Israelites for Beginners

Is Being an Israelite a Religion?

Firstly, Israelites for beginners wants to make clear that the King James Version Bible is the source for those of the Gathering of Christ Church. Also, the Apocrypha is a part of the Bible. The original King James 1611 Bible had the Apocrypha in it. 

People have the misconception that because the Bible is used it must be a religion. This is not the case. So then, that does leave a question unanswered.

What is an Israelite?

Israelite is a bloodline. Israelites are from the linage of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel. Being part of a nation or a people is not a religion.

Exodus 1: 1-5

  • Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.
  • Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
  • Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
  • Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
  • And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.

As the scripture shows the children of Israel are actual people. They are a family. They are a bloodline. It has nothing to do with religion.
