 12:16 Abraham was given camels by an Egyptian king. “The king was good to Abram because of Sarai, and Abram was given sheep, cattle, donkeys, slaves, and camels.” Later Abraham's servant takes ten camels from his flock and heads out to get his son Isaac a wife. The problem is scholars believe camels were not domesticated in Canaan until much later.
