HISTORY’s BEST KEPT SECRET

“GO to the LOST SHEEP of ISRAEL”

CHRIST’S MISSION ON EARTH WAS to REDEEM ISRAEL,  for He says, “I am NOT SENT, but unto the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL”

Jesus encountered a SAMARITAN woman, telling her“I am NOT SENT but for the Lost Sheep of the HOUSE of ISRAEL”

SAMARITANS occupied the land of the EXILED NORTHERN 10 TRIBES of ISRAEL, TAKEN by the ASSYRIANS beginning in 721 B.C., as GOD’s PUNISHMENT for THEIR IDOLATRY …

Jesus’ commission states in Matthew 10:5-6: “these TWELVE Jesus SENT FORTH, and COMMANDED them, saying, go NOT into the way of the GENTILES, and into any city of the SAMARITANS enter ye NOT: …

… but go rather to the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL

Jesus said  “HOUSE of ISRAEL” because he referred to the REUNITING of the DIVORCED and “LOST” NORTHERN 10 TRIBES of  “HOUSE” of ISRAEL and GOD …

WHERE Peter and others of the twelve went AFTER they LEFT PALESTINE has been one of the …

BEST-KEPT SECRETS of HISTORY …

GOD is TRUE to HIS WORD – BOTH The BIBLE and “SECULAR” HISTORY BEAR WITNESS to HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS WORD – “FOREVER SETTLED in HEAVEN”!

DEUTERONOMY 32:8– 

“WHEN the MOST HIGH DIVIDED to the NATIONS THEIR INHERITANCE, WHEN HE SEPARATED the SONS of ADAM, HE SET the BOUNDS of PEOPLE ACCORDING to the NUMBER of the CHILDREN of ISRAEL”

THERE are  GOD’S “SET” PROPHECIES, PATTERNS and TIMES, to HIS REVELATION …

“THEREFORE, BEHOLD, I WILL DO a MARVELOUS WORK and a WONDER AMONG THEM: for WISDOM of  THEIR WISE MEN SHALL PERISH, and the UNDERSTANDING of THEIR PRUDENT WILL BE HID”.   – ISAIAH 29:10, 13

The BIBLE NARRATIVE of WHERE the EXILED “LOST SHEEP of ISRAEL”  ENDED UP is an EXAMPLE of GOD’s CONTROL OVER HISTORY …

… “BUT GO to the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL”, fulfills the prophecy, “yet doth he devise means that HIS BANISHED be NOT expelled from him”

After the 10 NORTHERN TRIBE ISRAELITES were CARRIED into the ASSYRIAN CAPTIVITY beginning in 721 B.C., they remained in MEDIA UNTIL CHRIST CAME  …

From MEDIA they went into Pamphylia, Galatia, Cappadocia, Lydia, and Bithyania.

We have the testimony of JOSEPHUS in the year 70 A.D. that the TWO TRIBES,  JUDAH and LEVI, were captured by the Roman Titus.  The TEMPLE in JERUSALEM was DESTROYED in the JEWISH “DIASPORA” …

… but the TEN TRIBES were BEYOND the RIVER EUPHRATES, an IMMENSE NUMBER of PEOPLE … 

A majority of the locations visited by the Apostles were to the EXILED “LOST” TRIBES on their EXILE and  MIGRATION to their EVENTUAL NEW, “APPOINTED” HOME …

WHERE Peter and others of the twelve went AFTER they LEFT PALESTINE has been one of the …

BEST-KEPT SECRETS of HISTORY …

IDENTITY of the “LOST HOUSE” of ISRAEL WOULD NOT be revealed until GOD’s SET TIME (after 1800) …

IF the world had KNOWN the lands to which the twelve apostles journeyed, the House of Israel would NEVER have been “LOST”from VIEW …

PETERfrom the city BABYLON, in MESOPOTAMIA, directed the work of all the 12 APOSTLES in the “EAST” …

Christ did send Peter to the home of the Roman Cornelius (acts 10 and 11) to open the gospel to the Gentiles, but PETER’S LIFE MISSION was to CARRY the GOSPEL to “the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL

We know Peter was for a time at BABYLON in Mesopotamia, from which he wrote the letters to the churches in Asia Minor (I Peter 5:13)  

BABYLON was the major city from which the apostles in the east worked

Similarly Paul and the evangelists under him used ANTIOCH in SYRIA as their chief city. (Acts 14:26)   

The order in which Peter, in verse one of his first epistle, named the provinces of Asia Minor – from east to west and back – clearly proves that the letter was sent FROM BABYLON in the EAST, NOT ROME in the WEST.

SCYTHIA was the name of the vast plain north of the Black and the Caspian seas.

To this region a great colony of ISRAELITES MIGRATED after the fall of the Persian Empire in 331 B.C.

The WORD SCYTHIA, in Celtic, has the SAME meaning that HEBREW does in the semitic language – a MIGRANT or WANDERER.

ANDREW  (Peter’s brother) Cappadocia, Galatia, Bithynia, Scythi preaching to the very areas in Asia Minor which Paul bypassed

Peter’s brother ANDREW preached to the so-called “white Syrians” – while they abode by the Bosporus and on the Black Sea.

From Greek historians: “In this division Andrew had Scythia and the neighboring countries primarily alloted him for his province.

Andrew first travelled through Cappadocia, (upper) Galatia and Bithynia,and instructed them in the faith of Christ, passing all along the Euxine Sea” – the old name for the Black Sea! – “… and so into the solitude of Scythia

One early Greek author gives these journeys in special detail, just as if Luke had written anaccount of the other apostles as he did of Paul.

Andrew “went next to Trapezus, a maritime city on the Euxine Sea, whence after many other places he came to Nice, where he stayed two years, preaching and working miracles with great success … thence to Nicomedia, and so to Chalcedon …

… whence sailing through the Propontis he came by the Euxine sea to Heraclea, and from thence to Amastris ….   he next came to Sinope, a city situated upon the same sea, … here he met with his brother Peter, with whom he stayed a considerable time …. departing hence, he went again to Amynsus and then … he proposed to return to Jerusalem” – the headquarters church. “whence after some time he betook himself … to the country of Abasgi [a land in the Caucasus]

Hence he removed into … Asiatic Scythia or Sarmatia, but finding the inhabitants very barbarous and intractable, he stayed not long among them, only at Cherson, or Chersonesus, a great and populous city within the Bosporus [the modern Crimea].

Andrew continued for some time, instructing them and confirming them in the faith. Hence taking ship, he sailed across the sea to Sinope, situated in Paphlagonia“.  (pp. 137-138 Cave’s “Antiquitates Apostolicae”)

Scottish traditions report that Andrew preached to their ancestors.  From this region, and from Scythia north of the Black Sea, migrated the ancestors of the Scots and Anglo-Saxons.

They are of the HOUSE of ISRAEL – Andrew obeyed his commission!

JAMES (brother of John), beheaded by Herod (Acts 12), was born in the city of Bethsaida in Galilee, the son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle.

Another apostle sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel ends in the British Isles – in Ireland as well as in Britain.

JAMES, son of Alphaeus went west, into Spain, Britain and Ireland, where he planted Christianity. (p. 148 of Cave’s work)

Another Apostle sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, some early writers were confused by the fact that two of the twelve apostles were named James.

James, son of Alphaeus, was the one who left Palestine after the first twelve years.

The deeds of this apostle are sometimes mistakenly assigned to James, John’s brother.

But that James was already martyred by Herod (Acts 12:2)

Why Spain?  From ancient times Spain was the high road of migration from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to BRITAIN.  The ancient royal house of Ireland for a time dwelt in Spain.

Eusebius, in his third book of “evangelical demonstrations”, chapter 7, admitted that the apostles “passed over to those which are called the BRITISH ISLES.”

He wrote: “some of the Apostles preached the Gospel in the British Isles”.

THOMAS– Parthia, Media, Persia [Carman, Hyrcani, Bactria — that is Iran and Afhganistan today], northwest India: these “white Indians” – that is, whites living in India – were also known as “Nephthalite Huns”, in later Greek records. They were connected with the tribe of Naphthali.

The “Nephthalite Huns” were overthrown in the sixth century and migrated into Scandinavia.   The archaeology of Scandinavia confirms this event.   

Greek historians reveal that Thomas brought   the gospel to “Parthia, after which Sophornius and others inform us, that he preached the gospel to the MEDES, PERSIANS, CARMANS, HYRCANI, BACTRIANS, and the NEIGHBOR NATIONS” (Cave’s “antiq. apost.”, p. 189)

Parthia and Britain were Israelite.

Thomas carried the gospel to the Parthian Israelites.

The Israelites lost their identity and became identified with the names of the districts in which they lived.  Josephus, the Jewish historian, was familiar with Parthia as a major dwelling place of the Ten Tribes.

These strange sounding names are the lands we know today as Iran (or Persia) and Afghanistan.

In apostolic days the whole region was subject to the Parthians. Though many Israelites had left the region already, multitudes remained behind, spread over adjoining territory.

THOMAS was MARTYRED with a Brahmin sword near Madras, INDIA.

BARTHOLOMEW  shared, with Thomas, the same vast plains of PARTHIA, MEDIA, PERSIA, northwest INDIA.  

Bartholomew also spent part of his time in neighboring ARMENIA and a portion of upper Phrygia in Asia Minor

Nicephorus termed the area, in his history, the “western and northern parts of Asia,” by which he meant upper Asia minor, modern TURKEY today.

This was the same district to which Andrew carried the gospel, and to which Peter sent two of his letters.

MATTHEWMetaphrastes tells us, “went first into PARTHIA, and having successfully planted Christianity in those parts, thence travelled to the Asiatic Aethiopia, lying near INDIA.”

For some centuries this region of the Hindu Kush, bordering on Scythia and Parthia, was known as “WHITE INDIA“.  It lies slightly east of the area where the Assyrians settled the Israelite captives.

A natural process of growth led the House of Israel to these sparsely populated regions. From there they migrated to northwest Europe in the sixth century, long after the apostles’ time.

Dorotheus declares MATTHEW was BURIED at Hierapolis in PARTHIA.

The PARTHIAN Kingdom was, in fact, a loose union of those lost tribes of ISRAEL who dwelt in central Asia during this period. The Persians finally drove them all out.  The Parthian Kingdom was defeated by Persia in 226 A.D.  

EXPELLED from PARTHIA, the TEN TRIBES and the Medes MOVED NORTH of the Black Sea, into SCYTHIA.

Whenever Parthia prospered, other nations prospered.  Whenever the Parthians suffered reverses, other nations suffered.  Remember the Scripture: “And I will BLESS them that bless thee, and CURSE him that curseth thee” (Genesis 12:3)

SIMON the ZEALOTFrom the Greek records, Simon“directed his journey toward EGYPT, then to Cyrene,and Africa, throughout Mauritania and all Libya, Mauritania – Roman Province.

“Preaching the Gospel …. nor could the coldness of the climate benumb his zeal, or hinder him from whipping himself and the Christian doctrine over to the western islands, yea, even to BRITAIN itself.  Here Simon preached and wrought many miracles ….”

Nicephorus and Dorotheus both wrote “that he went at last into BRITAIN, and … was CRUCIFIED… and BURIED there“. (p. 203 of Cave’s “antiq. apost.”)

Another of the twelve apostles is found preaching to the lost tribes of israel in Britain and the West

But what is SIMON the ZEALOT doing in NORTH AFRICA?

Were remnants of the House of  Israel there, too?

Had some fled westward in 721 B.C. at the time of the Assyrian conquest of Palestine?

Geoffrey of Monmouth: “the SAXONS… went unto Gormund, king of the Africans, in Ireland, wherein, adventuring thither with a vast fleet, he had conquered the folk of the country.  

As they MIGRATED, their NAME and LANGUAGE CHANGED.

They were known as SAKA, Sajoi, Sacae, Sakasuna, Kumri, SAXONS, all meaning “SONS of ISAAC”. 

The Saxons sailed across with a hundred and sixty thousand AFRICANS into BRITAIN … (and) laid waste, as has been said, well-nigh the whole island with his countless thousands of Africans” (bk. xi,sect. 8, 10)

These countless thousands were NOT negroes, or Arabs. They were whites – Nordics – who came from North Africa and Mauritania, where Simon preached.

These Nordics, declares the “universal history” (1748-vol. xviii, p. 194), “gave out, that their ancestors were driven out of Asia by a powerful enemy, and pursued into Greece; from whence they made their escape” to north Africa.  But this … was to be understood only of the white nations inhabiting some parts of western Barbary and Numidia.

What white nation was driven from the western shores of western Asia? the House of Israel! their powerful enemy? The Assyrians!

For almost three centuries after the time of Simon Zelotes these Saxons remained in Mauritania. But they are not in North Africa today.  They arrived in Britain shortly after AD  449 at the time of the Anglo-Saxon invasion.

In AD 598, when the Pope sent Augustine to bring Catholicism to England he found the inhabitants were already professing Christians –their ancestors had ALREADY heard the message from one of the twelve apostles.

PHILIP was assigned the regions of SCYTHIA and upper ASIA (asia minor)

MATTHIAS (replaced Judas Iscariot) Dacia (Romania), upper Macedonia

Ethiopic and Greek sources designate Dacia (modern Romania) and Nacedonia, north of Greece, as part of the ministry of Matthias.

Dacia was the extreme western part of Scythia.

From Dacia came the Normans who ultimately settled in France and Britain.

JOHN: The French tradition that Mary, the mother of Jesus, journeyed into Gaul (modern France) lends heavy weight to John’s having been in Gaul in his earlier years.

It was to John that Jesus committed Mary’s care.  She would be where he was working.

Paul knew Gaul to be an area settled by the House of Israel.  He bypassed Gaul on his way from Italy to Spain (Romans 15:24, 28). Gaul must have been reached by one of the twelve.

The identity of Israel, from secular sources, is itself also independent and absolute proof of where the twelve apostles carried out God’s work.   (John 7:34, 35)

Christianity would spread west and north into the Mediterranean world,  a world with “Israelite” traces. Jesus’ disciples went to the Greek-Mediterranean world.

MARY MAGDALENE and LAZARUS settled in MARSEILLES, FRANCE.

JESUS  encountered a SAMARITAN WOMAN … 

SAMARITANS occupied the land of the exiled northern 10 Tribes of Israel.

Jesus told her“I am NOT SENT BUT for the LOST SHEEP of the House of ISRAEL?”

 Matthew 15:22:  And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, have mercy on me, o lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with  a devil

 15:23but He answered her NOT a WORD. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, send her away; for she crieth after us

 15:24 but he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the Lost Sheep of  the House of Israel

 15:25-27 25then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

26but HE ANSWERED and said,  it is not meet to take the CHILDREN’s BREAD, and to  cast it to DOGS

27and she said, truth, Lord: yet the DOGS EAT of the CRUMBS which fall from their masters’ table

JESUS’ MINISTRY was based in GALILEE in the NORTH.

Jesus’ DISCIPLES (except judas iscariot) were primarily GALILEANS from the tribe of BENJAMIN

Jesus’ commission tells in Matthew 10:5-6: “these TWELVE Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the House of Israel

From the Bible: “Go NOT into the way of the GENTILES, … but  go rather to the Lost Sheep of the House of ISRAEL!”

Jesus  “COMMANDED them”  – the twelve were FORBIDDEN to spread the gospel among the GENTILES …

PAUL – APOSTLE to the GENTILES

It was PAUL, not any of the twelve, a special apostle and COMMISION to bear the GOSPEL to the GENTILES: 

 “He [PAUL] is a CHOSEN VESSEL unto me, to bear my name before …

 the GENTILES, and KINGS and the CHILDREN of ISRAEL” (Acts 9:15)

It was the apostle Paul, called years later as a special apostle, who was commissioned to bear the gospel to the Gentiles.

To Ananias, who was sent to baptize Paul, Christ gave this assurance: “go thy way: for he” …

… Saul, later named PAUL – “He is a CHOSEN VESSEL unto me, to BEAR MY NAME before the GENTILES, and KINGSand the CHILDREN of ISRAEL” (Acts 9:15)

It was Paul, not any of the twelve, who said: “from henceforth I will go unto the GENTILES”  (Acts 18:6)

Would he not have called Paul a special apostle to carry the gospel to the GENTILES, if the original twelve had been commissioned to preach to the Gentiles?

Paul originally PLANNED to go “EAST” into ASIA; he was “CONSTRAINED” to going EAST …

The Bible provides evidence of where the “Lost Sheep of ISRAEL” ENDED UP

… a majority of the locations visited by the apostles were those on the route taken by the LOST TRIBES on their MIGRATION to ISRAEL’s NEW PLACE

GENESIS 28:14 –  And THY SEED shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt SPREAD ABROAD to the WEST, and to the EAST, and to the NORTH, and to the SOUTH

Isaiah 51:4-5 (King James version)

4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, o MY NATION: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a LIGHT of the EPOPLE.                                            

my righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and MINE ARMS SHALL JUDGE the people; the ISLES shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust

Isaiah 24:15 “wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the LORD GOD of ISRAEL

“In the ISLESof the sea” –  the Hebrew word “zam” is translated “SEA”, but can also mean “WEST, meaning a point on the compass

 Isaiah 41:1 “Listen, o ISLES, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far”

 Isaiah 49:12– “behold, these SHALL COME from FAR: and, lo, these from the NORTH and from the WEST” [of Palestine]

ISAIAH 42:4  “HE SHALL NOT FAIL NOR BE DISCOURAGED, TILL HE HAVE SET JUDGMENT in the EARTH: and the ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR HIS LAW”

  “Hear the WORD of the LORD, o ye nations, and DECLARE IT in the ISLES afar off, and say, he that SCATTERED ISRAEL will GATHER him, and KEEP him, as a SHEPHERD doth his FLOCK”  – Jeremiah 31:10

The PROPHET JEREMIAH passed through SPAIN into IRELAND with Zedekiah’s daughters … (but that is a whole separate part of the matter … the ROYAL LINE of JUDAH)

The history of the early New Testament church is preserved in the Book of Acts. 

ACTS ENDS in the MIDDLE of the story.

Luke doesn’t even finish the life of Paul after his two-years’ imprisonment ended.

WHY?

You will find the answer in Christ’s commission to Paul. Even before Paul was baptized, Christ had planned the future work he was to accomplish.

FIRST, PAUL was to teach the GENTILES – which he did in Cyprus, Asia Minor and GREECE.

SECOND, PAUL was to appear before KINGS– an event brought about by a two-year imprisonment at ROME.

Paul visited Rome, who’s church was led by descendents of the British royal family  King CARADOC (“Caractacus”)

Caradoc had been captured by the Romans and held in Rome under “house arrest”.  The home of Caradoc’s daughter Gladys was the ROMAN “CHURCH”.

At the end of that two-year period, during which no accusers had appeared, Paul would automatically have been released according to Roman law.

It is at this point that Luke strangely breaks off the story of Paul’s life.    (Acts 28:31)

But PAUL’S THIRD MISSION was not yet accomplished …

Christ had chosen Paul for a THREEfold purpose – “to bear his name before the GENTILES, and KINGS and the CHILDREN of ISRAEL (Acts 9:15)

PAUL was to END HIS WORK AMONG the LOST TEN TRIBES …

LUKE was NOT PERMITTED by CHRIST to include in Acts the FINAL JOURNEYS of PAUL’s life.

GOD PURPOSELY EXCLUDED from the Book of ACTS the FINAL CHAPTERS in the history of the early true church …

IF they had been INCLUDED, the IDENTITY and WHEREABOUTS of ISRAEL and of the true church would have been REVEALED … 

It was NOT THEM GOD’s TIME to make that KNOWN …

“LOST” ISRAEL REDISCOVERED

In Leviticus 26, the promise of God linked with the CURSE of God, that once his people entered the Promised Land and DISOBEYED him he would PUNISH THEM SEVEN TIMES; seven times three hundred sixty or  2520 years …

Leviticus 26:18: “and if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will PUNISH you …

 … SEVEN TIMES more for your sins”

In 721 BC history records the fall of Israel to the Assyrian king.

If we add 2520 years of hidden truth, …

… it brings us to 1800 AD  (From 721 BC to 1800 AD is 2520 years)

The seven times punishment of  LOST IDENTITY was destined to END in the year 1800 AD.

It began with people who saw (correctly) that the Anglo­-Saxon people were exhibiting the characteristics of the “birthright” tribes of EPHRAIM and MANASSEH.  

They then came to believe (erroneously) that the British Empire was (or would develop into) the Kingdom of God on earth.

This “messianic” doctrine was discredited when it became clear that the British empire would never become the millennial “Kingdom of God”.  

Although the messianic nationalism of British Israelism was proven incorrect, the evidence that the Anglo­-Saxons were the modern tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh remained as solid as ever.

Sometime between 1774 and 1793 SONNINI, traveling in the Middle East, discovered a manuscript in the archives of Constantinople.  The Sonnini Manuscript was published and translated into English sometime late in 1799, available at the earliest about 1800.  

Ithis manuscript had been allowed to circulate, the declaration of God through the prophet hosea that the Lost Tribes would be lost, be known as not having obtained mercy, scattered, known not as God’s people, the hiding and losing of these people UNTIL the APPOINTED TIME, would have been forfeited.

Their cover would have been blown because, “he had a long time proposed to journey thitherward, and was minded also to go from thence to Britain”.

Acts 29:1 – “… and Paul, full of the blessings of Christ, and abounding in the spirit, departed OUT of ROME, determining to go into SPAIN, for he had a long time proposed to journey thitherward, and was minded also to go from thence to BRITAIN” …

Acts 29:2 – “for he had heard in Phoenicia that certain of the CHILDREN of ISRAEL, about the time of  the Assyrian Captivity, had escaped by sea to the ISLES afar off” as spoken by the prophet [Esdra], and called by the Romans – BRITAIN” …

Acts 29:3 – “and the LORD commanded the gospel to be preached far hence to the GENTILES [nations], and to the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL” …

Acts 29:7- “and they departed out of SPAIN, and Paul and his company finding a ship in Armorica sailing unto BRITAIN, they were therein, and passing along the south coast, they reached a port called RAPHINUS. (the Roman name for SANDWICH, in KENT) 

Acts 29:7- “in Saxon times there was, still standing in Sandwich, an old house called the “HOUSE of the APOSTLES” 

“and on the morrow he came and stood upon mount lud (Ludgate Hill and Broadway where St. Paul’s Cathedral stands in LONDON, England …

“and the people thronged at the gate, and assembled in the BROADWAY, and he preached Christ unto them, and they believed the word and the testimony of Jesus” …

Acts 29:10 – “and at even the Holy Ghost fell upon Paul, and he prophesied, saying, “Behold in the last days the God of peace shall dwell in the cities, and the inhabitants thereof shall be NUMBERED

(this first-ever census in England, prophesied in this ancient manuscript, was taken in 1801)

“and in the SEVENTH NUMBERING of the peopleTHEIR EYES SHALL BE OPENED”

 This “punishment” would include ignorance of their heritage, and the glory of their inheritance shine forth before them …

The SEVENTH CENSUS was taken in 1861, just as the irrefutable archeological evidence for the LOST TRIBES was making it’s way into history.

The CHURCH in BRITAIN

In Matthew 17, JESUS was being ASKED for the STRANGER’s TAX

They seemed aware that JESUS LIVED in CAPERNAUM.

They didn’t know if He was EXEMPT from the TAX, having been GONE for a LONG TIME …

JOHN the BAPTIST, who was JESUS’ COUSIN, and spent time with Jesus as they GREW UP, was VERY UNDERTAIN as to JESUS’ IDENTITY at his baptism.  

IFJESUS had spent the “LOST YEARS” in Judea, he and John would certainly have seen each other at the THREE YEARLY FEASTS …

We find TWO ACCOUNTSof  JESUS’ IDENTITY being QUESTIONED …

“Is this not Joseph‘s son?” “brought up here?” (Luke 4) “is not this the carpenter‘s son?” (Matthew 14)

In John 1 we find that NATHANIEL, who only lived five miles from Nazareth, DOES NOT KNOW JESUS …

IF JESUS was indeed ABSENT from JUDEA from AGE TWELVE to age THIRTY, as some believe, …

We should be able to find EVIDENCE that this was the case …

JOSEPH of ARIMATHEA was a RICH MERCHANT with a large fleet of SHIPS that ran the …

… TIN TRADE for the Roman empire, between England and the Mediterranean tin trade in England and  Jesus’ relationship with Joseph. 

Joseph had a fleet of ships, that made possible JESUS ACCESS to WORLDWIDE TRAVEL

JOSEPH of ARIMATHEA on one of his voyages TOOK JESUS with HIM on his journeys to GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND, know as AVALON …

The location of the FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH built above ground traditional story  describes Jesus teaching the miners of CORNWALL how to smelt TINfrom ore …

Is there any PROOFthat JESUS LIVED in ENGLAND during the MISSING YEARS?

SCATTERED EVIDENCE  ABOUNDS of JESUS’ VISITS to ENGLAND …

Physical evidence – NO; circumstantial evidence, allied with common-sense deduction …

According to the TALMUD, JOSEPH was the YOUNGER BROTHER of the FATHER of the VIRGIN MARY.

He was HER UNCLE, and therefore a GREAT UNCLE to JESUS. 

As JESUS’ GREAT UNCLE, Joseph became JESUS’ GUARDIAN (Jewish law appointed by law, as next of kin) when Mary’s husband Joseph died early in Jesus’ life.

We know that JOSEPH NEVER FORSOOK HIS NEPHEW 

He stood by him as a bold, fearless defender at the notorious TRIAL, and DEFIED the SANHEDRIN by going to Pilate and BOLDLY CLAIMED JESUS’ BODY when all others FEARED to do so.

It is TRADITIONALLY TAUGHT that JESUS was POOR and of OBSCURE RELATIVES.

His relationship with the affluent JOSEPH of ARIMATHEA PROVES OTHERWISE

Joseph was a RICH MERCHANTwith a LARGE FLEET of SHIPS that ran the TIN TRADEfor the Roman empire, between England and the Mediterranean

Rev. C.C. Dobson’s booklet, Did Our Lord Visit Britain? gives us some historical background of both the TIN TRADE in ENGLAND and JESUS’ relationship with Joseph.

HERODOTUS as early as 445 BC speaks of the British Isles as the TIN islands or Cassiterides.

PYTHEAS (352-323 bc) mentions the tin TIN TRADE, as does also POLYBIUS (circa 160).

DIORDOUS SICULUS gives a detailed description of the trade, telling us that the tin was mined, beaten into squares, and carried to an ISLAND called ICTIS.

Joseph had a fleet of ships, that gave Jesus access to worldwide travel.

WORLD travel to ALL lands was POSSIBLE …

C.C. Dobson: “as a BOY JESUS was brought for a visit by Joseph of Arimathea on one of his voyages.

He took Jesus with him on his journeys to GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND.

The place we know as AVALON …

… this is the location of the FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH BUILT ABOVE GROUND …

A traditional story  describes Jesus teaching.  

The miners of CORNWALL knew how to smelt tin from ore.

old cornwall mining ordinance maps show two interesting names. “Corpus Christi” (body of Christ), and “wheel of Jesus” (wheel is a cornish name for mine)

Traditions among the hill folk of Somerset relate that Joseph, after first seeking tin from the Scillies (islands) and Cornwall, came to the Mendips and was ACCOMPANIED on several occasions by the BOY JESUS. 

Later as a YOUNG MAN JESUS RETURNED and settled at GLASTONBURY for the purpose of quiet study, prayer and meditation.

Jesus is said to have lived or worked briefly at PRIDDY, a village seven miles from Glastonbury.

Here JESUS ERECTED for himself a small house of mud and wattles.”

Dobson goes on to present historical evidence.

The VERY FIRST CHURCH in BRITAIN – a circular HUT made of wattles like those of the ancient lake villages – was built here in Glastonbury where the PRESENT DAY RUINS of the abbey stand.

Joseph of Arimathea came to Britain with other disciples and founded the first British church  at Glastonbury, where he planted his staff.  

This miraculously flowered into a tree, the Glastonbury Thorn, whose offshoots may still be seen today, flowering every Christmas.

A sprig or cutting is sent to buckingham palace every year from this tree, which analysis has shown is a Palestinian variety.

In a letter to Pope Gregory, Augustine states that there was a Church “constructed by no human art, but DIVINELY CONTRUCTED OR by the HANDS of CHRIST HIMSELF), for the salvation of his people.”  Various and many historical documents indicate that, after Jerusalem, the first Christian church was established in England.

Lionel Smithett Lewis’ St. Joseph of Arimathea at Glastonbury: It is certain that Britain received the faith in the first age from the first sowers of the word.

Henry Spelman in his Concilia, he wrote in the same work: “we have abundant evidence that this Britain of ours received the faith, and that from the disciple of Christ himself, SOON AFTER the crucifixion of Christ.”

There is little doubt among those who have looked at the evidence, that ENGLAND was the CRADLE of CHRISTIANITY, having been ESTABLISHED by JESUS’ UNCLE JOSEPH of ARIMATHEA, ALONG WITH MANY of the LORD’s DISCIPLESSHORTLY AFTER the RESURRECTION.

Joseph of Arimathea was the apostle (“sent one”) of Britain, the true apostle first to set up Christ’s standard on the sea-girt little ISLE, 562 years before Augustine set foot on English soil.

With other disciples of Christ, Joseph erected in ENGLAND the FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH ABOVE GROUND in the world.

Christianity was first introduced into BRITAIN by JOSEPH of Arimathaea, A.D. 36-39followed by SIMON ZELOTES, the apostle; then by ARISTOBULUS, the first bishop of the Britonsthen by PAUL. 

The TWO CRADLES of Christianity in Britainwere Ynys Wydrin, ‘the crystal isle,’ translated by the Saxons GLASTONBURY,  where Joseph settled and taught and SILURIA, …

… where the EARLIEST CHURCHES and SCHOOLS, next to Ynys Wydrin, were founded be the Silurian dynasty.

Ted Harrison: “If somebody was wanting to learn about the spirituality and thinking not just of the Jews but also the classical and Greek world he would have to come to Britain, which was the center of learning at the time.

Jesus would have come to learn what was being taught about astronomy and geometry which was being taught at “universities” run by Druids at the time‘‘.

That is when he was around the age of 12 and went to the Temple and astounded the learned experts with his knowledge. One could speculate he had just come back at that point.”

BEST-KEPT SECRETS of HISTORY …

The BIBLE NARRATIVE of WHERE the EXILED “LOST SHEEP of ISRAEL”  ENDED UP is an EXAMPLE of GOD’s CONTROL OVER HISTORY …

The prophet Ezekiel describes the MESSIANIC KINGDOM, when ISRAEL will KNOW and have a relationship with God, through JESUS CHRIST, the KING of ISRAEL …

EZEKIEL 37:24: “And DAVID MY SERVANT SHALL BE KING OVER THEM; and THEY ALL SHALL HAVE ONE SHEPHERD: THEY SHALL ALSO WALK IN MY JUDGMENTS, and OBSERVE MY STATUTES, and DO THEM.

EZEKIEL 37:25  “And THEY SHALL DWELL in the LAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UNTO JACOB MY SERVANT, WHEREIN YOUR FATHERS HAVE DWELT; and THEY SHALL DWELL THEREIN, EVEN THEY, and THEIR CHILDREN, and THEIR CHILDREN’s CHILDREN FOR EVER: and MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOREVER”

JEREMIAH 50:4  “IN THOSE DAYS, and IN THAT TIME, SAITH THE LORD, the CHILDREN of ISRAEL SHALL COME, THEY and the CHILDREN of JUDAH TOGETHER ”.  THEY SHALL GO, and SEEK the LORD THEIR GOD.  The NATIONS ALSO WILL KNOW.” 

 The nations will also UNDERSTAND the role ISRAEL played.  They will know the MESSIAH.  “ISRAEL” is a MANIFESTATION of GOD’s PROPHETIC “HAND” and CONTROL of HIS-story.

“Therefore, behold, I will do a MARVELOUS WORK and a WONDER among them” –Isaiah 29:10

GOD is TRUE to HIS WORD – both the Bible and “SECULAR” HISTORY bear witness to His FAITHFULNESS to HIS WORD – “FOREVER SETTLED in HEAVEN”!

IN the END, the WHOLE PURPOSE IS NOT the GLORY of “ISRAEL”, BUT the KNOWLEDGE of GOD, who will be “KNOWN in the EYES of the NATIONS” …

One day Christians are DESTINED to SERVE the “KING of ISRAEL” – JESUS CHRIST, the “LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH”,  who BOUGHT HIS “CHURCH” with HIS BLOOD, His “OUT CALLED ONES” of EVERY “ETHNON” (peoples), the “WILD OLIVE BRANCH” (“Gentiles”) transplanted onto the “tree” of “Israel”, individuals CHOSEN “before the worlds were formed” to rule and reign with Him in ETERNITY. (read Paul, Romans 8)

“History” encapsulates “HIS-story”, the REDEMPTION PLAN of the “CHURCH” of JESUS CHRIST, witnessed and told through His prophetic PEOPLE ISRAEL, ORACLES of HIS ETERNAL WORD …

GOD is TRUE to HIS WORD – BOTH The BIBLE and “SECULAR” HISTORY BEAR WITNESS to HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS WORD – “FOREVER SETTLED in HEAVEN”!

DEUTERONOMY 32:8 – 

“WHEN the MOST HIGH DIVIDED to the NATIONS THEIR INHERITANCE, WHEN HE SEPARATED the SONS of ADAM, HE SET the BOUNDS of PEOPLE ACCORDING to the NUMBER of the CHILDREN of ISRAEL”

THERE are  GOD’S “SET” PROPHECIES, PATTERNS and TIMES, TO HIS REVELATION …

“THEREFORE, BEHOLD, I WILL DO a MARVELOUS WORK and a WONDER AMONG THEM: for WISDOM of  THEIR WISE MEN SHALL PERISH, and the UNDERSTANDING of THEIR PRUDENT WILL BE HID”.   – ISAIAH 29:10, 13

WHERE DID the TWELVE APOSTLES GO?

source: The Plain Truth magazine, May, 1964

by Herman I. Hoeh:

WHY HAS the TRUTH ABOUT the JOURNEYS of the TWELVE APOSTLES BEEN KEPT from PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE?  

If multitudes of Greeks in southern asia minor were being converted to Christ by the ministry of Paul, and at the same time multitudes among the lost ten tribes of the house of Israel were being converted in northern asia minor, should not those Greeks have left the record of which of the twelve apostles carried the gospel there?

You read plainly of Paul‘s travels …  but the movements of the original twelve apostles are cloaked in MYSTERYWHY?

Did it ever seem strange to you that most of the New Testament, following the book of Acts, was written by Paul and not by Peter?

Did you ever wonder why, after Peter initiated the preaching of the Gospel to the Gentiles at the House of Cornelius (Acts 10 and 11), he and others of the TWELVE APOSTLES SUDDENLY VANISH FROM VIEW?  

And why onlyPeter and John reappear, for a fleeting moment, in Jerusalem at the inspired conference recorded in acts 15?

You read, after Acts 15, only of Paul’s ministry to the Gentiles.

WHY?

What happened to the twelve apostles? 

Jesus chose the twelve disciples, ordained them apostles, sent them, FIRST, to preach to the JEWS.

When the Jews, as a nation, rejected that message, you probably have SUPPOSED that they turned to the GENTILES.

NOTHING could be FURTHER from the TRUTH.

It was the apostle PAUL, called years later as a SPECIAL APOSTLE, who was commissioned to BEAR the GOSPEL to the GENTILES.  

To Ananias, who was sent to baptize Paul, Christ gave this assurance:

 “Go thy way: for he” – Saul, later named Paul – “he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the GENTILES, and KINGS and the children of ISRAEL” (Acts 9:15)

It was Paul, not any of the twelve, who said: “from henceforth I will go unto the GENTILES

(Acts 18:6)

Would he not have called Paulas a special apostle to carry the gospel to the Gentiles, …

 IF the original twelve had been commissioned to preach to the Gentiles?

then TO WHOM– and WHERE–  were the TWELVE APOSTLES SENT?

The TWELVE were FORBIDDEN to SPREAD the GOSPEL AMONG the GENTILES.

It was Paul who was commissioned to that work.  

The twelve were to go, instead, to the “LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL” – the “LOST” TEN TRIBES.  

Christ did send Peter to the home of Cornelius (acts 10 and 11) to open the gospel to the Gentiles, but PETER’S LIFE MISSION was to CARRY the GOSPEL to “the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL

Peter merely opened the door, as the chief apostle for the Gentiles.

It was PAUL who went through the door and brought the gospel to the nations.  

Peter, in his capacity of chief apostle, made one trip to the gentile Samaritans. but that was NOT to bring the Gospel to them.

Philip had done that. Peter and John merely prayed for the Samaritans that they would receive the Holy Spirit.  (see acts 8, verses 5, and 4 through 17)

Now we know to whom the Twelve Apostles were sent? They were NOTsent to the Gentiles,  but to “the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel”.

It was Paul who went to the Gentiles.

It is the true church today which, via radio, the printing press and tv, must  “go into all nations”  to preach the gospel until the end of this age comes. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Universal Greek tradition declares that the Apostles did not leave the  Syro-Palestinian region until the end of twelve years’ ministry.  The number 12 symbolizes a new organized beginning.

before those twelve years were up one of the Apostles was already dead – James, the brother ofJohn. He had been beheaded by Herod (Acts 12)

But where did the remaining apostles go?

Where PETER and others of the TWELVE WENT after they LEFT PALESTINE has been one of the …         

BEST KEPT SECRETS of HISTORY …

IFthe world had KNOWN the lands to which the twelve apostles journeyed, the house of ISRAEL would NEVER have been LOST from view.  

BUT GOD INTENDED, for a special purpose, which few understand, that the identity of the “LOST” HOUSE of ISRAEL should not be REVEALED until the 20th century.

If multitudes of Greeks in southern Asia Minor were being converted to Christ by the ministry of Paul, and at the same time multitudes among the lost ten tribes of the house of Israel were being converted in northern asia minor, should not those Greeks have left the record of which of the twelve apostles carried the gospel there?

To whom is the book of James addressed?: “James, a servant of god and of the Lord Jesus Christ,to the Twelve Tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting” (first verse)

The book of James is not addressed to the Gentiles or addressed exclusively to Judah – the Jews.

It is addressed to all twelve tribes

The letter of James, like the book of Acts,  ends abruptly, without the normal salutations? (James 5:20)

Compare James with Paul’s epistles. In the original inspired Greek New Testament everyone of Paul’s letters ends with an “amen.” everyone of the four gospels ends with an”amen.” the book of revelation ends with an “amen“.  This little word “amen“, of Hebrewderivation, signifies completion.

GOD PURPOSELY EXCLUDED from the BOOK of ACTS the FINAL CHAPTERS in the HISTORY of the EARLY TRUE CHURCH.

If they had been included, the identity and WHEREABOUTS of ISRAELand of the true church would have been REVEALED.  

It is part of God’s plan that the House of Israel should lose its identity and think itself Gentile. 

If the book of James had ended with the ordinary salutation, the nations of Israel would have been disclosed.  

From James 4:1 we learn that WARS were BEING WAGED AMONG  the LOST TRIBES of ISRAEL. 

“From whence come wars and lightings among you?” asks James.  What wars were these? No wars existed among the Jewsuntil the outbreak, several years later, of the revolt against the Romans.

These wars absolutely identify the lost house of Israel– the lands to which the twelve apostles

Journey.  James wrote his book about a.d. 60 (he was martyred about two years later according to

Josephus).  The world was temporarily at peace – cowed by the fear of Roman military might.

Just prior to AD 60   ONLY TWO AREAS  of the world were torn by wars and civil lightings.

When you discover which areas these were, you will have located where the lost ten tribes, addressed by James, were then living. All one needs to do is search the records of military history for the period immediately before and up to the year AD 60.

THOSE TWO LANDS were the BRITISH ISLES and the PARTHIAN Empire.

But these were not the only lands to which the exiled house of Israel journeyed.  To whom did Peter address his letters? Here it is. “Peter,an apostleof Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia”.  (I Peter 1:1)

These “strangers” were not Gentiles. Peterwas NOT the apostleto the Gentiles. (Galatians 2:8)

Peter was chief apostle to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.  The word “strangers” does not mean gentiles. The original Greek is “parepidemos”. It means “a resident foreigner,” literally,”an alien alongside“.  It refers not to Gentiles, but to NON-GENTILES WHO DWELT AMONG GENTILES, as REIGNERS andALIENS.  Abraham, for example, was a stranger, an alien, when he lived among the Canaanite Gentiles in Palestine.

Peter was addressing part of the lost Ten Tribes who dwelt among the Gentiles as aliens or strangers.

He was not writing primarily to Jews.  Peter would not have addressed them as “strangers,”  for he was himself a Jew.  The chief apostle to the House of Israel writing to a part of the ten lost tribes dwelling among the Assyrians who originally carried them captive!

We shall see later WHEN and WHERE these “lost sheep” migrated from Asia Minor to Northwest Europe.

See where each of the twelve apostles preached.

TO THESE PEOPLE – the LOST SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL – the STRANGERS AMONG the ASSYRIANS (I PETER 1:1) – the APOSTLE PETER ADDRESSES HIS FIRST LETTER. 

Greek writers, in the time of Christ, recognized that the regions of northernAsia Minor were non-Greek (except for a few Greek trading colonies in the port cities). New peoples, the Greeks tell us were living in northern Asia Minor in New Testament times.

Diodorus of Sicily: “… many conquered peoples were removed to other homes, and two of these became very great colonies: the one was composed of Assyrians and was removed to the land between Paphlagonia and Pontus, and the other was drawn from Media and planted along the Tanais (the River Don in ancient Scythia — the modern Ukraine, north of the Black Sea, in southern Russia).” See book II, & Sect; 43.

Notice the areas from which these colonies came – ASSYRIA and MEDIA,  the VERY AREAS TO WHICH the HOUSE of ISRAEL was TAKEN CAPTIVE! “So was Israel carried away out of their own land to ASSYRIA unto this day” (II Kings 17:23). “The king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into assyria and placed them in halah and in habor by the river of gozan, and in the cities of the medes” (verse 6).

The House of Israel dwelt in captivity as aliens or strangers among the Assyrians. when the Assyrians were later removed from their homeland to northern asia minor, part of the house of israel migrated with them.

Strabo, the geographer. named the colonists in northern Asia Minor “White Syrians” (12, 3, 9), instead of Assyrians. There were therefore, TWO peoples — Assyrians and White Syrians. Who were these so-called “White Syrians”?

Here’s the proof from None other than the House of Israel which had been carried into Assyrian captivity. “Syria” was the Greek name for the whole eastern Mediterranean coastal strip north of Judea. Because the House of Israel lived in Palestine — southern Syria in Greek terminology — the Greeks called them “White Syrians

By contrast, the dark-complexioned Arameans remained in Syria and dwell there to this day.

When the Assyrians were compelled to migrate to northern Asia Minor, their former slaves –

the”white syrians” or ten-tribed house of Israel – migrated with them!

We find them still there in new testament times. the chief apostle to the house of israel writing to

part of the Ten Lost Tribes dwelling among the Assyrians who originally carried them

captive

SIMON PETER– Parthia [pontus, galatia, cappadocia, asia, bithynia], britain

PAUL  – (apostle to the gentiles, israelites and kings) southern asia minor, british isles

The regions to whichPeter addressed his letter are all located in the northern half of Asia Minor, modern Turkey, immediately westof the  Parthian Empire.

Paul did not preach in these districts. Paul spent his years in Asia Minor in the southern, or

Greek half.  “Yea, so have i strived,” said paul, “to preach the gospel, not where Christ was

named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation“.   (Romans 15:20).

Paul did not preach in the areas where peter and others of the twelve apostles had carried the

Gospel.  Nowhere in your new testament can you find paul preaching in pontus, or cappadocia orBithynia.  These regions were under the jurisdiction of Peter and certain of the twelve

Paul did spread the gospel in the province of Asia – but only in the southernhalf, in the

districts around Ephesus.  Paulwas expressly forbidden to preach in mysia, the northern

district of the Roman province of Asia.

“After they” – Paul and his companions – “were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into 

Bithynia: BUT THE SPIRIT SUFFERED [PERMITTED] THEM NOT. and they passing by

mysia came down to Troas” (Acts 16:7, 8)

Those were the regions in which the lost sheep of the House of Israeldwelt as strangers among

the Gentiles. Paul did preach, on his first journey, in southernGalatia, in the cities of Iconium, Lystra, Derbe (Acts 14)

But nowhere in the New Testament do you find Paul journeying into northernGalatia– the area

to which Peter addresses his letter to the tribes of Israel.

Notice the historic proof– confirming Peter’s letters – that a remnant of the House of Israel was settled on the shores of the Black Sea in northern Asia minor in early New Testament times.  

The history of the early New Testament church is preserved in the Book of Acts. 

Acts ends in  the middle of the story.

Luke doesn’t even finish the life of Paul after his two-years’ imprisonment ended.

Why?

You will find the answer in Christ’s commission to Paul. Even before Paul was baptized, Christ had planned the future work he was to accomplish.

FIRST, PAULwas to teach the GENTILES– which he did in Cyprus, Asia Minor and Greece.

SECOND, PAULwas to appear before KINGS– an event brought about by a two-year imprisonment at Rome.

At the end of that two-year period, during which no accusers had appeared, Paulwould automatically have been releasedaccording to Roman law.

It is at this point that Luke strangely breaks off the story of Paul’s life.    (Acts 28:31)

 But PAUL’S THIRD MISSION was not yet accomplished

Christ had chosen Paul for a threefold purpose – “to bear his name before the GENTILES, and KINGSand the CHILDREN of ISRAEL(Acts 9:15)

PAUL was to END HIS WORK AMONG the LOST TEN TRIBES.

 LUKE was NOT PERMITTED by CHRIST to include in Acts the FINAL JOURNEYS of PAUL’s life.

GOD PURPOSELY EXCLUDEDfrom theBook of ACTS the final chapters in the history of the early true church.

If they had been included, the identity and whereabouts of Israel and of the true church would have been revealed.  

It was NOT THEN GOD’s TIME to make that KNOWN.

JOHN– Gaul? (modern France) from the coastal town of Bethsaida in Galilee (John 1:44).

He was married and had a house in the vicinity of Capernaum

ANDREW  (PETER’S BROTHER) – Cappadocia, Galatia, Bithynia, Scythi, to the very areas in AsiaMinor which Paul bypassed.  Peter’s brother preached to their ancestors – the so-called “white Syrians” – while they abode by the Bosporus and on the Black Sea.

From Greek historians: “In this division Andrew had Scythia and the neighboring countries primarily alloted him for his province.

Andrewfirst travelled through Cappadocia, (upper) Galatia and Bithynia,and instructed them in the faith of Christ, passing all along theEuxine Sea” – the old name for the Black Sea! – “… and so into the solitude of Scythia

One early Greek author gives these journeys in special detail, just as if Luke had written anaccount of the other apostles as he did of Paul.  Andrew “went next to Trapezus, a maritime city on the Euxine Sea, whence after many other places he came to Nice, where he stayed two years, preaching and working miracles with great success … thence to Nicomedia, and so to Chalcedon;

whence sailing through the Propontis he came by the Euxine sea to Heraclea, and from thence to Amastris ….   he next came to Sinope, a city situated upon the same sea, … here he met with his brother Peter, with whom he stayed a considerable time …. departing hence, he went again to Amynsus and then … he proposed to return to Jerusalem” – the headquarters church. “whence after some time he betook himself … to the country of abasgi [a land in the caucasus]

Hence he removed into … Asiatic Scythia or Sarmatia, but finding the inhabitants very barbarous and intractable, he stayed not long among them, only at Cherson, or Chersonesus, a great and populous city within the Bosporus [the modern Crimea].

Andrew continued for some time, instructing them and confirming them in the faith. Hence taking ship, he sailed across the sea to Sinope, situated in Paphlagonia“.  (pp. 137-138 Cave’s “Antiquitates Apostolicae”)

After AD 449, Britain was settled by hundreds of thousands of new people not there in Peter’s day.

History knows them as Angles and Saxons.  The angles and saxons came originally fromthe shores of the Black Sea –   where the House of Israel dwelt.  In AD 256 the  Angles and Saxons began to migrate from northern asia minor along the shores of the Black Sea to the Cymbric peninsula (Denmark), opposite Britain.

In AD 598, when the Bishop of Rome sent Augustineto bring Catholicism to England he found the inhabitants were already professing Christians!

Their ancestors had already heard the message from one of the twelve apostles.  These were the people to whose ancestors Peter wrote his epistles.  

Scottish traditions report that Andrew preached to their ancestors.  From this region, and from Scythia north of the Black Sea, migrated the ancestors of the Scots and Anglo-Saxons.

They are of the House of Israel – or else Andrew disobeyed his commission! 

JAMES (brother of John), beheaded by Herod (Acts 12), was born in the city of Bethsaida inGalilee, the son of Zebedee and Salome, and brother of John the Apostle.

Another apostle sentto the lost sheep of the house of israel ends in the British Isles – in Ireland as well as in Britain.

JAMES, son of Alphaeus went west, into Spain, Britain and Ireland, where he plantedChristianity. (p. 148 of Cave’s work)

Another Apostle sent to the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel, some early writers were confused by the fact that two of the twelve apostles were named James.  James, son of Alphaeus, was the one who left Palestine after the first twelve years.

The deeds of this apostle are sometimes mistakenly assigned to James, John’s brother.

But that James was already martyred by Herod (Acts 12:2)

Why Spain?  From ancient times Spain was the high road of migration from the eastern Mediterranean Sea to the Britain.  The ancient royal house of Ireland for a time dwelt in Spain.

Eusebius, in his third book of “evangelical demonstrations”, chapter 7, admitted that the apostles“passed over to those which are called the BRITISH ISLES.”

He wrote: “some of the Apostles preached the Gospel in the British Isles”.

the British Eusebius, in his third   book of “evangelical demonstrations”, chapter 7, admitted that the apostles“passed over to those which are called the British Isles.”  Eusebius wrote: “some of the apostles preached the gospel in the British Isles.”

In AD 598, when the Bishop of Rome sent Augustineto bring Catholicism to England he found the inhabitants were already professing Christians! their ancestors had already heard the message from one of the twelve apostles.

JUDE, also named LIBBAEUS THADDAEUS, had part in the ministry in ASSYRIAand MESOPOTAMIA, part of PARTHIAwhich Josephusdesignated as still inhabited by the ten tribes.  TheParthian Kingdom, which was composed of the ten tribes ruling over Gentiles, possessed Assyriaand Mesopotamiaduring most of the  New Testament period.

PHILIP– Scythia, upper Asia (northern) Asia Minorwere the regions assigned to Philip 

(see cave’s “antiq. apost.”, p. 168.)   Scythia was the name of the vast plain north of the black and the Caspian Seas. To this region a great colony of Israelites migrated after the fall of thePersian Empire in 331.

THOMAS– Parthia, Media, Persia [carman, hyrcani, bactria — that is iran and afhganistan today], northwest India: these “white indians” – that is, whites living in India – were also known as “Nephthalite Huns”, in later Greek records. They were connected with the tribe of Naphthali.

The “Nephthalite Huns” were overthrown in the sixth century and migrated into Scandinavia.   The archaeology of Scandinavia confirms this event.   

Greek historians reveal that Thomas brought   the gospel to “Parthia, after which Sophornius and others inform us, that he preached the gospel to the MEDES, PERSIANS, CARMANS, HYRCANI, BACTRIANS, and the NEIGHBOR NATIONS” (Cave’s “antiq. apost.”, p. 189)

Parthia and Britain were Israelite.

Thomas carried the gospel to the Parthian Israelites.

The Israelites lost their identity and became identified with the names of the districts in which they lived.  Josephus, the Jewish historian, was familiar with Parthia as a major dwelling place of the Ten Tribes.

These strange sounding names are the lands we know today as Iran (or Persia) and Afghanistan.

In apostolic days the whole region was subject to the Parthians. Though many Israelites had left the region already, multitudes remained behind, spread over adjoining territory.

Thomas was MARTYRED with a Brahmin sword near Madras, India.

BARTHOLOMEW shared, with Thomas, the same vast plains of Parthia, Media, Persia, northwest India.  Bartholomewalso spent part of his time in neighboring Armeniaand a portion of upper Phrygia in Asia Minor.  Nicephorus termed the area, in his history, the “western and northern parts of Asia,” by which he meant upper Asia minor, modern Turkey today. This was the same district to which Andrewcarried the gospel, and to which Peter sent two of his letters.

MATTHEWMetaphrastes tells us, “went firstinto PARTHIA, and having successfully planted Christianity in those parts, thence travelled to the Asiatic Aethiopia, lying near India.”

For some centuries this region of the Hindu Kush, bordering on Scythia and Parthia, was known as “White India“.  It lies slightly east of the area where the Assyrians settled the Israelite captives.

A natural process of growth led the House of Israel to these sparsely populated regions. From there they migrated to northwest Europe in the sixth century, long after the apostles’ time.

Dorotheus declares Matthew was buried at Hierapolis in PARTHIA.

The PARTHIAN Kingdom was, in fact, a loose union of those lost tribes of ISRAEL who dwelt in central Asia during this period. The Persians finally drove them all out.  The Parthian Kingdom was defeated by Persia in 226 AD.  

EXPELLED from PARTHIA, the TEN TRIBES and the Medes MOVED NORTH of the Black Sea, into SCYTHIA.

Whenever Parthia prospered, other nations prospered.  Whenever the Parthians suffered reverses, other nations suffered.  Remember the Scripture: “And I will BLESS them that bless thee, and CURSE him that curseth thee” (Genesis 12:3)

SIMON the ZEALOTFrom the Greek records, Simon“directed his journey toward Egypt, then to Cyrene,and Africa, throughout Mauritania and all Libya, Mauritania – Roman Province.

“Preaching the Gospel …. nor could the coldness of the climate benumb his zeal, or hinder him from whipping himself and the Christian doctrine over to the western islands, yea, even to BRITAIN itself.  Here Simon preached and wrought many miracles ….”

Nicephorus and Dorotheus both wrote “that he went at last into BRITAIN, and … was CRUCIFIED… and BURIED there“. (p. 203 of Cave’s “antiq. apost.”)

Another of the twelve apostles is found preaching to the lost tribes of israel in Britain and the West.  

But what is SIMON the ZEALOT doing in NORTH AFRICA?  

Were remnants of the House of  Israel there, too?

Had some fled westward in 721 B.C. at the time of the Assyrian conquest of Palestine?

Geoffrey of Monmouth: “the Saxons… went unto Gormund, king of the Africans, in Ireland, wherein, adventuring thither with a vast fleet, he had conquered the folk of the Country.  

As they MIGRATED, their NAME and LANGUAGE CHANGED.

They were known as Saka, Sajoi, Sacae, Sakasuna, Kumri, Saxons, all meaning “sons of ISAAC”. 

The Saxons sailed across with a hundred and sixty thousand Africans into Britain … (and) laid waste, as has been said, well-nigh the whole island with his countless thousands of Africans” (bk. xi,sect. 8, 10)

These countless thousands were not negroes, or Arabs. They were whites – Nordics– who came from North Africa and Mauritania, where Simon preached.

These Nordics, declares the “universal history” (1748-vol. xviii, p. 194), “gave out, that their ancestors were driven out of Asia by a powerful enemy, and pursued into Greece; from whence they made their escape” to north Africa.  But this … was to be understood only of the white nations inhabiting some parts of western Barbary and Numidia.

What white nation was driven fromthe western shores of western asia? the House of Israel! their powerful enemy? The Assyrians!

For almost three centuries after the time of Simon Zelotes these Saxons remained in Mauritania. But they are not in North Africa today.  They arrived in Britain shortly after AD  449 at the time of the Anglo-Saxon invasion.

In AD 598, when the Pope sent Augustine to bring Catholicism toEngland he found the inhabitants were already professing Christians –their ancestors had already heard the message from one of the twelve apostles.

MATTHIAS(replaced Judas Iscariot)Dacia (Romania), upper Macedonia

Ethiopic and Greek sources designate Dacia (modern Romania) and Nacedonia, north of Greece, as part of the ministry of Matthias. Dacia was the extreme western part of Scythia.

From Dacia came the Normans who ultimately settled in France and Britain.

JOHN: The French tradition that Mary, the mother of Jesus, journeyed into Gaul (modern France) lends heavy weight to John’s having been in Gaul in his earlier years. It was to John that Jesus committed Mary’s care.  She would be where he was working.

Paul knew Gaul to be an area settled by the House of Israel.  He bypassed Gaul on his way from Italy to Spain (Romans 15:24, 28). Gaul must have been reached by one of the twelve. 

The identity of Israel, from secular sources, is itself also independent and absolute proof of where the twelve apostles carried out God’s work.   John 7:34, 35

Christianity would spread west and north into the Mediterranean world,  a world with “Israelite” traces. Jesus’ disciples went to the Greek-Mediterranean world.

MARY MAGDALENE and LAZARUS settled in MARSEILLES, FRANCE.

Paul originally planned to go “east” into Asia, BUTwas “constrained” from going east.         

Paul states he was stopped, ending up goingWEST.  

Paul’s church (and letter) to Israelite “Galatians” in Asia Minor (Turkey today).

Paul mentions a planned visit to Spain.(Rom 15:24, 28)  Did Paul visit britain ?

Paul visited Rome, who’s church was led by descendents of the British royal family (Caradoc,

“Caractacus”)  Caradoc had been captured by the Romans and held in Rome under “house arrest”.  The home of Caradoc’s daughter Gladys was the Roman “Church”.

CELTIC-BRITISH PEOPLES = ISRAELITES ?

   ARE TODAY’s CELTIC and BRITISH PEOPLES DESCENDANTS of “ISRAEL”?

   The CHOICES? – OTHER “HISTORICAL” PEOPLES – SLAVS, TURKS, CHINESE ?
