This is an audio-book made by a friend of E Raymond Capt’s popular book the Abrahamic Covenant. The book is a short concise 51 page summary and explanation of the Covenant made between Yahweh, the God of the Bible and Abraham. The promise that Yahweh would bless Abraham and his descendants, making them; as numerous as the stars, a multitude of nations, a blessing to where ever they traveled to. These blessings were passed down to Jacob and his twelve sons, who’s descendants became the twelve tribes of Israel. Their blessings were partially fulfilled when they dwelt in the land of Canaan, however they were deported by the Assyrians around 721 BC. So where did they go and where were the rest of the promises fulfilled?
Capt’s concludes that only the Europeans fulfill these promises, in other words the Europeans must be the Israelites who were deported. How did this happen? Capt provides evidence of the migrations of the “Lost Tribes” to Europe. The Israelites taken into captivity by the Assyrians, East to the cities of the Medes, who then traveled over and around the Caucasus Mountains to Europe over many centuries. They went under different names, most notably the Cimmerians, Scythians, Galatea, Celts and eventually the Germanic Tribes.
Whilst Capt book has helped many Europeans discover their heritage, his work is not without flaws. Therefore it is essential that we point out some of the errors out in this book and correct him. We hope we’ve these corrections, people can still read Capt’s work but not fall into his errors and gain a greater understanding.
Firstly Capt doesn’t challenge those who falsely claim to the Israelites today, rather he seems to accept that they are the tribe of Judah. In reality they are not Judah, but are the race of Cain masquerading as the Israelites today and the Europeans are the true only Israelites but sadly completely blind to their identity.
Capt seemed to support what we might call the “Dominion theory,” which is that is our job, the Europeans, to take the Gospel of Christ to all the other non-European people across the world. In reality this is completely contrary to scripture. The Israelites and their descendants were commanded to be a separate Holy people. Or as Christ said “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet.” Matthew 7:6 KJV
Capt focuses heavily on Britain and America. Whilst the British Empire and then the American Empire eclipsed all previous European powers, this does not in anyway take away from the rest of the Europeans also being descendants of the Israelites. Among the twelve sons of Jacob, Joseph was promised a double portion, who’s blessing was passed down to his two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. Britain must be Ephraim and America must be Manasseh. The point is the other eleven tribes must be the rest of the Europeans and certainly would also be amongst the British and American people.
Overall it is an enjoyable book, an easy read and a book you can share with friends and family to introduce them to the topic. Just please beware of the mistakes pointed out above.
