About Tamar Tephi QUEEN

Tamar Tephi. She is said to have been a daughter of Zedekiah, King of Judah, but she is fictitious. Her descent from the kings of Judah is a 19th century fraud.

According to the colorful story, she and her sister Teia avoided the fate of their brothers, who were killed by the King of Babylon at Riblah. The prophet Jeremiah spirited them off to Ireland via Egypt and Spain, along with the Stone of the Covenant, which became known as Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny). We are left wondering why Jeremiah was not equally helpful to the rest of the royal family.

Tea-Tephi married Eochaidh, the high king of Ireland, who had come from Ireland to Jerusalim. They gave their pledges of marriage over the Lia Fail Stone (Jacob's Pillar - The Stone of Destiny) which they brought back to Ireland with them from Jerusalem.



Most people believe that the royal line of King David ended at the point where King Zedekiah 'and all his sons' was killed by the Babylonians in 585 B.C. It would seem that the line of David would have been stopped at that point. And, reading @ Samuel 7:12-16, with God promising to establish David's lineage on that throne FOREVER, it would seem an oxymoron.

However, as Herbert W. Armstrong proved in his book 'The United States and Britain in Prophecy', that throne Did Not cease. God kept His promise by keeping a royal descendant of David - not a son of Zedekiah, but a daughter - alive. He preserved her with the help of the Prophet Jeremiah, whom God allowed to escape Babylonian captivity.

The ancient history of Ireland, though extensive and often colored with myth and legend, is proved to show facts of biblical history if the Irish annals are to be studied. Mr. Armstrong wrote: "In 569 B.C. (date of Jeremiah's transplanting), an elderly, white-haired patriarch, sometimes referred to as a 'saint,' came to Ireland. With him was a princess daughter of an eastern king and a companion called 'Simon Brach', spelled in different histories in different ways.' (This is Jeremiah's scribe, Baruch.)

The princess had a Hebrew name Tephi - a pet name for her full name which was Tea-Tephi. This royal party also included the son of the King of Ireland, who had been in Jerusalem at the time of the siege. There he had become acquainted with Tea-Tephi, and they had married shortly after 585 - when the city fell. When they came to Ireland, they brought their young son, now about 12 years of age.
