My boss, who is also the owner of the company I work for, is Jewish. He has lately developed the annoying habit of asking people he meets if they are “MOT”. That means he is asking if they are a “member of the tribe”.
My understanding is that the destruction of the temple in the 1st century left “no stone unturned”. Thus, they have no tribe, no priesthood, no nothing. Right?
I am not a history expert, but I know a lot of people here are. I’d be interested in any comments concerning the actual history of “the tribe” and its actual lineage and claim to thereof. In the great scheme of things, it probably doesn’t matter. This is just more of a history question that anything else.
Wouldn’t it be safe to say that we, the Catholic Church, remains as the true tribe?
