The Black Virgin of Montserrat

The Black Virgin of Montserrat

Paintings & Other Images, The Evidence
The Black Virgin of Montserrat is just one of many statues that feature a black Mary holding a black baby Christ. According to "renovators" of the statue, it became black over centuries due to candle smoke. However, that doesn't seem to make sense when we consider that the statue was once inscribed with the following: Negra Sum Sed Formosa "I am Black But Beautiful." The Black Virgin of Montserrat is found in Catalonia, Spain. Please Take A Moment To Share If you enjoyed this study, please take a moment to click the button below and share it. Thanks in advance.
King David Had Reddish Brown Skin (Ruddy)

King David Had Reddish Brown Skin (Ruddy)

Paintings & Other Images, The Evidence
Part of the confusion surrounding the word "ruddy" is that what is being taught has it's origins in British Israelism. Ruddy has never referred to blushing white skin or sunburned skin. It has always been used to refer to reddish brown animals and people. "And he sent, and brought him in. Now he wasruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he." - 1 Samuel 16:12 Suggested Reading King David: The Black Hebrew With Ruddy Skin and Red Hair Ruddy: Reddish Brown Skin Tones In The Bible Please Take A Moment To Share If you enjoyed this study, please take a moment to click the button below and share it.

Elamites: The Black Descendants of Shem

Elamites: The Black Descendants of Shem

Paintings & Other Images, The Evidence
The Elamites present a huge problem for those that teach Shem's descendants weren't black. They painted themselves on the walls of Susa, and they painted themselves as black people. "The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram." - Genesis 10:22 "And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield." - Isaiah 22:6 "Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might." - Jeremiah 49:35 Please Take A Moment To Share If you enjoyed this study, please take a moment to click the button below and share it.

Evidence of Black Canaanites

Evidence of Black Canaanites

Paintings & Other Images, The Evidence
The Canaanites were also known as the Phoenicians. While we are bombarded with images of white Canaanites, their art tells a different story. The art shows them with black faces, which also matches the Biblical teaching that Ham's descendants were black. "And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan." - Genesis 9:18 Please Take A Moment To Share If you enjoyed this study, please take a moment to click the button below and share it.
