Asked 3 years ago

If so, was Samaria ever mentioned in the bible?

That depends on who you ask! The Palestinian Authority (and most international governments) don't recognize the term. Israel defines the West Bank area north of Jerusalem as Samaria. It is mentioned in the Old Testament as land captured by the Israelites from the Caananites. Today there are Jewish Israeli cities and Palestinian cities in Samaria which is administered by the Israeli Defence Force.
