1. Pastor James PS Templeton: Inspiring message on Elijah
Re: 1 Kings 17:1-7 Elijah and the Ravens
http://www.britam.org/Kings/1Kings17.html

Subject: Thank You

Dear Yair, I am writing to thank you for your inspiring message on Elijah which we greatly appreciated. I am sure it will encourage many to believe nothing happens by chance, and that the Almighty is ruling by providence, and that all things are possible to the Lord. Yours very Sincerely, James Templeton.

 2. Dirik Saemundsson:
Ravens and the Keeping of the Sabbath in Ancient Iceland

Re: 1 Kings 17:1-7 Elijah and the Ravens
http://www.britam.org/Kings/1Kings17.html
Shalom alaichem Yair Davidy,

Thanks for this letter about Elijah and the ravens. For an Icelander it is very simple to believe that they came with the food. So intensely is the raven bounded to the folklore; with the raven as a prophetical bird.
The man that gave Iceland its name (Island) was named Hrafna-Floki (raven-Floki) and had ravens to guide him to the country.

But I have to share my latest findings.
It has been [a source of] discussion and research in my biblical-group about the question of Saturday (laugardagur = bath day) or Sunday. And why do the Icelanders still start the week on Sunday.
The answer is: In Gragas (Gray-goose) our first book of law written down in 1117 by Haflidi Masson the last law-speaker on Althingi (our Knesset) these law were our law until the book Jarnsida (Ironside instruction from 1271-1273) came from the Norway when we lost our independence over to them in 1262-1264.

In Gragas states clearly that The day of the Lord's Day is the 7th day and it is Saturday and after that it come clear instructions about behaviour that day.

And if Torah means an arrow directly towards the aim. What is the sign you will see at the heaven when a flock of gooses is flying over you?

Sincerely

Ingileif

3. The Name Aegel in England as a Place-Name
One of our proofs is that the Hebrew Name Aegel meaning "bull-calf" and a nickname for Ephraim (
Jeremiah 31:18)

http://www.britam.org/Proof/Joseph/joBull.html
was also used in Europe as an alternative for, or another way (as possible in Hebrew) of pronouncing the ethnic term "Angle".
England means Angle-Land and therefore means "Aegel-Land" i.e. Land of Ephraim.

In this connection it is interesting to note the use of the term "Aegel" in English place-names.

The following example applies to the area of Kent and to the name  Ailesford which it is suggested derived from  Aegelesthrep.
This is a specific circumstance in which the term "Aegel" was recalled incidentally.
Examples could not doubt be multiplied from all over England.

The Anglo Saxon Chronicles mentions the place Aegelesthrep.

### which is undoubtedly [now] Aylesford, given the following names recorded over the years: Ailesford (ME), Aegelsford (ME), Aeglesforda (OE), Elesford (A.Nor Domesday 1086 a.d.). I suggest the name is derived from the place 1 mile uphill from here, called Eccles. This would be logical as Eccles was the original church and parish in the area, and Aylesford as a village on the Medway below it would likely have been called Eccles-ford originally or that ford was appended to the current name for Eccles e.g. Aiglessa-ford. It's a short step from here to attested names for Aylesford, of Aeglesforda etc. ###
Regards
Herbie ###

Origin of the name Aylesford
Posted by: "Herbie Blackburn"

Note also:
 From Elesham to Aylsham . . .
## It is thought that Aylshams history dates from around 500AD when a Saxon called Aegel (a common name) set up his homestead here. As Ham means homestead, the new village would have been known as Aegels Ham. ##

4. Question on Order of Encampment and Position of Manasseh
Daniel Mark wrote:
 

Shalom Akhim,
 
As an American Israeli
you may conclude that I am biased in saying the following
 
i believe that
Great Britain is Manasseh
and the USA is Efraim
 
Manasseh is the older brother who aslo became GREAT and part of the BRIT
Ephraim as the younger but more powerful and more blessed nation fits much more neatly with the obvious historical context in which we live
 
i read your reasoning for the reverse order
and i noticed that you missed a significant Biblical pattern that every Israeli in Sinai would have know by heart but which is often ignored or taken for granted today:
 
Yehuda was in the East along with Issachar and Zevulun
 
Reuven was in the South along with Shimaon and Gad
 
Efraim was in the West along with Manasseh and Benjamin
 
Dan was in the North along with Ashair and Naftali
 
 
The order is clear
Efraim would be at 9 oclock
and Manasseh at 10 oclock
the USA is clearly at 9 oclock (Holy Land, Israel, Jerusalem at the center)
Great Britain is 10/11 ish
 
one other consideration to keep in mind is that England and Europe were like caregivers to preAmerican Efraim
so there is a natural attachment to the idea that Efraim originated in Europe (as well as Israel and Egypt)
 
many still covet Efraim's blessing and wish to claim it for themselves
 
i would be interested to read your remarks to each of my statements
 
Shalom Shalom,
Daniel

Brit-Am Reply:
Shalom,
We do not know how much of our quite extensive and detailed reasoning about the identification of Ephraim you really have read.
You make an assertion but answer none of our arguments.
If you read our articles a bit more carefully you will find that the Bible indicated that the younger (Ephraim) would actually achieve his greatness and blessing before the older (Manasseh).

As for your face-of-the-clock parallel, in our book "The Tribes" we illustrate how the actual positioning had the leading Tribe in the middle.
It is true that Scripture lists first Ephraim, then Manasseh, then Benjamin.

[Numbers 2:18] ON THE WEST SIDE SHALL BE THE STANDARD OF THE CAMP OF EPHRAIM ACCORDING TO THEIR ARMIES: AND THE CAPTAIN OF THE SONS OF EPHRAIM SHALL BE ELISHAMA THE SON OF AMMIHUD.                     
  
[Numbers 2:20] AND BY HIM SHALL BE THE TRIBE OF MANASSEH....

[Numbers 2:22] THEN THE TRIBE OF BENJAMIN...

[Numbers 2:24] ALL THAT WERE NUMBERED OF THE CAMP OF EPHRAIM....

Likewise Scripture lists
THE STANDARD OF THE CAMP OF DAN [Numbers 2:25] with Dan, Asher, and Naphtali who all together were numbered IN THE CAMP OF DAN [Numbers 2:31].

Likewise we have:
[Numbers 2:3] AND ON THE EAST SIDE TOWARD THE RISING OF THE SUN SHALL THEY OF THE STANDARD OF THE CAMP OF JUDAH....
with Issachar and Zebulon...who were all  NUMBERED IN THE CAMP OF JUDAH [Numbers 2:9].

 In the camp of Reuben were Simeon and Gad.

The Tribes in their encampment were split up into four groups of three.
Each group of three tribes had one tribe who is mentioned first and with whom the other two tribes are counted.
In "The Tribes" we have shown how the Leading Tribe in each group was situated between the two tribes it was heading.

According tot his Ephraim was the leading Tribe would have been located at 10 o'clock with Manasseh at nine
and Benjamin at 11 o'clock.

5. Spain, Portugal, German Jews and Benjamin.

 In Furtherance of our Article, The Jews of Judah:
A Demographic History.

http://www.britam.org/JewsofJudah.html

Other traditions said that Ashkenazic Jews (especially those of Germany itself or in other versions of Rome or Rumania) came from the Tribe of Benjamin.

It will be remembered that the Population of Judah derived mainly from the Tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi with only representative minorities of the other tribes.
