Israelite priests hold first gathering since Temple era
Jews belonging to the Tribe of Levi, and particularly the Kohen clan, came together for a mass gathering in Jerusalem on Sunday. It was the first large-scale gathering of biblically-mandated Israelite priests since the time of the Second Temple.
The gathering included lectures and seminars on the history and future of the Temple, and culminated with all of the participants declaring the priestly blessing over Israel from the Western Wall.
Genetic research over the past several decades has succeeded in isolating a particular DNA signature shared by all members of the Tribe of Levi, making the reinstitution of Israel's priestly caste a relatively simple endeavor once the Temple is rebuilt.

Love it. Well put.
But seems to me that the Nation of Israel only wakes up to their true Messiah
when the counterfeit—the Anti-Christ sets up his image in the Holy of Holies . . . and then the Israeli’s start running and he starts slaughtering them right and left from the Temple Courtyard outward.
Thankfully, God is still their Champion and will show Himself so.
OMG I wouldn’t be fly on that wall see Titus check out Israeli community at that time LOL!
No, the Septuagint (sometimes abbreviated as LXX) was the commissioned translation of the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek which, after the Alexander period was the predominant language of Judea during the last couple of centuries before the birth of Christ. The name is derived from the Greek number for seventy - representing the 70 scholars that performed the translation.
What's Janet Reno up to these days, anyway?
I’d bet they’re in the Vatican archives.
The sooner they demolish the Dome of the Rock that is littering the Temple Mount the better. But that would lead to the end of the world I think.
Most of the rest of the Temple treasures were probably looted and burned by the Germanic tribes that sacked Rome repeatedly.
One thing to keep in mind: if the Vatican actually had any of these treasures, don't you think they would have displayed them sometime before it became politically incorrect to do so? Wouldn't their be Churches dedicated to relics from the Temple? Wouldn't the Pope parade the Menorah around to celebrate his belief that the Church is the "true" Israel? The fact that there's no record of any of this happening suggests that the Vatican ain't got squat.
Also, "the reinstitution of Israel's priestly caste" isn't a " relatively simple endeavor." There's no "reinstitution" because Israel's priestly caste (the Cohanim) never vanished -- they have an unbroken line of tradition supported by recent genetic evidence going back thousands of years, and still have an active role in the day-to-day lives of Orthodox Jews.
Finally, to the chagrin of Orthodox Jews, while the genetic signature appears consistently on Cohanim and Sephardi and Mizrahi Leviim, it is not found on "all members of the Tribe of Levi" as the term is understood today -- Ashkenazi Leviim do not have the gene with any consistency.
Titus is dust. For that matter, so is Haman, Antiochus, Torqueamada, the Czars and Hitler. But we're still here. Maybe some others should learn a lesson from that.
You do know that in the end Ishmael repents and it is Esau that is destroyed?

I saw this great TV special that discovered Jews with this DNA in peoples all over the world, including Chinese and African Jews.

I think you nailed it!
That is absolutely beautiful.
That’s very interesting. Thanks so much for that info.
