Title: Black History and The Bible

The Bible and Black History
  • Gen.106 Ham's descendants were Cush, Egypt, Put,
    and Canaan. 7 Cush's descendants were Seba,
    Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. Raamah's
    descendants were Sheba and Dedan. 8 Cush was
    the father of Nimrod, the first mighty warrior on
    the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter whom the
    LORD blessed.

Texas Public Schools are Teaching Students That
Black People are Descendants of Ham
  • The claim that Africans are descendants of Ham,
    whom Noah curses in  Genesis 9 after he saw the
    nakedness of his father, has long been used as a
    biblical justification for  anti-black
    racism and slavery.

Black History and the Bible
  • For years scholars, theologians, and
    archaeologists have debated the answer to the
    question, "How did the Israelites look
    physically?" Although the Bible and other
    historical documents have left much proof of the
    physical appearance of the biblical Israelites,
    much of this information is still unknown to the
    masses.The popular belief today among Christians,
    scholars and theologians, is that the people
    known as "Ashkenazi Jews" are the direct
    descendants of the Biblical Israelites. Can this
    be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt?
  • The answer to that is NO.

  • The Bible, which will be used here as the main
    source, supported by history and archaeology
    proves that the Ashkenazi Jews are not the
    physical descendants of the biblical Hebrews. In
    addition, it reveals who the true descendants
    are. The answer may leave you in shock.Israel is
    mentioned in the bible over 2,500 times. The
    scriptures contain the Hebrews' entire history.
    In fact, no other people on the face of the Earth
    have such an extensive recorded history, not even
    the ancient Egyptians. Every thing we need to
    know about the ancient Hebrews is contained in
    Scripture. So, let's examine these facts,
    information that to this day remains unknown or
    hidden to many bible readers.

  • Gen.106 Ham's descendants were Cush, Egypt, Put,
    and Canaan. 7 Cush's descendants were Seba,
    Havilah, Sabtah, Raamah, and Sabteca. Raamah's
    descendants were Sheba and Dedan. 8 Cush was
    the father of Nimrod, the first mighty warrior on
    the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter whom the
    LORD blessed.
  • 10 The first cities in his kingdom were Babylon,
    Erech, Accad, and Calneh in Shinar Babylonia. 11
    He went from that land to Assyria and built
    Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah,

  • The history of the Israelite nation began in
    Egypt, the Land of Ham. They entered Egypt 66 in
    number, (not including Joseph, his wife and two
    sons who were already in Egypt), and left
    numbering over two million people. Ancient Israel
    spent 430 years in Egypt. For half that time they
    enjoyed good favor with the Egyptians, but for
    the remainder of those years they were enslaved
    and horribly mistreated by them.

  • We know that Nimrod was the son of Cush. Babylon
    had two elements in her population in the
    beginning. The northern Accadians and the
    southern Sumerians were both Cushites. The finds
    of recent explorations in the Mesopotamian valley
    reveal that these ancient inhabitants were black,
    with the cranial formation of Ethiopians.The
    art, science and culture of the earlier unmixed
    Chaldeans was Cushite.

  • Rawlinson speaking in his Ancient Monarchies
    decided that the ruins of Chaldea show Cushite
    origin. The names of Chaldea and Ethiopia are
    linked in a way to render any other
    interpretation impossible. The great city of the
    earlier period was Niffer a corruption of Nimrod.
    The language of the ruins is radically different
    from the Semitic tongue of the Assyrian
    empire.Rawlinson said concerning the Babylonians
    said, "Though not possessed of many natural
    advantages, the Chaldean people exhibited a
    fertility of invention, a genius of energy which
    places them high in the scale of nations and most
    especially those descended from Hamitic stock."

  • The Chaldean Noah entered the ark with his wife
    and children. Upon the recession of the waters he
    sent out three birds three times. He built an
    altar and offered sacrifice.
  • The life of the Semitic and Hamitic races must
    have been closely associated after the deluge. So
    close is the apparent relationship, that some
    authorities have looked upon Abraham as Hamitic.
    Abraham came from Ur of the Chaldees. But he
    descended by direct line front a Semitic father.
    His mother may have been Hamitic for Abraham was
    spoken of as a Chaldean.

Who Were the Olmecs?
  • Olmec were related to peoples of Africa based
    primarily on their interpretation of facial
    features of Olmec statues. They additionally
    contend that epigraphical, genetic, and
    osteological evidence supports their
    claims.citation needed The idea that the Olmecs
    were related to Africans was first suggested by
    José Melgar, who discovered the first colossal
    head at Hueyapan (now Tres Zapotes) in 1862 and
    subsequently published two papers that attributed
    this head to a "Negro race."5 The view was
    espoused in the early 20th century by Leo Wiener
    and others.6 Some modern proponents such as
    Ivan van Sertima and Clyde Ahmad Winters have
    identified the Olmecs with the Mandé people of
    West Africa.7

Territory of Olmec Land
The Olmec were the first civilization in the
Western Hemisphere - Americas
  • The Olmec flourished during Mesoamerica's
    Formative period, dating roughly from 3000 BCE to
    about 400 BCE. As the first Mesoamerican
    civilization, they laid much of the foundation
    for the civilizations that would follow

This photo and drawing illustrate a recently
discovered 3,000-year-old Olmec-style stone
monument The 2,700-year-old site is the oldest
known pyramid tomb in Mesoamerica, which roughly
encompasses modern-day Mexico and Central America,
A carved monolith unearthed in Mexico may show
that the Olmec civilization, one of the oldest in
the Americas, was more widespread than thought or
that another culture thrived alongside it 3,000
years ago.

Ancient Egypt
Egypt Religion
In Hartford and vicinity, she met with several
persons who believed in the 'Second Advent'
doctrines or, the immediate personal appearance
of Jesus Christ. At first she thought she had
never heard of 'Second Advent.' But when it was
explained to her, she recollected having once
attended Mr. Miller's meeting in New York, where
she saw a great many enigmatical pictures hanging
on the wall, which she could not understand, and
which, being out of the reach of her
understanding, failed to interest her. In this
section of country, she attended two
camp-meetings of the believers in these
doctrines-the 'second advent' excitement being
then at its greatest height. The last meeting was
at Windsor Lock. The people, as a matter of
course, eagerly inquired of her concerning her
belief, as it regarded their most important
tenet. She told them it had not been revealed to
her perhaps, if she could read, she might see it
differently. Sometimes, to their eager inquiry,
'Oh, don't you believe the Lord is coming?' she
answered, 'I believe the Lord is as near as he
can be, and not be it. She was invited to join
them in their religious exercises, and accepted
the invitation-praying, and talking in her own
peculiar style, and attracting many about her by
her singing.
Sojourner Truth and The Second Advent of Christ -
Why Did She Change Her Name?
She was impressed with the people she met in the
Advent Movement moved to Battle Creek a year
later. For the next 27 years, the illiterate
ex-slave made Battle Creek her home. In 1867 she
and her family moved into town, where she lived
until her death in 1883. It is believed that she
was baptized into the SDA church by Uriah Smith.
Sojourner Truth, along with several members of
her family, are buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, on
the east side of the city near the grave-site of
James and Ellen White
Sojourner Truth 105 years old
The new monument replaces one which has stood for
more than 60 years. It is of Georgia marble and
is of the same stone that was used in the
monument that was used on the grave of President
Franklin D. Roosevelt at Hyde Park.

Sojourner Truth recognized that Gods' true day of
worshiped was on the 7th day (Sabbath-Saturday)
and not Sunday and though she had no formal
education, she had the wisdom and understanding
that came from God. She lived in a period that
was marked by a great spiritual revival. There
were many schools of thought that were competing
for the minds of the people but Sojourner Truth
accepted the Second Advent of Christ, his
imminent return over the more popular Rapture
doctrine. She had to live up to her name and
preach truth and not error. She totally rejected
the rapture doctrine.
What is the purpose of Truth
  • Jn. 832 - And you shall know the truth, and the
    truth shall make you free.
  • Rom.614 - For sin shall not be master over you,
    for you are not under law but under grace.
  • 18 - Being then made free from sin, ye became the
    servants of righteousness.
