When Jacob (i.e. the Patriarch Israel) blessed Joseph and his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48:3)
he recalled the Blessing he had previously received at Luz (Beth-el). This involved becoming a "Nation and a Company of Nations" (Genesis 35:11). This blessing was to be fulfilled primarily through Ephraim. The Tribe of Ephraim found his expression mainly through the British and offshoots of Britain.
We discuss briefly the British Family of Nations.
In the British Isles: Ireland (Eire), Ulster (North Ireland), Scotland, Wales, England.
The British Overseas are also spoken of:
Ephraimites in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
This is another proof identifying the British with Ephraim.
Why the British are Ephraim!
