Translations:Twelve tribes of Israel/17/en
Jacob had twelve sons, born of his four wives. They were anointed by Sanat Kumara to carry the seed of light for the ultimate fulfillment of the destiny of the lightbearers. His favorite son was the eleventh, Joseph, for whom he made the coat of many colors. This coat is the symbol of the causal body of the children of Israel. He chose Joseph to wear this coat because he saw that Joseph had the greatest manifestation of the Christ consciousness and could carry the flame of the blending of all of the color rays of the causal body. So, Joseph received his birthright from his father, Israel.
