Zondervan Bible Dictionary: Negroes Are Not From The Line of Ham

Zondervan Bible Dictionary: Negroes Are Not From The Line of Ham

Historical References, The Evidence
This is perhaps one of the best known references found within a major publication. The choice of words indicates that Negroes are from the line of Shem.. "Ham: The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites." - Zondervan Bible Dictionary We know that Japheth is the origin of Europeans and Ham is the origin of Africans, which only leaves Shem as the origin of the Negroes. However, it is important to note that Zondervan does not provide any explanation for the statement as to why they don't believe Negroes came from Ham.

880 A.D: The Tribe of Dan In Africa

880 A.D: The Tribe of Dan In Africa

Historical References, The Evidence
This piece of historical evidence proves that the Hebrews were in Africa over 800 years after Jerusalem fell to Emperor Titus in 70 A.D. “While it was regarded as merely a myth for many years − appearing in several written and oral versions − something striking occurred in the year 880 C.E. that left an imprint on Jewish consciousness for centuries to come. One day, a small, very dark-skinned Jew named Eldad showed up in the Jewish community of Kairouan, in modern-day Tunisia, claiming to be descended from the Tribe of Dan. He related fascinating accounts of the life and customs of this majority of the Jewish people that had disappeared. Of particular interest was the knowledge he claimed to have of early religious law and the archaic Hebrew that he spoke. From this p

Kumbaya (Kum-Ba-Yah): Did Black Slaves Sing Songs In Hebrew?

Historical References, The Evidence
Many of us have heard and even sang Kumbaya at some point in our lives, but most people aren't aware of the origin of the song or the meaning of the words. When I was in elementary school, we were told that it meant "come by here", and that's what myself and many others have believed for a long time. Did you know that that Kumbaya (Kum-ba-yah) is a Hebrew sentence? Did you know that it was sang in Gullah, which is a Hebrew word? The History of Kumbaya (Kum-Ba-Yah) According to history, the song was first recorded in the early 1920s. However, it is believed to have originated with Southern Slaves in the Gullah language. Gullah is a language that was spoken by slaves that inhabited North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Kumbaya Lyrics Kumb...
Tacitus: Hebrews Looked Like Ethiopians and Egyptians

Tacitus: Hebrews Looked Like Ethiopians and Egyptians

Historical References, The Evidence
One argument European Christians like to make is that Hebrews look "Middle Eastern" or "olive", but we know from the Bible that's not True. For those that don't believe scripture is important, or that they can make it up as they go in order to feel more comfortable, Tacitus is one more nail in the coffin. "A few authorities hold that in the reign of Isis the surplus population of Egypt was evacuated to neighboring lands under the leadership of Hierosolymus and Judas. Many assure us that the Jews are descended from those Ethiopians who were driven by fear and hatred to emigrate from their home country when Cepheus was king. There are some who say that a motley collection of landless Assyrians occupied a part of Egypt, and then built cities of their own, inhabiting the lan...
