    And why didn't you produce just ONE example of Holy Scripture where a member of the Tribe of Benjamin who lived in Judaea was ever referred to as a "jew"?

    *Esther 2:5

        "Now there was a Jew in Susa, the capital whose name was Mordecah, the son of Jair, son of Shimei, son of Kish, a Benjaminite,...."

      Because you cannot?

    *But John, I just did.

No, Zayton, what you DID do was produce the Holy Scripture which refers to a JEW.

Mordecai wasn't an Israelite--because he was a JEW.

ONE of Mordecai's four great-grand fathers was an Israelite, of the Tribe of Benjamin.  But because the Holy Bible referred to Mordecai a JEW and not as an Israelite, at least ONE of his other great-grandfathers, if not all of the rest, had to have been JEWS.

It's well documented throughout the Holy Bible that none of the children of an Israelite who ever married a JEW was considered to be an Israelite:


A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD, Deuteronomy 23:2

Perhaps you could argue that the descendants of such an Israelite could re-enter "the congregation of the LORD" after ten generations, but not even that would prove that they would be considered to be Israelites at that point.
