This study has been released as a four-book set
chronologically tracing the origins, history, migrations and empires of the
tribes of Israel. Their locations in the modern world are also identified. Most
modern history texts examine ancient history ethnocentrically from the
viewpoints of ancient Rome and Greece. This has led to a warped view of history
as the ancient propaganda of Greek and Roman tyrants has been uncritically
accepted as a correct accounting of history. My four book series examines world
history from the standpoint of the tribes of Israel, most particularly, the
supposedly "lost" ten tribes of Israel. All of these four books
combine biblical accounts and secular histories in their narratives about the
Israelite tribes. While based on my original book, The "Lost" Ten
Tribes of Israel...Found! - the new books will include much new historical
information as well as photographs, illustrations and maps not found in my first
book. All books will have full indexes. Much of the new information was gained
when I was allowed access to an extensive private library that housed many rare
books offering new perspectives and information about the Israelite tribes in
history. Some of these original books date to the 1600s and 1700s.
My new books tale no positions for or against any Christian denominations or
organizations. People of all Christian organizations will find them to
interesting and supportive of their faith in a literal understanding of the
Here are the topical descriptions of each book:
THE ORIGINS AND EMPIRE OF ANCIENT ISRAEL
begins with the call of Abraham and the elements of the unconditional Covenant
which God made with Abraham and his descendants. It examines the interpersonal
dynamics of the families of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the ancient culture
within which they lived and built relationships with God. Modern readers will
encounter several surprises as these Patriarchal families are discussed. The
family of Jacob and his twelve sons, the progenitors of the tribes of Israel,
is examined in depth, and the insights about their successes and dysfunctional
qualities offer guidance for locating and identifying their descendants from
that time forward.
Physical evidence of the Israelites' being a slave people in Egypt is
presented, and evidence that the names of several biblical personalities was
preserved in an often-overlooked historical source. Strong evidence is also
presented that the real Mt. Horeb, on which Moses and the Israelites received
the Torah and made a covenant with God, is not in Egypt's Sinai desert, but
rather in another location identified both in the Bible and by physical
evidence existing to this day.
The role of the Israelite tribes in the ancient Sea Peoples is shown to
parallel accounts about them in the book of Judges. This book then reveals new
information about King David, the warrior king who united the tribes of
Israel, made lasting alliances with Tyre and Sidon, and built an Israelite
Empire. Both the Bible and secular history contain evidence that David's
forces crushed the Assyrian Empire (which fueled Assyria's desire for revenge
upon Israel in later centuries). Greek historians discussed much about the
power of the Phoenician Empire from about 1100-700 B.C., and they identified
the land of Israel as being part of the homeland of Phoenicia's Empire. Much
evidence is offered that the Phoenician Empire was, in fact, the Empire of
Israel and its allies from Tyre and Sidon. King Solomon then presided over a
Golden Age of scientific learning and global exploration that was made
possible by the world dominance of the Phoenician Empire led by Israel. The
"birthright" and "sceptre" promises, made to the tribes of Joseph and Judah,
respectively, reached an ancient apex at that time. This Golden Age was short
and began to fade as Solomon abandoned God and turned to idols in his old age.
The critical ethnic and historical difference between "Israel" and "Judah" is
made clear in this book. Unless modern Christians understand this critical
difference, they cannot possibly understand either the history of the
Israelite tribes or future prophecies about them. Israel and Judah were not
tiny, shepherd kingdoms clinging to an existence on the coast of the Eastern
Mediterranean Sea. This book documents that the Israelites were not only major
players in ancient history, but actually became the leading power on earth
under Kings David and Solomon. Their power was so extensive that it was
recorded in the ancient histories of India. When the it is realized that the
Israelite tribes had major roles in that ancient time, it becomes easier for
the reader to understand that the ten tribes have also had major roles in the
world's geopolitics from that time forward.
ISRAEL'S LOST COLONIES
More information is
presented documenting the worldwide scope of the Israelite/Phoenician Empire.
Hebrew/Phoenician artifacts and inscriptions have been documented widely in
North America, but these facts have been suppressed by a modern world that is
devoted to evolutionary fables instead of historical truths that support the
Bible. This book will offer readers the truth about the extensive navigational
and maritime skills of the ancient Israelites and Phoenicians, and it reveals
their worldwide reach. The Israelite/Phoenicians established a network of
colonies throughout the Mediterranean Sea, in Western Europe, the British
Isles and North America. Considerable new evidence is offered to document the
extent to which they explored North America in a search for metals and raw
materials to meet the need for Solomon's Temple for God and his other
gargantuan, building projects.
After Israel's ten tribes relocated elsewhere, their "free" descendants build
two new empires. The ancient Greeks and Romans wrote a great deal about both
of the new Israelite empires, but modern texts have almost completely deleted
their histories from modern textbooks. This deletion has hidden and obscured
the major role of the ten tribes of Israel in all periods of world history.
The first major new Israelite Empire was called "Carthage" by the Romans.
Unlike the land-bound Greeks and Romans, Carthage built a maritime, commercial
empire linking its colonies on several continents. Carthage's language and
culture was based on its Hebrew origins. Many Carthaginian (i.e. "Punic")
inscriptions confirm their presence in the ancient Americas and their
connections with Meso-American cultures is also documented. The interaction of
Old World civilizations with ancient New World cultures (and specific American
Indian tribes) is periodically examined.
Carthage long warred against Greece and Rome, dominating Rome for centuries.
The true history of the Punic Wars are detailed in this book, including an
observation that it was likely God's intervention which prevented the
Carthaginian General, Hannibal, from completely conquering Rome. If Carthage
had annihilated Rome, as almost happened during the Second Punic War, Rome
could not have risen to fulfill biblical prophecies about it. Carthage was a
huge city, the richest in the ancient world at that time. Where did its
population flee before the Romans finally conquered Carthage?
Simultaneous with the rise of Carthage to power in the Mediterranean world,
another new power rose to prominence in Asia. This new power was Scythia, and
its tribes were named the Sacae. The term "Sacae" preserves the name of the
Hebrew Patriarch, Isaac, fulfilling God's promise in Genesis 21:12 that
Isaac's name would be placed on Abraham's "birthright" descendants. Scythia's
Israelite origin is extensively documented. The names of many Israelite tribes
and clans are present and identifiable among the Sacae tribes. The Scythians
also renamed all of the rivers emptying into the Black Sea, giving each one a
name based on the name of the Israelite tribe of Dan. The Scythians were
located to the north of the Medo-Persian Empire and twice crushed huge Persian
armies that invaded Scythia. The Scythians are mentioned in both the Old and
New Testaments, but they are called by their Greek name ("Scythia") only in
the New Testament. The Greeks wrote extensively about the Scythians, but
modern texts have almost entirely censored this ancient power out of the
PARTHIA: THE FORGOTTEN ANCIENT SUPERPOWER
This book details the history of the greatest Israelite empire in the
post-exilic period: Parthia. Even Roman writers acknowledged it was the equal of
the Roman Empire. In fact, its forces frequently defeated Roman armies in many
wars, and Parthia was the only empire that Rome actually feared. Just decades
before the birth of Christ, its armies drove the Romans completely out of
Palestine, Syria and Asia Minor, forcing the reigning King Herod to flee for his
life. This ancient superpower rival of Rome that lasted for half a millennium
was the Parthian Empire. Its Semitic/Israelite origins are well documented as
well as the fact that its single dynasty was descended from King David. The
Parthian Empire rose to power as Carthage fell, and the names of Israelite
tribes and clans are in evidence within the Parthian Empire. Parthia's first
capital city was named after "Isaac." Josephus, the famous Jewish
historian, records that the ten tribes were a very numerous people in Asia and
he identifies them as living in Parthia's empire. Secular histories have long
acknowledged the Parthians were related to the Scythian tribes, and Scythian
"Sacae" tribes often assisted the Parthians in their wars against
Greece and Rome. The reason for Parthia's omission from history texts is clear:
If its origins and histories were examined in any detail, its Israelite origins
would become obvious. That would confer great credibility on the Bible and its
prophecies about the Israelites, and evidence leading to such conclusions is
simply omitted from modern, evolutionary-based history books. Parthia and Rome
fought battles that were among the largest and most pivotal ever fought in the
ancient world. The Roman Triumvir, Crassus, met an ignominious death fighting
the Parthians and Mark Antony led a large army into Parthia, but was driven out
and barely escaped with his life.
Parthia was governed by the feudal system that later resurfaced in Europe. Its
Emperors were elected by Parthian elites from the royal dynasty, and it even
offered "home-rule" to some of its larger cities. While Rome's
rulership was harsh and oppressive, Parthia's was enlightened and much wiser.
Nations sometimes fought Roman armies in order to be part of the Parthian Empire
instead of the Roman Empire. The Parthian and Roman Empires waged epic wars, had
"summit conferences" between their emperors and even had a period of
"detente" during which Jesus Christ lived his entire life.
Some of the events of Jesus Christ's life become more understandable when they
are examined in light of the politics that prevailed between Rome and Parthia at
that time. One group of the Parthian elites that chose Parthia's emperors was
called the "Magi" or "Wise Men." A delegation of these high
Parthian officials worshipped the young Jesus Christ.
How many Magi were there? Why did the arrival of these high Parthian officials
in Jerusalem frighten King Herod and the entire city, as Matthew 2:3 asserts?
This book documents the real size of the immense caravan of Parthians that
accompanied the Magi to visit Jesus when he was a child, and why the Magi's
visit almost led to a major Parthian-Roman war. The Roman rulers of Judea were
well aware of Parthia's interest in Jesus Christ, and some accounts in the
Gospels "come alive" in a new way when this fact is taken into
account. The critical role of Joseph of Arimathea in the life of Jesus Christ is
examined, as is evidence of where Jesus Christ was and what he was doing during
the "missing eighteen years" of his life that are not discussed in the
Parthia sat astride the trade routes between Europe and the Orient, and they
prospered in this position. This book includes information about events between
the Parthians and the Chinese along the eastern edge of Parthia's border.
Parthian technology and society was much more developed than many have thought.
Readers will find it a startling surprise to learn the Parthians had developed a
rudimentary form of a modern technology that was not reinvented until the modern
Industrial Revolution! [You will have to read the book to learn which
After Parthia defeated the Roman Empire in an immense war in the 3rd century BC,
it was overthrown by the Persians who had been Parthian subjects for centuries.
The Persians drove the Semitic Parthians out of Asia, and their destination is
detailed in the final book in the series.
ISRAEL'S LOST TRIBES TODAY
When Parthia fell, it triggered one of the greatest migrations of people in
human history. Many Semitic nations and tribes that had lived in the Parthian
Empire for centuries fled out of Asia into Europe in search of new homelands.
This migration took centuries to fully accomplish. This mass Semitic migration
is known to historians as the Caucasian migration into Europe. It was given that
name because the many millions of Parthian and Scythian refugees fleeing Asia
squeezed through the Caucasus Mountain region, hence the name
"Caucasian." Parthian nations and tribes which bore such names as the
Sacae, the Kermans (Germanii), the Getae and the Jats became known as the
Saxons, Germans, Goths and Jutes when they invaded Europe. They also
transplanted Parthia's feudal system of government into Europe. The mass
invasions of these "barbarians," as the Romans called them, eventually
led to the complete fall of the Roman Empire. Secular histories long ago
documented the above facts, but they have usually been deleted from historical
accounts because modern evolutionary historians are uncomfortable with the
One Scythian/Gothic tribe, the Vandals, migrated westward across Europe and then
crossed the Mediterranean Sea into Africa. After making ancient Carthage their
base, their fleets controlled the Mediterranean Sea and they conquered and
"sacked" Rome. Then, the Vandals disappeared from Old World accounts.
These books offer a solution concerning the final refuge of this maritime tribe.
Our popular versions of the fall of the Roman Empire are quite different than
what actually occurred. Most of the Goths were already Christians when they
poured into Europe from Asia, and secular records indicate the Gothic conquerors
of Rome actually "civilized" the Romans.
The invading Semitic Caucasians eventually conquered Europe and formed the
population base of the modern European nations as well as other nations (i.e.
the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) settled by Europeans.
These nations rose to world prominence, amassing the dominant share of the
world's power, resources, wealth, etc. Was this all an historical accident...or
was a divine purpose being worked out? The Bible prophesies in many places that
all the tribes of Israel will be present on earth in a climactic period called
the "latter days." Genesis 49 offers specific clues and prophecies
about the latter-day role and condition of each of the tribes of Israel. The
Book of Hosea prophesied that the ten tribes of Israel would become very
numerous after they left Palestine, and other biblical prophecies assert the
so-called "lost ten tribes of Israel" will be large and powerful
nations on the earth in the latter-days. The Bible especially foretells that the
brother tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, the "birthright" tribes who
were destined to receive most of the earth's blessings of wealth and power, were
to compose a "nation and company (or group) of nations. Judah was also
prophesied to again establish a new (and militarily strong) nation in Palestine
during the "latter days." Both prophecies have been fulfilled. This
book reveals the clear evidence that the nations of the ten tribes of Israel are
to be found among the dominant and powerful nations of the earth, exactly as the
Bible prophesied. All the tribes of Israel are identified in the modern world.
Reading these four books will increase your understanding of both ancient and
modern history and your outlook will never again be the same. Most importantly,
you will understand that a divine plan is being worked out among the nations,
and that the God of the Bible is active in world affairs even today!
