    Yes, I think that’s the point… the line that went from Abraham through Isaac to Jacob who was later called Israel. That line does not include Ishmael, Abraham’s son to Hagar, nor the six sons of Keturah, including Midian. Nor does it include Esau, Jacob’s twin. It is hard to think of how else to define that specific line other than bene-yisrael.
