Re: another theory i found (requested)
The weakness of the premise above is we only have very few facts regarding the twelve Guardians. So far we’ve only got that they are consists of twelve persons, and the two of them are Chiriku and Asuma. There are none that explain about their duty, significance or tribal representative. In fact, we have never introduced about tribal existence in the Leaf.
Chiriku, one of the twelve Guardian Ninja. He spent his life inside a monastery devoted his life for his God.
Scanslation used: Jinchuuriki team.
However, I will add one more intriguing fact regarding the two subjects. There is a tribe of Hebrew that said to be devoted in the service to the Lord God. The tribe’s name is the Levi. You can clarify this on the Bible in Exodus 32: 25-29, and Exodus 12. This tribe (the Levites) was also the tribe of which Moses belonged to. Apparently, we’ve been shown that Chiriku, one of the Twelve Guardian ninja, had spent his life inside the Fire Temple as a monk. Chiriku has been proven as the man who devoted his life to the service of his God.
Who Is the King?
Let say, you’ve come to my place. I really appreciate that. Now, it’s time for me to do some tricks. It’s the tricky part, the part I enjoy the most.
During some chapters backward Asuma had brought us a perception about the King in Konoha. Theories had arisen during those days waiting for Kishimoto to finally reveal it. Different thought and perspective resulted in different opinions from theorists. Eventually, Kishimoto revealed the King as unborn children of Konoha. However, there were some theorists who actually believe that the King is most likely Naruto.
During sometime after they conquered the land of Canaan, the Hebrews started to refine their government system. The Hebrew was a society which comprises of tribes. They also sometimes suffered from surroundings territories military act. As the population grew the Hebrew decided to unify and formed a kingdom. This kingdom led by a king. The King has roles for the country’s (Eretz Israel) sovereign ruler of the land, spiritual leader and the supreme commander of military forces for the homeland security.
Ladies and gentlemen I present you the most iconic King of Israel …David

Since I’m a generous person you’re not only get one picture but you’ll get two! ^___^ ..here goes
The right picture is “David,” a marble sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, 1623–24. In the Borghese Gallery, Rome. The left picture is Naruto taken from Kishimoto Masashi’s Naruto Chapter 165 page 01.
Rasenshuriken is Naruto-self created jutsu based on rasengan combined with wind element chakra. The current rasenshuriken is only at 50% of its fullest development. Regardless of its devastating power when it aimed at certain object, the 50% rasenshuriken still has disadvantage at causing damage also to the attacker.
As the name suggests, Rasen-shuriken might eventually reach its 100% as a discharging or hurling energy technique. Thus, eliminates the negative effect to the attacker. Such mechanism may virtually shares similarity with how to use sling as a weapon.
Sling, device often used in the past as a weapon to discharge a stone or other heavy object with great force at a target. It usually consisted of two cords attached to a piece of leather on which the missile was placed. The attacker whirled the weapon above the head, imparting centrifugal force to it, before discharging the missile at the target. The biblical giant Goliath was slain by a stone hurled from a sling by the young David. This weapon was used effectively in battle by the Greeks and Romans and continued in use until the Middle Ages, when the use of catapult and ballista became widespread against fortifications.

During my research for the theory I’ve found several intriguing occurance. The first is about Dattebayo, one of the famous anime fan sub service. The second is from historical investigation about the Ten Lost Tribes of Hebrew.
--Dattebayo’s with their Hebrew Concern--
Dattebayo is one of the well known groups that provide Naruto anime on the internet for free. Usually Dattebayo includes a message within their releases. The message usually appears soon after the opening ended. It becomes a known fact also that they sometimes write comment or message regarding racial issues. And among those racial comments, the Hebrew gained more attention than others. Such comments that once appeared in their releases are:
“Typical Jews crap”;
“It’s better to be Hebrew than (Insert any race here)”;
“We must stop the translated release for Naruto in other languages but the Hebrew translation remains published” (or something like that)
--The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel--
Another interesting finding is information regarding the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The people of Israel or Jewish people that we know today’s actually descendants from only two tribes of the total twelve tribes of Israel. They are generation from the tribes Judah and Benjamin. The other ten tribes apparently remains lost in history.
Historically, the ancient people of Hebrew had established two kingdoms. In 930 BC the 10 tribes formed the independent Kingdom of Israel in the north and the 2 other tribes, Judah and Benjamin, set up the Kingdom of Judah in the south. Following the conquest of the northern kingdom by the Assyrians in 721 BC, the 10 tribes were gradually assimilated by other peoples and thus disappeared from history.
Nevertheless, a belief persisted that one day the Ten Lost Tribes would be found. Historical experts have been doing hard work to find them. One generation that being suggested as descendants from one of those ten lost tribes is the Japanese.
Peoples who at various times were said to be descendants of the lost tribes include the Nestorians, the Mormons, the Afghans, the Falashas of Ethiopia, the American Indians, and the Japanese. Among the numerous immigrants to the State of Israel since its establishment in 1948 were a few who likewise claimed to be remnants of the Ten Lost Tribes. The descendants of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin have survived as Jews because they were allowed to return to their homeland after the Babylonian Exile of 586 BC.

Wikipedia’s provided information on the Lost Tribes of Israel:
The ultimate fate of these people is unknown and has been the subject of intense speculation by historians and biblical scholars. Such speculation has led to theories that the tribes immigrated to prehistoric North and South America; that they became the Nestorian Christians in Asia; or that they became the ancestors of various Hindu castes. Various other theories have located the lost tribes in Ethiopia, Afghanistan, China, and Japan.

Joseph Eidelberg's "The Biblical Hebrew Origin of the Japanese People" makes a similar case:
Later in his life, Joseph Eidelberg began analyzing ancient traditions, religious ceremonies, historical names, haiku poems, Kana writings and Japanese folk songs, discovering thousands of words with similar pronunciations, sounds and translations between Hebrew and Japanese. These discoveries are history in the making, giving credible new information on the meanings of many unknown Japanese words, numbers, songs and cultural traditions – and this book is the first time that these remarkable similarities are combined into a single consistent theory

Isn’t that amazing to imagine that Kishimoto might has the same ancestor with David, the King of Ancient Israel ^__^
Words have been written, pictures have been presented, and evidences have been brought to surface. Nevertheless, the original truth remains lies within Kishimoto’s mind. The only widely accepted fact about Naruto is one of great Manga from Shonen Weekly Jump Series.
I write the theory is for sharing some thought. It’s your privilege whether to deny and find the original truth or maybe define your own truth. In the worst condition this theory could be a good example of how a goofy theorist interpreting facts to support his own conclusion that Kishimoto is subtly using Liturgical God of Hebrew for the Will of fire and Konoha for Canaan, the Promised Land.
