Benjamin son of Rachel was the full-brother of Joseph. Even so, the main portion of Benjamin was destined to be
permanently associated with Judah.
The present-day Jews include many from Benjamin: According to legend, this may apply especially to the Jews of
Germany and/or Rumania. descendants of Benjamin are also to be found amongst the Ten Tribes. We suggested that offshoots from Benjamin were to be found amongst the
Normans and Wallooons (Belgium). Others have claimed for Norway or Scotland which we doubt.
The banner of Benjamin was colored "like all the colors, including the twelve colors, and a wolf was illustrated upon it" (Midrash Bamidbar Rabah 2:7).
The gem stone of Benjamin was a "yashpeh" indentified with the jasper. Some forms of the jasper stone (a variety of Chalcedon) are indeed multi-colored.
