Transcript of The Hebrews—The Jew and His Brothers

Abraham Isaac Jacob Levi Benjamin Judah Dan Naphtali Gad Asher Issachar Zebulun Reuben Simeon Joseph Ephraim & Manasseh THE NATION OF ISRAEL The Southern Kingdom
The House of "Judah" — The "Jews" The House of "Israel" — The "Joes"
The Northern Kingdom Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?

The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk. Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a well; His branches run over the wall. The archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel), By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers. Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; Your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp; From the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?

The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

Binding his donkey to the vine, And his donkey's colt to the choice vine, He washed his garments in wine, And his clothes in the blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine, And his teeth whiter than milk. "I will strengthen the house of Judah,

And I will save the house of Joseph,

And I will bring them back,

Because I have had compassion on them;

And they will be as though I had not rejected them,

For I am Yehowah their God and I will answer them."

— Zechariah 10:6 "Judah" — The House of Judah "Israel" — The House of Israel Abraham was Hebrew, but not a Jew. Isaac had an older brother—from another mother—Ishmael.
But God promised Abraham a seed from Sarah, his wife.
Since it's a promise, not an inheritance, it was given to Isaac. Joseph was the youngest of his brothers, but the promise was passed to him.
When Jacob died, he blessed Joseph's sons Manasseh and Ephraim as his own.
That's why we count them as tribes of Israel with their uncles.
Jacob gave the promise to the younger, Ephraim. Jacob was renamed "Israel" by God.
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were Hebrew, but not Jews.

Even Jacob wasn't an Israelite - but all his descendants are. Esau and Jacob were brothers.
Esau sold his birth right to Jacob for a bowl of soup.
Jacob was also another younger brother to receive the promise. Reuben Simeon Levi Dan Naphtali Gad Asher Issachar Zebulun Joseph Manasseh Ephraim Judah Benjamin Levi “Take one stick, and write upon it,
‘For Judah and for
the children of Israel, his companions.’

Then take another stick and write on it,
‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and
all the house of Israel, his companions.’

And join them one to another into one stick,
and they will become one in your hand."
— Ezekiel 37:17 'It will come about that just as you were a curse among the nations,
O house of Judah and house of Israel,
so I will save you that you may become a blessing.
Do not fear; let your hands be strong.'
— Zechariah 8:13 In those days
the house of Judah will join the house of Israel,
and together they will come from a northern land
to the land I gave your forefathers as an inheritance.
— Jeremiah 3:18

The house of Israel and the house of Judah
have been utterly unfaithful to me...
— Jeremiah 5:11

They have turned back to the iniquities
of their forefathers, who refused to hear my words. They have gone after other gods to serve them.
The house of Israel and the house of Judah
have broken my covenant
that I made with their fathers.
— Jeremiah 11:10

“Behold, the days are coming, declares Yehowah,
when I will fulfill the promise I made to
the house of Israel and the house of Judah.

“Behold, the days are coming, declares Yehowah, when I will sow
the house of Israel and the house of Judah
with the seed of man and the seed of beast.

“Behold, the days are coming, declares Yehowah,
when I will make a new covenant with
the house of Israel and the house of Judah,
— Jeremiah 33:14,27,31 The term Jew came from Judah,
and refers to those who lived in
the Southern kingdom of Judah.
"Jews" were Judeans. Who's a Jew? Paul was from the tribe of Benjamin...
+ a Hebrew
+ a descendant of Abraham
+ an Israelite — from the nation of Israel
+ a Jew — from the kingdom of Judah
+ a Pharisee — a sect of the religion, or Law
— Romans 11:1, Philippians 3:5, Acts 22:5 The House
of Israel The House
of Judah The Twelve Tribes
of the Nation of Israel The Two Kingdoms of
The Nation of Israel The Southern Kingdom
was known as
Judah, The Jews. The Northern Kingdom
was known as
Israel, The Joes. Also known as
Ephraim, Samaria, or
The House of Joseph. Also known as
Children of Israel, or
The House of Judah Asa removed the detestable idols from the whole land of Judah and Benjamin and from the towns he had captured in the hills of Ephraim. He repaired the altar of Yehowah that was in front of the portico of Yehowah’s temple.

Then he assembled all Judah and Benjamin and the people from Ephraim, Manasseh and Simeon who had settled among them, for large numbers had come over to him from Israel when they saw that Yehowah his God was with him. Are all American's Californians?

Are you a Jew, if you're from...
the house of Joseph?
the tribe of Ephraim?
the northern kingdom of Israel?

What is an Israelite?
Are all Israelites Jews?
Were Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob, Israelites?
Where is a Jew from? The twelve tribes formed the nation of Israel.
King David ruled over the united kingdom of Israel.
The kingdom was divided into Israel and Judah. These are the spiritual "children of Israel" Ezekiel speaks of. Does it matter that we recognize the distinctions between Israelites and the Jews? Judah and Israel? The house of Judah and the house of Israel?

When people say that Christians are "spiritual Israel" and thus are the focus of the blessings of the restoration prophecies, are they saying that they are "spiritual Jews" of the house of Judah, or "spiritual Joes" of the house of Joseph? Or do they replace both? The House of Jacob The House
