Was everyone on the planet black before Noah’s flood? The book of Enoch seems to indicate that the world before Noah’s flood was a much darker place, as far as melanin is concerned. While The Book of Enoch is not considered canon (official scripture), it was very important to the ancient Hebrews. In fact, it was so important, that they hid it among the Dead Sea scrolls at Qumran. Let’s start by looking at the story concerning Noah’s birth:

“After a time, my son Mathusala took a wife for his son Lamech. She became pregnant by him, and brought forth a child, the flesh of which was as white as snow, and red as a rose; the hair of whose head was white like wool, and long; and whose eyes were beautiful. When he opened them, he illuminated all the house, like the sun; the whole house abounded with light. And when he was taken from the hand of the midwife, opening also his mouth, he spoke to the Lord of righteousness. Then Lamech his father was afraid of him; and flying away came to his own father Mathusala, and said, I have begotten a son, unlike to other children. He is not human; but, resembling the offspring of the angels of heaven, is of a different nature from ours, being altogether unlike to us.” – Book of Enoch 105:1-3

The Colored Elephant In The Room

These three verses in The Book of Enoch provide a glimpse into what was going on around the world at the time of Noah’s birth. In order to make this easier, we’re going to break down the information into two sections:

What The Text Says

  1. Noah was born with white skin.
  2. Noah did not look like the other humans.
  3. Lamech believed Noah was the son of an angel.
  4. Angels were having children on earth.

What The Text Implies

  1. White skin was not common among humans.
  2. The children of the angels (nephilim) were white.

Although the nephilim play a very important role in Noah’s flood, they are beyond the scope and focus of this article. If you are interested in an in depth study on the nephilim and Noah’s flood, please check out my book, As The Days of Noah Were: The Sons of God and The Coming Apocalypse.

If Humans Weren’t White…

What color were they? The text seems to imply that pre-flood humans were people of color. Based on the location of The Garden of Eden, they were most likely brown or dark skinned people. If you still aren’t convinced that pre-flood people were people of color, Lamech’s words, “being altogether unlike to us” proves that everything about Noah was different, including his skin color.

Noah: The Black Albino

Although Noah was described as having “white skin”, we know that not only Europeans have white skin. Black people can also be born with white skin. We refer to these people as albinos. Here are a few pictures of black people with white skin:

Black People With Albinism
Red Haired Albino

As we can clearly see, white babies are not only born to Europeans. In fact, it is a scientific fact that black people can have white children, but white people cannot have a black child. The only way for all of the races to exist on the planet, is if they started dark, and then became lighter over time.

Enoch, Lamech, and Noah were all from the line of Seth (Adam’s third son). If they were people of color, it also indicates that Seth was a man of color, which would also make Adam a man of color.

Adam: The First Man of Color

For starters, Genesis 2:7 tells us that Adam was created from the dust of the earth. In the Mesopotamian region, where the garden was located, all of the soil is colored. However, I’ll readily admit that it isn’t a very strong argument. The strongest argument for Adam being black are the three verses above.

  • If Noah was white and the other humans were not, they were likely brown or dark skinned.
  • If the humans were brown or dark skinned, it would’ve been passed down from Adam.
  • If brown or dark skin was passed down from Adam, it would mean that Adam was most likely brown or dark skinned.

These are reasonable conclusions based solely on the text presented. That brings us to the most controversial conclusion to where the evidence leads:

The Image of God

We are constantly bombarded with images of a white God or a white Christ, but why is that? If race doesn’t matter and God is just a spirit without race, why is he always depicted as white and not black or Arab or even Asian?

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” – Genesis 1:26-27

If God made man in his image, and after his likeness, what would that man look like? He would look like God. Many people try to downplay the appearance of God by saying that God is a spirit, which means he doesn’t have a body or color, but that’s not scriptural. That is personal belief and opinion:

  • Adam had arms and legs.
  • Adam had hair.
  • Adam had a face.
  • Adam had a skin color.

Adam was a walking, talking, self portrait of the creator. This brings us back to The Book of Enoch. If the people in Noah’s time were not white, and all of the people on earth were black, what color was Adam? If Adam was created in the image of God, and Adam was a man of color, what does that say about God?

  • OnlyCaring

    1 Corinthians 4:6 Do not go beyond what is written.And that’s exactly what’s being done in this article.We all ” wonder ” about things and it can be negative in this regards.If this was important God would of told us but because he wanted us all equal in all aspects worshipping him he left it out possibly to stop one from being puffed up against another.

    • Black History In The Bible

      You’re part of the problem. Why would God need to tell black people they were black? The Bible says it on MULTIPLE occasions, they lived in Africa, and mixed with Hamites. The only people that have a problem with Hebrews being black are racist white “Christians”. We all know that none of you say a word when the next Jesus movie comes out and he’s falsely portrayed by a white actor… but say he’s black, then suddenly you wanna speak up. Get lost if you don’t like the truth. Simple as that.

  • Sherrod Campbell

    All originated from Africa we were split up at the tower of Babel, with Nimrod as the ruler In the land of Cush, Cush means BLACK, Cush is modern-day Ethiopia. So the first people had dark skin because they came from this region of the earth, this cannot be debated. All of these people hard dark skin Egyptians, who adopted Moses who favored them, before Moses was Abraham, Issac, Jacob, and Joesph. Joesph’s brothers could not recognize him because Joesph looked Egyptian dark skin or brown skin. The people in this region of Bethlehem were Hebrew with very dark or brown skin. There was no choice (The Sun) look at the people in Bethlehem today 90% of them are dark or brown. They could pass for a so-called black person, guess what Jesus looked like this…not tan or olive not resembling white at all… not blue-eyed, they were brown or black with nappy hair, hair like wool some Hebrews had dark features others brown. I not going to say, a black man or African man, because they are brown or black… black or brown is their color, not their nationality they are Hebrew. A brown of light-skinned American usually is called a black person until they speak, and then you learn they are Spanish this has occurred. But facts are facts they were descendants from the land of Cush (Ethiopia) they had those strong features in their DNA Nuff said!

  • Jesus hair and head was white like wool, white as snow, feet like bronze etc…eyes fire, tongue sword, face sun ok…clearly there is some symbolism here..plus texture is not in this.
    Putting that aside, if God said let’s make man in our image, wouldn’t that be white? Angels were white, God is probably white, white like a white petson on earth? No I don’t think so, I think more white like bright white being a sprit.
    But that doesn’t mean God made Adam and Eve white, I’m sure in his intelligence he figured in the sun situation and probably gave them some color, does that mean black? No it doesn’t.
    I do think Jesus looked middle eastern or similar, as far as Adam and Eve it’s all guess work.
    Clearly God wanted variety, our nationalities look very different, not just color. And albinos can be from any ethnicity..not just blacks.

    • Black History In The Bible

      Elisabeth, thanks for the reply, but now lets address the contradictory nature of your response and why it DOES NOT line up with scripture.

      1. Every time you see the word “like”, it’s a simile… a comparison to something. The exception is the skin color. It says his skin “was the color of burned bronze”. Everything else is a comparison, but the skin color is a declarative statement. There’s no metaphor or simile to be had from Daniel or John’s description.

      2. We know that burned bronze is not olive, tan, or any other color except the color of black people.

      3. When you say you believe Christ looked “Middle Eastern”, are you admitting that you are INTENTIONALLY denying the Bible’s description of Christ having burned bronze skin?

      Burned Bronze Looks Like Black People - Not
      This Is What Burned Bronze Looks Like – Not “Middle Eastern” or “Olive”

      4. The fact is the people weren’t all colors in Enoch. It clearly says the humans did not have white skin, and all the people with white skin were children of the angels. I didn’t make that up. That’s what the book of Enoch has said for its entire existence.

      5. Adam and Eve lived in a region where black skin is beneficial and white skin leads to a high death rate from Melanoma. This is a fact that I address in my study, “Dying To Be Israel: The High Cost of Living In The Holy Land Without Melanin“. Based on the description of where the Garden of Eden was located, the only possible conclusion is that Eden refers to either all of Africa or a part of Africa.

      6. Not all angels were described as white in the Bible. Read Isaiah and Ezekiel. The angels around God’s throne (Seraphim / Cherubim) were described as having burned bronze skin just like Christ. But the angels WERE NOT created in God’s image… mankind was. So if some angels are white, but were not created in God’s image… and Enoch describes humans as NOT white… then God is not white. Once again, we know this to be fact because Daniel’s pre birth description of Christ matches John’s post resurrection description of Christ… both of a man with burned bronze skin.

      So how is it you claim to believe the Bible, while still actively denying the words of scripture? People that preach a false olive or modern “Middle Eastern” looking Christ have no grasp on actual historical events. The Middle East was named that by Europeans in the 1800s in order to separate it’s association from Africa. Europeans also dug the Suez Canal to physically separate Israel from Egypt, which is in Africa.

      I would love for you to explain why your personal belief does not match the Bible, and why you continue to call yourself a Bible believer if you openly reject it’s description of Christ. You either believe the Bible or you don’t. There’s not middle ground.

      These People Are Also

      These are “Middle Eastern” people as well… but the white controlled media only presents a biased view of what they want the world to believe Christ, Hebrews, and Arabs in the past looked like. It’s simply not true. That entire area of the world was full of black people until European invasion and mixing.

      • Elisabeth

        I don’t deny scripture, I deny your interpretation of it…in some. Bronze feet is for the symbology of this whole vision, white hair/wisdom/purity, his powerful tongue and beautiful powerful voice, his feet of bronze are also symbolic….different interpretations on what. But to me why explain a black mans appear this wsy of thsts all it is, just a description??
        This is also Jesus’s resurrected body and his face was like the sun, bright…should we say then he must have a yellow face/skin? Or head AND hairs white like wool mean he has a white head and just mean he’s white?
        I don’t believe this was a description about a mans fkesh, but who he is and what it means.
        Now do I think Adam and Eve could have been dark? I think it’s possible, but that eithervway they carried all the different appearances/races to create….because God has no color, but we need color to go with where we live.
        The Middle East has different colors, light to dark, yet even the darkest middle easterner rarely are confused with a “black man”. We all have our own look, features.
        By the time Jesus came around I do believe he was not a black man, but Olive or tan, not a black man.
        Not a white man but not black either.
        There are some that say black came with sin, that sounds crazy to me and terrible. Some say white are the bad ones…also terrible. We are this way because it was part of Gods plan. I’m not alone in my beliefs either. It’s not as if I made it up. Many historians also believe similar to what I believe and partly why I believe it. I think the Bible can easily be used to manipulate its interpretation to what you want it to believe.
        I try to let the Holy Spirit be my guide. If I feel something is off, I don’t believe it. I choose what I believe based off proof, and the feeling the Holy Spirit gives me to discern. As much as I could care less of my lords appearance, I don’t feel hecwas a black man in the flesh, but shouldn’t matter what flesh he took on, because I don’t think his spirit has a color.
        We were made to adapt to our surroundings…. our skin color was part of the plan, not being the same, yet we are all in his image.

        • Black History In The Bible

          If you don’t believe factual interpretation why are you here? A child can read and see the truth. You just want to deny that Christ was born in a country that borders Africa, was hidden in Africa for YEARS, and is described in two places as having BURNED BRONZE skin… his feet were not bronze nor is there any symbology. Christ had actual feet and the scripture says COLOR… there is no simile or metaphor to be had.

          Let’s also address the typical European dodge of “this was his resurrected body”. He’s described exactly the same in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 10:6)… before he was even born in human flesh… wanna try explaining why he’s black before birth?

          You keep bringing up his head and his hairs being white. So what? That has nothing to do with his face or anything else. Also, the sun isn’t yellow. Please read a science book. That’s embarrassing. Back to his head and hairs being white. Have you never seen a black man with white hair? Here’s a pic.

          As you can see, a burned bronze skinned man can have a head and hair of white. We both know you’ll find another excuse to deny the truth, but let’s keep going.

          You claim you don’t believe it’s a description of a man’s flesh… so let’s see if it’s consistent with flesh descriptions in the Bible. Job said his skin was black. Jeremiah described all Hebrews as black and said they had faces “blacker than coal”. Moses was mistaken for an Egyptian, which we know were black because they painted themselves black. Paul was mistaken as an Egyptian as well, which confirms Tacitus’ (Roman historian) claim that people were debating whether or not Hebrews descended from Ethiopia or Egypt… black descendants of Ham. When Jacob died, all of Israel were mistaken for Egyptians.

          Do you deny that Israel shares a border with Africa?
          Do you deny that Israel started off mixing with black descendants of Ham?
          Do you deny that Hebrews were mistaken for descendants of Ham on multiple occasions?
          Do you deny that Judah had 5 sons by 2 black descendants of Ham?

          You don’t have to answer because we KNOW that Europeans deny the truth because deep down you’re racist and hate black people. If I’d said Jesus was brown, you wouldn’t have an issue. If I was posting false images of white Jesus you’d be silent like you are when knowingly false movies and TV shows depict him that way. The fact is you’re ONLY here because I said he was black. That’s why you’re a racist and you can deny it all you want. If him being black bothers you, you aren’t his anyway. If you weren’t a racist you wouldn’t even have a word to say. You’d read it and move on like you do when you see the false white idol hanging in the very church you probably sit in every Sun-day.

          If I’m wrong, prove it by showing me your arguments against those that depict him as white. Take a screenshot of a debate right now where you insist that he was not white. I’ll wait… but I know you aren’t doing that because you don’t care about truth… you only care that you maintain the belief that he is not black.

          Facts are facts… and Jesus was born into a line that started with 5 children that came out of 2 black women. He was taken to Africa to hide among people with burned bronze skin because he had burned bronze skin. Feel free to deny anything you want. If you don’t agree with my conclusions, get lost because there’s no reason for you to be here. This site is about truth regardless of how you feel about it. Truth will continue to be taught.

          We’re not here to awaken you. I’m not called to awaken you. I’m called to awaken Israel to who we truly are. God’s chosen. Believe it or don’t… not my concern, but those that fail to speak truth and those that fail to worship him in all truth are no followers of his anyway.

          Let’s summarize.

          1. Israel started by mixing with black people.
          2. Judah’s only sons were with 2 black women.
          3. Hebrews were mistaken for black descendants of Ham multiple times.
          4. The Bible describes them as having black skin, faces blacker than coal, being black but beautiful, and burned bronze.
          5. Jesus was hidden in Africa to escape Herod.
          6. Judah fled into Africa to escape European persecution.
          7. All slave trade maps show “Kingdom of Judah” as “the slave coast”.
          8. All descendants of the Transatlantic Slave Trade are black.

          You’re in denial. Believe whatever you want because you certainly choose not to believe the truth.

          “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” – John 8:44

  • Michael

    There was a Nigerian couple that gave birth to a white baby with blonde hair and she wasn't albino plus there was a set of twins born one was black and one was white they were born from a white woman and now they are adults and this happens because 95% of our DNA Matches plus there was a white woman that gave birth to a Asian baby and a white baby and there was a Jamaican woman that gave birth to a white female baby but the baby doesn't look mixed and it doesn't matter what color we are because we are the same color inside

    • Black History In The Bible

      Black people give birth to white babies all the time. However, I noticed that you fail to provide any shred of proof of a white woman giving birth to a black baby. Feel free to share a link to the PROOF that it’s possible because it has NEVER happened in the history of earth without a white woman having sex with a black man first.

  • Alex

    First, i would like to address that I am human, and being human, i am subject to error. With that being said I am inclined to share truth as God has allowed me to discern it.

    I notice that people have difficulty worshipping and believing in God without humanizing the All mighty.

    From the beginning (Genesis) we notice the initial humanization of the Most High:

    “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”
    – Genesis 2:2-3

    Prophet Jesus (peace and blessings be upon him, not curses) nullified this clear theological error:

    “In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”
    -john 5:17

    Jesus did 2 things in this verse, he cleared the debate regarding the Sabbath, and He detached God from human attributes.

    King David said something similar in the book of Psalms, revealed to him by the Highest:

    “The guardian of Israel never slumber nor sleeps” – Psalm 121:4

    I would also like to add that the Quran offers an even more clear correction:
    “And We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no weariness” – Quran 50:38

    I would also like to add that the Quran offers over 200 plus corrections to biblical errors.

    The Quran corrects matters such as, “seeing God” or man being made in the “image” of God.

    • Black History In The Bible

      The other more likely scenario is that the Quran offers over 200 errors to add confusion to God’s word… aka the Bible.

      • Alex

        As a reader of both scriptures,
        The Quran is radically more clear than the bible, far less confusing, and more coherent and United in theme.

        I am curious as to what evidence do you have to support your claim? Have you studied the Quran? Or are you just rooted in the Bible to the point that you won’t study the Quran?

        • Black History In The Bible

          I’ve studied both and I don’t find the Bible confusing at all. I find it very coherent. I’ve read many books including the Quran. I don’t put any stock in it because it was delivered to a man by an angel. The Bible has a clear warning about angels bringing another gospel.

          “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” – Galatians 1:8

          • Alex

            The bible has a clearer warning about idolatry, it resonates louder, and is mentioned far more often than the warning you just mentioned.

            I believe there is a verse in revelations that refutes your Galatians verse:

            “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
            -revelations 14:6-7

            Literally states that an angel would deliver a GOSPEL. Certainly fits the description, this is exactly what is preached in Quran. Besides we didn’t have a problem when Gabriel visited Mary… but visit the seed of Ishmael and now there is a problem.

          • Black History In The Bible

            That doesn’t refute anything. You clearly half read the Galations verse. It clearly states if the angels is preaching ANOTHER gospel other than the one taught by Christ. Not hard to understand at all, so the angel in Revelation can’t possibly be the same angel that brought Islam since Islam denies that Christ is the savior of all mankind and the son of God… a different gospel.

          • Alex

            The revelations verse refutes the Galatians verse for the simple fact that the revelations verse doesn’t mention GOSPEL of Christ. You choose not to see it, and you choose not to see Mohammed’s coming prophesied in the Bible, and you choose not to see Islam in the Bible, just like you chose not to see the 2 creation stories in the Bible. And for the record, you have to believe in Jesus to be Muslim and you have to believe he is the Messiah to be Muslim

          • Black History In The Bible

            No you’re just uneducated on the Bible because you’re not reading it in its entirety for understanding, but cherry picking without context based on your own preconceived notions. If you had any clue what the words meant you wouldn’t be here trying to argue from an uneducated position. The angel had the SAME gospel preached in the Bible… “the gospel of the kingdom” not a different Gospel. That’s why the book starts off saying “the Gospel of Jesus Christ”. Christ was prophesied in the Bible. Christ being the savior and son of God is the gospel of the kingdom. You’d know that if you read the WHOLE New Testament, but its clear you haven’t bother.

            As Far As The Creation

            There is only 1 creation story. Again, lack of understanding on your part. Nothing is created in Genesis chapter 2. It starts by saying God planted a garden… planting isn’t a second creation. If you read instead of letting people tell you what stuff is, then you’ll understand. Also, if you know a shred about Hebrew, you’d know that the events in chapter 2 are linked to the 6th day of creation in Genesis 1. It’s a detailed account of that day.

            No creation happens on that day EXCEPT humans. Anyone saying it’s a second creation is ignorant of even the basic things. If it’s a second creation story, please by all means tell me what was CREATED and not planted. In order for something to be planted, it had to already have been created. But we’ll wait on you to point out anything other than humans and animals (created on day 6).

            As Far As Muhammad

            The Bible didn’t prophesy the coming of a pedophile. If you don’t believe Christ is the son of God… then the Quran is a false gospel spoken of just like Mormonism… who also teach that the same verses you use refers to Joseph Smith. Same crap David Koresh used in Waco. Always leads to false teaching and death.

            As Far As This Argument

            You’re not the first to bring these simple things to me. It’s child’s play that has been brought up over and over… and proven wrong over and over again. Usually by some small minded, Biblically uneducated person, that thinks I’m only aware of the Bible. I’ve read far and wide and your false teaching is small potatoes. Your tactic of cherry picking verses doesn’t work when it’s against someone that actually knows the Bible, the Quran, Greek Mythology, The Book of The Dead, and more. Pick your poison.

            If you wanna teach the Quran, go teach it on your own site or whatever site you want to go to. I won’t be pushing any false books left to mankind by angels. And… to further my point on Muhammad…

            Narrated Jundub bin Sufyan:

            Once Allah’s Apostle became sick and could not offer his night prayer (Tahajjud) for two or three nights. Then a lady (the wife of Abu Lahab) came and said, “O Muhammad! I think that your Satan has forsaken you, for I have not seen him with you for two or three nights!” On that Allah revealed: ‘By the fore-noon, and by the night when it darkens, your Lord (O Muhammad) has neither forsaken you, nor hated you.’ (93.1-3) (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 6, Book 60, Number 475)

            “Waraqa was dumbfounded at this, and said, ‘If Gabriel has actually placed his feet upon the earth, he has done so for the best of people thereupon. And he never came down for anyone except a prophet. For he is the companion of all the prophets and messengers, the one whom God sends down to them. I believe what you tell me of him. Send for ‘Abd Allah’s son, so that I may question him, hear what he says and talk to him. I am afraid it may be someone other than Gabriel, for certain devils imitate him and by so doing can mislead and corrupt some men. This can result in a man becoming confused and even crazy whereas before he had been of sound mind.’” (Ibn Kathir, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad (Al-Sira al-Nabawiyya), Volume I, translated by professor Trevor Le Gassick, reviewed by Dr. Ahmed Fareed [Garnet Publishing Limited, 8 Southern Court, south Street Reading RG1 4QS, UK; The Center for Muslim Contribution to Civilization, 1998], pp. 296-297; bold italic emphasis ours)

            The Bible is clear about angels appearing to people:

            “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” – 2 Corinthians 11:13-14

            Feel free to prove the Quran wasn’t given by Satan or another angel. We’ll wait.

          • Alex

            And just to clarify further on your 1 Hadith that you posted that referred to Gabriel as Satan.

            That particular Hadith does not coincide with the Quran:

            “Satan has no authority over those who believe and rely on their Lord.”
            – Quran 16:99

            Most likely that Hadith probably derived from a Jewish or Christian person at the time who sought to Interpolate the religion out of disdain for Mohammed (PBUH). Cuz they hated him ND still do.

            So are you quick to say I cherry pick. When you do it to an even more severe degree. And I don’t cherry pick, I cross reference verses.

            Like how I cross referenced these verses:

            Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
            Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads

            And what is the seal of God? It is the mark that is received on the forehead who frequently prostrates to their Lord. They use an interesting term , “seal” and in Islam, Mohammed (PBUH) is the “seal” of the prophets. Notice how the term “servents” of God is used?

          • Black History In The Bible

            I see you’re using the typical tactic of ask a question, then run to another subject when challenged.

            I noticed that you INTENTIONALLY dodged my question about your false assumption about the second creation. Still waiting on you to tell me exactly what God created in the second account as you claim.

            But let me go ahead and bust your bubble again. You literally just proved my previous statement about cherry picking the Bible out of context without knowing a bit of anything about what you’re referencing. Anyone that has read the entire Bible knows that the seal in Revelation is a specific mark of protection from God based in the Old Testament.

            There are exactly three times in scripture where the mark of God is used and all three times are for protection.

            Example #1 – God’s Mark To Protect Cain

            “And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.” – Genesis 4:15

            Example #2 – God’s Mark To Protect Loyal Hebrews

            “And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.” – Ezekiel 9:4-6

            Example #3 – God’s Mark To Protect Believers In Revelation

            “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” – Revelation 7:3

            So we have three examples in the Bible and not one of them has anything to do with frequent prostration. Stop letting people mislead and twist God’s word in order to push a doctrine that clearly doesn’t line up with scripture. I don’t half study scripture, and I guarantee you I’ve heard every argument, rebuttal, and false teaching you plan to throw at me.

            I’ll wait for you to try your tactic of avoid the question and run to the next topic.

          • Alex

            Let us pause for a moment before we continue:

            I did respond to your inquiry about the 2nd creation that I mentioned. But I followed it up with another comment and that second comment has shown up first, which you just responded to.

            So we will wait for my initial comment to go through and I will allow you to reply.

          • Black History In The Bible

            I don’t see any response to my question: What specifically was created in the “2nd Creation” you claim happened. Feel free to respond again because there is nothing there concerning that.

  • Darrell Lucas

    I hope not to get anyone mad … I come in love … if we accept the book of enoch as part of the story and removed quite possibly because of the color description of Noah … then we have to give just as much weight to other books removed … most importantly the book of Adam and Eve … it fills in all the gaps to the story …. after the eviction from eden Adam continues to communicate with God and a whole lot goes down … so please people of color don’t get mad I’m just repeating the text …. and you can find this just as easy as the book of enoch …on his knees crying to God Adam asked why have you darkened me … and God replied because of our covenant I have darkened the flesh that covers you and not your soul, else surly you’d be dead … along with all the other stuff they talk about this was part of his exile from eden … read the book it goes into great detail … Adam trying all he can asking God to let him back in … but God is point blank you are in a time out because you can’t follow the rules and your grounded five and a half days … one day is 1000 years and your kids are part of the punishment. .. so what color was Adam and Eve while in the garden after being made in his image … it only says you were of the light … but without question man was not dark while in the garden …now here is where I get mean …the dark line of Adam only had to follow the rules … they were still to suffer for 5,500 years … but no … the first thing Adams son has to do is go out and kill his own dark brother from jelousy …. eve keeps screwing up … and the rest of the dark race that was not dark while in eden mess the world up so bad … stealing, killing and sodomizing that God has to flood the whole place to clean it up and save the only white boy in the bunch .. Noah … from there comes the rest of the story … taking out the removed books and making the jews off white or off black is what I would think anyone should want because no race should be proud of the old testement as it currently stands … incest, rape, sodimizing …. guys make the characters any color you want … just don’t make them white … im just proud my white irish people have nothing to do with all that nasty stuff … Christ can be oriental for all we know and may have been in India hiding from herod till he was 30 cuz the new testament reads like some real Buddha stuff when Christ is recited. .. so let’s all get past the color game and worry about the real problems … the fallen angels or the Giants of old that made it thru the flood .. our true overlords

    • Black History In The Bible

      You’re wrong for several reasons.

      1. The Hebrews themselves hid the Book of Enoch along with their scriptures, but they didn’t hide the books of Adam and Eve. Probably because the books of Adam and Eve weren’t even written until centuries later.

      2. If it wasn’t about color Europeans wouldn’t have spent 700 years + Billions of dollars trying to fake the race of Christ… and putting up images of some false white savior in the church. They’ve done nothing but spit in God’s face for 700 years by lying about his nation.

      3. Race is important… black people have been treated horrible by Europeans based on nothing but race, greed, and envy that we are chosen Israel.

      So let’s get passed telling people to stop teaching the truth because the real problem is deception… which is apparently something Europeans love as long as that deception comes in the form of a fake white messianic idol that they can cling to.

      Here’s a scenario…

      White man shows claiming to be Christ showing REAL and CONVINCING signs and miracles… how many people that know Christ is black will be deceived? ZERO

      White man shows claiming to be Christ showing REAL and CONVINCING signs and miracles… how many people that think Christ is white will be deceived? The Majority

      That’s why it’s called a deception because it’s convincing… not because it’s easy to spot… and Europeans have made sure to deceive people into thinking a white savior is coming to whisk them away to safety… not so. The falling away comes FIRST.

  • Earl

    Finally….interpretations of the Bible that I can understand. Too many preachers have different interpretations of the same verses. Keep up the good work….

  • John Jacobs

    Outstanding work brother Fortson! I am amazed (but not surprised) at some of the comments alleging that there is no way that the Hebrews of the bible were black. All someone has to do is simply pick up their bible, put down their preconceived notions and prejudices, and read from cover to cover as one whole document. I think people of today attempt to disregard the old testament (OT), which is a bad idea, because the new testament (NT) unlocks the mysteries in the OT. For example; after the his resurrection, Jesus was on the road to Emmaus with two disciples and he provided them with a breakdown of the things concerning himself “in the OT”. “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself” (Luke 24:27). I don’t know why Jesus being black it is such a hard pill for modern Christianity to swallow, but a man that hid out among black Egyptians from the his youth till adulthood, was described as having appendages like burnt bronze, and had hair the texture of wool. People like to brush some the physical descriptions off as metaphorical, however when John the apostle was given the revelation of Jesus Christ he was told to write down everything that he “saw” and “heard”, and you cannot see and hear something that is metaphorical. John actually fell down “as dead” because of the awesome “physical” presence of Jesus in his glory, but I guess that was just an allegory or metaphor as well (sarcasm added).

    I apologize for the long reply, but either the bible is true in its entirety and we need to take the Most High at his word, or the additives of men are true and God is a liar. Last time I checked, additives may make things more palatable at the time of ingestion, but in the long run they slowly poison your body. What God has said is enough for me, people NEVER had a problem when Cesare Borgia, oops I meant the modern image of Jesus Christ, was white (especially black folks), but the minute someone says he that he actually most likely resembled John Coffee (“JC” ; ) wink wink) from the movie The Green Mile, then all heck breaks loose. A white Jesus is extremely convenient when one is subjugating the entire planet and bringing it under a pagan Roman religion masquerading as true Christianity.

    Keep preaching bro Fortson!

  • Well I have read all of Lamentations and I see he turned them black because of their sins. The truth is the truth. I can see this site is very predigest against whites so i better leave now while i’m not sinning here and turned black to.I wouldn’t be speaking this way if I felt I was among people of character and goodness but I dont feel this site is a good site to learn from in the fact the narrator is pregidest of whites. Have a nice day and stay in your sneakers.

    • Black History In The Bible

      And yet you haven’t posted a single verse that says God turned anyone black due to sin. Truth is truth. It’s not prejudice to say white people are white an black people are black. You just hate black people because you’re a racist. If this study had been about Arab people, there’s no doubt in my mind that you’d love it.

  • Why is it no one talks about Lamentations 3 and 4? God turned them black because of their sins.They were ruddy in complexion (like the Scottish)and white as snow ,check it out ,you will see but they killed his holy ones and God turned them black plain as that.

    • Black History In The Bible

      Actually, I do talk about it, so don’t say “nobody”. It’s covered in several places on the site. Also going through Lamentations and Jeremiah in the series “The Daughter of My People”

      http://www.blackhistoryinthebible.com/the-awakening/the-daughter-of-my-people-black-hebrews-in-america-part-1/

      Also, don’t add to God’s word. Nothing says he turned them black due to sin. That’s British-Israelism nonsense. People were EXCLUSIVELY turned white as a punishment. Gehazi and Miriam are two examples of that. Both turned white out of anger. One made God mad and the other made a prophet mad. Both cases ended in white skin.

      The Hebrews turned black because of long duration in the sun due to slavery. It’s a fact that black people get darker in the sun. Since all Hebrews had African blood, they get darker to naturally protect themselves from the sun.

  • Eddie

    Fascinating!

    I am only responding because I believe what you are doing is very well done and would like to show appreciation and encouragement.

    The truth,free of bias and lies, is in and of itself, not harmful to anyone.According to what we currently know/believe, Black Africans are the source, genetically and by location, of what we know today as humanity. This is evident not only by scripture but also current scientific inquiry.

    Implications should not be feared by anyone but welcomed by all. The truth will set us all free.

    If that’s not enough Morgan Freeman was way more convincing as God than George Burns. Sounds like a joke but think about it.

  • Nicole Rodriguez

    Obviously the first people were BLACK cmon now my white skin cant be in the California sun without getting sunburned, now think about a bunch of whiteys walking through the middle eastern deserts hahaha yea right lmao that gives me a hilarious mental image by the way! Not to mention the fact that the biblical Hebrews or Israelites, whatever you want to call them, were singing and dancing every time they were happy praising YAH all throughout the scriptures! Now, we all know that white people ain’t the ones gifted in song and dance! Also in Song of Solomon in the bible he specifically says, “I am black but comely” I mean shouldn’t that put it to rest? Personally I am thrilled with the truth of the matter, and also that YAHUSHUA(“jesus”) was almost certainly a black man! What a BURN for all the oppressive racists! Another thing I was thinking about, black people, a lot of times, call eachother brother and sister, and that’s exactly what they were referring to themselves in biblical times! One more thing, YAHUAH always says a thing like, “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who persecute you”, I mean it doesn’t take a genius to realize who basically have been the most oppressed people in the world, even in America, look how much the white man hates on his fellow black human brother.. and we know from history it hasn’t always been that way for people of color, I mean they come from Kings and Queens, it ain’t the white people who come from royalty just take a history lesson and search it up for yourselves you’ll find out the truth anybody will who searches. Praise YAH who willingly gives the truth to anybody who asks and seeks!

  • Angeloid

    First of all I’m not promoting or saying that adam or eve were either white or black.
    But I’d like you to see the whole thing from a different side:
    Enoch was surprised about Noah being white with white hair and looking like an angel means noah was an albino for me – but he does not necessarily have to be a black albino.
    There are white albinos who also don’t look like normal whites – with no melanin, white skin and white hair that really looks like you’d imagine an angel.
    (google them: famous russian albino nastya kumarova, famous asian albino Connie Chiu – or whoever: stephen tompson, amal sofi – every race has albinos that look extraordinarily and are really white like snow and bright like an angel.)
    Second of all the description of god: “His hair were white like white wool, like snow” – the wool here doesn’t refer to the structure of the hair – this correlation with the hair of blacks isn’t that old anyway but “white like wool” is in itself a metapher describing the color. Everyone knew sheep and they all had sheep. The description is a typical old color description “white like wool, like milk” – the latter just reinforces it. the description white like wool does only refer to the color of the hair not to the structure.
    My point is: it all doesn’t tell us anything about “the race” of god or adam and we should just wait till we die to find out the truth about it all instead of acting as if god himself told us the truth about the world – about the history of the races. I’ll be neutral and excited and can’t wait to get told about the truth then.

    • Black History In The Bible

      Do you share this same view with people that share pics of a white Jesus? How about white movie companies that cast white Egyptians and white Hebrews, even though history shows that they were absolutely not white?

      The book of Enoch is 100% clear that he was unlike any other human on earth. Furthermore, we know they were black because black people ONLY come from black people… but black people can have every color on earth from white to dark black. No other race can do that and that’s scientific fact.

  • Joshua

    The image of God is of both male and female God is the father aka man the son aka child and the holy spirit aka the wife and the spirit of unity of family. All people have this in common and are of this image and are partaking in this image. Not a single person is the image of God but a family. As always test what I say against scripture.

    • Black History In The Bible

      The Holy Spirit is NEVER presented or referred to as a female. He is specifically referred to as a he, so your example is not Biblical unless you want to try to make it a gay marriage. That is both blasphemy and false teaching.

    • Christine

      Good point. Also, noteworthy, is – in the book of Enoch, “Wisdom” is described as “she” several times. Also, the waters beneath the earth and above the earth are described as separate – male and female.

  • It doesn’t make sense that there are 2 physical descriptions of god. God is everywhere and everything, and therefor does not take the shape of a human. It wasn’t until Jesus Christ was born, was there a human form of God. So there’s god, who is ever present, there’s Jesus who is god in human form who died for our sins, and when Jesus was baptized by John god gave us the holy spirit to communicate with god.

    • Black History In The Bible

      Then your position is that you’re negating every reference to God physical form in the Old Testament.

      In Genesis 18 he appears to Abraham as a man and eats with him.

      God placed his hand over a cave and allowed Moses to see his back.

      There are actually dozens of physical descriptions of God throughout the Old Testament.

      If God made Adam in his image, what does that tell you? It tells us that God has an image.

      Even if someone tries to claim Adam changed after the fall, it still doesn’t explain how Adam got hands, feet, eyes, etc. because of the fall. God does have a form, and it’s similar to humans.

  • Staylor

    Hi,
    I am Caucasian. I have always believed Christ would have been dark skinned, along with everyone else. However I have been told by blacks that white people will not go to heaven. Cause we’re damned. I’ve always believed people are the color they due to melonin. Sorry if I spelled that wrong. Can you explain where whites fall into play in all this?

    • Black History In The Bible

      Many misguided black people have been duped into believing white people are all damned, but that’s simply not true.

      Read my “Unmasking The Gentiles” series on this site. Part 4 specifically addresses your question about salvation.

      In short, everyone can be saved. It’s not based on how much melanin or lack thereof you have.

          There’s no such thing as evolution, which is EXACTLY what the Neanderthal DNA lie is used to promote. Either we are created beings, or we’ve evolved, it can’t be both ways.

          • Black History In The Bible

            I don’t thank he was referring to evolution. He’s talking about the DNA study that points to Europeans mixing with something else on the planet. I personally haven’t touched the subject for many reasons, but according to the book of Enoch, the children of the angels had white skin.

            I don’t believe in evolution either, but the fact that Europeans have mixed DNA is pretty interesting to me. It could be Nephilim DNA. There are some that believer neanderthals were actually nephilim. Not my official position, but the belief exists.

          • Raef

            I agree with the nephilim DNA being from the fallen. However, there is no race of people on this plane that doesn’t have the D RH- antigen in their bloodlines, not one. It covers 14% of the population and every ethnicity has at least one person with the genetic mutation. However, “Neanderthal” is exclusively used to promote the lies of evolution. There no way to use the term and not promote the ideology. I find the D antigen anomaly absolutely fascinating, but it is NOT the same concept as cave dwelling, barely humanoid life forms crawling out of the bowels of the earth. As far as people believing they were one and the same, I’m not surprised, thete are peole who believe a car is curling a globe right now🤐

    Resembling the offspring of the angels of heaven” can easily be metaphorical, not necessarily meaning that “Angels were having children on earth”.

    • Black History In The Bible

      It’s not metaphorical. It’s a literal description that is given all over the world. The Bible mentions it all throughout Genesis 6, Numbers 13, 1 Samuel 17, 2 Peter, Jude, etc.

  • P Beckford

    If Adam was made in the image of God then he would have resembled God. Revelation 1:14 says that the son of God had hair like wool and verse 15 says that his feet were like brass burned in a furnace i. e. his skin was dark. It seems to me that God is dark skinnsd.

  • Ryder

    You may have covered this elsewhere but I am new to your site. Does this information about black biblical ancestry change your mind about Christianity and Hebrew Israelite doctrine?

    • Black History In The Bible

      Thanks for writing.

      No, it does not change my mind about Christianity at all. There is a huge difference between the teachings in the Bible and the teachings of men.

      As far as the Hebrew Israelites are concerned, I think they are misguided in many of their teachings. They omit anything that contradicts their doctrine, and also embrace other doctrines that cannot be validated by scripture. Their obsession with Edomites being white doesn’t fit the Biblical text. Also, their teaching the Jews somehow became Gentiles is also against scripture. Their belief that Christ did not die for Gentiles is outright false.

      None of this information changes my beliefs about either subject.

  • So the lid is finally lifted as the reader of the Book of Enoch is told that some of the angels of heaven have succumbed to carnal sin and taken wives from among mortal women. From this unholy union have come flesh-and-blood offspring, giant in stature, who, it must be presumed, match the description of the child born to

  • A question why wasn’t Noah if he were actually a son of the Fallen Angel destroyed in the flood, since their destruction was one of the reasons God sent the flood. Could it be a name that the translators of the Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls used for whatever purpose suited them.
