Can anyone explain why the tribe of Dan is not listed as part of the 144,000?


Revelation 7:5 thru 8 list all the tribes of Isreal except the tribe of Dan. However in place of the tribe of Dan is the tribe of Manasses. Who is the tribe of Manasses and where did they come from?

    The above reference to Rev 7-8 should be Rev 7:1-8.

    This would explain alot. The tribe of Dan did get themselves involved in idolatry almost from the every start. Many thanks Greg.

    Can one really state for sure if it's one or the other. It is at best a guess as to wether it is fleshly Isreal or Spiritual Isreal. No one really knows at this point. I believe only time will tell. Many thanks irenemaria

    In the book of Ezekiel God said He would bring all the tribes back to the land of Isreal. I would assume this included the tribe of Dan. With that said it's a puzzle as to why Dan is left out of the 144,000. I will view the link you mentioned. Thanks
