The mystery of the lost tribes of Israel reverberates through three millennia of human experience. Of the twelve tribes mentioned in the Bible, only those of Judah and Benjamin survived the Assyrian capture of Israel.
The fate of the other ten tribes has puzzled and provoked scholars and theologians ever since. Throughout the centuries, extraordinary theories have sprung up:
- Medieval Europeans believed that Mongolian invaders were the ten tribes come back for blood.
- Mormon theology holds that the Native Americans are descendants of the lost tribes.
QUEST FOR THE LOST TRIBES documents Emmy®-award winning filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici's ambitious quest to solve the mystery of the lost tribes. Investigating nearly every story, no matter how seemingly far-fetched, the journey leads to Afghanistan, China, India, Tunisia and the Middle East. What is found may well help shed some light on this enduring enigma.
Join us for the chronicle of an adventure that leads to some of the world's most exotic and extraordinary places, exploring the heart and soul of a mystery that echoes throughout human history.
