In fact, these are the 12 sons of Jacob. Joseph was never a tribe, his sons, Ephraim and Mannasseh, were tribes. Levi wasn't a tribe either, but rather the priestly caste.

I concur. Maybe the easiest fix is to change this to the 12 Sons of Israel and then create the other quiz as well.

Yes. I was wondering where Ephraim and Manasseh were.

I guess but Ephraim and Manasseh are both still the Tribe of Joseph and Tribe could mean different things like the Tribe of bees. Plus, Jacob is Israel as God changed his name to that as he fought with God.

I agree as well, this quiz is innacurate

Missed the three least guessed which were also the three hardest to spell - maybe a correlation? Although in my case it was just poor memory. I kept trying to include versions of Joseph's sons, thinking they were names of his brothers. Time to reread Genesis.

It's still true, but the creator isn't listening.

Technically, they go by different names, and the creator should correct that, but they should still be registered under the same name.

Just remember your Joseph and the Amazing Techni-colored Dreamcoat, and you're all set.

Dan seems rather informal. How about the Tribe of Steve?

Got 90% while reading Genesis 49. I went for the Bible toward the end of the quiz, and that's why I apparently missed one.

This is quite wrong. These are the twelve sons of Jacob, not the twelve tribes.

Thank you Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice for writing a song that helped me get all these in no time flat!

This year marks the 10th anniversary of this quiz inaccurately claiming to be the names of the 12 tribes of Israel instead of the 12 sons of Jacob!

This title of this quiz is incorrect, it should be the 12 sons of Jacob. Not all of Jacob’s sons had tribes named after them.

What you should really do is have Ephraim and Manasseh as answers and have another cell reading 'Joseph' connecting the two
