So I tried to impress my Dad the other day and name the twelve tribes of Israel. Dad's a pastor and he loves it when people throw questions at him. It's actually kind of fun. Anyhow, let's see if you can name the twelve tribes of Israel. I'll start you off with Judah, Dan and Levy. By the way, whose sons were they?

Depending on whether you believe Genesis or Revelation, the lists are different. In Genesis we have: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Zebulun, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Ephraim and Manasseh. In Revelation we have: Judah, Reuben, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Manasseh, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph and Benjamin. Israel is actually Jacob.

Nice, nice, very nice. I wonder if Dan was left out in Revelations because they did something nasty back there in the Old Testament. Hmmmm, another good discussion. Didn't the tribe of Dan not come to the aid of their brothers? I'll have to check up on that. Thanks Vladilyich. Hope you have a great weekend.

WOW! This is interesting I never knew that the two lists were different. Always thought that it's the same. Can you point me to the verse where the lists are listed? Can't seem to find it through the online search. So changes for the Genesis and Revelation lists would be for Dan and Ephraim to Reuben and Joseph?

I wish this discussion had popped up when he Missionaries had come to call, hat week back in late September of last year. It would have shifted the discussion from trying to onert me, to something else. LOL LOL I have no idea. Maybe my husband knows. I'll send this to him and see what happens.

I'll wait for his answer. I like your homepage by the way. We're always looking for new cookbooks. Danish recipes are something I've never tried.

I am too sleepy and out of practice. Sons of Jacob also known as Israel. Judah, Dan, Levi, Reuben, Benjamin,Zebulon, Oh, I give up. Hope you post the answer.Time to go back to reading the Bible. I know that two were named for his grandsons, not his sons.

Ephraim and Mannaseh I believe were his grandsons. For some reason Joseph (Jacob's beloved) was left out. Too much going on in Egypt I guess, but then again Joseph's sons were definitely half Egyptian. I know there is a reason though. BTW, I never got Zebulon. Good one.

Oh, coolio. Double thanks to you for dropping by then. Isn't atheism a religion though? I'm not religious either, just a whacky born-again Christian.
