Where are the Lost Tribes of Israel?

Posted by on Jan 7, 2018 in The Exiles

Where are the so-called “lost tribes” of the House of Israel? And are they “lost” at all? The fact is that the Scripture records with a certain clarity the whereabouts of the most of “the lost tribes” during and after the Assyrian invasion. This study will not entertain the notion of the so-called “British Zionism” neither will it ever consider the Replacement Theology. What this study will harbor, however, is that the...

Posted by on Nov 19, 2017 in The Exiles

The law of divorce in Torah in Deu 24:1-4 refers to divorce in which a reunion with a divorced wife is forbidden, only if she had remarried another man who had also put her away or had died.

Who Wrote the Book of Esther?

Posted by on Apr 11, 2017 in The Exiles

Who wrote the Book of Esther? We should notice that throughout the entire Book of Esther, Elohim of Israel is not mentioned neither by His Name, nor by any of His titles.

Posted by on Apr 8, 2017 in The Exiles

Today millions of Jews around the world celebrate Purim as a deliverance from a certain Holocaust, and rightly so.
