BaNIMIN (Benjamin) is the light bearing tribe. They were loaned to the IEUDIM (Jews) for the sake of King DUID (David) as a lamp to shine light on the character of IEUE in IRUSHaLIM: the city where IEUE has chosen for Himself to put His Name (1 Ki 11:32, 36). BaNI IMINI (Benjamites) took the good news of IEUESHUO E MaSHICH from the IEUDIM in IRUSHaLIM to the Lost Tribes of ISHaRaAL in exile. Galileans were mainly BaNI IMINI so most of the MaSHICH's followers (including SHAUL (Rom 11:1)) were BaNI IMINI. The BaNI IMINI escaped the 70 AD Roman destruction of IRUSHaLIM and moved their way northward to Britain via Galilee, Galatia, Cappadocia, and the Danube. Normans were mainly BaNI IMINI. BaNIMIN was the last tribe to leave the Land of ISHaRaAL and the last to arrive in Britain. It was the only tribe that recognised the MaSHICH before leaving Palestine, and the only one to acknowledge the way of IEUESHUO before arriving in Europe. They have never been cast off. They remained with the House of IEUDE so long as divine favour remained with them, but when that terminated in MaSHICH's day and soon afterwards BaNIMIN was delivered and led under divine guidance across to Europe to the Northern House in their new home. The tribe of BaNIMIN is the only section of the olive of ISHaRaAL that remained standing.
AV 1Ki 11:32 (But he [IRaBOM (Jeroboam)] shall have one tribe for my servant DUID's sake, and for IRUSHaLIM's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of ISHaRaAL:) Ancient Hebrew and brackets added by me
AV 1Ki 11:36 And unto his [DUID's] son [IRaBOM (Jeroboam] will I give one tribe, that DUID my servant may have a light alway before me [to face-of me] in IRUSHaLIM, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there. Ancient Hebrew and brackets added by me
