1 Peter and the Ten Tribes

Paul’s mission, ministry and message was to bring the “good news” of Yeshua to the non-Jews, the gentiles. More specifically, he was reaching out to the scattered and lost sheep of the house of Israel, or the 10 tribes of the Northern Kingdom. Did you know that 1 Peter was written to the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom? The book begins with: Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. 1 Peter 1: 1 Did you know that the word strangers is a reference to the Northern Kingdom who was Lo Ruhamah, “not my people”, (Hosea 1:8), and being “cut off” from the covenant, they acquired the status of being strangers, and became scattered (diaspora or exile).
