Here we report the analysis of 16 whole R1 sequences and show that a set of 19 unique nucleotide substitutions defines the Ashkenazi R1a lineage. While our survey of one of these, M, in 2, R1a samples reveals its absence in Eastern Europeans, we show it is present in all sampled R1a Ashkenazi Levites, as well as in Moreover, the M lineage also occurs at low frequencies in non-Ashkenazi Jewish populations.

In contrast to the previously suggested Eastern European origin for Ashkenazi Levites, the current data are indicative of a geographic source of the Levite founder lineage in the Near East and its likely presence among pre-Diaspora Hebrews. In a later study Behar et al. Having a last name of Levi or a related term does not necessarily mean a person is a Levite, and many well-known Levites do not have such last names. Levitical status is passed down in families from father [32] to child born from a Jewish mother, as part of a family's genealogical tradition.

Tribal status of Levite is determined by patrilineal descent , so a child whose biological father is a Levite in cases of adoption or artificial insemination, status is determined by the genetic father , is also considered a Levite. Jewish status is determined by matrilineal descent, thus conferring levitical status onto children requires both biological parents to be Israelites and the biological father to be a Levite.

Accordingly, there is currently no branch of Judaism that regards levitical status as conferable by matrilineal descent. It is either conferable patrilineally with a Jewish mother, in the traditional manner, or it does not exist and is not conferred at all. Some Levites have adopted a related last name to signify their status. Because of diverse geographical locations, the names have several variations: [33] [34].

Levites also comprise one of the four surviving families of Samaritans, where they serve the role of High Priests due to the fact that the last Samaritan High Priest Cohanic family went extinct in the 17th century.

They only had authority over what the people chose to freely give or sacrifice to the minister of their choice.

This was called Corban. It was the Corban of God that drew us near God and made His word to effect. The Levite priest, just like the early ministers of the Church, had no personal estate. They owned all things in common. They were only naked in one sense. They still had families. They were not like the mendicant monks which evolved into the religious beggars like the ascetic sadhus of India.

The reason for no personal estate was to build in a natural governor to prevent the accumulation of wealth and privilege or even power. The people have many ways to relinquish personal power and therefor rights which God wants you to have to learn the virtues of His ways of righteousness. The highest in the Church, as it was with the Church in the wilderness, were to be servants of servants.

That lack of authority over the people was supposed to carry over in the living network of stone ministers. The idea of the people weaving the breeches of the Levites simply meant they went up in this network by the gifts of the people who by their love supported the ministers. If the ministers continued to supply a covering for each other the power or authority would began to centralize in the hands of Bishops and Archbishops.

The Church would become top down and soon be more concerned about its comfort as men sought the power of that office. There are other dangers such as wealthy lords or kings may choose to support certain ministers giving them more power and control.

With that power and control will come the temptation of Saul to exercise influence and therefore power over others. The warp and weft of the people weaves a cloth of righteousness if they will come together in love and charity. Everyday was election day in this form of government which was truly a government of the people, by the people and for the people under God who led the people in their hearts and in their minds. This was the Kingdom of God centered in the hearts and minds of every man and women as they chose to come together in love for one another according to the perfect law of liberty.

As the ministers and benefactors of a nation of free souls under God they are not like the rulers of other nations. They cannot prove they are ministers of the people and servants of God without the testimony of the people they serve. That testimony of the people gives them covering; clothes their nakedness. They cannot prove their liberty in Christ without this chain of testimony. What was this priest's office? We must understand that the purpose of sacrifice is to bind society together with honor and love, not contracts and the sword.

This is Pure Religion. Also the ministers do not go up by steps like a pyramid with some going higher over the others because they have no authority to do so. They go up by service because the Levites and the ministers of Christ were to serve one over the other. The public offices of the world are offices of power but the public offices of Christ are ones of service. Those who do not want to serve with virtue need to find another line of work. For those who do want to serve they need to work at it, seek it, do it Of course this is no easy lesson to learn and it may take some time, much patience and much love and forgiveness God is the same today and His ways have not changed.

Christ did many of the same things as God had done with the Levites.

How come you don't call me - Sela and the Levites..

Unlike the authoritarian benefactors of the Gentile nations, the Church , as the government of God, was to provide their service only by the charity and Freewill offerings of the people. Love , humility and forgiveness are required to make such systems, operating under the perfect law of liberty , a true blessing for both rich and poor alike.

The Levites were also naked of any exercising authority. They could not go up by steps lest they reveal that nakedness and lack of authority.

The people were told to make underwear, a covering, for them. It is about coverture and the power or authority to act and lead by serving. The Levites had no inheritance, no personal estate, [27] nor any exercising authority. Their success depended upon the good will of the people who freely gave them their covering by tithing to them according to their service.

Charity is marked by Paul as the greatest of gifts and that personal sacrifice not only saves those who fall on hard times but also frees and matures the grantors of charity in the practice of the virtues, sacrifices and ways of Christ. They were not to exercise authority in the management and service to the people seeking the kingdom but they were to be benefactors of the people. The ministers of Christ were to give up their personal estate and like the Levites before them they became the Poor Preachers of His Kingdom.

But the word hath in Luke is also translated hast in Matthew The word substance is the same in Luke [32] and also the word have in Luke [33] and goods in Luke [34].

And Paul has done the same with his goods in 1 Corinthians [35]. The multitude of the ministers at Pentecost gave up their personal estate and owned all things in common as we see in Acts Taking a position like this today might be called a Vow of poverty. The bonds of the Church is brotherhood under Christ in the service of His appointed kingdom.

They cannot rule one over the other but learn to fit together as a functioning body without exercising authority one over the other. To survive and function in the world but not of the world the people must provide the covering for the Ministers of the Church. That is the purpose of the Sacred Purpose Trust. Israel was a nation chosen to serve all people as priests setting an example of a different form of government.

Jesus was such a priest after the order of Melchisedec, but he ruled, not with the rod of iron like Rome , but with love, service and humility. He was the Prince of Peace. The original role of the priest came from the first-born son of the family, who managed the common funds of the family for the benefit of all its members. The priests of a nation were very much the same. Israel was a kingdom, not a religion. It was a system of faith, but all governments are systems of faith or fidelity or allegiance, established for the welfare of the people, accepting, in exchange, a portion of their loyalty or allegiance.

A Godly government is based upon the precepts of a brotherhood of love and charity and not upon demands and force. For almost hundred years, Israel had been a powerful nation with no central government, no compulsory tax, and no police force or standing army, other than an organized brotherhood of free citizens. The dominion and civil power was in the hands of the individual families.
