1. Question on the Racial Origin and Type of Asenath Wife of Joseph

Julio wrote:
 

YAIR,
 
   You mention that the Egyptians of the time of Joseph were similar to the Berbers of North Africa today. It has been suggested by several Churches of God groups that Asenath the mother of the two sons of Joseph was in reality of similar racial stock as the Isrealites that were settled there. One theory that has come to my attention recently was that Asenath in reality was non other than Dinah the very daughter of Jacob.How can we know for sure the racial stock of Asenath and the Egyptians of the time of Joseph? If the elderly Jacob had to adopt these two lads then to me, that would mean that the two boys were not really 100 % Hebrew at all or anywhere even near to being anything even close to that. This is how this very question was answered by one of  these very groups recently: 'We believe that the Egyptians of antiquity were of the same basic racial stock as the Israelites.  Joseph's marriage to an Egyptian was not an act of rebellion, It is also a misnomer by many who think that the Canaanites were all of a different race as well. It is inaccurate to look at the modern day demographics of these world regions and believe that the racial constituents were in any way similar.  There has been a major shifting of entire populations over several thousand years. 
 Could you  please further elaborate on this , thanks

Ancient Egyptians were similar to how they depicted themselves.
See our website:

You have all types there but most of them appear to be East Mediterranean of a darker hue.

The Bible does not tell us anything about Asenath except that she was the daughter of the Priest of On.
[Genesis 41:45] AND PHARAOH CALLED JOSEPH'S NAME ZAPHNATHPAANEAH; AND HE GAVE HIM TO WIFE ASENATH THE DAUGHTER OF POTIPHERAH PRIEST OF ON. AND JOSEPH WENT OUT OVER ALL THE LAND OF EGYPT.

This is all we have to go on and apparently all that is important.
As far as we know Asenath was a real "dinky-die" (Australian expression meaning "fair dinkum" i.e. real) Egyptian lass.
There is a Jewish legend saying that Asenath was really the daughter of Dinah who had made her way to Egypt and been adopted by Potiphera. This however is no more than a legend.
Canaanites were descended from Ham whereas Israelites came from Shem.
To get an idea of what the Israelties looked like see:

2. Different Multiple Tribal Phases in Our Own Lifetimes and Personalities
Point Added to:
Tribal Characteristics in a Nutshell.
http://www.britam.org/tribes/TribecharList.html
These are the Tribes of Israel.
We are here describing Tribal Characteristics. You will recognize some of the Types described in your own family, friends, and neighbors. Each one of us has aspects of all the peoples of the world. All the seventy sons of Noah have left their imprint within us. Beyond that we are also Israelites. Each one of us contains aspects of all the Twelve Tribes. There are also phases. At such-and-such an age we went though the state of a particular tribe. Now we may be in the mode of a different Tribe. Nevertheless Tribal Association is determined by the Father.
Somewhere there is the real "us" and our Tribal inheritance may help us find the key to it.

In addition to the Tribe there were also Tribal Clans and each clan had it own uniqueness.
An analysis of the different clans etc is beyond the scope of the present study.
Our aim at present is merely to present a brief outline and framework for further inquiry.

5. Joan Griffith: Wikipedia on the Name Caesar
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1222

Hi all,
Caesar/Tsar/Czar
Wikipedia reveals a number of possible derivations at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etymology_of_the_name_of_Julius_Caesar

Roman nomenclature is somewhat different from the modern English form. Gaius, Iulius, and Caesar are Caesar's praenomen, nomen, cognomen, respectively. In modern usage, his full name might be something like "Gaius Iulius-Caesar", where 'Caesar' denoted him as a member of the 'Caesarian' family branch of the 'Iulian' clan, and 'Gaius' was his personal name. Contemporary writers sometimes referred to him as "Gaius Caesar". His grand-nephew, Gaius Octavius, duly took the full name "Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus" upon his posthumous adoption in 44 BC, and the name became fused with the imperial dignity; in this sense it is preserved in the German and Russian words Kaiser and Tsar (sometimes spelled Czar), both of which refer to an emperor. Compare the Hungarian, Slavic and Turkish words for "king", forms of kral, all adapted from the personal name of Charlemagne.

The original meaning of the name is unknown. The four most common derivations of the cognomen "Caesar" are given by the writer of the Historia Augusta (Aelius 2.3):
from caesaries, 'hair', because the founder of this branch of the family was born with a full head of hair. (Julius Caesar himself was balding in later life.) This is the etymology favored by Festus.
from caesius, an eye color variously translated today as 'grey', 'blue-grey', and even 'blue'. (Julius Caesar himself had black eyes, Suet. Jul. 45.) from caesum, 'cut out', because the first Caesar was cut from his mother's womb (see Caesarean section). This is the etymology favored by Pliny the Elder (VII.ix.47 ? Latin, English). (Julius Caesar himself could not have been so delivered, because this dangerous operation was normally done only upon a dead woman, and his mother was known to have lived for many years after his birth.) from caesai, a "Moorish" (maybe Punic) word for "elephant" because the first Caesar had killed such a beast in battle.
