The Anglo-Israel Truth!

Distinguishing Marks of Israel:

The Jewish Chronicle for May 2nd, 1879, said, “The fate of the Lost Ten Tribes is a mystery which has a peculiar fascination for some minds… the Scriptures speak of a future restoration of Israel… The problem, then, is reduced to the simplest form. The Ten Tribes are certainly in existence. All that has to be done is to discover which people represent them.” [The italics are ours.]

Particular attention is drawn to the following facts concerning present latter day Israel:

  • The scattered Israelites would be gathered into a place of safety (Jer. 31:10; 2 Sam. 7:10); evidently islands and coastlands (Isa. 41:1; 24:14-15), situated northwest from Palestine (Jer. 3:18; Hos. 11:10).

  • Their land would become too small, and they would spread out to the very ends of the earth (Isa. 49:20; 54:3; Deut. 33:17).

  • They had to inherit and colonize the waste parts of the world (Isa. 35:1; 49:8).

  • They would grow into a “company of nations” (Gen. 35:11; 48:19), “many nations” (Gen. 17:5-6)

  • They would be a missionary people, taking the gospel “Word of the Lord” to the ends of the earth (Isa. 49:6).

  • They would have a royal monarchy, with kings and queens (Gen. 17:6).

  • They would be a great and warlike people (Micah 5:8; Jer. 31:7; 51:20).

  • They had to possess the “Gate of their enemies” (Gen. 22:17).

  • They would rule over many nations and be ruled over by none (Deut. 15:6).

  • They had to be a blessing to all the families of mankind (Gen. 28:14; Isa. 58:6-7; Micah 5:7).

  • Their territory would be distinguished for mineral and agricultural wealth (Deut. 33:13-16).

  • This is but a small portion of the Biblical evidence! This website has teaching articles regarding the people of Israel and the Biblical covenants.

    Anglo-Israel Review of Recommended Books

    We recommend two of the leading Anglo-Israel author-researchers whose books are in current print: Steven M. Collins and W.H. Bennett. Their books are listed below with a short synopsis of each:

    Origins and Empires of Ancient Israel by Steven M. Collins

    Steven M. Collins, Anglo-Israel authorThis book discusses the early history of Israel beginning with the Abrahamic Covenant through the end of the reign of King Solomon. In successive chapters, little-known and little-understood history of early Israel is explored with fascinating information that sheds light on that important era of Biblical history. The lives of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph are retold in context of history and prophecy, and the story of the formation of the twelve tribes of Israel. The interesting background to the story of Joseph and the Israelites in Egypt is especially good reading. The account of Moses and the Exodus reveals the true location of Mount Sinai, corresponding to its description in the New Testament that has been ignored by scholars for too long. Israel's rise to greatness under King David, and its "golden age" under King Solomon round out the closing chapters. Over a hundred maps, charts, and illustrations accompany each of Mr. Collins four current books, and help the reader to visualize the story as it unfolds in the books. (See author's photo to the left.) This book is 280 pages and is thoroughly indexed. It has beautiful original cover artwork. Highly recommended!!!

    Israel's Lost Empires by Steven M. Collins

    This interesting book tells the historical account of a tragic period in Israel's history. It begins with Israel's promising golden age, and a discussion of evidence of Hebrew-Phoenician sea voyages and colonization in north Africa and the western Mediterranean coastlands. Strong evidence is given that much of the so-called "Phoenician" empire was in fact Hebrew-based. The central chapter on the colony of Carthage in Africa is especially interesting, with solid evidence of its Hebrew founding and close connections with ancient Israel and her rulers. As an interesting sidelight, evidence is presented of Hebrew sea voyages that reached across the Atlantic Ocean to North America, whether by accident or design originally. Finally, Israel's decline and exile from Canaan is retold with new information on the connection between exiled, dispersed Israel and the Scythian Sacae (also spelled "Saka"). This book also has over a hundred maps and pictures to illustrate the text. It is 280 pages and completely indexed. The color painting on the cover is quite stunningly beautiful. An excellent book.

    Parthia: Forgotten Ancient Superpower And Its Role In Biblical History

    by Steven M. Collins

    This is another very interesting book by the leading Anglo-Israel author in the world today. It tells the story of Israel's eastward migrations, centering on the ancient empire of Parthia on the southern shore of the Caspian Sea. This little-known people are mentioned by name in the New Testament in the Book of Acts 2:9-11. The name Parthi meant "exiles", and they were unknown in history until the sixth century, B.C. In 140 B.C. their vast empire reached from the Indus to the Euphrates, and from the Euphrates to the Caucasus. Bishop Laurence, who wrote in 1838, said the Parthians were in the northern districts of the Caspian and Euxine, and likely to be one of the tribes carried away by Shalmaneser, who never returned. Other Biblical references, such as "The Bible Handbook" by Dr. Joseph Angus (Religious Tract Society, London) confirmed the Hebrew-Parthian connection, and a map from this reference work is reproduced in Mr. Collins' book. Part two of this book discusses the "missing years of Christ" between the ages of twelve and thirty, and his confirmed absence from Judea during this time. The final part of the book discusses the Judean ministry of Christ and the Parthian offer of sanctuary to our Savior. Truly a remarkable study and we are sure that there is nothing else like it on this subject in print anywhere today. You will be fascinated and amazed at the unfolding of this story. It is 256 pages and well-indexed, with over a hundred maps and illustrations throughout. You will really enjoy this book.

    Israel's Tribes Today by Steven M. Collins

    This book tells the story of Israelite migrations from the fall of Parthia to their final locations in the world today. New research presented gives a link between the Parthians and both the Scythians and Goths of later history, links between the Asian "Sacae" and the European Saxons, and links between the Asian "Germanii" and the later European Germans. Other connections are established as well, including the link between the Asian "Jats" and the later European "Jutes," as well as the Israelite tribe of Naphtali and their later historical name, the Asian "Nephthalites." A great amount of new historical research went into this book, which the reader will appreciate. The second part of the book discusses each of the twelve tribes of Israel, their heraldry and marks of identification, and their location in the world today. This is a well-written and quite fascinating account of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. This book is 296 pages and very well indexed. We would call this the most popular of Mr. Collins' books, but the fact is that most people end up ordering all of his other titles as well because they enjoy them all so much! This also has over a hundred illustrations to accompany the text, a book you will thoroughly enjoy.

    All of the above four books by Steven Collins are available direct from his publisher, Bible Blessings Christian Resources, at their website:

    Symbols Of Our Celto-Saxon Heritage by W.H. Bennett

    This beautifully-illustrated book has colorful heraldic artwork on nearly every-other page. It was a work of a life-time, as author W.H. Bennett, a long-time Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, not only researched dozens of towns and counties all across Europe, but corresponded with them for detailed information of their heraldic history. Two professional artists drew all of the heraldry in this book in full color, and Mr. Bennett contributed a fascinating account of the Biblical background of each illustration. The book is 210 glossy pages with many dozens of fine color illustrations that will make Biblical heraldry come alive for you. The book is sold for US$25.00 and is a bargain at that price, considering all of the extensive color artwork throughout. You will enjoy and treasure this fine work.

    The Story Of Celto-Saxon Israel by W.H. Bennett

    This is Mr. Bennett's companion work, and is also very well illustrated with over 175 black-and-white maps and drawings well-distributed throughout the text of this book. This is a sort of compilation of articles from a newspaper column written by the author for the Windsor, Ontario, Star over a dozen years. The information was revised and expanded into book form, and makes an excellent addition to the information contained in his "Symbols" book. In this book the author examines twelve early tribes that migrated into Europe between 500 B.C. and 200 A.D., and shows the Israelite traits and characteristics of each of them. The information was developed over a half-century of research and the scholarship is excellent. Several readers have told us that this is the single very best book ever written on the subject of the lost tribes of Israel and their connection with the tribes of early Europe. The book is nearly 250 pages and very well indexed. A perusal of the index will give you a clear idea of the tremendous amount of research that went into this one book. You will enjoy reading this and pondering the strong evidence for the Anglo-Israel interpretation of the Bible.

    The above two books by W.H. Bennett can be ordered from either the above Bible Blessings website or from the publisher, CBIA-The Servant People, at their website:
