Keeping Track of the Tribes of Israel… It Would Be So Much Easier…

Standard

It would make it easier to understand if it were the Twelve Tribes of Jacob instead of the Twelve Tribes of Israel (Jacob’s name later became Israel). All the tribes are the descendants of Jacob who ruled over a portion of Canaan territory around 1800 B.C.E. In the Book of Genesis, Jacob was referred to as a lion. That lion became the symbol of the Israelite Tribe of Judah. The Tribe of Judah are the “Jews” but today “Jews” is also used when speaking of “Israelites.”

Genealogy: Is Your Last Name Jacobs?

Standard

How about Jacob, Jacobi or Jacobson? You probably don’t think about it but the ethnic roots of Jacobs go back to ancient Israel. The twelve tribes of Israel are all the descendants of “Jacob,” whose name later became “Israel.” Once you find your Israelite ancestors, you can further your research and try to decipher whether they were Jews or Samarians but they were both Israelites and descended from Jacob who was referred to as a Lion in the Book of Genesis in the Torah/Bible. The lion became the symbol of the Israelite tribe of Judah. Jacob was a big deal.
