What Is the Origin of the Word Israel?
Question: What is the origin of the word Israel?
Answer: Israel is a very ancient term which was used long before Abraham ever came around.
The term really means all of the twelve tribes that originally developed on
the continent of Mu from which all the people of the Lemurian Empire were
essentially drawn. All mankind started on that
continent and has moved from there in many, many migrations over many thousands
of years. (12-1974)
