Japhetic is a term that refers to the supposed descendants of Japheth, one of the three sons of Noah in the Bible. Japheth (ˈdʒeɪfɪθ Hebrew. יפת Greek Ιάφεθ, Iapheth, Latin Iafeth or Iapetus Arabic يافث The Table of Nations or Sons of Noah is an extensive list of descendants of Noah appearing within the Torah at Genesis 10 representing Etymology According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the word bible is from Latin biblia, traced from the same word through Medieval Latin and Late Latin It corresponds to Semitic (descendants of Shem) and Hamitic (descendants of Ham). In Linguistics and Ethnology, Semitic (from the Biblical " Shem " Hebrew שם translated as "name" Arabic: ساميّ Shem (; Greek: Σημ, Sēm; Arabic: ar سام; Ge'ez: ሴም Sēm; "renown prosperity name" Hamitic is an obsolete ethno-linguistic classification of some Ethnic groups within the Afro-Asiatic (previously termed "Hamito-Semitic" language family Ham (; Greek Χαμ, Cham; Arabic: ar حام, xam, "hot" according to the Table of Nations in Genesis, was a Variations of the term include Japhetite and Japhethitic.
Traditionally, Japheth has been understood to be the progenitor of the peoples of Europe. Thus "Japhetic" came to be used as a synonym for Europeans. In medieval Europe, the world was understood to have been divided into three large-scale racial groupings. In addition to the Japhetic peoples of Europe, the Semitic peoples were equated with all Asians, and Hamitic peoples with Africans.
The link between Japheth and the Europeans is reflected in Genesis 10:5, which states that the sons of Japheth moved to the "isles of the Gentiles" — commonly believed to be the Greek isles, while others claim them to be the British Isles. The term Gentile (from Latin, gentilis, meaning of or belonging to a clan or tribe refers to non- Israelite tribes or nations in the Bible.

In the Bible, Japheth is ascribed seven sons and seven grandsons:
The intended ethnic identity of these 'descendants of Japheth' is not certain; however, over history, they have been identified by Biblical scholars with various historical nations who were deemed to be descendants of Japheth and his sons — a practice dating back at least to the classical encounters of Jew with Hellene, for example in Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, I. Gomer ( גֹּמֶר, Standard Hebrew Gómer, Tiberian Hebrew Gōmer, go'mer) is the eldest son of Japheth, and father Ashkenaz is Gomer 's first son brother of Riphath, and Togarmah (Gen Riphath (ree-fath- a crusher Gomer 's second son (Gen 103 1 Chronicles 16 supposed to have been the ancestor of the Paphlagonia.

According to the Zend Avesta and sacred texts of the Zoroastrian faith, the Aryan race had their earliest homeland in a legendary place called "Airyanem Vaejah". The Avesta is the primary collection of sacred texts of Zoroastrianism, composed in the Avestan language.

The Bundahishn, meaning "Primal Creation" is an account of Zoroastrian cosmogony and cosmology and reflects ancient Zoroastrian and even pre-Zoroastrian beliefs However, in the 20th century, certain agencies went to extraordinary lengths to assert the sole acceptance of the Soviet hypothesis that the Aryan peoples had entered the Iranian plateau from the Northeast, ie. from the opposite direction as Mount Ararat, despite a lack of any hard evidence for this conjecture. The result is that the Zoroastrian traditions of having originated in the Northwest of Iran and spreading out from there, have rarely been mentioned in post-Soviet scholarship.
