The Law of Averages: …”real theorem that a random variable will reflect its underlying probability over a very large sample.”
This theorem is used in many areas of life, some for good and some not so good. None the less, it is called a LAW of averages; over time certain things will average out. We are looking at the populations of the earth today in comparison to the beginning of mankind after the Great Flood; Noah and his three sons: Japheth, Shem and Ham. They started as equal in numbers and over time, the count of their offspring will still average out to something on par with their beginning ratio.
What’s the point? We tend to incorrectly view the Jewish population today as representative of all of the Tribes of Israel when in fact they were only one of the *thirteen tribes to move into the lands promised to them by God himself; Tribe of Judah [yehudah/jews]. Due to this misunderstanding, well-meaning people tend to equate this with the whole of the Hebrew population.
The Aha Moment? Using the Law of Averages (probability theory, expected value, etc) this means that the number of Jews in Israel, New York and the rest of the world is but a small percentage of the total count [“…as the sands of the seas,” Genesis 32:12]. Since these peoples began as descendants of Shem, one of Noah’s three sons, factoring in the global count of people and the Law of Averages, there is valid reason to believe there are 2 billion Hebrews on earth today. So who are they even if they don’t know who they are? Think about it? 1/3 of the world’s population!
. All Israelites are Hebrew but not all Hebrews are Israelites. Don’t forget the Arabs through Ishmael, the Edomites/Idumaeans through Esau and Ket’urah/Abraham’s six sons; all are Hebrew.
Simply put: All Jews are Israelites; all Israelites are Hebrew; all Arabs are Hebrew; All descendants of Ket’urah are Hebrew. all of these people carry Abraham’s DNA.
