    I was reading the bible since I have a lot of time, and I was wondering whether or not people in the bible are different races since the bible makes no mention of the race of everyone in it.

    So my question is what race do you think people in the bible are?

    NOTE:I'm impartial on this, and not suggesting any kind of racial supremacy.....

    Most of the cast of characters came from the Middle East but some came from Africa. You can decide what races they were 2-8,000 years ago.

    Well everyone didn't migrate to other countries as much as they do now so the races could've been drastically different than they are now

    Read the Bible again. There was a great deal of migration.

    I think this is a relatively irrelevant question...the Bible wasn't created to determine the races of the peoples within it... 😕

    In addition, it depends greatly on which portions of the Bible you are referencing...especially distinguish between the NT and OT.

    They were IN the Middle East, and the story primarily takes place there. There were plenty of nomads, people traveling from here to there, wars and displacement, people moving for economic reasons, etc. If I remember correctly, the wife of Moses was African as was Simon of Cyrene. I'm remembering this off the top of my head though.
