Your conjecture of the origin of the word “Jew” puts your claim of who we are into question. For the word is an 18th century REDACTION.

It is not in the English language version of the Rheims (Douai) New Testament–first printed in 1582. Nor the King James Authorized translation of the New Testament into English (begun in 1604) and first published in 1611.

“Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a “Jew” or to call a contemporary Jew an “Israelite” or a “Hebrew.”
The Jewish Almanac (1980).

Ask the Lemba, Igbo, and others taken by ship into slavery. They can tell you by genetic proof.

I’m going to give the answer to this question and most people who think they are Jews are not going to like it. If one is really a descendant of Israel, they are made to understand this when they learn Torah. We learn Torah differently and see things in it that outsiders do not see.
If you haven’t been informed while learning Torah that you are learning about your Family and about YourSelf, you may presume that you are not.
Another sign of who is really YisraEl is an aversion to Talmud.

Great recap on the history of the 10 lost tribes.
Your program really helped to explain the timeline and
the separation of Israel and the Jews.
Will keep watching and listening!

One might think the discovery of a palace built in the seventh century BCE for the Biblical Assyrian King Sennacherib would draw more global attention and even excitement about the history of nations that were extant three millennia ago.
But alas, even the archaeological evidence of the distinction between Israel and Judah – then and now – fails to arouse much interest in this preoccupied and perilous planet. It is amazing how such profound insight can be so easily ignored.
The good news, Mr. Nagtegaal, is that God continues to bring to light abundant rock-solid confirmation of the Bible, and, He has placed an articulate and very capable spokesman in Jerusalem to report on these wonderfully revealing findings.

Excellent program again! You make it easy to follow and understand. Watch Jerusalem is intensely interesting and informative and it does indeed make history and prophesy come alive. We certainly appreciate the time and effort you put into this program for us. Thank you!
