Ephraim and Nobility
of the Lost Ten Tribes
The Joseph Aspect
by Yair Davidiy
Biblical Evidence: The Joseph Aspect
The Names "Ephraim" and "Ephrathite" (somebody from Ephraim) connote nobility as remarked upon by the Sages.
<EPHRAIM MY DEAR SON. Rabbi
Yehoshua ben Levi said: [the word Ephraim means] someone who grew up in a palace [i.e.
a noble]. Rabbi Yehoshua ben Nachman
said: [the word Ephraim means] a master and governor. Said Rabbi Pinchas, our forefather Jacob when he passed
away coronated Ephraim with a crown
and made him the head of the tribes, the chief of the assembly, the most handsome and exalted of my descendants
will be called by his name.>> (Midrash YaYikra Rabah 2;3).
This Midrash refers to the fact
that the very name Ephraim connotes nobility (as explained at length in our work Ephraim)
whereas Menasseh connotes representative
Accountable Democracy. Ephraim dominates Britain and Menasseh is prevalent in the USA. Ephraim (nobility,
the aristocratic principle of government)
still prevails in Britain whereas the democratic Principle is paramount in the USA.
See our book, "Ephraim" where we have spoken at great length on this
"IS EPHRAIM MY
DEAR SON? IS HE A PLEASANT CHILD? FOR SINCE I SPAKE AGAINST HIM, I DO
EARNESTLY REMEMBER HIM STILL: THEREFORE MY BOWELS ARE TROUBLED FOR HIM;
I WILL SURELY HAVE MERCY UPON HIM, SAITH THE LORD."
