Clan

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
Term used to distinguish a kin group more extensive than a family. The boundaries of such a group are not always clearly delineated. Each clan was governed by the heads of the families (elders). Several clans formed a tribe, and twelve tribes formed Israel. The clan is sometimes referred to as “division,” “kindred,” “family,” “thousand,” or even “tribe.”
