Where Are the Lost Ten Tribes?
by IsraelNN Staff
(IsraelNN.com) Historians and Biblical scholars say that King Solomon had a sophisticated navy which voyaged the world in exploration, looking for iron, gold and other materials to build the Holy Temple.
Many shipping ports, settlements and colonies were established in places all over the Mediteranian and North African region, as well as Europe and the Americas. Did some of the 10 tribes of the Northern Kingdom escape on ships to distant lands to escape the Assyrian onslaught and subsequent exile?
In an interview with Israel National Radio's Tamar Yonah, Historian Steve Collins talks about where some of these tribes may have migrated to, including the New World, long before Columbus discovered America.

I hope you are well
Concerning your response to item number 1, with respect, what of the idea that Israel was driven out of the land in the 8th and 6th centuries BC because of its failure to adhere to the covenant? Doesn't this imply that Israel's right to live on the land (as opposed to be in exile from it, while it still ultimately being theirs) is contingent on certain conditions? While I do not deny that the land was given to Israel, it was also given, was it not, with the attachment of certain responsibilities. How is this consideration to be associated with the current 20th/21st century situation, if at all, in your opinion? I write what I write because of the, to me, apparently simplistic sense in which you say that the land was given to Israel. Forgive me if in this I misinterpret you and if you conceal a deeper complexity. I suspect you do. But if it had been given to Israel in such a simplistic sense, then why was Israel even driven into exile?
Pleased with what you read?
