#3. Who is Ephraim?
7. Question. What can Biblical Place-Names in the USA tell us?
Answer: We did a study, "Biblical Place Names in America", that showed that very many place-names in the USA are derived from the Bible. We analysed the Tribal allocation of these names and found Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) to be overwhelmingly in the ascendant. Here and there however the place-names of other tribes were found and these tended to be bunched together according to their tribe. Someone could conceivably ascribe all this to chance but we saw in it the Hand of Divine Providence.

#3. Were the Melungeons Jewish?
9. Question. Were the Founding Fathers of the USA aware of their Israelite Ancestry?
Answer. The idea that major segments of the American population were of Israelite origin was probably present from the very beginning. Whether or not this belief was actually held by the Founding Fathers and important personages is uncertain but they often made statements that were consistent with such an assumption.

11. Question. What do the Bible Codes indicate concerning America?
Answer: The Bible Codes show that the American USA belongs to the Tribe of Joseph being especially connected to that portion of Manasseh that was once east of the Jordan. The Codes show that America is part of Israel, that Judah is an important part of America, that the fate of America is connected to the Return of the Lost Ten Tribes, and much more.
See "The USA in Biblical Codes".

12. Question. (a) What Parallels Exist between the borders of the USA and those of Ancient Israel? (b) What does this tell us?
(a) We drew up a rough map showing the Borders of the Promised Land as we understood them to be.
Brief Explanations for many of our claims on this matter may be seen at:
The Land of Israel
Dean Smallwood noticed that by rotating our map and comparing it to that of the USA a definite similarity may be observed. See the maps below.

(b) What does this tell us?
We cannot say what this tells us for sure if indeed it tells us anything and may not be attributed to pure chance.
On the other hand there are indications (that we have noted in the past) that in the Latter Times the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel as well as Judah toa degree will receive some degree of primary self-expression through the USA.
The simliarity between the maps may be a reflection of this truth.

Comparisons Pointed Out by Dean Smallwood
Notice the Similarities Between the Map of the Land of Israel as Promised in Scripture to that of the Borders of the USA!
