Hi Yair, I just wanted to offer my two cents on what Bro Bunch wrote in Brit-Am Now #1381. He suggested the nation and company of nations could refer to the Jewish State of Israel and the nations of the lost tribes, respectively. This cannot be right, as this blessing was part of Jacob's birthright passed from Abraham to Isaac to him. He in turn passed it to Joseph, to Manasseh and Ephraim, respectively. They alone received the birthright and therefore blessing to receive the nation and company of nations. The other tribes received the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to a lesser degree. None of them were promised a nation, although several did receive them, especially Reuben, Judah, Dan, and Benjamin. Biblically speaking, however, it is unsustainable to say anyone except Ephraim and Manasseh were recipients of the nation and multitude of nations.================================================
#The concept of a Caucasian race or Varietas Caucasia was developed around 1800 by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, a German scientist and classical anthropologist. Blumenbach named it after the peoples of the Caucasus (from the Caucasus region), whom he considered to be the archetype for the grouping. He based his classification of the Caucasian race primarily on craniology. Blumenbach wrote:
#"Caucasian variety - I have taken the name of this variety from Mount Caucasus, both because its neighborhood, and especially its southern slope, produces the most beautiful race of men, I mean the Georgian; and because all physiological reasons converge to this, that in that region, if anywhere, it seems we ought with the greatest probability to place the autochthones (birth place) of mankind."
