Now let me tell you about my sect the Jacobians. There is info in the above link. Some of yall are believing coperate Christianity. I do not have all
of my Jacobian lit on me but I will do the best I can to defute certain myths and promote some of our beliefts which are different from other
1) There are only 6 tribes of Israel, not 12. Judah, Gad, Reuben, Simeon, Zebulun, and Issachar. The Levites are a 7th, they were nomads but
eventually inherited land near Egypt.
2) The Kingdom Of Israel is much younger than you think. The first universal ruler came to power in 487 BC.
3) The first universal ruler was an Assyrian King who invaded Israel.
4) This King was known as Sharrukin. (same name as an Assyrian city)
5) King Sharrukin attacked from the north and afterwards Gad disappeared. Assyria then overran the Levites and made their tribe territory military
6) After Sharrukin died at the age of 62 ater ruling the Israelites for 7 years, the Assyrians then pulled out of Israel giving them freedom.
7) The Israelites searched for their own king and elected a man named Beth who became the first ethnic Israelite King.
8) Beth was the birth name of David, David's mother believed the boy to be a girl before he was born. Beth/David in fact was known by us to look
9) King David built the royal palace outside of the walls of Jerusalem. His son Solomon was known as Gilead by us. King Gilead built the temple in 397
10) Gilead began building the Temple as soon as he came to the throne and it took him 7 years. But the sins of the Israelites doomed David's line and
in 378 BC the Midians overran Jerusalem killing the current king Jabesh.
