The Hebrew lineage and Israelite lineage are (2) distinct groups of the same ppl!!Oh is this you problem Ben?? Lol!!
The word Hebrews is yo problem. Now u are talking!
So let me ask you, when did the Hebrew lineage start?
Meaning there's the "1st Fruit" which make up the Olive Tree or candle lights for the Menora but along side the 2 Olive Trees there's "The Branches" or tribes tht sprout among them (meaning trees or Hebrews..study the ancient tongue or meanings of Hebrew and Hebrews were considered the GateKeepers or those tht fought off invaders try'n to breach and sneak off into Africa.. IMO..my overstanding until someone finds more info to add
