NOVA Video - Lost Tribes of Israel

Here's another video that is thought provoking.

A guy heard of some Black people in East Africa who claimed to be Jews. He wondered if there was any way to verify the claim. The Holy Bible tells us God chose the tribe of Levi to handle the worship in the temple. This guy decided to test their DNA. First he when to the country Israel and tested the rabbis there. 10% of the men had the same DNA. He then went to the Lemba tribe to see if any of the men there would match the DNA. Over 50% of the Lemba men's DNA match those in Israel. :-D
