January 17 – The Thirteenth Tribe | THE RIVER WALK

 

These are the names of the twelve sons of Jacob: Genesis 35:21

Read: Genesis 35:1-36:43, Matthew 12:1-21, Psalm 15:1-5, Proverbs 3:21-26

Relate: If I were to ask a question, “How many tribes of Israel were there?” I am willing to bet nearly everybody (except those reading the title and expecting a trick) would have answered 12. This answer is to be expected because pretty much everywhere they are mentioned in the Bible, they are listed as twelve. There are twelve sons of Jacob (renamed Israel) but there are actually thirteen tribes in the nation Israel. How so?
