Y-dna and Second Temple Jewish Sects


The Jews of Second Temple Times that went into the diaspora belonged to predominately J1 (Shammai Pharisees), J2 (Saducees), E1b (Shekhemite Pharisees), R1b Z2103 (Hillel Pharisees and Essenes), G (Hellenist Jews of North Africa and Syria), T and L (the Herodians and Romans) and Q (Benjaminite) y-dna. There was of course some admixture among the groups but this represents the core population y-dna of the sect or group. The Khazar input to Jews is from R1a (Josephites), G (Nahorites), and Q (Benjaminites) y-dna which entered the Jewish community much later in the 8th century. After the diaspora the Hillel Pharisees gradually gathered most Jews under the umbrella of their movement and its transformed observances due to the destruction of the Temple and the exile from the Land of Israel.
 

The bulk of the J1, J2 and E1b y-dna found among the Jewish people comes from the Samaritan converts to Judaism in Second Temple times and just after. However E1b is more complex as the Samaritan E1b is V22 as is those Jews descended from the Shekhemite Pharisees but many other Jews of E1b descend from the Z827 branch of E1b. It is from the Samaritan-Ishmael Cohenim that many Jewish Cohenim descend as well as the priestly Tribe of the Lemba. J1 P58 among Jews represents mainly the Shammai Pharisees descended from the Samaritan High Priest Hananiah and J2 the Saducee Jews descended from the Samaritan priest Zadok (a Samaritan convert of Antigonos of Sokho) a descendant of the Samaritan High Priest Manasseh (J2) son of Sanballat who usurped the older line of Samaritan High Priesthood (J1). The Shekhemite Pharisee Levites (E1b) were descended from the Samaritan Levite clan.The Talmud speaks of seven groups or sects of Pharisees including the Shammai school, the Hillel school, the mystical Essenes, the Shekhemites.
 

The Pharisees who Jesus identified as the 'leaven'[Chametz] were the Shammaites or Shomerim (the observant ones). The Talmud speaks of seven different types of Pharisees. Five of these groups are described in a negative way and they are known as 'Chametz' by Jesus as there were five kinds of "chametz" to be avoided on Passover. One of these groups are called the Shikmi who follow the actions of their founder known as Shekhem or the Shekhemite Pharisee. The city of Shekhem was the Samaritan religious centre and after John Hycanus destroyed their Temple many of the Samaritans entered Judaism. They are the group Jesus speaks about when he says that they lay heavy burdens on men's shoulders. The use of the word 'shoulders' is an allusion to this group as the word for shoulder in Hebrew is similiar to Shechem. The Samaritans were also known as Shomerim and Shechemites.
 

Another group were called the Nikpi who knocked their legs together and walk with small steps thus showing how 'humble' they were- this group were masters of 'fake humility'. They would also put off doing good deeds by elaborate cautiousness. A third group were the Kizai who would walk around with their eyes closed and smash into walls and draw blood in their efforts to avoid looking at women. A fourth group were the Medukhia or Hankaia Pharisees who are described like a pestle in a mortar. Like a pestle they oppressed, ground and smash down people by their exaggerated observances. Always looking for the faults in others rather than looking skyward to the heavens.
 

A fifth group were those self righteous pharisees who would think they were so good at observing all the Torah that they pompously would inquire about doing more. Two groups were associated with the matzah of Passover- they were the Essene followers of Menachem (the reverent mystics) and the followers of Hillel (the humble peace-loving Pharisees).
 

The J1 Shammai or Shamerim (observant ones) Pharisees were to influence Islam and Mohammed (of J1 P58 FGC12) was descended from the Shammai priests who in turn descended from the Samaritan High Priestly line who in their turn descended from the Ishmaelite priests descended from Kedar the son of Ishmael. The J1 P58 found among Jewish Samaritan cohenim belong to J1 P58 ZS223 which branched off at the time of the Jewish diaspora of 70 AD and are the so-called Cohen Model Haplogroup within J1.

The Judaisers in the early Church belonged to these Shammai Pharisees and the Shekhemite Pharisees. Paul spoke about the Shammai Pharisees in Galatians as the Ishmaelite sons of Hagar. Jesus spoke about the Shekhemite Pharisees by the use of a pun when he spoke of those who place heavy burdens on others shoulders (shekhem). The so-called CMH found among claimants to Jewish Cohen or Kohen status found among J1 and J2 is that of the Samaritan priestly line and not that of the Zadokite line of Jewish priests.
 

The surviving direct line from Aaron belongs to R1b L584. I would venture to say it is only this lineage that could provide a valid High Priest for a rebuilt Temple. They would need to have this dna signature and be recognized by tradition as a Kohen in their Jewish community who has no irregular marriages that invalidates their Kohen status. They descend from the Second Temple High Priests who were of the family of Annas. Annas or Ananius ben Seth descended from the Egyptian branch of the High Priests descended from the pre-Maccabean High Priest Onias IV. This is the true Zadok line of priests as opposed to the false Zadok priests descended from the Samaritan priest Zadok who converted to Judaism and was a founder of the Sadducees.
 

St John (Yochanan) the apostle (ha Shaliach) belonged to the Davidic lineage like his brother St James the Greater. St John the Beloved Disciple and Evangelist who was also called St John the Presbyter (ha Parnas) was a priest of the family of Annas. They have been confused in Christian tradition.
 

St John the Beloved Disciple was most likely a son of the High Priest Theophilus and is mentioned as a member of the High Priestly family in Acts 4 along with his brother or cousin Alexander. Alexander was the famous Talmudic Rabbi who taught: "He who possesses worldly wisdom and fears not the Lord, is as one who designs building a house and completes only the door, for as David wrote in Psalm 111, 'The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord." Matthias the 13th apostle that replaced Judas was a brother of St John the Beloved Disciple and he later served as High Priest of the Temple. 

Thus both St John and St Matthias belonged to R1b L584 y-dna. Hillel, Gamaliel and St Paul were all Benjaminites who were thus Q y-dna and Hillel Pharisees. St Luke was a Hellenist Jew and recent dna tests on his relics confirm him as G y-dna. Lazarus may also have been of G y-dna as tradition believes he was descended from a Syrian noble on his paternal line. G2a was the most likely haplogroup of Phillip of Macedon and his illegitimate son Ptolemy I of Egypt. 

Alexander the Great was E1b as the real son of Olympias by the Pharaoh Rameses VI (also known as Nectanebo II). The G2a Macedonians descend from the Macedon Royal Family. Did E1b1b enter the Samaritans through an illegitimate son of Alexander the Great and a Samaritan woman? As a result of this the Jewish Shekhemite E1b families may also be descendants of Alexander the Great. It would seem that Rameses III or his father was E1b1b (M215) and that the Samaritan son of Alexander the Great was E1b1b1 (M35.1). One of his sons was the ancestor of the later Shekhemite E1b1b1(L539) Samaritans and Jews, while another son was the ancestor of the Elb1b1b (Z827) Jews including the Kizia (Kuzia/ Kazia) Pharisees and the more fanatical Dead Sea Essenes.
