Our youngest daughter got married and consumed most of my time this year… As a sister in the Lord said: “There are a few things as beautiful as a bride”
I am bringing an update of the 37th International Jewish Genealogy that was held close to home, so I went to see what they had to say, and I would like to share with you some important things in the event.
For one, Bennett Greenspan, the CEO of Family tree DNA proves wrong the Book “The 13th Tribe”, where people speculates whether the Jews are an invented race, as just people descendants of the Kazars (A kingdom in the middle ages, now known as Ukraine, where the king converted to Judaism and oblige everyone to adopt Judaism as the national official religion) or even the State of Israel is an invention of the Jews.
We all know that it is not true by evidence in Archeology, History, The Tanack, etc., but it is nice to have it prove with Science, through DNA as Bennett did.
He just gave us the information in his database (over 1,000,000 people’s DNA tested),
He shows us as you see below the pie chart of the Sephardim Jews, the pie chart of the Ashkenazi Jews and the pie chart of the Arabs, even though he calls it Middle East. The distribution of the Y-chromosome haplogroup of the three of them is very similar, and the Jews and Arabs are cousins, remember Ishmael and Isaac were half-brothers and Yacov and Esau were twins, where Yacov is the father of the Israelites (wrongly, some may call them Jews) and Esau/Ishmael are the fathers of the Arabs.
So of course, their DNA would have to be very similar.
Then Bennett compares their DNA pie chart to the original people of Ukraine (Remember the Kazars of the middle ages is in Ukraine now)…. Then you get a very different picture!!!
Proving this way that the Jews have existed as long as the Arabs have been, and that hence Israel has always survived for thousands of years as they proclaimed in their Sacred Scriptures and leaving it as a testimony.
He did not prove the later, but he proved the first, But the second follows through…
The second, that the state of Israel have existed for millenniums is proved with the archeology of the Dead Sea Scroll.
See, the Muslim have always said that The Bible has been changed by the Jews and the Christians… Since many people do not study the Bible and many have not felt the urge to go out there and prove it right or wrong, many believed this lie : “say a lie many times and eventually people (that are like sheep) will get to believe the lie as true”.
But Hashem in His infinite knowledge, must have laughed from heaven. Islam started approximately in the year 600 aC, and The Lord 800 years before Had a group of people called the Essenes write every Book of the Tanack or Old Testament, except the Book of Esther, and hid it in clay vases in the desert of Israel. All these Books of the Bible were not found until after the year 1947…. Way after Islam was born and the lie was spread…
Archeologist and linguistics found that there was no difference between the Dead sea scrolls and the Tanack that we have today… Only about 5 letters of difference that did not change the meaning of the Text.
So no one change the Tanack or Old Testament…it must be true when Hashem is speaking to Yaacov in Genesis 35:12
בראשית פרק לה
Genesis Chapter 35
יב. וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר נָתַתִי לְאַבְרָהָם וּלְיִצְחָק לְךָ אֶתְנֶנָה וּלְזַרְעֲךָ אַחֲרֶיךָ אֶתֵן אֶת-הָאָרֶץ:
12. And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to you I will give it, and to your seed after you will I give the land.
The Second thing we learned is that they are doing Next Generation Sequences (NGS), where they test thousands of SNP in the Y-chromosome. Some of you have done this already, FTDNA uses it in the BIG Y test to determine the final branch of the Y-haplogroup of an individual. In a cheap way, they can check long sequence segments of DNA, instead of testing 37 STR genetic markers in the DNA that may change every so many years, but to make it cheaper we used to use the STR’s to predict the Y-Haplogroup, and then only check the SNP to confirm the Y-haplogroup of that person.
Third, Geneticist continue to believe that the Y-chromosome haplogroup “J” contains the biological descendants of Yaakov, and that not even splits of J2a and J2b can both be biological descendants of Jacobs, but that more data needs to be reviewed.
As you can notice, the distribution by Y-Chromosome haplogroups have not changed much among the “Jews”.
I believe we need to test ancient DNA, aDNA, and determine the genetic mutations from the past to the present, instead of how we do it now, from the present to the past using mathematics, which is a branch that does not accept any variants nor the environmental conditions under which these human ancestors lived and may have caused accelerating or slowing down the mutations.
The good news is that now, geneticists have accepted the backward mutation as existing.
It is amazing to see the detail of the persecution of the Jews in the world, in America, Cuba, Shanghai not to mention Europe…what about today in their homeland in the Middle East? It is maddening and un-comprehensible… The reality must be another force pushing humanity to this level of dehumanization against another human being… The record of anti-Semitism that our brothers the Jews have kept is so meticulous that many outsider’s heart will brake, but most importantly it should inspire them never to be passive and let it happen again.
Persecution of a human beings, like the Israelites should not have happened, even if some of our brothers that call themselves Jews, do discriminate against others using every means possible.
In Humanity, there is always good and bad wherever you go… The evidence shows that only One has the record of being a human and not make a mistake, a true Jew form the tribe of Judah named Yeshua.
May the Lord will continue to lead us in finding His tribes by DNA. Thanking you for your zeal to work in this endeavor…
In Yeshua’s love, Alex and Georgina
