Exploring the Lost Tribes of Israel
In recent years, a new theology has become popular in some Christian circles, often referred to as the Two Houses of Israel. Some Christians find authenticity and identity with the Lost Tribes of Israel, those tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel who were exiled by Assyria, as described in II Kings Chapter 17, and then disappeared. What exactly is this theology and how does it relate to Christian-Jewish relations?
Kimberly Troup, Christian Zionist director of CFOIC Heartland’s US office, and Tommy Waller, also a Christian Zionist, summarize the theology as they understand it, questioning some of its premises and ramifications. Sondra Oster Baras, an Orthodox Jew who has devoted her life to reaching out to Christians all over the world to bless Israel, presents a Jewish perspective on the Lost Tribes and various ways to interpret the Scriptures that refer to their ultimate reunification with Judah. This is a discussion you won’t want to miss, as these three individuals discuss a very controversial issue with sensitivity and Scriptural foundation.
