Aren’t all the Twelve Tribes of Israel Jewish?

The Jews of today are made up of the 12 tribes.

Some, in clear contradiction to the Holy Bible, claim that all twelve tribes of Israel are Jewish. These woefully ignorant or deceitful people deny the biblical distinctions between the 12 tribes and pretend that there is only one tribe: Judah.

Jacob-Israel had 12 sounds. Each son became the patriarch of the tribe named after him. For example, there is Judah, whose descendants are Jews. There is also Joseph, whose descendants are Joes. Joseph is not a Jew!

The 12 Tribes of Israel became the nation of Israel which later split into two: Joseph was the leader of the Northern Kingdom with its 10 tribes, the capital Samaria, and Judah was the leader of the Southern Kingdom, the capital Jerusalem.

The northern kingdom of Israel was defeated and deported by the Assyrians 130 years before the southern kingdom of Judah was defeated and deported by the Babylonians! Two separate kingdoms with separate tribes. The Northern Kingdom of Israel became known as the “Ten Lost Tribes”. Jews continued to be known as Jews (including exceptions between them to the general rule of relatively few Israelites residing with them).

The first time in the Bible that the words “Jews” are used is when the Northern Kingdom of Israel allied itself with Syria. against the Jews! This is important to note as some deny these great distinctions! The Joes are not and never were Jewish! They are Joe!

2 Kings 16:5-6

5 Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel went up to Jerusalem to war: and besieged Ahaz [king of Judah]but could not beat him.

6 At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath in Syria, and expel the Jews from Elat: and the Syrians came to Elat, and have dwelt there to this day.

Further proof that there are TWELVE TRIBES and not just the Jews/Judah can be found in the various blessings of the 12 Tribes by Jacob (Genesis 48-49) and later by Moses (Deuteronomy 32). They are addressed to each of the 12 Tribes of Israel and not just Judah! The Ten Lost Tribes” are not Jews.

The High Priest had 12 precious stones representing the 12 Tribes of Israel, not just one stone on his breastplate, and he carried two stones on his shoulder with six tribal names on one stone and six tribal names on the other (Exodus 28).

The Promised Land of Israel was divided among the 12 tribes of Israel, as any biblical map will clearly reveal, not just a great inheritance for Judah!

Ezekiel 47-48 reveals a future division of the Land of Israel back into the 12 Tribes. The New Jerusalem mentions 12 tribes, not just Judah (Revelation 21:12)

Those who dare to deny these God-given distinctions mentioned in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, claim that the 12 Tribes of Israel have merged into the one tribe of Judah, denying the distinct Biblical prophecies for each of the separate tribes.

Some Jews have a haughty attitude against other tribes, even against some Jews, and reject the “prodigal son” and would disinherit them contrary to the Word and Will of God:

Ezekiel 11:15

15 “Son of man, your brothers, your relatives, your brothers, and the whole house of Israel in its entirety, are they of whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, ‘Depart from the LORD; this land has been given to us to possess.

They want gentilized Israelites to remain lost and alienated, feeling smug and exclusive, instead of recognizing that they are only a small part of the Chosen People, the Servant Nation, and must seek reconciliation, our family reunion, not more alienation.

Those who claim that the 12 Tribes are now with Judah speak against the Law and the Prophets who reveal otherwise, as the Law declares to the People (I am Israel, the Nation or the People of Israel – all 12 Tribes) will be restored under the King Messiah, and the Prophets speak of two branches depicting the two main tribes of Joseph and Judah being reconciled and reunited.

Conclusive proof that Joseph and Judah are still separate and unique identities and tribes:

Ezekiel 37:15-22

15The word of the LORD came to me, saying,

16 Also, son of man, take a stick, and write about it for Judah, and for the children of Israel their companions: then take another stick, and write about it For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions:

17And join them one to another into one stick; and they will be one in your hand [they’re two sticks, separate but brought together and joined by God].

18 And when the sons of your people speak to you, saying, Will you not teach us what you think by this?

19 Tell them: Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the joseph stickwhich is in the hands of Ephraim and of the tribes of Israel his companions, and he will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in my hand.

20 And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes.

21 And say to them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from every side, and bring them to their own land.

22And I will make them a nation in the land on the mountains of Israel; and a king will be king for all of them; and they will never again be two nations, nor will they ever again be divided into two kingdoms [which division still remains to this day until the restoration of all things].

Some Jews deny that Joes are Israelis, and some Joes deny that Judah is legitimate, accusing them of being Khazarian converts and unworthy of the Jewish homeland. I refute both hateful teachings with the plain truth of the Bible.

In Judaism, there is a concept, “Ma’ase Avot, Siman L’Banim”, the works of the fathers are guides for the children. The actions of the ancestors are reflected in the lives of their descendants.

Joseph and Judah fought before and don’t always see eye to eye today. Joseph’s brothers were blind to his identity. and Joseph was a world ruler who fed the nations. Some still do not recognize Joseph as the Anglo-Saxons or perceive that Joseph represented Yeshua the Pierced One, but in God’s good time all will be revealed beyond any shadow of a doubt.
