The Mystery of Israel's Ten Lost Tribes and the Legend of Jesus in India

Joshua M. Benjamin (Author)
Synopsis Three thousand years ago and more, on the destruction of their temple in Jerusalem, the two Jewish tribes that comprised the kingdom of Judah and the ten that constituted the kingdom of Israel to the north of Jerusalem were dispersed under the pressure of the invaders-the Assyrians and other hostile nations and empires. The dispersion of the two Judean tribes is fairy well recorded in the Bible and by historians of ancient times; but strangely, that of the ten tribes of Israel was either left unrecorded or was entirely lost during or soon after their dispersion. Through three millennia this has remained one of history’s unsolved mysteries.

In this book Joshua Benjamin describes the various attempts made to solve this mystery, and traces possible candidates for consideration as descendants of the lost tribes in regions as far apart as Ethiopia, China and India-in Kashmir in the north, Manipur in the northeast and in the  Konkan in coastal-Maharshtra in the southwest.

An early Legendary seeker for the ‘dispersed of Israel’ was Jesus of Nazareth: ‘Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not; But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matt.10: 5-6); and again, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. (Matt. 15: 24).

The author’s investigation leads him to interesting facts and legends concerning the likelihood that the 17 years of Jesus’ life unaccounted for in the Bible were spent in India; and also advances the possibility of the return of Issa (Jesus) to India after his survival of the crucifixion and of his ultimate death and burial at Rozabal in Kashmir-an extant site traditionally termed the grave and tomb of Yuz Asaf (Jesus) to this day.
