King David: The Black Hebrew With Ruddy Skin and Red Hair

King David: The Black Hebrew With Ruddy Skin and Red Hair

The Shemites
Was King David the most famous ginger to ever live? Many people believe that he was, and they also use this reasoning to conclude that there is no way that King David could've been a black man born with red hair. However, there is concrete evidence that points to the contrary. The Earliest Roots of Judah Before Israel became a nation, Abraham was called out of Babylon, which was a Cushite Empire. The Cushites were black descendants of Ham. When we are introduced to Abraham, we is already married to Sarah, his half sister. After leaving Ur, Abraham travels into Canaan, which was founded by descendants of Ham. From Canaan, Abraham travels to Egypt, descendants of Ham's son Mizraim. He then leaves Egypt with vasts amounts of wealth and cattle, and heads back toward Canaan. T...
King Solomon: The Hebrew Son of An African Woman

King Solomon: The Hebrew Son of An African Woman

The Shemites
Like it or not, the legendary King Solomon was the son of an African woman. His mother Bathsheba was a Gilonite... which was one of the Canaanite tribes that Judah didn't remove from the land. The Gilonites and the Hittites were among several Canaanite tribes that lived among Judah. For those that are rusty on Biblical lineage, the Hittites were the sons of Heth, which were the sons of Canaan, who was the son of Ham. The Gilonites also descended from Ham as well. If you'd like to read more in depth about Solomon's mother Bathsheba and her Hittite husband Uriah, please check out the following articles: Bathsheba: King Solomon's African Mother Uriah: Bathsheba's African Husband and David's Mighty Man Solomon's lineage is important because it goes a long way in expla...
Paul: The Black Apostle To The Gentiles

Paul: The Black Apostle To The Gentiles

The Shemites
The Bible tells us that Paul was mistaken for an Egyptian descendant of Ham. So why is it that we never see Paul depicted as anything other than a white man? When people say that the Bible doesn't mention race, it means they either haven't looked closely enough (me once), or they don't want to have their eyes opened to the truth. The Ethnicity of Paul Paul was a free born Hebrew that had Roman citizenship. This is important because not every Hebrew in Rome had citizenship status. Many were slaves and second class non citizens. After being arrested, it is during a conversation with the chief captain that we learn quite a bit about Paul: "And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?" -...
Moses: The Black Hebrew Raised As An Egyptian Prince

Moses: The Black Hebrew Raised As An Egyptian Prince

The Shemites
Moses was born in Africa, raised by Africans, trained in African wisdom, and was mistaken for a descendant of Ham... and yet he's still depicted as white in the vast majority of pictures that we see. Unfortunately, this lie has prevailed for centuries. But it's not the fault of the Bible. It's the fault of those of us that choose not to read the Bible close enough to see that we've been lied to. The Lies We've Been Told Hebrews are white. The Bible is the white man's religion. Egyptians weren't black. 70 Europeans went into Africa and 1,000,000 Europeans came out. British and Americans are true Israel. These are blatant lies that have been pushed by Gentiles that have been deceived by the false teachings of British-Israelism. These lies are still pushed i...
Zephaniah The Prophet: Son of A Cushite Man

Zephaniah The Prophet: Son of A Cushite Man

The Shemites
Zephaniah the prophet may have been the son of a Cushite man. We often overlook seemingly boring genealogies in the Bible, but sometimes they can be the most interesting part. One interesting find is located in the first verse of the book of Zephaniah: "The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi, the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah." - Zephaniah 1:1 At first glance there's nothing "special" about the verse, but when we look at the names, we find something odd. The name "Cushi" is an ETHNONYM: Ethnonym: An ethnic name ascribed to a people or group; the proper name by which a people or ethnic group is called or known. - Dictionary.com Ethnonym: An ethnonym (from...
Joshua: Moses’ Mixed Race Successor That Conquered Canaan

Joshua: Moses’ Mixed Race Successor That Conquered Canaan

The Shemites
Joshua was foundational in establishing the kingdom of Israel after the death of Moses. He led the invasion into Canaan, slayed giants, and helped Israel take the land for a possession. However, many people, including myself at one time, know every little about his background. Many of us pick up the Joshua story from his report back to Moses, along with the eleven other spies. "And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so ...
Pharez: The Half African Son of Judah

Pharez: The Half African Son of Judah

The Shemites
It may surprise you to learn that all of Judah's recorded children had African blood, including the chosen son Pharez. Pharez was Judah's son that was conceived with his daughter in law Tamar, a Canaanite woman. "And Tamar his daughter in law bare him Pharez and Zerah. All the sons of Judah were five." - 1 Chronicles 2:4 As we follow the bloodline of Pharez, we learn that it is his line that eventually leads to the births of David and Solomon. "Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab, And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David." - Ruth 4:18-22 The Lineage of Pharez Hezron Hamul
Ephraim: The Half African Son of Joseph

Ephraim: The Half African Son of Joseph

The Shemites
When Joseph was enslaved in Egypt, he eventually rose to power and married an Egyptian woman named Asenath. Two children resulted from this marriage and they were Ephraim and Manasseh. "And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction." - 41:52 During the blessing ceremony, Joseph places them before Jacob, and Jacob adopts both boys as his own children, thus making them "tribes" of Israel. "And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine." - 48:5 During the ceremony, Jacob blesses both boys, but he places Ephraim before Manasseh, even though he was the youngest and Jose...
