Jacob's Twelve Tribes

Jacob's Twelve Tribes

by Tjjohnson

About The Book

This book about the Twelve Tribes of Jacob is the culmination of a four-book Bible Study series that concentrates on the forefathers of the Jewish nation. This Second Edition highlights Jacob and his twelve sons who became known as the twelve tribes of Israel.  God changed Jacob’s name to Israel after a lengthy and mysterious wrestling match, (Genesis 32:24-30 & 35:9-10). Years before, God also changed Jacob’s grandfather’s name from Abram to Abraham, (Genesis 17:1-5).

These Studies are designed for individuals or groups, and are geared toward inspiring thought and encouraging research. I believe when we focus our minds on God and His Word, we reap the benefits of Spiritual enlightenment and a fuller understanding of the Bible. The Bible has been translated from Aramaic and Hebrew to Greek, Latin, English, and various other languages; plus many scriptural interpretations in over a dozen Bible versions. It is my hope that you will gain a deeper understanding of our history, and our future, which the Bible describes in numerous detailed scenarios. Some scriptures are clearer than others, however, choices are made simpler given the background depiction of the words in question. Cross-referencing and comparison of Hebrew and Greek translations also help decipher appropriate choices in most cases.

About The Author

I am a teacher and writer, with over 35 years of combined experience in Information Systems and Bible teaching and writing.  During the later years of my career as a civilian employee with the Navy and after retirement, I worked part-time as a substitute Computer teacher at various high schools.  A week after I retired, I began teaching a Computer class at a local Community College satellite center and discovered that I should have been teaching those 32 years I worked as a Computer Systems Analyst.  But I believe that ‘all things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose’, (Romans 8:28, KJV).  And of course, most of my career prepared me for what I do now, especially teaching.

I began writing when I started journaling ‘the facts of my life’.  Anytime I am writing I lose all sense of time; the same thing happens when I‘m studying the Bible.  This is how I finally discovered my God-given gifts, and my purpose in life.  I struggled for over 40 years trying to figure out why I was born, and what God wanted me to do.  Now I live a joyful life.  I don’t just exist anymore!
How can I be so sure about God’s gifts?  Because I can write, teach, and research all day long and not care whether I’m paid for it or not.  I used to tell my students to prepare for a career that would allow them to earn a living doing what they loved to do.  It would have been great if someone had told me that when I was in school!

For the past 3 years, I have conducted classes from books I’ve written for anyone who wants to learn.  These days, with Covid19 lingering into its ninth month, virtual classes are a real blessing. I am also involved in a Bible class with the San Diego Downtown Section of the world-wide Bible Study Fellowship International Organization.  I pray with a group of young women once a month; this is via social media also. Along with these commitments and my writing, I am one of the Mothers of my church in San Diego, California: Bayview Baptist Church, Senior Pastor is T.W. Brooks, DMin.  I stay busy, and I enjoy it. Prayer gets me through it all.
