The Bible Answers Short Questions From Our Readers
Plain Truth Staff

Your two articles on "Germany in Prophecy" in the December and January issues were fascinating, But could you provide me some authoritative quote that illustrates that the name Deutsch which Germans call themselves really comes from the name Tiw or Tuysco, the old Germanic name of Asshur, the father of the Assyrians? If this fact is true then certainly the Germans are Assyrians by descent.

   There was not sufficient space in the last issue to answer this question in full. But here is the information the reader wishes.
   Early in 1605 an important publication appeared in England entitled Restitution of Decayed Intelligence: in Antiquities. The author, R. Verstegan, had this to say about the origin of the name of the German people:
   "Tuysco, the most ancient and peculiar god of all the Germans... Of this Tuisco, the first and chiefest man of many among the Germans, AND AFTER WHOM THEY DO CALL THEMSELVES Tuytshen, that is, duytshes or duytsh people, I have already spoken."
   Tuysco often spelled for short as Tiw or Tyr were the German names of Asshur, ancestor of the Assyrians. And the only modern nation to bear his name, to call themselves and their land after him, are the German people. By their own admission they are Assyrians!
