Proofs and Observations by Eric (TubalCain)
Deuteronomy 33:15,16 speaks of mineralogical blessings to Joseph. On this point, Canada has some of the largest rare earth oxide deposits in the world that are vital for the semiconductor industry: Indium,Niobium,etc. Australia is also mineral rich.
Mycenaeans and Dan
Another connection between the Mycenaean Danaoi [Tribe of Dan] and old Scandinavia! In Homer and Mycenae by the Swedish archaeologist Martin P. Nilsson p. 74. Noting that the Megaron complexes found at Tiryns,Greece were very different than Minoan architecture he then says "is identical with the hall of the old Scandinavian Kings". This demonstrates still another connection between the bronze age Danaoi of Greece and Scandinavia.
William Camden (2 May 1551-9 Nov 1623) wrote a history "Britannia" (1607). In this history he claimed that the Saxons were the "sons of Sacae" who had lived in Persia at the time of Alexander the Great. This was written long before the British Empire and the United States. It was also written before the scientific revolution,the industrial revolution or the more recent discoveries in archaeology.
Architecture - Megaron.
Blessings. I read that the megaron architectural structure used in Mycenaean Greece had counterparts in ancient Scandinavia and ancient Cyprus (eastern Mediteranean). All places associated with the Tribe of Dan.
It should not be thought that ancient historical mysteries may not be resolved. Linear B,an ancient unknown language,was unresolved and unread for thousands of years. It was finally deciphered by Michael Ventris in the early 1950s, He was the first person in over 30 centuries to read Linear B which turned out to be a very archaic version of the Greek language. Linear A, a language associated with the Minoan culture, remains undeciphered. Linear A could possibly be a language that is partially phonetic and partially composed of pictograms like the ancient Egyptian language. A cynical attitude that research into archaeology,linguistics and history cannot shed light on the whereabouts of the lost tribes should not be adopted.
Harosheth Hagoyyim "smithy of the nations" was associated with the Kenites-a sign that the Kenites had skill in metallurgy.. Adam Zertal believes it was occupied by the Shardana sea people.
Psalm 88 and 89 refer to the King David and Psalm 89 to his regnal covenant.The dedications mention Heman the Ezrahite and Ethan the Ezrahite.The Ezrahites are mentioned in 1 Chronicles 4:17,18 where their connection with Egypt is mentioned. Other scriptures show that the Ezrahites are the Zerah clan of the tribe of Judah. Why connect the Zerahites with Psalm 89 unless they would be operative in preserving the regnal continuity of King David's dynasty? 1 Chron 2:6 mention Ethan and Heman of Zerah,1 Kings 4:31.
Jeremiah 15:11,12,14 "Surely it will be well with your remnant [King Zedekiah's daughters?]...Can anyone break iron, the northern iron [Bible Commentators say that this is a reference to the Chalybes in the ancient Georgian Republic;they were among the ancient Gaels of Ireland and Scotland]...and I will make you cross over with your enemies into a land you do not know"
This was a continuation of the Lord's earlier words to Jeremiah:
"For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land" The Chalybes were the Calebites of the Royal tribe of Judah. King David even reigned in their city of Hebron and Bethlehem was associated with the Calebites.
Brath, son of Death [De Ath] , was at Tyre at the time of Nebuchadnezzar's invasion.
