1. New Feature: The Great Tartan Disputation
Round One.
Round Two.
Round Three.
Discussion and Queries
Brit-Am Discussions, Criticisms, Remarks, and Debates About Tartan

....After that TG began to write us with renewed energy and some very serious criticisms attacking us about Scottish Tartan and the Coat of Joseph....Nevertheless we decided to answer him and from these answers our important series of Scottish Tartan developed. Through work on this series new perspectives and sources of information were opened to us. ...TG has not let up but keeps coming back with his various arguments some of which are simply silly while others may deserve some kind of answer.

....By reading the following Disputation a deeper understanding of the points involved along with some insight into Brit-Am Methodology may be obtained. Due to the length of correspondence that argumentation with TG involves along with the public interest this has aroused we are now dedicating the following few articles exclusively to TG Debates.

To properly understand the Disputation one should first peruse our article Joseph and the Scottish Tartan
which is the first article in the series "The Scottish Tartan Cloak of Joseph".

The first two rounds of this Disputation are taken from "Brit-Am Now" Postings.
From Round Three onwards they are being posted for the first time.

2. Judah and Joseph Must Acknowledge Each Other!
The Commentary Me'am Loaz has an interesting juxtaposition of quotations concerning this verse:
The Prophet addresses the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin [i.e. the Jews] and tells them to say unto their brothers, meaning the Ten Tribes, "You are my People!" When they did evil in the eyes of the Almighty they were called, "Not My People!" At the Times of the Ingathering of the Exiles say unto them, "You are my People!" (Rabbi Saadia Gaon ca. 882-942).

The verse speaks of the unification of Israel in the future at the time of their Salvation and Redemption. The Prophet calls upon the Ten Tribes to call unto their brothers, descendants of Judah, "You are my People!" For they should no longer say unto them, "You are not my People!"
So too, the Prophet addresses the Children of Judah (the Jews) that they should say regarding the Kingdom of Israel [of the Ten Tribes] who had been called beforehand "Not Shown Mercy" [in Hebrew: "Lo-Ruchamah"] that from now on they should be called "Ruchamah" [Shown Mercy]. The Almighty will have mercy upon them and the Children shall return to their boundary [in the Land of Israel]. (Abarbanel 1437-1508).

Ruhamah" means "having been shown mercy to.

3. Proverbs 23 (New King James Version)

 1 When you sit down to eat with a ruler,
      Consider carefully what is before you;
       2 And put a knife to your throat
      If you are a man given to appetite.
       3 Do not desire his delicacies,
      For they are deceptive food.
       4 Do not overwork to be rich;
      Because of your own understanding, cease!
       5 Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
      For riches certainly make themselves wings;
      They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.
       6 Do not eat the bread of a miser,[a]
      Nor desire his delicacies;
       7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
      "Eat and drink!" he says to you,
      But his heart is not with you.
       8 The morsel you have eaten, you will vomit up,
      And waste your pleasant words.
       9 Do not speak in the hearing of a fool,
      For he will despise the wisdom of your words.
       10 Do not remove the ancient landmark,
      Nor enter the fields of the fatherless;
       11 For their Redeemer is mighty;
      He will plead their cause against you.
       12 Apply your heart to instruction,
      And your ears to words of knowledge.
       13 Do not withhold correction from a child,
      For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die.
       14 You shall beat him with a rod,
      And deliver his soul from hell.[b]
       15 My son, if your heart is wise,
      My heart will rejoice?indeed, I myself;
       16 Yes, my inmost being will rejoice
      When your lips speak right things.
       Do not let your heart envy sinners,
But be zealous for the fear of the LORD all the day;
18 For surely there is a hereafter,
      And your hope will not be cut off.
       19 Hear, my son, and be wise;
      And guide your heart in the way.
       20 Do not mix with winebibbers,
      Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
       21 For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
      And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags.
       22 Listen to your father who begot you,
      And do not despise your mother when she is old.
       23 Buy the truth, and do not sell it,
      Also wisdom and instruction and understanding.
       24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
      And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.
       25 Let your father and your mother be glad,
      And let her who bore you rejoice.
       26 My son, give me your heart,
      And let your eyes observe my ways.
       27 For a harlot is a deep pit,
      And a seductress is a narrow well.
       28 She also lies in wait as for a victim,
      And increases the unfaithful among men.
       29 Who has woe?
      Who has sorrow?
      Who has contentions?
      Who has complaints?
      Who has wounds without cause?
      Who has redness of eyes?
       30 Those who linger long at the wine,
      Those who go in search of mixed wine.
       31 Do not look on the wine when it is red,
      When it sparkles in the cup,
      When it swirls around smoothly;
       32 At the last it bites like a serpent,
      And stings like a viper.
       33 Your eyes will see strange things,
      And your heart will utter perverse things.
       34 Yes, you will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea,
      Or like one who lies at the top of the mast, saying:
       "They have struck me, but I was not hurt;
They have beaten me, but I did not feel it.
When shall I awake, that I may seek another drink?"
