Hobart W Freeman 3


There has been much speculation as to where biblical Tarshish is located. Nearly 20 years ago I heard Jack Van Impe suggest that it was Great Britain. Hobart W Freeman of the glory Barn also thought it was Great Britain. But as you can see on the map, Tarshish is located in southern Spain. This is where Jonah wanted to go to flee from the Lord in Jonah 1:3. It had to be in a direct line between Joppa and Tarshish across the Mediterranean Sea. The passage in question which brings all this up is from the prophet Ezekiel chapter 38.

To Jack Van Impe and Hobart W Freeman they speculated that Tarshish was Great Britain and her Young Lions the United States, Canada, and Australia. However, the Hebrew lexicon which defines the Hebrew language suggests that Tarshish is also in southern Spain as our map suggested. Both the Hebrew lexicon and the map geographically place Tarshish in southern Spain. I will take those two sources over that of speculation any day of the week. Of late. David C Pack of the Restored Church of God backs Herbert W Freeman and the worldwide Church of God in their assessment that Tarshish is Great Britain. They have no biblical evidence to support that view. In the end, it all comes down to whether you believe biblical evidence over that of speculation. Which is it to be?

Oops! I spoke too soon again. Just like when I equated the Roman Catholic catechism to Scripture. Another one of my many boo-boos!
