Who are the lost tribes of Israel?

Joseph’s two sons were Ephraim and Manasseh.  The tribe Manasseh is dominant in the United States, and Ephraim constitutes the Anglo-Saxon, English speaking member countries of the British Commonwealth – such as Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and part of South Africa.

The tribe of Judah (the Jews) is scattered among all nations, with a large number living in the modern nation of Israel.

Putting together the information available from biblical and secular history as well as prophecy, we can be reasonably certain that other tribes are located as follows:

•        Reuben – France

•        Dan – Ireland and a branch of Denmark that mixed with the northern tribes

•        Benjamin – Norway and Iceland

•        Zebulun – Holland (the Netherlands)

•        Issachar – Finland

•        Gad – Switzerland

•        Asher – Belgium and Luxembourg

•        Naphtali – Sweden

•        Levi and Simeon – scattered among the other Israelite nations.

It should be noted that gentiles (people of a non-Israelite lineage) from many nations have also settled among these nations, especially in the big cities.
