Jacob's Dozen is a study of the biblical history and prophecies associated with each of the tribes of Israel. It is based on Jacob's deathbed prophecies concerning each of his twelve sons found in Genesis 49. The remarkable manner in which each prophecy was fulfilled in that tribe's history is clearly explained. Other fascinating subjects, such as the lost tribes of Israel and the role of the tribes in the end times, are explored. You will be amazed and blessed by this scholarly, yet readable prophetic look at the tribes of Israel.
Jacob Bates, who started making medical mixtures for dogs in a Vermont village and wound up as purveyor of expensive cosmetics to the socially elite, and the possessor of a glittering chateau on Long Island, is a completely likeable person. His native honesty, wit, and common sense save him from becoming the complete bounder that his rather chuckle-headed children and the hired social mentor would make him if they could; and at the end, though the upward progress of the Bates has it moments of tragedy, he emerges very much the same simple-minded, warm-hearted person that he was when the ascent began.--Provided by publisher.
