What’s the big deal about the Two Houses of Israel?
It used to be that the world was divided into two categories of people: Jews and Gentiles. “Israel” meant the Jewish people; everyone else was something other than Israelite. Then paradigms started shifting, and now there’s a new understanding taking shape about who, along with the Jewish people, can be considered Hebrew and part of Israel.
Ten Parts in the King offers an explanation for the Torah Awakening among Christians, linking it to the prophecies of Israel’s restoration. Every part of Scripture, from Moses to the Prophets to the Apostles, points to the restoration of both parts of Israel: the Jewish House of Judah, and the non-Jewish House of Israel, also known as Joseph and Ephraim. The Jewish people have been the visible portion of the nation for millennia, but now in the latter days the House of Joseph/Ephraim is becoming visible as Christians embrace the Hebrew roots of their faith. For millennia, these Two Witnesses have provided testimony of God’s sovereignty, faithfulness, and desire to fulfill His covenant promises of redemption. Without both witnesses, the testimony of the Creator and the fulfillment of His redemptive plans remains incomplete.
