Explanation of the Symbolism in the B.I.Logo
The use of the British-Israel Logo in all its variants is reserved for identification of Federation affiliated bodies.
As the British-Israel-World Federation emerged from this background, it did not in any way try to change orthodox church doctrines regarding the nature and person of Jesus Christ the Second Person of the Trinity, the Word made Flesh, crucified, risen and ascended, now seated at the right hand of God, the coming King, Lord, Redeemer of Israel and Saviour of all those of mankind who are willing to accept His death as substitutionary for their deserved end, and, for love of Him, have his law written in their hearts and lives. Unlike some modern sects, we in no way diverge from the main-line orthodox position of the Protestant Churches on these matters. Thus, we do not hold our organization to be a "sect" (which means a "section" - with a division of doctrine separating from orthodoxy), or a "cult". We do not seek to "recruit" members at the expense of such churches. Our 'raison d'etre' as a Federation is to sustain the recognition of the identity of modern day Israel as the fulfilment of Biblical prophecies, not to teach a new view of Jesus Christ.
While our teaching is based entirely on the Bible and stands without the need of any other source but God's Word, certain observations are consistent with our contentions, and are frequently adduced as points of confirmation. It appears that even particular distinctions of tribe may be discerned among the Israel peoples mentioned.
Those of Bond Netherland Israel would support the contention that Holland's population (and the Afrikaner of South Africa), for example, display characteristics similar to, and could well be mainly of, the Tribe of Zebulun.
Some ancient Irish stock, (Tuatha De Danaan), the ancient Greeks (whom Romans called "Danoi"), and the present day Danish people, are often claimed to be of Dan. [The Lacedemonian (Spartan) king claimed their descent from Abraham - see I Maccabees 12 or Josephus Book XII, Chapter IV and Book XIII, chapter V:8.]
The Jutes of Kent and North Germany may well be of Judah (those 200,150 taken by Assyria as per Sennacherib Prism in the British Museum).
- The House of Israel generally, under the Birthright tribe of Ephraim, the tribal emblem of which was the wild ox or bull, as worshippers of the golden calf (Heb. "egel" or "engel") were those, we believe, whose descendants came to Britain as "Angles". Some horned helmeted related tribesmen appear among the British chieftains, the Vikings, etc..
