Despite facts from archeology and paleontology, yet Hollywood and cinemas continue casting bible characters as whites!
How could Adam and Eve be white; when the first humans lived in Africa? Just think about it.
Now, this article is not about religion, but about history. So, every historical source must be quoted, just as the science of genetics and archeology are being used. The bible and Torah were written over 3,000 years ago, and owing to their age, they've become historical documents whether myth or real. They needs be quoted, because no matter what ancient source you check, the truth is always there. The truth is the truth. The truth never changes.
Both the Torah and Bible said Noah had 3 sons, namely; Ham, Shem, Japheth. Genesis 9: 20-27.
Later, Ham grew up, married and had 4 sons, namely; Cush, Mizraim, Phut, Canaan. Genesis 10: 6. Also referenced in 1 Chronicles 1:8.
See Mizraim https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mizraim
See Cush https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cush_(Bible)
The map below shows ancient names of northern Africa, Europe, and middle east region.
King Taharqo was the 4th Pharaoh in the 25th dynasty of the Egyptian monarchy, and he ruled from Ethiopia/Sudan where Isis and Horus were worshiped long time before the Egyptian civilization. See Egyptian Pharaoh time line https://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/phar/hd_phar.htm
Pharaoh Menes 3,150 BC - 3,100 BC unified the two kingdoms. Other Pharaohs that ruled the two kingdoms includes Pharaoh Shabaka 712 BC - 698 BC and Tarhaqa 690 BC - 664 BC.
Again, ancient Egypt was divided into two kingdoms, known as Upper and Lower Egypt. The pharaohs were known as rulers of the Two Kingdoms; namely, upper and lower Egypt.
While the labeling of "upper" and "lower" might seem counter-intuitive, with Upper Egypt in the south and Lower Egypt in the north, the terminology derives from the flow of the Nile from the highlands of East Africa (upstream) to the Mediterranean Sea (downstream).
Lower Egypt is to the north and is that part where the Nile Delta drains into the Mediterranean Sea. Upper Egypt is to the south- down to the African hinterlands where the flow of the river Nile begins.
There are no shortage of bible or Torah passages showing that the Jews/Israelites were black people. The book of Jeremiah 14:2, reads "Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up". According to English language, the "subject" here is Judah and "they" is a pronoun replacing Judah. So, don't let anybody spin it to fool you.
Judah is as black as the soil!. You have to be black to even qualify as a Jew!!.
The question is not whether ancient Hebrews and biblical characters were blacks, it’s not even up for debate, because there’s overwhelming evidence for that, both in science and the bible itself. The question we should be asking is; why was black history stolen?.
Basically, everything bad was to be associated with black man/satan. While words like; White lie, white magic, white list, e.t.c were associated with goodness/white man. You see, the hatred against the black race is DEEP rooted in their gene and consciousness!.
The easiest way to restore our self esteem is to study history, cause when we do, we will discover everything white people has written down as history is pack of lies deliberately created to put down black people. Black people must understand that the history of a people will determine whether their present would be that of confidence or subdued. For example; if you’re not too bright of your history, it’ll also make you feel subdued in the present.
You see, history is full of blunders against the black race, and education, movies, books, continue to be used as instruments of mental slavery. Black man has been schemed out of his own history!.
Below is map of North west and East Africa plus the Middle East. A close examination of this map is enough proof of journeys by the so called Israelites.
As you can see for yourself above, the three arrows correspond to journeys out of Africa to the Middle East. For example; you can see the story of Moses dividing the red sea was a journey originating from either Sudan or Egypt across the red sea to Saudi Arabia.
It is clear that any journey to Israel or the Middle East would mean a Pharaoh and his army were dealing with Israelites in South East of Egypt or North East of Sudan, forcing them to cross the red sea and re-routing their way from Saudi Arabia. This clearly shows the original Isrealites must have been migrating from southern part of Egypt to begin with- totally corresponding to the science of archaeology, paleontology, and genetics that proves Adam and Eve and their descendants first lived in Southern part of Egypt. The southern part of Egypt is the true origin of the Israelites the bible talked about!. Southern part of Egypt includes but not limited to anywhere from Sudan, Ethiopia, Chad, Central African republic, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Ghana, Cameroon, Gabon, down to South Africa.
I' am not a bible quoter, but I must say here that indeed the bible said when the messiah returns he will go back to Southern Egypt and other locations to recover his people that remains there!. The book of Isaiah 11:11 reads "In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands".
Clearly, the Israelites were Africans migrating out of Africa!. The map clearly show the direction of their journey!!. The map cannot lie!!!.
If not for the innate humble and humane nature of the black race, we could have as well broadcasted ourselves as God as we populate the world. Had we done this, the issue of racism against the Black man wouldn't be here today. White people would've simply believed that we are God. How else would they know we’re not?.
