The 12 Tribes of Israel
Scripture and Video
The 12 tribes of Israel can be identified through the pages of the Bible and other Hebrew and historical texts. The prophecy that would befall each son of Jacob’s family in the last days is recorded in Genesis 49:1-33. It is important to know who the tribes are in order to understand Bible prophecy and what events point to the coming of the last days and the kingdom of God.
Scripture – Genesis 49:1-4
- 1 And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.
- 2 Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father.
- 3 Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
- 4 Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
