How Many Tribes do the Jews Represent? A Minority and Majority Points of View

How Many Tribes do the Jews Represent? By Jeff Booth

“Preaching the kingdom of God, AND teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ” Acts 28:31. Some Christians are of the opinion that the Jews of today represent all 12 tribes of Israel, others believe that they only represent two. Years ago I was talking to a Jewish believer on this very subject. I was explaining to him that Jews represent only two tribes and not 12 and he asked me a question: “What do Jewish scholars have to say about this?” I thought that was a fantastic question and told him I’d check it out. I spent a few months visiting synagogues with libraries, several public and county libraries making photocopies of pages from books written by Jewish rabbis, scholars, historians and theologians. I was only interested in Jewish thought on the issue. Not one of them maintained the position that the Jews of today represent all 12 tribes. They hold the position that the Jews represent only 2 tribes: Judah & Benjamin. In their opinion the 10 tribes are still “lost.” I even made phone calls to rabbis and asked them this question. “They’re lost, we don’t know where they are,” they all told me. There are two schools of thought on the 10 tribes in Jewish circles: They’re lost and will some day be reunited with Judah (The minority point-of-view)
