The black presence in the bible


These images are for visualization purposes. As you look at the following maps and pictures, consider the obvious relationship between the 'Middle East' and Africa. Then reflect upon the impact that the Suez Canal, that tiny little artificial strip of water, has upon your perception of Africa and her boundaries. Imagine if you were making a map,and there was no Suez Canal...how would you draw Africa? Think about it.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6e/SuezCanal-EO.JPG


http://i-cias.com/e.o/ill/suez_canal02.jpg

Prior to the opening of the Suez Canal(in 1869), which is essentially a man-made lake or body of water that extends from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean, the region of the world now known as the 'Middle East' was actually considered a part of Africa. It was simply the Northeastern most corner of the continent of Africa. There were no geographic, geological, cultural, racial or otherwise empiracal barriers that seperated the two lands. African empires, trade routes, civilization and environmental terrain were not foreign or unfamiliar by any means to the inhabitants of the so-called Middle East, because they were one and the same.

The original inhabitants of the land were Africans, the philosophy and opinions and innovations that were developed in this land are all African, they came from African minds in an African environment. Linguistically, genetically, culturally, African. There have been many invasions by lighter-skinned foreigners into the land, who have set up civilizations and formulated a doctrine concerning their place in that land, however, it still remains at the very root an African land. The usage of the deceptive Euro-centric term 'Middle East' to define this Northeast African landscape is simply another manner in which we were robbed and cut off from our history.


In fact, when we look back historically we see that this term 'Middle East' is actually a relatively new one . It first began to gain popularity in the mid 1950s, with the release of the Eisenhower Doctrine and its report on the Suez Crisis. The exact boundaries have been a give-and-take topic amongst mapmakers and politicians for decades, and controversy still remaining as to the fine details concerning this land.

The far-reaching results of this deceptive ploy have been extremely successful. A primary advantage that the altered perception of this land has given the European is that it removes a huge amount of positive connotations concerning this concept of 'blackness' and 'africa'. Some of the worlds most profound, historically powerful and spiritual significant people places and ideology arose from out of this land. Seeing as to how it has been the Europeans objective to place himself at the center of nearly all great accomplishments throughout history, it became a necessity that he found a way to literally cut Israel off from Africa. They cut Mecca off from Africa they cut the Sinai Peninsula off from Africa. Mesopatamia is considered the 'cradle of civilization', but because of this newly designed construct called 'the Middle East' or 'Near East' or 'Asia Minor' most of the planet has been led to diassociate it with any African presence. They were 'Middle Eastern people'

The Bible, one of the most widespread, popular, well-known and well respected books throughout the world in fact chronicles the history of a primariliy African people in an African environment. Remember, the Hebrews literally WALKED in and out of Egypt and into 'the Promised Land', King Solomon of Israel and Queen Sheba of Ethiopia were married and had a son together, after Solomon's death the Throne of Israel was moved into Ethiopia (which, for right now at least, is still defined as being African).

But through deceptive terminology and clever policy decisions, the adversary has very craftily caused a great majority of our people to turn their attention away from that part of the world, which has left the invading Arabs and 'colonizing' Europeans to claim it for themselves.

So the deception concerning Northeast Africa is simply that the boundaries that have been defined by the Europeans only seek to benefit the Europeans as they rob us of our culture and history. A significant number of Africans and African-americans today associate or identify themselves with Egypt(Kemet),, largely due to the great amounts of positive connotations it brings with it towards Africa as a whole. But when they are presented with information concerning Jerusalem or Israel or Palestine, etc, they are dismissive and careless because its just some old 'middle eastern' land. Our African ancestor's history in that land is an OUTSTANDING history, unmatched by any other people in history, and we cant even connect the dots between ourselves and our them.

And there are those who, when I mention the Bible, feel the need to say to me that 'the Bible is the whiteman's book'. And because they have been so successfully stripped of their understanding, they fail to realize that it only became the whitemans book once the whiteman took it into Europe and began to define it as the whitemans book. But before that it was an African book. The Hebrew language is an African tongue. Hebraic thought, culture and vision are another form of African spirituality. Biblical people places and things are in fact African (black) and are not only a huge, missing part of our history but play a major role in sculpting our destiny.


And as certain historical realities concerning the truth about the people of the bible began to resurface, they once again countered it by simply saying 'God doesn't have any color' or 'or Jesus doesn't have any color', and what's worse is that they turn around and accuse the one bringing the facts of being a 'racist'. So i always relate that to a ninja movie, where the bad guy drops a smoke bomb and disappears amongst the confusion. Once they throw that 'r'-word out there the truth becomes a foggy haze and the devil escapes again.

So this deception is deep. A very clever, very well thought out and perfectly executed plan to keep Africa and more specifically the African-Americans cut off from their history and the spiritual role that they will play in world events.

Psalms 83 (The Great International Religious Conspiracy)
1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. 5For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

Luke 21:24 (The Removal of the African Presence in the Holy Lands)
24And they(The Hebrew Israelites) shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the Times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Arriving in 638 A.D., Arabs are johnny-come-lately interlopers on the African continent


I am hoping to continue with this theme, however, it will/would be such an ambitious undertaking, I fear I may not. At any rate, keep this in mind as you read this thread:

Africa was black for hundreds of thousands of years before Arabs arrived in the 7th century A.D. Egypt had been a wholly black nation and world power for over 5,000 years before the first Arab set foot on African soil.

The Middle East is a term coined in 1901. Until that century, nobody talked about the Middle East because neither the term nor the states in the region existed.

My point is that Arabs arrived in Africa in 638 A.D. (after the death of Christ, NOT before his advent, ergo they've been on the continent for less than 1400 years!), thus their contribution to African, including Egyptian, history was miniscule at best, the occasional 'hit that!' in Egypt which, I might add, was on the decline as a nation having been conquered by Rome. The last ruling dynasty was the 31st under Ptolemy of Rome. No Arab ever ruled a dynasty.

Moving along.... Establishing Canaan as a nation of black men and women, and ruler of northeastern Africa in biblical times:


The Palestine region or parts of it have been controlled by numerous different peoples, including the Paleo-Canaanites....

During the Bronze Age, independent Canaanite city-states were established, and were influenced by the surrounding civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, Minoan Crete, and Syria. During 15501400 BCE, the Canaanite cities became vassals to the Egyptian New Kingdom who held power until the 1178 BCE Battle of Djahy (Canaan) during the wider Bronze Age collapse.
Source: Wikipedia


Arab source:

Jerusalem was not founded by Jews, i.e. adherents of the Jewish religion. It was founded between 3000 BCE and 2600 BCE by the the Canaanites, the common ancestors of Palestinians, Lebanese, many Syrians and Jordanians, and many Jews. But when it was founded Jews did not exist.

Top Ten Reasons East Jerusalem does not belong to Jewish-Israelis


Jewish source:

It must be noted that in 636 A.D., when the Arabs marauders came to the land and uprooted even more of its Jews, they did not form any Arab nation there... and certainly not a "Palestinian" nation. They were simply "Arabs" who, as did others before them, moved into a geo-political area called "Palestine!"

Who Are The Palestinians? What And Where Is Palestine?



The Arab source agrees with wikipedia in that Palestine of biblical times was founded by Canaanites. The Jewish source agrees that Arabs didn't come to Africa (Palestine) until 636 A.D. (After the death of Jesus). In short, Arabs have been in Palestine/Africa for less than 1400 years, while Egypt/Africa has been in existence for over 5,000 years.


Palestine was founded by Canaanites. So who were the Canaanites?


Canaan, according to the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Bible, was a son of Ham and grandson of Noah, and was the father of the Canaanites. He was the recipient of the so-called Curse of Ham

(According to Genesis 9:20-27, Noah became drunk then cursed his grandson Canaan, for the transgression of Canaan's father, Ham. This is the Curse of Canaan, to which the misnomer[4] "Curse of Ham" has been attached )


Locations of Canaan's descendants

According to the Table of Nations in Genesis 10 (verses 15-19), Canaan was the ancestor of the tribes who originally occupied the ancient Land of Canaan: all the territory from Sidon or Hamath in the north to Gaza in the southwest and Lasha in the southeast. This territory is roughly the areas of modern day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, western Jordan, and western Syria.


The Persian historian Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari (c. 915) recounted a tradition that the wife of Canaan was named Arsal, a daughter of Batawil son of Tiras, and that she bore him the "Blacks, Nubians, Fezzan, Zanj, Zaghawah, and all the peoples of the Sudan.

source: Canaan (son of Ham) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


We are all aware, of course, that Nubians are black as well as the Sudanese who ruled Egypt for 100 years during the 25th dynasty. Hopefully, we are aware, if by nothing but the timeline of Arab invasion of Africa in the 7th century AD, that there was NEVER an Arab pharaoh on the throne of Egypt. The countries that make up the non-existent continent of the Middle East today were considered a part of Africa in biblical times and were ruled by the descendants of HAM through his son Canaan, i.e., black ruled: "This territory is roughly the areas of modern day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, western Jordan, and western Syria."

The Garden of Eden


Don't even know why it's necessary to say that the Garden of Eden is BLACK HISTORY.... unless there is some...whateva!.... who actually believes it was located in the frozen north of Europe. :uglyazzwoman:

Anyhoo, according to the bible (Genesis):


10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;

12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.

14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.


The Blue Nile and White Nile run north to south

Pison = The Blue Nile
Gihon = The White Nile


Hiddekel is The Tigris River and the Euphrates retains its name until today.

Biblical scholars want to debate the location of the Garden, however, we KNOW it's in AFRICA since even Genesis says that it encompasses the whole of ETHIOPIA. Same Ethiopia today as in biblical times. Ethiopia, not France, or England, or Scandinavia.... Ethiopia, Africa. All of Ethiopia was enclosed within the Garden of Eden, per the bible.

===================
From wiki:
Nile runs north to south




Condensed from Wikipedia article on The Nile River

The Nile flows through these modern-day Countries:

Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt, Uganda, Congo-Kinshasa, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, Eritrea
(Not one European or even present-day Arab country in the bunch)

The Nile is a major north-flowing river in northeastern Africa, generally regarded as the longest river in the world.[2] It is 6,853 km (4,258 miles) long. The Nile is an "international" river as its water resources are shared by eleven countries, namely, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo-Kinshasa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea, South Sudan, Sudan and Egypt.[3] In particular, the Nile is the primary water source of EgyptandSudan.[4]

The Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The White Nile is considered to be the headwaters and primary stream of the Nile itself. The Blue Nile, however, is the source of most of the water and silt. The White Nile is longer and rises in the Great Lakes region of central Africa, with the most distant source still undetermined but located in either Rwanda or Burundi. It flows north through Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and South Sudan.

The Blue Nile begins at Lake Tana in Ethiopia[7] and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet near the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.

The northern section of the river flows north almost entirely through the Sudanese desert to Egypt, then ends in a large delta and empties into the Mediterranean Sea. (Again, not one European country among 'em. :whistle: )

Above Khartoum the Nile is also known as the White Nile. At Khartoum the river is joined by the Blue Nile. The White Nile starts in equatorial East Africa, and the Blue Nile begins in Ethiopia. Both branches are on the western flanks of the East African Rift.

Sources

The source of the Nile is Lake Nyanza (formerly Lake Victoria)

The source of Nile from the underwater spring at the neck of Lake Victoria, Jinja.

Gish Abay is reportedly the place where the "holy water" of the first drops of the Nile develop.[20]

Formerly Lake Tanganyika drained northwards along the African Rift Valley into the White Nile, making the Nile about 1,400 kilometers (870 mi) longer, until it was blocked in Miocene times by the bulk of the Virunga Volcanoes.

In Uganda

The Nile leaves Lake Nyanza (Victoria) at Ripon Falls near Jinja, Uganda, as the Victoria Nile.... The lake it self is on the border of DR Congo, but the Nile is not a border river at this point. After leaving Lake Albert, the river continues north through Uganda and is known as the Albert Nile.

In South Sudan

The river flows into South Sudan just south of Nimule.... joins at a small lagoon called Lake No, after which the Nile becomes known as the White Nile, from the whitish clay suspended in its waters. When the Nile floods it leaves a rich silty deposit which fertilizes the soil.

The White Nile enters the enormous swamps of the Sudd region of South Sudan.

In Sudan

Below Renk the White Nile enters Sudan, it flows north to Khartoum and meets the Blue Nile.

In the north of Sudan the river enters Lake Nasser (known in Sudan as Lake Nubia), the larger part of which is in Egypt.

In Egypt

Below the Aswan High Dam, at the northern limit of Lake Nasser, the Nile resumes its historic course.

North of Cairo, the Nile splits into two branches (or distributaries) that feed the Mediterranean: the Rosetta Branch to the west and the Damietta to the east, forming the Nile Delta.




=============

Gihon is the name of the second river mentioned in the second chapter of the biblical Book of Genesis. The Gihon is mentioned as one of four rivers (along with the Tigris, Euphrates, and Pishon) issuing out of the Garden of Eden that branched from a single river within the garden. The name (Hebrew Giħn גיחון) may be interpreted as "bursting forth, gushing".

The Gihon is described as "encircling the entire land of Cush", a name associated with Ethiopia elsewhere in the Bible or Kush. This is one of the reasons that Ethiopians have long identified the Gihon (Giyon) with the Abay River (Blue Nile), which encircles the former kingdom of Gojjam. From a current geographic standpoint this would seem impossible, since two of the other rivers said to issue out of Eden, the Tigris and the Euphrates, are in Mesopotamia. However, the scholar Edward Ullendorff has argued in support of this identification.[1] The city in the Mesopotamian area which best fits the description is called Kish (derivative of Kush or Cush) located in a plain area (Sumerian 'edin') and resembles an area that is repeatedly flooded by the rivers Euphrates and Tigris.

First-century Jewish historian Josephus associated the Gihon river with the Nile.[5] (if Josephus said it was so, trust, it was so)

http://www.neverthirsty.org/bible-qa/qa-archives/question/where-was-the-locat...

========================
The name of one is Pishon; that is the one that encompasses all the land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good; there is the crystal and the onyx stone.

Rashi, the foremost biblical commentator, identifies the Pishon as the Nile River. The word Pishon, he explains, has the connotation of gushing forth and overflowing, and symbolizes the Nile River, which would overflow and irrigate the land of Egypt. Alternatively, the word Pishon is associated with the Hebrew word pishtan, flax, a reference to the ancient Egyptian flax industry, which was watered by the Nile River. (white nile)

According to this view, the area called Havilah refers to somewhere along the Nile region, perhaps Egypt or Sudan. Egyptians were known to have mined gold and precious stones back in pre-dynastic times, especially in the region known in ancient times as Nubia, modern-day southern Egypt and Sudan.

==============

So there you have it. The Garden of Eden was in Africa and encompassed a vast section of the motherland, completely encircling Ethiopia.... and can't get much blacker than Ethiopia. ;)

For clarification:


The Nile River is split into 2 rivers - the White Nile and the Blue Nile. In biblical times, this 'split' into 2 rivers were called respectively, the Pishon and the Gihon.

The biblical river, Hiddekal, is now called the Tigris unlike the Euphrates which has been called by that name for at least 3,000 years, uninterrupted.

The same is true of Ethiopia, which was NEVER colonized by any European country, thus never had its name (forcibly) changed. Ethiopia fought 2 wars with fascist Italy who tried to colonize her in the early 20th century, and kicked Mussolini's butts.

:topic: African-Americans volunteered to fight for Ethiopia when she was attacked by Italy. There is a famous black Chicago pilot who flew bomber missions during the Second Italo-Ethiopian (aka the 2nd Italo-Abyssinian) War on behalf of Ethiopia.

The Tuskegee Airman known as 'The Brown Condor' who flew bombing missions for Helaisse Selassie


John Charles Robinson (November 26, 1903 March 26, 1954) was an American aviator and activist who was hailed as the "Brown Condor" for his service in serving in the Imperial Ethiopian Air Force against Fascist Italy. Robinson pushed for equal opportunities for African-Americans during his early career, and was able to open his own eponymous aviation school in addition to initiating a program for black pilots at his college, the Tuskegee Institute. Robinson's achievements as an aviator were in stark contrast to the limited opportunities for most African-Americans in aviation careers, and were an important factor in reducing racially based prohibitions in the United States. Robinson is sometimes referred to as the "Father of the Tuskegee Airmen" for inspiring this all-black set of pilots who served during the United States' entry into World War II.


source: Wikipedia

Although TOTALLY :topic: I would be remiss not to mention the Trinidadian-born pilot who during the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1935, was put in command of the Imperial Ethiopian Air Force by Haile Selassie. He also attended the Tuskegee Airmen's school, however was kicked out for being so "colorful" (he insisted on wearing a colonel's uniform when he didn't hold that rank....) Colorful to the point that after the 2nd Italo-Ethiopia War:

Quote:

Upon his return to the United States, he was temporarily detained at Ellis Island, over the question of his nationality British or Ethiopian. Later, after getting into a public fist-fight with fellow African-American aviator John C. Robinson, Julian was ordered to leave the country.



**sigh** Nonethless, the outrageously flamboyant Hubert was an inspiration, a (Marcus) Garveyite, a member of Father Devine's church (in Harlem when he was eventually let back into the country and lived out his life), a loyal friend, a man of courage, devotion and conviction, and true black nationalist:

Quote:


The 14 November 1974 issue of Jet Magazine briefly mentions Julian, saying he was then 77 years of age, and was making plans to rescue Haile Selassie, then believed to be held prisoner by the new government of Ethiopia.



RIP brothers John Robinson and Julian Hubert, sky warriors who ran into her embrace when "Ethiopia reached out her arms....." :cloud:

'What happened to the black people of Sumer?'


the traveler asked the old man, "for ancient records show that the people of Sumer were Black. What happened to them?""Ah,"the old man sighed."They lost their history,so they died."

http://www.cocoalounge.org/viewthread.php?tid=61571&page=1#pid680447

http://jaeawkins.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/my-map_sumeria.jpg%3Fw%3D500



Sumer (/ˈsuːmər/)[note 1] was the first ancient urban civilization in the historical region of southern Mesopotamia, modern-day southern Iraq, during the Chalcolithic and Early Bronze ages, and arguably the first civilization in the world. (as opposed to Egypt which gave civilization to the non-African world).

Modern historians have suggested that Sumer was first permanently settled between c. 5500 and 4000 BC by a pre-Semitic (before Jews and Arabs) people who spoke the linguistically isolated Sumerian language (pointing to the names of cities, rivers, basic occupations, etc., as evidence).[3][4][5][6]

The Sumerians are assumed by modern-day scholars to have been the first civilizing force in Sumer, draining the marshes for agriculture, developing trade, and establishing industries, including weaving, leatherwork, metalwork, masonry, and pottery.[7]

However, some scholars contest the idea of a Proto-Euphratean language or one substrate language. It has been suggested by them and others, that the Sumerian language was originally that of the hunter and fisher peoples, who lived in the marshland and the Eastern Arabia littoral region, and were part of the Arabian bifacial culture.[12] Professor Juris Zarins believes the Sumerians were settled along the coast of Eastern Arabia, today'sPersian Gulf region, before it flooded at the end of the Ice Age.[13]

Native Sumerian rule re-emerged for about a century in the Neo-Sumerian Empire or Third Dynasty of Ur (Sumerian Renaissance) approximately 2100-2000 BC,


Origin of name[edit]

The Sumerians referred to themselves as ĝ saĝ gg-ga (cuneiform: 𒌦 𒊕 𒈪 𒂵), phonetically uŋ saŋ giga, literally meaning "the black-headed people", and to their land as ki-en-gi(-r) ('place' + 'lords' + 'noble'), meaning "place of the noble lords".[16

==========================

Sumer was the southernmost region of ancient Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq and Kuwait) which is generally considered the cradle of civilization. The name comes from Akkadian, the language of the north of Mesopotamia, and means land of the civilized kings. The Sumerians called themselves the black headed people and their land, in cuneiform script, was simply the land or the land of the black headed people. In the biblical Book of Genesis Sumer is known as Shinar. According to the Sumerian King List, when the gods first gave human beings the gifts necessary for cultivating society, they did so by establishing the city of Eridu in the region of Sumer. While the Sumerian city of Uruk is held to be the oldest city in the world, the ancient Mesopotamians believed that it was Eridu and that it was here that order was established and civilization began.


The Rise of Cities

Whenever the Sumerian civilization was first established in the region, by 3600 BCE they had invented the wheel, writing, the sail boat, agricultural processes such as irrigation, and the concept of the city (though China and India also lay claim to `the first cities in the world). It is generally accepted that the first cities in the world rose in Sumer and, among the most important, were Eridu, Uruk, Ur, Larsa, Isin, Adab, Kullah, Lagash, Nippur, and Kish.

and finally:





Sumeria and sumer

http://web.cocc.edu/cagatucci/classes/hum213/Maps/M6_1.jpg


c. 3500 - 2300
BCE Sumerian urban culture centered in Sumer [in what is now modern day Iraq],
and Sumerian accomplishments included using the wheel, advancing mathematics (e.g. for measuring time), and creating the worlds first writing system - cuneiform - to keep records of what they did," thus beginning written human history (Kort 7). Many migrating peoples entered the region, some as peaceful settlers, others as invaders intent on conquest. Mesopotamia "must be seen as one of the first significant multilingual, multicultural societies in history, with its 3,000 years of development and no less that four major periods under different ruling groups (Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian and Persian)" ("Mesopotamia: The Formation of Cities and Earliest Literatures").
c. 2600? BCE
Gilgamesh Gilgamesh, epic hero and legendary king of Uruk--a Sumerian city located on the Euphrates River in
southern Mesopotamia (see Map 1.3)--is apparently based on a historical figure . . . [whose name is] "found in the lists of Sumerian kings" and who may have "reigned in thecity of Uruk . . . sometime between 2800 and 2500 B.C.E." (Davis and others [Book 1] 2, 56).
c. 2300 - 2000
BCE The Akkadians, a Semitic
people [originally] from the interior of the Arabian peninsula, conquered the non-Semitic Sumerians of Mesopotamia, led by Akkadian King Sargon I
(born 2337? - died 2279? BCE), who is credited with establishing the first known empire in historystretching from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea (Davis and others [Book 1] 17; emphasis added). However, Sargon's united Akkadian empire did not long survive his death, and was subsequently divided into the kingdoms of Babylonia (southern Mesopotamia), Assyria (northern Mesopotamia), and "Elam (Persia) to the east [ofMesopotamia]" (Davis and others [Book 1] 18; emphasis added). See Map 1.3.
c. 2100 - 1600 BCE: Epic of
Gilgamesh Heroic stories of legendary Sumerian king Gilgamesh
, passed down from oral tradition, were written down in cuneiform on clay tablets by Mesopotamian poets and were eventually shaped into the Epic of Gilgamesh, "the most influential literary epic to come out of ancient Mesopotamia," though only fragments of this epic have been recovered to date (Davis and others [Book 1] 62).
c. 1750 BCE
Babylonian King Hammarabi--known for the Code of Hammarabi
, one of the world's first written set of laws--united much of Mesopotamia during his reign (r. 1792-1750 BCE) and established his capital at Babylon (Davis and others [Book 1] 18). See Map 1.3. Babylon [ruins located south ofBaghdad in modern Iraq], a chief commercial city of the Tigris and Euphrates river system, became one of the most famous cities of antiquity, achieving its greatest glory as capital of the Neo-Babylonian empire under Nebuchadezzer II (r. 605-561 BCE) (Babylon).





So, you ask, while the above proves that Mesopotamia and its largest province(?) Sumer was black.... and that the regions we now call the Middle East was black, what does this have to do with the bible?

Abraham, the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam was born in the Sumer city of Ur.

(to be cont'd)

(cont'd from last post) Sumer


Ur was a city in the region of Sumer, southern Mesopotamia, in what is modern-day Iraq. According to biblical tradition, the city is named after the man who founded the first settlement there, Ur, though this has been disputed. The citys other biblical link is to the patriarch Abraham who left Ur to settle in the land of Canaan. Ur was a significant port city on the Persian Gulf which began, most likely, as a small village in the Ubaid Period of Mesopotamian history (5000-4100 BCE) and was an established city by 3800 BCE continually inhabited until 450 BCE.


Sumerian Questions and Answers

--Hebrew and Sumerian
> Is Hebrew a daughter language of Sumerian?

No. Hebrew belongs to the Afro-Asiatic language family. Sumerian is a different language family.

--There have been no Sumerians for almost 4,000 years.

--The country is called Sumer, not Sumeria

--Sumerians Live During or Before the Time of Biblical Moses?

> I am interested to know if Sumerian were exist as a people either during the
> time of Moses or before?

The Sumerians flourished before the time of Moses, who lived in the middle of the second millenium B.C.E.

--The Sumerian language ceased to be spoken before the time of Moses.

In the book of Genesis 11:2, the Bible sets the story of the tower of Babel in the land of Shinar, which is how the Hebrews wrote Sumer. Shinar is also briefly mentioned in the Bible at Genesis 14:1, Isaiah 11:11, Zechariah 5:11, and Daniel 1:2.

In Genesis 11:28-31, the Bible describes how Abraham, the putative ancestor of Moses and all Hebrews, was a native of the Sumerian city of Ur.

The History and Geography of Human Genes by Cavalli-Sforza et al. finds distinctive genes in Kuwait and speculates that Kuwaitis are the genetic descendants of the Sumerians.

Upshot: Non-Semitic-speaking Sumer which in 2016 is has been cut up into various states/countries (Kuwait, Iraq, etc) in Northeast Africa and is now occupied by Semitic people who call themselves Arab, was a wholly black country during biblical times.

What happened to the black people of Sumer: ABRAHAM, the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam was born in Sumer


Abraham is originally called by the name of Abram which means "father of a multitude" but later God changed his name to Abraham which means "father of many nations". Abraham first migrated to Haran and then to Canaan. (Gen 11:31, 12:4-5).

The Bible shifts its focus in Genesis 12 from the history of the entire human race to a man named Abram, the first Hebrew, and he lived in Ur.

The Journey
(Abraham Visits 17 Locations - ALL in Africa)
-
The land of Canaan (named after Canaan, the son of Ham whom Noah cursed) would be the inheritance of Abraham's descendants but Abraham would only be a pilgrim there. On his journey to Canaan there were seventeen places that Abraham visited recorded in the Old Testament. Each of these places are important in the history of Israel and there is evidence of their existence in ancient times through archaeology.

1. Ur of Sumer was the original home of Abraham. It was one of the greatest cities of the ancient world, and Ur was the capital of the ancient Sumer Empire in ancient Mesopotamia. Sometime around 1900 BC the Lord told Abraham to leave his home and country and go to a land that He would show him. He obeyed and departed from Ur with his father Terah and his nephew Lot. (Gen. 11:31; Acts 7:2-4).

2. Haran in Mesopotamia was the first stopping place recorded inn the Bible. They dwelt here until after the death of his father Terah, and in Haran the Lord called Abraham again (Gen. 12:1-4; Acts 7:4). Nahor, Abraham's brother, had probably settled in Haran before they departed.

3. Damascus was a great city in the ancient world and it was located in ancient Aram (Syria NOTE: In biblical times, that area was a part of black Canaan). Abraham and his nephew Lot had departed Haran and followed the leading of the Lord. They moved southward and passed by the city of Damascus along the way and it might have been at this time that Abraham secured his servant Eliezer (Gen. 15:2).

4. Shechem or Sichem was the first place where Abraham came to in Canaan. The Lord appeared to Abraham again and confirmed his promises, and It was here at Shechem that Abraham built the first altar to the Lord (Gen. 12:6, 7). There is much history in this place (Joshua 24:1, Judges 9:6, 1 Kings 12:1).

5. Bethel. Abraham continued his journey southward and came to a mountain near Bethel, where he built a second altar (Genesis 12:8).

6. Egypt. Abraham and his family journeyed southward through the land of Canaan and a major famine hit they migrated to Egypt. In Egypt Abraham deceived the King in order to save his own life and was expelled from the land of Egypt (Gen. 12:9-20). The king of Egypt feared Abraham because of a dream and allowed him to leave with all of his possessions.

7. Bethel. Abraham and his nephew Lot returned to their former home at Bethel, but on account of strife between their herdsmen they parted each others company as friends. (Gen. 13:1-9).

8. Hebron. Lot chose the warm climate and lush plains of the Jordan Valley and pitched his tent toward Sodom, and Abraham left the desirable Sodom and Gomorrah and sojourned at Hebron in Mamre where he heard again from the Lord and built an altar (Gen. 13:10-18). An interesting note is that Hebron was one of the oldest cities in ancient Canaan and Numbers 13:22 says that "it was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt."

9. Dan. Four kings of the east came to Canaan who were united under Chedorlaomer of Elam (the territory of ancient Ur) and made war against the five kings of Canaan. In their conquest of the Jordan Valley (in Canaan [/color]) they captured Lot as a prisoner of war, and when Abraham heard of it he pursued the four kings and overtook them at Dan and defeated them with the help of the Lord (Gen. 14:1-14), Abraham had assembled an army of 318 men. The city of Dan was located in the north between Hazor and Damascus (Again, Canaan).

10. Hobah. Abraham and his army of servants smote the army of the 4 kings of Chedorlaomer and chased them to Hobah, which was located near Damascus (Canaan). Lot and all the people with them were rescued including their belongings (Gen. 14:15, 16).

11. Salem. On his return Abraham passed through Salem (Jerusalem)(in Canaan) and was met by a man named Melchizedek whose name means "king of righteousness". Melchizedek was a mysterious man regarded in the Bible as the priest and king of Salem. This was the first mention of the word "priest" in the Bible and he gave to Abraham bread and wine. The Bible also mentions that Abraham paid him 1/10th of all his spoils from the war as a "tithe". Hebrews 7:3 gives an interesting description of Melchizedek and therefore his identity remains a mystery. The king of Sodom also came out to meet Abraham at the same place (Gen. 14:17-21).

12. Hebron (in Canaan). When Abraham finally returned to Hebron God reminded him of his covenant with him and changed his name from Abram to Abraham (Gen. 15:1-21; 17:1-27). During his stay at this place Ishmael was born (Gen. 16: 1-16) and the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed (Gen. 18:1 - 19:38)

13. Gerar. Abraham left Hebron (located in Canaan) and for a time sojourned among the Philistines in Gerar which was in southern Canaan west of Beersheba. It was in Gerar that Abraham deceived King Abimelech (Gen. 20:1-18).

14. Beersheba (town in Canaan). Abraham remained at Beersheba for some time. During this time he made a covenant with king Abimelech. Later he gave birth to a natural son of him and Sarah in his old age, he named him Isaac which means "laughter". When Isaac was born Ishmael was expelled and his mother Hagar fled and was met by "the Angel of the Lord" which was the Lord Himself (Gen. 21:1-34).

15. Moriah. It was in Beersheba that Abraham received the command from the Lord to take his only son Isaac to Mount Moriah, a mountain of Salem (located in Canaan), to offer Isaac as a burnt offering (Gen. 22:1-18).

16. Beersheba. Abraham returned to Beersheba and dwelt there for some time.

17. Hebron. Abraham bought the cave of Machpelah as the family sepulcher and buried his wife Sarah there (Gen. 23: 1-20). At the age of 175 Abraham died, and was also buried in the cave at Machpelah.



Ur (city in Sumer) in Smiths Bible Dictionary was the land of Haran's nativity, Ge 11:28 the place from which Terah and Abraham started "to go into the land of Canaan." Ge 11:31 It is called in Genesis "Ur of the Chaldaeans," while in the Acts St. Stephen places it, by implication, in Mesopotamia. Act 7:2,4


"What happened to the black people of Sumer?" the traveler asked the old man, "for ancient records show that the people of Sumer were Black. What happened to them?"

"Ah,"the old man sighed. "They lost their history, so they died."



Everything in the bible takes place on the continent of Africa. The bible is a chronicler of events that took place on the continent of Africa. Abraham was born in the city-state of Ur in Sumer on the continent of Africa. His birth, journeys and subsequent, place in history, happened over 5,000 years before the first Arab set foot on African soil. Abraham was one of the black people of Sumer. He was lost to us, but today, our ancestor is found.

Sumer (in its various names) is the 2nd most mentioned country in the bible behind Israel


l. The Garden of Eden was (partially) in Sumer (Genesis description of "between the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers" on the eastern borders)
2. Sumer was the greatest state in Mesopotamia!
3. Noah built the ark in Sumer
4. The Tower of Babel was in Sumer
5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Sumer !
6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Sumer!
7. Jacob met Rachel in Sumer
8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Sumer
9. Assyria, which is in Sumer, conquered the ten tribes of Israel
10. Amos cried out in Sumer!
11 Babylon, which is in Sumer, destroyed Jerusalem
12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Sumer!
13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Sumer.
14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing on the wall" in Sumer
15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews captive into Sumer
16. Ezekiel preached in Sumer
17. The wise men were from Sumer
18. Peter preached in Sumer


Israel is the nation most often mentioned in the Bible. The second most mentioned is Sumer! However, that is not the name that is used in the Bible. The names used in the Bible are Babylon , Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia ... The word Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers ..

Although called by many names, Sumer is an African country with deep roots and is a very significant country in the Bible.



http://www.christianforums.com/threads/name-the-second-most-mentioned-country...

All of the above are in present day Iraq, named after the Sumer city of Urek. All of present day Iraq are in the biblical African country of Sumer.

Next: The Ethiopian foundation of the Catholic Church

The first Christian Church was founded in Africa, not Rome, and by St. Mark rather than Rome's St. Peter. It has a Pope separate from the Roman Catholic Church's Pope who is 'recognized' by the Roman Catholic Pope.


Christianity is an African religion. It began in Africa, all the participants were African, and the first and oldest Christian church, the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, is in Egypt, i.e., Africa. It was established in the 1st century (approx. 42AD), thus when speaking of the oldest church in Christiandom, pre-dating the Roman Catholic Church by 400 years, we are speaking of a wholly AFRICAN church (remember, Arabs didn't set foot on Egyptian soil until 600 years later, in 638 A.D.).


From wiki:
Quote:

The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria is the largest Christian Church in Egypt.[1]

According to tradition, the Church was established by Saint Mark, an apostle and evangelist, in the middle of the 1st century (approximately AD 42).[2] The head of the Church and the See of Alexandria is the Patriarch of Alexandria on the Holy See of Saint Mark, who also carries the title of Coptic Pope. The See of Alexandria is titular, and today the Coptic Pope presides from Saint Mark's Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in the Abbassia District in Cairo.

The Coptic Orthodox Church belongs to the Oriental Orthodox family of Churches, which has been a distinct Christian body since the schism following the Council of Chalcedon in AD 451, when it took a different position over Christology from that of the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church. The precise Christological differences that caused the split with the Coptic Christians are still disputed, highly technical, and mainly concerned with the nature of Christ. The foundational roots of the Coptic Church are based in Egypt, but it has a worldwide following.

~6.5 - 16 million total: ~12,000,000 in Egypt + ~2,000,000 to ~4,000,000 Abroad (Diaspora)

Which brings us to the oldest Christian church, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church:

Quote:

Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church is the largest of the Oriental Orthodox Christian Churches. The Ethiopian Church was administratively part of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria since the first half of the 4th century until 1959, when it was granted its own Patriarch by the Coptic Orthodox Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of All Africa, Cyril VI. The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, being one of the oldest Christian churches and a non-Chalcedonian Church, is not in communion with the Ethiopian Catholic Church, a Chalcedonian Church. Ethiopia is the second country only after Armenia to have officially proclaimed Christianity as state religion (in 333AD) though some argue it may even be the first.[1]


The Ethiopian Church is the undisputed OLDEST church in Christiandom. What the above says is that Armenia MAY HAVE made it a "state religion" first, not that the one in Armenia is older.
Quote:


One of the few pre-colonial Christian Churches in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church has a membership of between 45 and 50 million people,[2] the majority of whom live in Ethiopia.[3] The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church is a foundingmember of the World Council of Churches.[4]

Tewahedo is a Ge'ez word meaning "being made one". This word refers to the Oriental Orthodox belief in the one perfectly unified Nature of Christ; i.e., a complete union of the Divine and Human Natures into one nature is self-evident in order to accomplish the divine salvation of humankind, as opposed to the "two Natures of Christ" belief commonly held by the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. Which caused the break-up

The Ethiopian Eunuch, Acts 8:26-39


So far, we've been dealing with/PROVING that every incident in the Old Testament happened on African soil with African people playing the SOLE role in the bible. Now we move into the New Testament, beginning with the Ethiopian Eunuch:


Quote:

The story of the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8 is a marvelous depiction of Gods role in evangelism. The story starts with Philip, one of the seven original deacons, who had just preached the gospel in Samaria (Acts 8:48). Philip was visited by an angel who told him to go south to a road that ran from Jerusalem to Gaza, in the desert (Acts 8:26). Philip didnt ask why he was being sent to the middle of nowhere; he just went (verse 27). On the road, in a chariot, was the Ethiopian eunuch, who was just returning from Jerusalem. The eunuch was sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah. The Spirit of the Lord told Philip to go over and join the chariot, and when Philip drew close he overheard the eunuch reading from Isaiah out loud. Philip asked the Ethiopian whether or not he understood what he was reading. The eunuch replied, How can I, unless someone guides me? He then invited Philip to come sit with him in the chariot (verse 31). The passage the Ethiopian eunuch was reading was this: He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, / and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, / so he did not open his mouth. / In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. / Who can speak of his descendants? / For his life was taken from the earth (Acts 8:3233; cf. Isaiah 53:78). The eunuch was wondering whom the prophet was talking about, himself or someone else? (Acts 8:34). Philip used this opportunity to explain the passage: this was a prophecy about Jesus Christ, who meekly gave His life to save the world. As Philip explained the gospel, the Ethiopian eunuch believed. When they came to some water by the side of the road, the eunuch asked to be baptized (Acts 8:36).

Philip agreed to baptize him, and the Ethiopian eunuch gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him (Acts 8:38). As soon as the Ethiopian eunuch came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing (verse 39). Tradition says that the eunuch carried the gospel back home to Ethiopia and founded the church there. Philip found himself at Azotus, and he carried on preaching the gospel on his way to Caesarea (Acts 8:40).

There are many elements of Gods providence and intervention in the story of the Ethiopian eunuch. The account reveals the importance of these three things: the Word of God, the Holy Spirits leading, and a human evangelist. In order for a person to accept the truth, he must first hear the truth preached (Romans 10:14). It is Gods desire that the truth be preached everywhere (Acts 1:8). The Spirit of the Lord had been preparing the eunuchs heart to receive the gospel. As the eunuch read Isaiah, he began to ask questions, and at just the right moment the Lord brought Philip across his path.


Note again, it is black Ethiopia, not white Sweden, England, Poland, nor even yellow China, that is mentioned in the bible.

The illuminating thing about the above (and in Acts, itself), is that the Ethiopian Eunuch is reading a scroll of Isaiah. This tells us that

1) he's educated, literate for he can read:

Quote:

when Philip drew close he overheard the eunuch reading from Isaiah out loud.



2) Reading biblical scripture and just returning from Jerusalem, he's a JEW.

Quote:

the Ethiopian eunuch, who was just returning from Jerusalem


Remember the Queen of Sheba, a Candace of Ethiopia? She visited Solomon 600 prior to this account of the Eunuch. She left carrying his child and established Judaism in Ethiopia when she returned. Today, of course, the Azkenake Jews in Israel are refusing to allow them to "return" to Israel, but that's another story.

3) He's an important personage - he's the Candace's treasurer, one of the richest rulers in the ancient world.

4) He's important and prolly RICH - we think of a chariot as a single-person vehicle used in wars, but notice:

Quote:

He then invited Philip to come sit with him in the chariot (verse 31).

and, going to his wealth and/or position:
Quote:

the Ethiopian eunuch gave orders to stop the chariot"

Which means he not only had a chariot, but he had a DRIVER in his employ to carry him around.

This passage in the Book of Acts occurred BEFORE Christians broke off from Judaism and Christianity became a religion in its own right (Christianity began as a sect of Judaism :yes: ). It's significance is that the Ethiopian Eunuch arrived on the scene BEFORE Saul became Paul and gave black Christianity to non-blacks when he established Christian churches in Asia and Europe. (Christianity started off a black religion, a black man, Paul (later) "shared" it with whites, whites conquered Paul's black descendants, then gave the religion and the tenets he canonized BACK to his black descendants, white-washed, i.e., white Jesus, white disciples, white AFRICA).

:topic: Interesting what Jesus had to say about eunuchs in Matthew 19:12:


For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.


Born from their mothers' wombs: homosexuals

Man-made eunuchs: castrated

self-made eunuchs: priests

But, that's another topic. :whistle:

Btw, Phillip was a devout Jew, in the bible BEFORE Paul established the Christian churches abroad (i.e., gave the religion to pagan white people). As such, he would have followed all the Jewish laws to the letter. One big no-no amongst Jews was that no castrated Eunuch could enter the temple; they were an abomination. Jesus was a Jew, as well. He clearly delineated the 3 kinds of eunuchs - one born that way, the next castrated eunuchs, and the third, those men who chose chastity and abstinence in pursuit of Godly goals. But only the castrated eunuch was outlawed from the temple.

Obviously, the Ethiopian Eunuch was NOT a "castrated" eunuch, else Phillip would not have sought him out, gotten into his carriage, and certainly never have BAPTIZED him. Prolly wasn't a priest for he wouldn't have wondered who Isaiah was talking about in the passage - himself or someone else? Obviously an important, literate man, if he were a priest, he would preach to Phillip, not vice versa. So what does that leave - a eunuch born that way. Just an interesting aside.



Next up, the apostle Paul, black man

Jesus Christ


Let's recap. First, Arabs didn't set foot on the African continent until 638 A.D., thus whenever you read about Syria, especially, during biblical times, they're talking about the black country of Sumer. Secondly, during biblical times, Jerusalem was a black (Canaanite) city.




Quote:

Jerusalem was not founded by Jews, i.e. adherents of the Jewish religion. It was founded between 3000 BCE and 2600 BCE by the the Canaanites, the common ancestors of Palestinians, Lebanese, many Syrians and Jordanians, and many Jews. But when it was founded Jews did not exist.

Top Ten Reasons East Jerusalem does not belong to Jewish-Israelis


Quote:

On his return Abraham passed through Salem (Jerusalem)(in Canaan)







https://www.enterthebible.org/media/maps/source/NT2_1cGalilee.jpg
map of israel in the time of jesus

Note that Mary and Joseph had to travel through black Samaria to get to black Egypt and in his return, Jesus also had to pass through black Samaria from Egypt to Nazareth.



Mary and Joseph went to Egypt to escape their baby (Jesus) being killed (all boys under the age of 2 were to be slaughtered). If you are in hiding, where do you hide? In a place where EVERYBODY looks like you, of course. It would make no sense for me to go on the lam and "hide" in South Dakota or Montana (about 2% of the pops are black). No I'm going to hide in Atlanta or the Southside of Chicago where I "blend in" with the rest of the population. Egypt was wholly black at the time of Jesus' birth (remember?). Mary and Joseph and their soon to be born son, Jesus, would not "hide" in a place where they would be noticed, stick out from the rest so to speak.

http://www.bible-history.com/maps/images/john-jesus-goes-through-samaria.gif


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Galilee_to_Judea.gif


Thirdly, all of Judea was black, the land of the Canaanites:

The first mention of the "province of Judea" is in the book of Ezra, Ezr 5:8. In the apocryphal books the word "province" is dropped, and throughout them and the New Testament the expressions are "the land of Judea," "Judea." In a wide and more improper sense, the term Judea was sometimes extended to the whole country of the Canaanites, its ancient inhabitants; and even in the Gospels we read of the coasts of Judea "beyond Jordan." Mt 19:1; Mr 10:1 Judea was, in strict language, the name of the third district, West of the Jordan and south of Samaria.
http://www.bible-history.com/geography/ancient-israel/judea.html




Into the black land of the Canaanites was born Jesus Christ.

The apostle Paul


Paul established the Christian Church in Rome, most of Asia Minor and Eastern Europe. More than any other, he brought Gentiles into Christianity. That Paul was a black man is established in the bible when he was mistaken for an Egyptian:


Acts 21:38

Speaks to the People
37As Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the commander, "May I say something to you?" And he said, "Do you know Greek? 38"Then you are not the Egyptian who some time ago stirred up a revolt and led the four thousand men of the Assassins out into the wilderness?" 39But Paul said, "I am a Jew of Tarsus in Cilicia,

Quote:

Paul the Egyptian



Who was the Apostle Paul?

We all read our Bible skimming and skipping over critical facts to get to the point we want to make. We pick and choose what we will read and understand and usually it s within the prescribed mode of orthodoxy. When we come to curious or hard sayings we rationalize with a modern and orthodox mindset and for awhile that methodology answers the surface questions.

I looked into the statement made about Paul, the latent Apostle of Jesus and here is what he said.

Just as Paul was about to be brought into the barracks, he said to the tribune, May I say something to you? The tribune replied, Do you know Greek? Then you are not the Egyptian who recently stirred up a revolt and led the four thousand assassins out into the wilderness? Paul replied, I am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of an important city; I beg you, let me speak to the people. When he had given him permission, Paul stood on the steps and motioned to the people for silence; and when there was a great hush, he addressed them in the Hebrew language, saying: Brothers and fathers, listen to the defense which I now make to you." When they heard that he spoke to them in the Hebrew language, they were even more quiet.

The Apostle Paul or Shaul was called an Egyptian. What did that term mean in that time? Just who was this man whose words and doctrine have taken precedence over the Old Testament, the Apostles and even Jesus the Messiah. Was the statement that 'he was thought to be an Egyptian', just a sideline or does it have religious and ethnic significance? Should his ethnicity be weighed in our assessment of him?

Now remember, the Egyptians that are in Egyptians now ARE NOT the original Egyptians. The Original Egyptian were Black and not Arabic. When I talk about Paul being an Egyptian I am talking about Paul being seen and known as a Black man in a Black world.

http://www.essaysbyekowa.com/Paul_the_egyptian.htm


Like Jesus who spent his formative years in Egypt hiding from Herod's death edit, i.e., hiding IN PLAIN SIGHT, moving through black Egypt like a fish among other fish swims unnoticed through the waters, Paul, too, is mistaken for an Egyptian. That is, the Jew, Paul, is mistaken for a black man.

Btw, the reason we have to go on "appearance" (not to mention common sense - what 'white' child "hides" in a group of black children?) is because Race is a recent construct of Europeans. There was no such thing as the 3 great races (white, black and yellow) in biblical times. Only with the Atlantic slave trade did whites come up with race as a way to distinguish themselves (FALSELY!) as a people separate from and superior to non-white peoples.
