Who are the Lost Ten Tribes?
Some very exotic people and locations have been wrongly associated
with those Israelites who were taken captive or who fled their
homes in advance of the Assyrian conquest of Israel in 723 BC.
Where are they?
Many historians and scholars are beginning to uncover the remarkable
trails left by these lost Israelites and have been
amazed at their past and continuing contributions to world history.
How can I know?
You are invited to attend a series of FREE public lectures
to hear two eminent international speakers from the USA, Dr. David
Lewis and Melvin Rhodes, describe the continuing profound impact
on world history of these lost peoples.
A significant new and insightful full-colour booklet, The
Lost 10 Tribes in Prophecy, has been prepared and should be
available at the lectures. This booklet is based on materials
produced by Rick Sherrod, Ph.D., who delivered a lecture series
in Australia last year on this subject.

made available, at no charge also.
