I don't think that any of the Ephraim articles (2, 3, and 4) linked from this page need the lame message on top. Updates will probably not be necessary on these particular articles. These are simple facts found in the bible, and bible scolarship won't change any of that. Of course, if a reader has any new or more detailed information to give, they are free to add. But they already know that, don't they? Obadiah 01:18, Feb 16, 2004 (UTC)
- I agree, no disclaimer really needed on those. The source link at the bottom should be plenty (well, I might leave it on 4). - Hephæstos|§ 01:20, 16 Feb 2004 (UTC)
- I'll delete them, then. Why 4? Obadiah 01:24, Feb 16, 2004 (UTC)

Could anyone tell me the reason why Jacob blessed Joseph'a 2 children, Ephraim & Manasseh? And why they became part of the 12 tribes of Isreal instead of Joseph? Joseph was the favored child. I was just wondering if anyone has an answer for me..Thank you(anitashamblin)
