In a previous article, The Tattooed American Hebrew Indians with Elongated Skulls in Texas, I wrote about the Bedai Indians and how they may be connected to the ancient Hebrews/Phoenicians. For the purpose of this article, I would like to put forth the beginning of my research into the various tribes around the world, who I have found have the same exact name or a very similar one to the Bedai tribal name, along with them also sharing many physical traits, languages (words), and customs. A scattered tribe, whom I believe may in fact be the remnants of the lost Tribe of Judah.
These tribes seem to spawn from a time of conquest in ancient Egypt and Greece right around the 4th-1st centuries B.C. under the Greco-Egyptian Ptolemaic Pharaohs. The main tribal connections almost all of them share are found in their names, physical traits, customs, manners, and the fact that many of these tribes wherever they had gone, had carved their communities into mountains and cliffs where they lived in man-made caves and catacombs, which are found all over the world.
In my future articles on this subject, I will detail the names, locations and cities carved into the sides of mountains around the globe where they had lived. You can also check out my past articles on the Tribe of Judah that will help you get up to speed on this Apocalyptic research.
The name Beda is spelled many ways such as Ebeida, Beida, Bedai, Baeda, Bidai, Biday, Bieda, Bedies, Bidaises, Beadweyes, Bedawiyet, Beduanda, Bega, Baduy, Bedies, Bedees, Bidias, Bedais, Bedouins, Bedawee, Midays, Veda, Vedas, Vidais, Vidaes, Vidays etc. You will find these names all over the world, of specific tribes and people, and in almost every country and language. In fact, this Beda name appears to be one of the oldest and longest living names from the ancient world that has kept its original form, with just small variations depending on the country of this specific tribe and/or language.
Beda’s can be found under different variations of the name depending on the language in Egypt, Africa, Greece, Italy, India, America, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, France, Britain, Russia, and many other countries. In addition to this global tribal fact, in almost every country where the Beda tribes reside, they are known as noble, fierce, wise, and honest. They also often hold much sway in governmental affairs, and when they don’t, they simply isolate themselves from other people and non-tribal members. Again, this fact can be witnessed on every single continent in which they reside, which makes this more of a science than a theory, just like their tribal names.
The meaning of the name Beda and its variant spellings comes from its original spelling from an ancient Greco-Egyptian compound word that appears to be how it was first spelled, Ebe-Ida. In studying the etymology of this ancient word, I have found the secret meaning, and also the hidden biblical nature of the specific tribe who carries this name that has been lost in time until now. Hence, the Bedas may be one of the lost tribes of Israel who now possibly has been found…
This original spelling of the name Beda is Ebe-Ida (Ebeida, Beida, etc), and appears to identify the specific Israelite Tribe these people had belonged to, since they had left their ancient Holy Island of Crete and their home there at Mount Ida. This mountain, I have already identified in many previous articles was not only the birthplace of Zeus, but also the original homeland of the biblical Judeans and the Tribe of Judah whom the Lord Jesus was born from. The first century Roman-Jewish historian, Josephus verifies this fact when he says the tribe of the Jud or the Judeans (Idumean) of Mount Ida. This is where the mountain mother Rhea (Cybele, Magna Mater) had hid her son Zeus (Jupiter) in a cave, and placed him in care of the priesthood who were known by various names such as the Telchines, Curetes, and Priests of Pan to name a few.
In the etymology of the original tribal name of Ebe-Ida, we find the true meaning of this word. The Greek word Ebe (also spelled Hebe) meaning “young maturity,” or “bloom of youth.” Ebe or Hebe was the princess daughter of Zeus (Jupiter), and his wife Hera. In Homer, she was the goddess of youth and the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses. According to the Iliad (iv. 2), the minister of the gods, who fills their cups with nectar; she assists Hera in putting the horses to her chariot (v. 722); and she bathes and dresses her brother Ares (v. 905). According to the Odyssey (xi. 603; comp. Hes. Theog. 950), she was married to Heracles after his apotheosis.(2)
In the Egyptian language the meaning of Beda is white, and one of the most famous wedding songs in Egypt is il-bint’ beda ‘The Girl is White,’ (beautiful and of fair complexion).
The etymology of the name Ida also brings us back to the island of Crete where we find the mountain of the covenant, Mount Ida. The meaning of Ida is Venus, and it was at Mount Ida where this planet would be worshipped in place of the true God, Zeus or Jupiter. This story is passed down to us in ancient Greek mythology, Ida or Ide, the nymph of Mount Ida and one of the nurses of Zeus who is Jupiter. Ida is also the daughter of Corybas and mother of Minos. In Norse mythology, her name is Idun (Iðunn) and is a goddess associated with apples and youth. The name Ida is found in England as Ada, Ida or Edith which all mean rich-gift, blessing, or happiness. The Hebrew name Adah signifies ornament.
In scriptures, this place is called Edom or Idumea (Greek: Ἰδουμαία, Idoumaía; Latin: Idūmaea). It was a Semite-inhabited historical region of the Southern Levant, located south of Judea. It is here at Edom or Mount Ida during the time of King David, that set the stage for the temple to be built on Mount Zion, “which He [God] loved,” in the tribe of Judah (Psalm 78:67-70). God chose David to be His shepherd and Jerusalem (Mount Zion) for His place to dwell. God also chose David to hold the “scepter,” a symbol of kingship that would always remain in the tribe of Judah (Genesis 49:10; Psalm 89:34-37).
In the Blessing of Jacob he had said, “Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion’s whelp; from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He bows down, he lies down as a lion; and as a lion, who shall rouse him? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to Him shall be the obedience of the people” (Genesis 49:8-10). God choose Judah to be His lawgiver and the tribe from which His Son would later be born (Hebrews 7:14). The tribe of Judah was the leading tribe of the Kingdom of Judah.
There are many more facts that would support how the Tribe of Judah are connected with the tribe of the Beda who are scattered all around the world. My previous and future articles will continue to offer many more supporting facts, and also possible DNA science which can also connect them all together.
Isaiah 11:12; “He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth.”
