MAPS, Diagrams and the ramblings of someone trying to make sense of what happened so far back in the distant past where our present churches and monarchies come from now. There was a lot of corruption and most of what we know cannot be trusted without looking between the lines and siting actual evidence.

|English: Menahem was a king of the northern Israelite Kingdom of Israel. He was the son of Gadi, and the founder of the dynasty known as the House of Gadi or House of Menahem. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
The House of Gadi was a dynasty of kings of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. The dynasty is also called the House of Menahem, after its founder. The dynasty lasted for only twelve years and ruled from the then capital of Israel, Samaria. The dynasty is so named because Menahem was the son of Gadi. Some have speculated that Gadi was a scion of the tribe of Gad.
From after the conquest of the land by Joshua until the formation of the first Kingdom of Israel in c. 1050 BC, the Tribe of Gad was a part of a loose confederation of Israelite tribes.
No central government existed, and in times of crisis the people were led by ad hoc leaders known as Judges. (see the Book of Judges) With the growth of the threat from Philistine incursions, the Israelite tribes decided to form a strong centralised monarchy to meet the challenge, and the Tribe of Gad joined the new kingdom with Saul as the first king.
After the death of Saul, all the tribes other than Judah remained loyal to the House of Saul, but after the death of Ish-bosheth, Saul's son and successor to the throne of Israel, the Tribe of Gad joined the other northern Israelite tribes in making David, who was then the king of Judah, king of a re-united Kingdom of Israel.
However, on the accession of Rehoboam, David's grandson, in c. 930 BC the northern tribes split from the House of David to reform a Kingdom of Israel as the Northern Kingdom. Gad was a member of the kingdom until the kingdom was conquered by Assyria in c. 723 BC and the population deported.
From that time then, the Tribe of Gad has been counted as one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.

Following Solomon's death in c. 926 BCE, tensions between the northern part of Israel containing the ten northern tribes, and the southern section dominated by Jerusalem and the southern tribes reached boiling point. (over money)
When Solomon's successor Rehoboam dealt tactlessly with economic complaints of the northern tribes, in about 930 BCE (there are difference of opinion as to the actual year) the united Kingdom of Israel and Judah split into two kingdoms. (this split occurred Four (4) years after Solomon's death)
The northern Kingdom of Israel, which included the cities of Shechem and Samaria, and the southern Kingdom of Judah, which contained Jerusalem; with most of the non-Israelite provinces achieving independence.
The Kingdom of Israel (or Northern Kingdom, or Samaria) existed as an independent state until 722 BCE when it was conquered by the Assyrian Empire, while the Kingdom of Judah (or Southern Kingdom) existed as an independent state until 586 BCE when it was conquered by the Babylonian Empire.

Egypt reached the pinnacle of its power during the New Kingdom, in the Ramesside period.
The Egyptian Empire rivalled the Hittite Empire, Assyrian Empire and Mitanni Empire, after which it entered a period of slow decline.The tribes who were captured by the assyrians were brought to Egypt as slaves and they wished to have the Torah and during the Ptolemic period the scriptures were transcribed into Greek because that was the language of the time in Egypt.
Egypt was invaded or conquered by a succession of foreign powers, such as the Canaanites/Hyksos
Macedonians in the Third Intermediate Period and the Late Period of Egypt.
In the aftermath of Alexander the Great's death, one of his generals, Ptolemy Soter, established himself as the new ruler of Egypt.
This Greek Ptolemaic Dynasty ruled Egypt until 30 BC, when, under Cleopatra, it fell to the Roman Empire and became a Roman province.
Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion, who was worshipped from at least the late Predynastic period through to Greco-Roman times

Read the full article to understand why this is here. Its so interesting to read through it.
The Kingdom of Israel disperses into ten-tribes and keeps the name Israel.

Then the empires arise.
Assyria conquers the ten-tribes and it is said here that these people are never heard from again
(so were most likely assimilated into the Assyrian population).
Babylon conquers Judah (carries off) = King Nebuchadnezzar
(and Simeon anonymously within its borders)
Stories of Daniel and Esther come after this
Nebuchadnezzar (Emperor of Babylon) [most powerful man at that time] conversion to the God of Daniel
Babylon proclaims the worship of the Living God.
Esther marries (Persian) Emperor Xerxes
Xerxes reigned a region that stretched from India to Ethiopia
An intended holocaust by Haman is averted.
The people of Judah were said to have gotten their pride back.
(PRIDE = LION of Judah) [Lions]
Zerubbabel leads a group of Jews back to Canaan.
Ezra and Nehemiah follow.
The walls of Jerusalem and the Temple of Jerusalem are both rebuilt. (not without great issue)
Ezra has a dramatic ahha moment about the 'text' and supposedly recognizes the importance of educating his people who now spoke Aramaic not Hebrew and didn't understand the Torah
Ezra instituted the 'explainers' whose sole function was to explain the Torah to these Aramaic speaking people.
The living Spirit of the Torah was neglected
and instead a rigid system of deterministic rulery was favored.
The rabbinic period followed.
Explainer's arose who explained the explainers commentary upon commentary was written.
All of this above is available to read in great depth here below. I was mainly concerned with the story of the splitting of the territory and when and what happened to the original Torah. The story is so involved indeed. The link below takes this to a further level where the writer takes your mind to a place you may have not seen links to and that is quantum physics and the correlation to
The Living Torah has all been lost for sake of the original scrolls and parchments that are available, and now there are a far greater number of people who would like to see the truth of this be revealed in the 21st Century .... 2015 seems like as good a year as any to see this come about.
Why did Esau do this?
The Romans made it possible for individuals from subject-peoples to acquire Roman citizenship, and would sometimes confer citizenship on whole communities; thus, "Roman" became less and less an ethnic and more and more a political designation.
EsauEsau is a full brother of Jacob. Esau marries daughters of Heth and also his cousin Mahalat, the daughter of uncle Ishmael, and has many sons.
His offspring are the Edomites. Herod the token-king [tetrarch] of Judah who was a descendant of Esau sent Jesus to Pilate to be tried. Pilate was Roman
By 211 AD, with Caracalla's edict known as the Constitutio Antoniniana, all free inhabitants of the Empire became citizens.
CITIZENS.... that part is interesting because there we could look at the archetype for today's modern Birth Certificate and rights of Citizenship that are beholden to the British Empire [for Australia].
After the city of Rome fell,( Byzantine Empire) the people that remained of the empire continued to call themselves Romans, even though Greek became the main language of the Empire.
Rhomaioi continued as their name for themselves (Hellenes referring to pagan Greeks) through the Ottoman and even into modern times.
