Throughout the Bible we frequently see the terms house, nation and family used in relation to the children of Israel. It never changes, even in the New Testament it does not come believers or a spiritual Israel as denominational churches will insist. Christ himself explicitly stated: “I come only for the Lost Sheep of the house of Israel.” Note here that a house is referring to a family. Therefore if Christ had only come for the family of Israel, every over statement he made throughout his ministry must line up, be consistent and interpreted through this statement. When Christs says “Anyone” or “All who believe” it must be within the scope of the family of Israel. In other words any from the children of Israel who believe. If not Christ’s would be contradicting himself as he would have come for other people besides only the house of Israel. Few people consider these implications. Of course Paul quoting Isaiah, in Romans explains that: “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” Ultimately every Israelite in this life or the next, they will bow and they will believe in Christ in the end.

The Israelites were prophesied to get stronger and more powerful the further away they traveled from the land of Canaan. Meaning the new Nations they would build, would become even greater than the previous kingdom of Israel, which was at it’s height during Kind David and Solomon’s time. After the Assyrian deportations, the Greeks under Alexander formed a greater Empire than the former kingdom of Israel. Then later, the Roman Empire became even mightier than Alexander’s Empire. Later the European Nations which formed from the Germanic tribes, all had their turns in becoming great colonial Empires, which stretched across the entire world. Such as the Portuguese, Spanish, French and Dutch Empires. Then Britain a small island, came to grow and exceed all previous Empires. Finally America became the most powerful Empire ever to exist, generally referred to as a “super power,” as it dominated the entire world. If we read the prophecies this is exactly what we would expect to happen to the children of Israel dispersing and forming new nations getting stronger and stronger, the further they traveled. No other race of people has fulfilled this, neither have they formed great powerful nations. Obviously the Europeans are the people of the Bible.
Malachi, the last Old Testament prophet, gives a bleak picture of the Levitical Priesthood during his time, five hundred years before Christ. The priesthood had corrupted itself through race-mixing with the surrounding peoples. Prior to Malachi, the prophets Nehemiah and Ezra had already tried to stop race-mixing. Nehemiah had read the law and commanded both priests and people to cast off their mixed-race wives and families: “On that day the Book of Moses was read aloud in the hearing of the people and there it was found written that no Ammonite or Moabite should ever be admitted into the assembly of God…When the people heard this law, they excluded from Israel all who were of foreign descent.”
Throughout the Gospels, Christ used many allegories and metaphors to describe and distinguish His people from the infiltrators and devils that He warned us to beware of. In virtually all these teachings, everything good and positive is associated with something white, golden, or shining bright or brassy. Everything bad, negative, and evil is associated with blackness or darkness. For example, He refers to His people allegorically as “the salt (which is white or light colored) of the earth,” “the light of the world,” and “being white for harvest.” He uses comparisons such as “sheep and goats” and “wheat and tares.” The sheep and the wheat are generally white or gold, but nevertheless, they can be difficult to distinguish from the goats and the tares (the infiltrators) which can also be light-colored. Furthermore, the kingdom of heaven was likened to leaven hidden in flour. Lastly, the angel at the tomb of Christ whose “countenance was like lightning” and “raiment white as snow” must have been white. Angels throughout scripture are indistinguishable from men, thus the men of Judea must have been white as well.
There have been many thousands of Mesopotamian inscriptions which have been discovered since the expansion of the British Empire helped to open the Near East to European archaeologists in the 19th century. While not all of them have even yet been deciphered, translations of thousands of such inscriptions have been made, and many volumes of those translations have been published. One significant publication is the Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament (ANET), edited by James B. Pritchard and published by Princeton University Press.
The earliest Greek writers describe the Hellenes (Greeks) as four distinct tribes, each with their own Greek dialects and subdialects: the Ionians, Aeolians, Danaans, and Dorians. Later Greek tribes came from these four. The Ionians were Javan, from Japheth, whilst the other three were Israelites. Most likely, the Aeolians came from the Israelite Phoenicians (which we’ll cover in the next Proof).
Diodorus Siculus, the first-century BC Greek historian, gave an account of the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt but from the Egyptian point of view: “The aliens [Israelites] were driven from the country [Egypt], and the most outstanding and active among them banded together and, as some say, were cast ashore in Greece and certain other regions; their leaders were notable men, chief among them being Danaus and Cadmus. But the greater number were driven into what is now called Judaea…The colony was headed by a man called Moses, outstanding both for his wisdom and for his courage” (Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, 40.3.1-3).
Of all the Apostles, Paul was personally chosen by Christ to spread the gospel to the dispersed children of Israel in Europe. Paul’s mission was revealed in Acts Chapter 9: “But the Prince said to him ‘Go! For he is a vessel chosen by Me who is to bear My Name before both the Nations and kings of the sons of Israel….’” Acts 9:15 CNT. This verse is often mistranslated as “the Gentiles and Kings, and the children of Israel” as though Paul were being sent to three separate groups (we’ll cover more about mistranslations in a later Proof). Once the translation is corrected, we see that Paul was sent to the nations and kings OF the sons of Israel. In other words, he was sent to the dispersed Israelites.
Paul wrote eight general or universal epistles and four epistles to various individuals. These general epistles are addressed to the Romans, Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, and Hebrews. All of these peoples — except for the Hebrews — were located in Italy, Greece, and Asia Minor. It’s clear that Paul was only interested in spreading the gospel to the European people because that’s where he believed the dispersed Israelites were.
We Europeans are everywhere, we are on every continent and in every corner of the world. Of course we’re mostly in Europe, the British Isles, North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Russia. Wherever we’ve gone, we have thrived and built Christian civilizations based on Yahweh’s laws. However we were not always spread across the world, at one time we were within the bounds of Europe. And at one time we went by different names, our tribal names, Saxons, Angles, Franks, Danes, Jutes etc. The question is if we come from the Germanic Tribes, then where the Germanic tribes come from?
Now on the other hand most people these days have at least a basic vague outline of the story within the Bible. How Yahweh made a covenant with Abraham (2000 BC), later Yahweh led them out of Egypt under Moses, how the Israelites invaded the land of Canaan, but eventually were deported by the Assyrians (722 BC). From here on all trace of the Israelites fades in history. So when we put one and one together, we have Europeans originating from the Middle East and the Israelites disappearing in the Middle East. Could there be a connection?
Yahweh promised that the Israelites would become a mighty seafaring nation, in addition to being farmers and shepherds. This is perhaps the least known promise to Israel. Perhaps that’s because the Bible focuses almost exclusively on the Israelites who remained in the land of Canaan and were an agricultural kingdom. Nevertheless, Scripture does make some references to the Israelites who left and became great maritime seafarers. We also have proof of these migrations in historical records. These Israelites became explorers and used their ships to colonize islands and coastlands and ultimately ended up ruling all the seas and controlling all seaports and harbors worldwide. They set up trade and colonies all over the world and especially in Europe.
