1. Question on the Mistaken Use of the term "Jew" for Ten Tribe Israelites

"Murray Peat" wrote:
 

Dear Yair Davidy,
 
My friend Sha'ul Ben Yaakov has given me your email. Perhaps you can help me. I have a question.
 Can you please find out for me what year in history did Jews/Judeans start including the other 10 tribes of Israel in the name Jew/Judean?
It wasn't during the divided kingdom (when Jews/Judeans were only from Judea). Did it happen during the Maccabees or after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD or later?
 
Shalom,
Murray

Brit-Am Reply:
 

As far as I know the other 10 tribes of Israel are never really included in the name Jew/Judean.

By "the other 10 tribes of Israel" you obviously mean the Lost Ten Tribes.
The term Jew/Judean means someone belonging to Judah which was the southern Kingdom ruled over the House of David.
The Kingdom of Judah included the Tribes of Judah, Benjamin, Levi, and minority proportions of all the other tribes.
See the article by Nachmanides for a more complete explanation:
The Ten Tribes are still in Exile but will Return
http://www.britam.org/Nachmanides.html
In the Bible Judah is sometimes referred to as "Israel".
It later happened that in popular consciousness the terms "Judah" and Israel were used interchangeably.
The Ten Tribes are mistakenly referred to as "Lost Jews" whereas in fact they are Lost Israelites
but not Jews.
Gentile writers make this mistake just as much as, if not more than, Jews do.

Reply the article was taken from an URL of Christian Jews but originally it had been posted on Israel
National News.
The article discusses the possibility that some Palestinians may be of Jewish Descent.

This is the article.
 

Arabs of Jewish Descent in Israel

by Hillel Fendel 
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/132800
Extract:

 

Up to 85 percent of Arabs in greater Israel stem from Jewish ancestors, it is estimated. Some of them want to become fully Jewish, but most are scared to even talk about it.

"In our search for the lost Ten Tribes in India and Afghanistan, we seem to have forgotten to look for their descendants in our very own backyard." So says the narrator in a new film about the efforts of a former hi-tech pioneer named
Tzvi MiSinai to search out the Jewish roots of Israel's Arab enemies  and to inform them of their Judaic heritage.


-End of Extract.

===============================================
================================================
Remarks:
We have written about this in the past.
There may be some truth in it but in our opinion ONLY TO A VERY SMALL EXTENT.
The idea has been around for a long time.
Lately it seems to have suddenly gained in popularity.
Hillel Fendel  who wrote the above article is a friend of ours and a good man whose articles are always worth reading.
Some of the other advocates of this notion however may well have a left-wing anti-Jewish agenda.

3.  The Brit-Am "Not Levites?" Message and Reactions

================================================
================================================
(a) The "Not Levites?" Message
[Deuteronomy 12:19] TAKE HEED TO THYSELF THAT THOU FORSAKE NOT THE LEVITE AS LONG AS THOU LIVEST UPON THE EARTH.   
The Levite was the guardian and the teacher. One tenth of all produce had to be set aside for the Levite. When Jeroboam from the Ten Tribes lead the break-away from Judah he set up two golden bull-calves and appointed non-Levites as priests. Consequently the Levites from all Israel moved to Judah (2-Chronicles 11:13-14).
 
The Brit-Am Movement is directed by our humble selves.
We do not consider ourselves Levis though we may be and in the past a strong early supporter of ours had an insight that we were or at least that our status was that of a Levi.
Anyway the Principle remains.
We are not priests or rabbis.
We do not really minister to you.
If any of you have personal issues or queries we are not amongst those you can refer to.  
We also cannot teach you how to behave in specific matters.
What good then are we?
 
The Brit-Am Ten Tribes Movement can with a reasonable degree of certainty tell you who your ancestors were.
We can inform what at a communal national level your Biblical Identity is.
We can help enhance and intensify your Biblical Consciousness and Israelite Hebraic Awareness and prepare the groundwork for the same to apply across the nation.
In the Long Run this service of ours may be worth far more than anything else.
We are doing something.
We ourselves benefit from it and so can you.
Divine Providence has so ordered matters that the Brit-Am Movement is in need of your support, financially.
We might have preferred that this not be the case but such it is.
The requirement is made of you to step forward and do what you can.
Do not forsake us.

(b) Ron MacDonald: beyond a dumb donkey?

"...Would that all the LORD's people were prophets, that the LORD put His spirit upon them!" Num 11:29b

"But ye shall be named the priests of the LORD, men shall call you the ministers of our God;..." Is 61:6a


But you who would rebuild the ancient ruins, are you not infinitely beyond a dumb donkey that can obey, reveal and instruct, not by birth or tribe, but by anointing? cf Nu 22:28
