Dear Mr. Collins,
I recently purchased 5 of your books and just finished reading “The ‘Lost’ Ten Tribes of Israel…Found!” It is my understanding that the books were written in a certain order and should be read in that order for better understanding of Israel’s history. Please clarify that “order” for me?
Also, in the first book, I was not clear on what you were stating about the line of David. It seemed that you were saying that the Phares line was fulfilling the scepter promise of Davidic dynasty. Pares was the ancestor of David, not of David’s progeny. It was my understanding that the throne of David was overturned by God (using Jeremiah) and David’s line continued through the “kings daughters” who traveled with Jeremiah to Ireland where they were “grafted” into the kingly line into Zerah (Phares’ twin brother) thus healing the ancient breach between Phares and Zerah. The throne of David was again “overturned” to Scotland, then to England where that throne is today. How could it be that David’s “line” be in Carthage, Partha, etc?
Incidentally, the understanding opened to me about the US and Britain was from the writings of Herbert W. Armstrong. God, in His infinite mercy added my wife and me to His Church in 1969.
Dear Mr. Hubbell,
I apologize for the delayed response. An electronic glitch delayed my receipt of your (and other) emails.
My first book, The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel…Found!, was first released in 1996 and it has had several printings. It covers the history of the so-called “lost” ten tribes of Israel from the reign of Kings David and Solomon to the present. My new four-book set are derivative books which are based on my first book. The four newest books include much material which was not available at the time my first book went to print. The new books also include hundreds of illustrations, photographs of key ancient artifacts, indexes, etc. All the books are intended not only to provide fascinating historical evidence about the ten tribes, but also to show that the Bible is factually and literally accurate.
The first book in my expanded series is The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel, and it begins with the calling of Abraham. It discusses the patriarchal period, showing how early events shaped the development of each tribe’s history and the unfolding of the “birthright” promises given to Abraham. Also included is hard evidence of the Israelites’ captivity in Egypt and the real “Mt. Sinai.” It also covers the time of the Israelites’ Golden Age under Kings David and Solomon. The second book in the series, Israel’s Lost Empires, continues the documentation of the Israelites’ Golden Age and their global impact, the decline of Israel and Judah in the Divided Kingdom period, the phased migrations of the tribes from the Promised Land and the emergence of two new Israelite powers of Scythia and Carthage. There is much evidence that these powers were predominantly Israelite, but this evidence has not generally been made known.
The third book in my series, Parthia: The Forgotten Ancient Superpower, documents the hidden but readily available history of the greatest Israelite Empire in the ancient world: Parthia. Classical Greco-Roman writers wrote an immense amount of information about Parthia, but much of this information has not been included in history books and rarely has it been examined in a biblical context. For example, how many people realize the Magi (or “Wise Men”) mentioned in the Bible were high Parthian officials and that they traveled with huge numbers of escorts? It was the army of escorts traveling with the Magi to Jerusalem which scared King Herod and all the residents of Jerusalem (Matthew 2:3). Jesus Christ’s life took place during a peaceful lull in the otherwise warlike history between the Roman and Parthian Empires. This book examines the life of Jesus Christ in light of the geopolitics which greatly affected his life. Even Roman records acknowledge Parthia as an empire which was the “equal” of Rome. Its hidden history and forgotten power is made clear in this book. The final book in my 4-part series, Israel’s Tribes Today, examines the history of the Israelite tribes’ migrations after the fall of the immense Parthian Empire in Asia. The Goths, Saxons, Germans, etc. who poured into Europe as refugees in search of new homelands eventually inundated the Roman Empire. These millions of Caucasian tribes were refugees from the fallen Parthian Empire. The history of their migrations is documented and all the tribes of Israel are identified in our modern world, utilizing both secular records and biblical prophecies about the tribes.
The four-book set is intended to be read in chronological order, but the books can also be read as “stand-alone” books on specific subjects. The offer for the four-book set refers to these four books.
My books do indicate that the “scepter” promise was fulfilled by David’s descendants. Matthew 1 and Luke 3 affirm that David and his royal progeny descended from Pharez. My book traces both ancient and modern dynasties to the progeny of King David. David’s line was not limited to the daughter of King Zedekiah which Jeremiah took to ancient Ireland (an account I do discuss and document in my book series). Carthage was ruled by “shophetim” (“Judges”), and later, by kings from its noble families. My books contain the evidence that the royal houses of Parthia and Scythia were descended from David’s progeny, via the sons of King Jehoichin of Judah who was carried into Babylonian captivity but later elevated to be a vassal king in the Babylonian Empire (II Kings 26:27-30). I Chronicles 3 lists many of the offspring of this king from David’s seed (although the spelling of his name varies). These Babylonian vassal-kings from the line of King David fathered several later dynasties in Scythian and Parthian regions which fulfilled the promise in Jeremiah 33:17 that David’s seed would always have rulers over the tribes of Israel (the ten tribes). Jeremiah 33:22 also prophesied that David’s seed would become extremely numerous. The daughter of King Zedekiah that Jeremiah brought to ancient Ireland was one very small “twig” of the family tree of King David then alive on the earth. My book series includes details on these Davidic kings who ruled in Asian dynasties. These dynasties later migrated into Europe with the main bodies of Israel’s tribes and eventually intermarried with the royal house in the British isles.
