Genealogy: Do You Have an Isaiah in Your Family Tree?

Standard

Many people believe that Isaiah was the greatest prophet of biblical history. Also seen as Esaias, the name means “salvation of the Lord.” Isaiah’s prophecies will be forever tied to Jerusalem. He foresaw the destruction of Jerusalem and Judah but believed that a righteous remnant would persevere. Jesus is recorded (book of Luke) reading Isaiah (Esaias) writings. Perhaps it is Isaiah’s promise to Gentiles that they will participate in the spiritual inheritance of Israel that has today a strong Christian presence in Jerusalem.

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: Have the Name Lion, Lyon, Leo, Leon, Leonard or Lionel in Your Family Tree?

Standard

Lions, lions everywhere… no kidding. People love lions. The ancient Jews loved lions. Jacob, one of the patriarchs of the Jews was referred to as a lion in the Book of Genesis. The lion became the symbol of the Israelite tribe of Jacob’s son Judah so Judah also signifies lion. In times of antiquity, a Jewish man could sign documents as either “Judah” or “Lion.” Eventually Lion became a surname. Leo and Leon are Latin names that mean lion, Leonard is Greek and means “strong or brave as a lion” and Lionel is a French name that means “young lion.” Having one of these lion names certainly does not make one Jewish but I would not rule it out.

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.

The Exodus, Canaan, Egypt & All That … Simplified

Standard

Moses was the guy who well over a thousand years ago led the Israelites out of Egypt and not to the “Promised Land” of Canaan but to a hill overlooking it. The Israelites leaving Egypt is called the “Exodus.” Canaan was the Israelites’ “Land of Milk and Honey” which they believed was their destiny through a Biblical prophecy.
