As you read the unfolding history in the Bible, it's helpful to pay attention to how God worked through the 12 tribes of Israel to fulfill his purposes-especially his purpose of bringing from the tribe of Judah, Jesus the Savior, the "Lion of Judah."
In Genesis, the first book of the Bible, we see God working through a family: Jacob and his 12 sons (who represent the 12 Tribes of Israel). Jesus came from the smallest clan from the Tribe of the Judah. In the New Testament, he uses the Apostle Paul (a Benjaminite) to spread the gospel message to the Gentiles. In Revelation, the last book of the Bible, we are reminded of a remnant of 144,000 people sealed by God-12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel. Here's a list of the 12 Tribes along with key people: Zebulun Issachar Judah (Jesus, Caleb, David) Gad Simeon Reuben Benjamin (Jeremiah, Mordecai, Paul) Manasseh (Joshua, Deborah, Samuel) Ephraim Naphtali Asher Dan Reflection/ Discussion Questions for Rose's 12 Tribes of Israel Pamphlet Read Panel 3 on the Tribe of Reuben. Why is the tribe of Reuben associated with the symbol water? Why is having a stable character so important to success? How does the Lord help make us more stable, and how can we grow in this area?
Read Panel 4 on the Tribe of Simeon and re-read Genesis 34:24-31. Simeon attacked the people of the city of Shechem to avenge the assault on his sister Dinah. Have you ever struggled to forgive someone who deliberately hurt you because it feels like you are "letting them off the hook?" Why do you think God requires us to forgive, love, and even bless our enemies? (Consider the advantages of forgiveness and the consequences of un-forgiveness.)
Read Panel 5 on the Tribe of Levi. Moses, Aaron, Miriam, and John the Baptist were all from this tribe. What was this tribe's role in the Jewish community? How is Jesus as our High Priest associated with the responsibilities of this tribe?
Topics to consider: Fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy; Jesus leading us into the promise land; Jesus being our only entrance into God's presence; etc.
Read Panel 6 on the Tribe of Judah. Why is it significant that Jesus came from the Tribe of Judah?
Look at the diagram on Panel 7. Notice how the tribes camped around the Tabernacle, placing the "presence of God" literally in the center of their existence. How can we place (and keep) God in the center of our lives? List 3 practical ways
Read Panel 10 on the Tribe of Issachar. Why is this tribe's symbol a donkey? What does Moses and Jacob's blessing of this tribe reveal about God's view of hard work? If God promises to make "all things work together for good," why do we still have to work hard?
Read Panel 11 on The Tribe of Joseph. What was Joseph's response to his brothers who sold him into slavery? Recall a time in your own life that God transformed what was intended for "evil" into good. Take a moment to thank God in prayer for his faithfulness in that specific situation (and in any current situations). Look at the Map on Panel 13. This map shows how the each tribe received a portion of the promised land. It took the Israelites decades before finally receiving their promised inheritance. What promises are you trusting and waiting for God to fulfill in your own lives? How does seeing God's faithfulness to the 12 Tribes of Israel encourage your own faith?
