The Israelites Today are divided between Judah (i.e. the present-day Jews), and the Ten Tribes who are mainly among Western Peoples. The main influences in the word today are (1) Ishmael (Islam and the Arabs); (2) Esau (non-Israelite Europe and Asia); and (3) Israel i.e. the Ten Tribes and Judah.
How is science able explain the floating rock miracle found in Jerusalem?
There is no floating rock in Jerusalem. The Dome of the Rock is on the Temple Mount. It is believed to be the site of the original Temple. Inside the Dome of the Rock there is a rock. It is not however floating but rather resting in its place, see photo below. This was where Abraham was about to sacrifice his son before the angel stopped him. The Bible says the son about to be sacrificed was Isaac the son of Abraham by Sarah. Muslims however tell me that in their sources the son concerned is Ishmael the son of Abraham by Hagar the Egyptian handmaiden of Sarah.
The Promised Blessings began with Abraham. He was the first Patriarch and to him was it promised to become,
"A great nation, and in you will all the families of the earth be blessed" (Genesis 12:2-3). "And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly" (Genesis 17:2).
"I will make nations of you and kings shall come out of you; And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto you, and to your seed after you" (Genesis 17:6-7).
Ishmael (Father of the Arabs):
Genesis (TLB) 16:
9-12 [The angel addresses Hagar maidservant of Sarah and mother of Ishmael]: Return to your mistress and act as you should, for I will make you into a great nation. Yes, you are pregnant and your baby will be a son, and you are to name him Ishmael ("God hears"), because God has heard your woes. This son of yours will be a wild one, free and untamed as a wild ass! He will be against everyone, and everyone will feel the same toward him. But he will live near the rest of his kin.
Ishmael became the physical and spiritual forerunner of Islam and the Arabs. They know who they are but resent having to play second fiddle to the descendants of Isaac and through Isaac to Israel.
They seek to replace Israel.
Abraham begat Ishmael and Isaac. Ishmael traditionally was the forefather of many of the Arabs. Isaac (NOT Ishmael) received the covenant promise and to him devolved the promised blessings:
"My covenant will I establish with Isaac" (Genesis 17:21);
"I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him" (Genesis 17:19).
God informed Abraham,
"In Isaac shall your seed be called" (Genesis 21:21).
Esau and Jacob
Isaac begat the twins Esau and Jacob. Of Esau it was foretold,
"By thy sword shall you live, and shalt serve your brother" (Genesis 27:40).
Esau became ancestor to the founder settlers of early Rome and to part of the German people (Talmud, Megilla 6), as well as to part of the ruling elite in Continental Europe.
"And Esau hated Jacob because of the Blessing where with his father blessed him" (Genesis 27:41).
Esau became the physical progenitor of many in Europe and also possibly in Japan.
[Yair Davidiy has written a book on this matter.]
Esau became the incarnation of God in Christian theology.
Jacob becomes Israel
Jacob received the Blessings promised to Abraham and to Isaac. The Children of Jacob were to become the Chosen People. Isaac blessed Jacob,
"God Almighty bless you, and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may bea Community of Peoples [Hebrew: Kahal Amim]; And give you the blessing of ABRAHAM, to you and to your seed with you" (Genesis 28:2-3).
Jacob was given the additional name ISRAEL. NOTE that Jacob was given the blessing of Abraham. Jacob is the heir of Abraham, not Ishmael, and not Esau. Jacob became known as Israel.
"Your name shall be called no more Jacob, But ISRAEL; for as a prince have you power with God and with men and have prevailed" (Genesis 32:8).
"Your name is Jacob: your name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be your name: and He called his name ISRAEL" (Genesis 35:10).
Jacob (Israel) had Twelve Sons,
"Now the sons of Jacob were twelve" (Genesis 36:22).
