I Thessalonians 5:20, 21

Do not despise expounding of scripture, but scrutinize all things. Hold fast that which is right.

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium

- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.

Were the Japanese Descendants of One of the Lost Tribes of Israel?

I just discovered some of the videos listed below "No longer exist." I'll be working on replacing them soon. I did discover this link, Israelites Come to Japan, providing more detail about the influence of the Israelites on Japanese culture.

There exists much evidence that one or more of the supposedly Lost Tribes of Israel, were involved in the origins of the Japanese people. See The Biblical Hebrew Origins of the Japanese People by Joseph Eidelberg and watch the above video.

However, keep in mind, that the state that we know as Israel, was misnamed by its founders as Israel. It should have been named Judah, as those who have claimed title and a right to this land, the so-called Jews, were not from the Tribes or Kingdom of Israel.  In short, Israel should not be named Israel, but Judah or Judea.

Further, it is misleading for this video to be named, 1/3 Japanese are Jewish. It would be more accurate to ask "Are some of the Japanese descendants from one of the alleged lost tribes of Israel?" None of the  Israelites were Jewish, much like not all Americans are Texans. The misnomer - Jews - was used to refer to those people who came from an area of Palestine known as Judea, not to all Israelites. Just like we have nicknames for people today who come from certain areas, say for example, Texas, is a part of the Untied States and not all Americans are Texans but all Texans are Americans. No Israelites were Jews.

For those interested in further study of this topic, highly recommended is Steven M. Collins books related to the "lost tribes of Israel" and can be found at Steven M. Collins Mr. Collins also has an article wherein which he discusses the link between the tribes of Israel and Japan Japan's Role in Biblical Prophecy. Although I report here on the writings of Mr. Collins, I do not necessarily agree with all of Mr. Collin's views. But, I have found his books and writings interesting reading and thought provoking.
