The “Lost Tribes of Israel”: One of the Greatest Mysteries of History Revealed

March 02, 2017

For centuries, explorers, historians, archaeologists, and researchers studied and debated the fate of the fabled “Lost Tribes of Israel”. Following the conquest of the Northern Kingdom of Israel by the Assyrians, most of the members of the ten tribes were scattered throughout the empire. That was followed by the Babylonian captivity, and then still later the Roman dispersion that left few traces of a once great nation God had blessed.

Through the years, the fate of the “Lost Tribes” has been of great interest. There were strange reports and rumors and fanciful theories that piqued interest but did little to add to the truth. Then a series of remarkable discoveries began to be made in places thousands of miles away. People groups were discovered in remote areas that followed many ancient Jewish customs and had tribal traditions and legends that they were connected to Israel. In 1985, when news of the Operation Moses airlift that covertly brought some 8,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel was leaked, it was the first time that many people discovered that the “Lost Tribes” had indeed been found.

God has uniquely positioned and equipped Jewish Voice to reach out to these newly found groups. For many years now, we have been conducting outreaches in remote areas, meeting physical needs of these often poor people groups, and sharing the Gospel of Yeshua. We have seen thousands come to faith in Him during these outreaches.

Today, we are delighted to share with you an update on the status of the scattered Jewish People groups and our work among them in a new edition of The Lost Tribes of Israel photobook. We invite you to join us for a celebration of
God’s preservation of His Chosen People in these wonderful pages.

This stunning coffee table book is filled with beautiful color pictures from different Jewish People groups in Ethiopia, India, and Zimbabwe. You will meet the Beta Abraham, the Gefat, the Lemba, the Beta Israel, and the Bnei Menashe—confirmed by DNA evidence to be descended from the scattered Tribes of Israel. It will give you a new sense of their needs and the doors God has opened for us to reach them.
