The Evidence

King David Had Reddish Brown Skin

King David Had Reddish Brown Skin

Art & Statues, 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

Art & Statues, 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.

Art & Statues, 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.

1747 Map of Judah In Africa

The Evidence
This map was created in 1747 by English cartographer Emmanuel Bowen as part of a collection. He was a renowned map maker with a reputation for being accurate.

The reason Judah fled into Africa was to escape invading armies. Their enslavement by people in slave ships was a fulfillment of the following prophecy: "Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and...
