THE LOST TEN TRIBES
of the Lost Ten Tribes

Biblical Geographical Evidence
Isaiah speaks of exiled Israelites
(from Ephraim and the other Tribes) returning by aeroplane and be ships from
over the Atlantic Ocean:
They fly on the clouds in Aeroplanes.
When was it possible for this prophecy to be literally fulfilled before our
ARE THESE THAT FLY AS A CLOUD AND AS THE DOVES TO THEIR WINDOWS?"
The Talmud (Baba Batra 75; b) says:
<<When Israel sins somewhat, they are brought down like a fowl [flying
away], as it says, AS FOR EPHRAIM, THEIR GLORY SHALL FLY AWAY LIKE A BIRD
[Hosea 9:11]. When they gain merit, they are elevated like a cloud, as it
says, WHO ARE THESE THAT FLY AS A CLOUD [Isaiah 60:8].>> So we
see that in at least one place the Talmud speaks of the above verse
in Isaiah (60:8) in connection to Ephraim meaning to the Lost Ten Tribes.
ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR ME, AND THE SHIPS OF TARSHISH FIRST, TO BRING THY SONS
FROM FAR, THEIR SILVER AND THEIR GOLD WITH THEM, UNTO THE NAME OF THE LORD
THY GOD, AND TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, BECAUSE HE HATH GLORIFIED THEE."
<SURELY THE ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR
ME :> Iben Ezra Commentary: For I will give them a good reward.
THE SHIPS OF TARSHISH FIRST: Ships
that plough the Atlantic Ocean bringing people back from America, Britain,
and Western Europe.
the ISLES shall wait for me and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy
sons from far" .
In Psalms (72; 10) "The Kings
of Tarshish and of the ISLES" are mentioned together. The Aramaic Paraphrase
explains that the "Isles" mentioned are those in the "Oceanic Sea" meaning
those of The Atlantic Ocean according to Talmudic commentators [see "ARUCH
HASHALEM" entry "Okyanus", where he says that the Okyanus was usually understood
as being the Atlantic Ocean.]
The Talmud (Hullin 91b) also infers
that Tarshish means the Atlantic Ocean and historically a major city-port
named Tartessos and identified as Tarshish was located on the southwest coast
of Spain. Tartessos-Tarshish at one stage was part of a maritime domain with
probable establishments in Britain and Gaul. A portion of the Exiled Israelites were transported (as we have explained in the Brit-Am Commentary to Amos 4:2) to Spain which at that time was considered as part of Tarshish. These exiles later passed over to Gaul and the British Isles. The Biblical expression "Ships
of Tarshish" means primarily those plying the Atlantic Ocean and therefore
the "ISLES" mentioned in association with Tarshish and Israelites are
those of Britain, America, and the coastline of North and West Europe.
Isaiah chapter two speaks of places in the Land of Israel such as Lebanon, and Bashan. Isiaha 2:16 then recalls "the ships of Tarshish" which the very early Aramaic translation known as Targum Yehonatan explains to mean "dwellers of the Isles of the Sea". We thus see a link between the two expressions. The significance of the Isles of the Sea from a Lost Ten Tribes perspective we have dealt with separately.
Steven Collins informs us that
the great Jewish scholar, archaeologist, linguist, and author Cyrus Gordon
considered the term Tarshish to apply to the American Continent.
