There is no bigger threat to white supremacy than the notion that Jesus of Nazareth was a black man. White supremacy can’t exist in a world where the savior of all mankind is the same hue as the people they’ve enslaved, murdered, beat, raped, and oppressed for 400 years. The very thought of bowing and worshiping a black man, Messiah or not, is anathema to Eurocentric Christianity… but how far would they go to keep the world from acknowledging the truth about the greatest event in the history of mankind?

A Little Bit of Background

There are several things in the Bible that never made sense to me from a basic reading of scripture. The unwillingness of the world to repent and turn to God, even after all of the destruction laid out in the book of Revelation, seems defiant beyond comprehension. But the more time I spent associating with white conservative Christians, the more I realized that race is more of an issue than they would like us to believe. As soon I started looking into the historical, cultural, and racial origins of the Hebrews, the hatred began to manifest.

  • I’ve received multiple messages telling me not to go down this path of research.
  • I’ve received multiple messages claiming that researching this subject “isn’t of God.”
  • I’ve receive d multiple messages claiming that God would never choose black people as his nation.
  • I’ve been accused of being a racist who only says Jesus is black so I can “feel special”.

I’ve been sharing my nephilim research online since the late 90s and the more up to date stuff since 2009. Conservative fringe Christians loved my research until around 2015. Suddenly the same research methods that they praised for my book As The Days of Noah Were: The Sons of God and The Coming Apocalypse, were hated now that it led to a conclusion they didn’t want to accept… Christ and the Hebrews were black. Here are a few other quick facts that many people don’t know:

  • This site was originally started specifically to share my research into the lineage of Ham and any other information I discovered about the presence of black people in the Bible.
  • It wasn’t until my research into Hamites began crossing into Hebrews that I started to look closer at the claims that Hebrews were black.
  • It took me a few months of study before I took an official stance on the ethnicity of true Israel.

From 2016 – present many people have asked, “what difference does it make?” That’s a valid question that many people have, and while it shouldn’t make a difference, it definitely does. After giving that question a lot of thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that it will matter more than we may know in the not too distant future. But let’s not put the cart in front of the horse. While many of us are convinced of a black Israel and black Christ, there are many that aren’t, so let’s start with our kinsman redeemer.

Our Kinsman Redeemer

There will always be a back and forth on the subject no matter how much evidence gets dropped in the lap of most believers of all colors…any time this subject comes up, there is always someone out there that doesn’t want people who believe in the Bible seeking out certain subjects found within the Bible itself. Some of the subjects I’ve heard some Christians ask others to ignore include but aren’t limited to:

People would rather believe made up fairy tales about the ethnicity and race of Christ than to seek out what the word of God says. Christ was a human man in every sense of the word (addressing his humanity not his deity).  All people alive and dead can relate to him in some way, but black people in America seem to have the most in common with him, now more than ever before.

  1. He was born under oppressive conditions brought on by a European (Roman) controlled government (John 11:47-48).
  2. He was falsely accused of a crime he didn’t commit and was illegally arrested based on false testimony (Luke 23:14).
  3. He faced a rigged jury  that had already condemned him to the world, similar to what Conservative media outlets do to black victims of police brutality in America (Luke 23:17-21).
  4. He was beaten by the Roman “police” for no other reason than they wanted to beat him, and not a single one of those officers was convicted for breaking the law (John 19:1-4).
  5. He challenged the European controlled oppressive government and was publicly executed just like MLK, Malcom X, and many others after him (John 19:12).

If the point of coming as a man was to understand our plight, then I’m thoroughly convinced that he can relate to what’s happening today worldwide, because he lived it. All of the above doesn’t make him a black man, but what if we could prove it beyond a shadow that a black man is exactly what he was?

By The Mouth of Two or Three…

First and foremost, I’m a Bible believer. This isn’t a secret. So as a Bible believer, I believe that the following verse is true, regardless of our personal beliefs, traditions, or opinions:

“But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.” – Matthew 18:16

One of the biggest arguments against this subject is that the Bible doesn’t describe Christ, the Hebrews, or reference skin color. None of these statements have any truth to them at all. We’re going to break down the internal (Biblical) and external (Historical) evidence that Jesus was indeed a black man that died for the salvation of mankind. It is this evidence, and possibly more to come, that I believe will ultimately lead to the final battle between a world based around white supremacy and their unwillingness to submit to the black messiah.

Witness #1 – Daniel The Prophet

Daniel is one of my favorite prophets and there is so much wisdom, history, and prophecy hidden in his short book, that I find myself reading it the most. The following verse has had my attention for a long time because I use to believe it may have been the angel Gabriel visiting Daniel, but the deeper I look, the more I believe it may have been Christ acting in the role of “restrainer”:

“Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.” – Daniel 10:5-6

We’ll come right back to these verses.

Witness #2 – John The Prophet

Most of us are very aware of John’s description of Christ because John specifically names Christ as the subject. Here’s what John had to say about the appearance of Christ:

“And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.” – Revelation 1:13-15

We’ll come right back to these verses as well.

Two Eyewitness Accounts

Now let’s look at these verses side by side and I’ll bold the sections that each description has in common with the other one. Then we’ll dig into the Hebrew and Greek words and their meanings.

“Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.” – Daniel 10:5-6

“And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.” – Revelation 1:13-15

There are too many similarities in their descriptions for it to be coincidence. The only possible explanations are that John actually saw the same “man” that Daniel saw or John just ripped off Daniel outright.

  1. Daniel and John mention a “man”.
  2. Daniel and John mention the golden girdle.
  3. Daniel and John describe his eyes as fire.
  4. Daniel and John describe his voice in a similar manner.
  5. Daniel and John both describe his skin color as bronze.*

If John ripped off Daniel, then John can’t be trusted. But if John’s words are true, then he is confirming Daniel’s description of a bronze skinned Messiah. Before we address some of the other points of what makes these two descriptions so important, let’s address the issue of which word was really used…

Bronze vs. Brass

There is a huge difference between bronze and brass. Here are a couple of pictures to give you a visual idea of just how huge the difference is.

Polished Brass
Polished Bronze
Brass Statue
Bronze Statue

Now that we’re clear on the differences in color between bronze (brown) and brass (yellowish), it’s time to check out the Hebrew and Greek words to see which ones the actual witnesses are comparing his skin color to.

  • Daniel: nechosheth (Strong’s #5178) – Copper, Bronze
  • John: chalkolibanon (Strong’s #5474) – orichalcum, a fine metal, or frankincense of a yellow color.*

While the Strong’s is 100% clear on Daniel’s usage of the word, when we read the exhaustive definitions of the Greek word that John used, we see it linked to all of the following metals as well:

  • Bronze
  • Copper
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Gold + Silver (alloy)
  • Copper + Silver (alloy)

When we run into a problem like this, one of the things I like to do is check out some of the other Bible versions to see how the scholars involved translated the word. Here are some examples of how John’s word is translated:

  • NIV: Bronze
  • NLT: Bronze
  • ESV: Bronze
  • NASB: Bronze
  • NET Bible: Bronze
  • KJV 2000: Bronze

To be fair there are other versions that translate the word as brass, but nowhere near as many as those that translate it as bronze. With so many different possibilities as to what John meant, lets use some common sense. John was trying to describe what he saw in a way we can relate to:

  • There are people that have bronze colored skin.
  • There are ZERO people with brass colored skin.

Until we see a brass colored person walking around in real life, it’s hard to understand why many people refuse to acknowledge what the Bible is telling us. Here is a picture of actual bronze feet. Just by looking at them we can tell that bronze is the same color as many of the humans living on this planet.

Bronze Baby Feet Casts

British-Israelism has no choice but to deny the above and their black supporters that teach Christianity is the white man’s religion, don’t study enough to even know to look into it. If ignorance is bliss, then these two groups are definitely rolling in it… and it is this ignorance that tends to lead to the following argument.

But This Was Post Resurrection Christ

One of the biggest arguments against using John’s description in Revelation is that it’s “after the resurrection”. When this argument is made, its a sign of cognitive dissonance and not wanting to wake up and acknowledge the truth:

  • Christ didn’t suddenly die and com back to life as a bronze skinned man after the resurrection.
  • He hadn’t yet been crucified when Daniel saw him, which means he was bronze skinned long before Revelation.

And that last point brings us to the elephant in the room. Daniel described a “man” or someone similar to a man, that was most likely Christ, and that man had bronze skin. The fact that the description appears BEFORE the birth of Christ leads us to two possible conclusions:

  1. Christ chose to appear with bronze skin even prior to his birth, death, and resurrection.
  2. There is a very high ranked bronze skinned angel in heaven that looks similar to post resurrection Christ.

In the entire history of humanity, no person has ever been able to decide what race they’d be born as, except Christ. He was able to choose his lineage, family, mother, skin color, and more. Every single one of his choices was a conscious decision that led to him walking this planet as a black man for thirty-ish years.

  • Christ was the FIRST unapologetically black man to ever exist.

Ezekiel also described multiple winged beings with bronze colored skin as well (Ezekiel 1:7). While they aren’t evidence of Christ’s skin color, it is another prophet mentioning bronze skin in heaven. This brings us to the 3rd witness. The genealogy through which Christ would come.

Witness #3 – Genealogy

Perhaps some of the biggest evidence comes in the form of genealogy. Just so we don’t get side tracked, I’m going to summarize these connections. Feel free to click any of the links on this page for a more in depth study on each person, place, etc.

Scholars of all races often agree that Ham was the originator of the black races in Africa. That being the case, it would mean that ALL of Ham’s children were black and so were their descendants. According to the Bible, Ham was the father of the following nations to name just a few:

Any time we see any Hebrews mixing with any people from any of the above tribes, then we know that their children were definitely not European or light skinned. Here’s a list of key people in the line of Judah that mixed with Hamite women:

  • Judah – had five kids with two different Canaanite women.
  • David – stole Bathsheba the Canaanite from Uriah the Hittite (resulted in the birth of Solomon).*
  • Solomon – had a fling with the Queen of Sheba (Cushites).

*Bathsheba was from the Canaanite tribe called the Gilonites. They are named as one of the tribes conquered by Moses and Joshua in Canaan. The Hittites were also known as “the sons of Heth”. Heth was a descendant of Canaan as well.

One of the most ironic things about this subject is that Eurocentric Christianity will readily attribute black Africans and Black Arabs to the lineage of Ham, but at the same time ignore the fact that mixing with Hamites results in black offspring. In order to really understand how embedded Hamite DNA is into the Hebrew line, we need to look at their interactions in Africa.

Journey Into Africa

Please don’t message me with the unenlightened and unoriginal comment that the word “Africa” didn’t exist back then. If you know the location I’m referring to then it doesn’t matter whether or not that was the word they used to describe the location. Now that I got that out of the way, let’s talk about the Hebrews and their relationship with Africa.

  • Journey #1: Abraham and Sarah went to Africa and Abraham gave pharaoh his wife.
  • Journey #2: Joseph lived in Africa for most of his life.
  • Journey #3: Jacob moved his entire family to Africa.
  • Journey #4: Hebrews spent over 400 years living in Africa.
  • Journey #5: Israel is located on the border of Egypt.
  • Journey #6: Christ hid in Africa for at least 4 years of his life.*

Israel always defaulted to Africa during times of famine and war. If the Bible was a Eurocentric book, it would be reasonable to assume that they’d run to Europe to escape persecution at least once, but they don’t. Even though African locations are named over and over again, Eurocentric Christianity will not acknowledge or accept that these were black people… IN AFRICA!!!

We could dwell on the above points all day, but it’s the last point that is going to bring us to the fourth witness…

God Couldn't Have Done It Without Africa: Earth's Final Great Awakening

Witness #4 – The Most High

Let’s look at the the birth of Christ from God’s perspective. There are people that want to kill the Messiah, and you can only send him to the east or to the west to hide:

  • East: The people get lighter the further you go into Asia and Europe.
  • West: The people get darker as you head into Africa.

In order to really understand why the above is so important, we need to also look at the map below. Israel shares a border with Africa. In fact, the term “Middle East” wasn’t even widely used until the mid 1800s. Before that it was known as North Eastern Africa or Arabia.

Israel is that red sliver on the map. While I don’t pretend to know the mind of God, I feel confident in saying that God wouldn’t tell a white family to take a white baby and go hide among black people in Africa. That would only make them more obvious and easier to find. You don’t hide a needle in a haystack… you hide a needle in a stack of needles to make it virtually impossible to find. It’s the small details throughout the Bible that add up to one large truth. So which scenario more likely?

  • God hid a white skinned baby among bronze skinned people.
  • God hid a brass skinned baby among bronze skinned people.
  • God hid a bronze skinned baby among bronze skinned people.

The choice is obvious, but most of all it’s consistent with all of scripture.

The Consistency of It All

The thing I love about the Bible is that the more I study it, the more I find that it has a beautiful and intricate consistency. It’s subtle and yet still completely obvious the long you study. So let’s look at quite a few consistencies concerning ethnicity.

  1. Abraham’s Journey: He was called out of the Cushite (descendants of Ham) empire of Babel, lived among the Canaanites (descendants of Ham), lived among the Egyptians and had a child by his Egyptian concubine (Hagar), and bought land from the sons of Heth (descendants of Ham).
  2. Joseph: Lived among Egyptians (descendants of Ham) and married an Egyptian woman. His sons Ephraim and Manasseh (tribes of Israel) were half African, and Jacob gave them the birthright. It’s also important to note that Joseph’s brothers didn’t recognize any difference between him and the Egyptians when they finally found him.
  3. The 12 Sons of Jacob: Jacob had 12 sons and 1 daughter, and they all lived among Canaanites (descendants of Ham).
  4. Judah: Lived in Canaan and had 5 sons by 2 different Canaanite (descendants of Ham) women. His half Canaanite son Pharez is the one through whom David would eventually be born.
  5. The First 70 Hebrews: During the famine, the entire family was reunited with Joseph, which prompts a move into Egypt (Africa). The remained in Africa marrying and having kids, which means they would’ve had to find wives among the people where they lived… in Africa (descendants of Ham).
  6. The Death of Jacob: Upon the death of Jacob, the Hebrews traveled into Canaan to bury Jacob in he cave he bought from the Hittites (sons of Heth). The Canaanites saw the group and wrongfully mistook them for Egyptians.
  7. Moses: He was found by an African woman, adopted by an African woman, raised as the son of an African woman, trained in African wisdom, and was mistaken for an African when he helped the Midianite girls.
  8. The Exodus: After leaving Africa, we find several interesting stories that appear in Moses’ writings. There’s a story of a Hebrew woman married to an Egyptian man. There’s also a story of Moses marrying an Ethiopian (Cushite descendant of Ham) woman, and God turning Miriam white for having a problem with it.
  9. Joseph, Mary, and Christ: All sent to hide in Africa for at least 4 years until the death of Herod, which means that Christ spent part of his childhood growing up with African children. His parents were probably friends with lots of Africans as well (assumption).
  10. Paul: After being arrested Paul was mistaken for an Egyptian that murdered a bunch of people. Tacitus the Roman historian also describes all of the Hebrews during Paul’s time as possibly being descendants of Egyptians or Ethiopians. Nobody has ever mistook a European for an Egyptian or an Ethiopian.

Notice that not once does the Bible mention the Hebrew descendants of Shem mixing with the Gentile (European) descendants of Japheth… because it never happens in scripture.

  • The Bible is consistent in it’s description of the Hebrews as resembling people from Africa.
  • The Bible is consistent about the Hebrews’ constant presence in Africa.
  • The Hebrews in the Bible consistently mixed with descendants of Ham.

The Bible is completely consistent in it’s description of Hebrews, descriptions of Christ, and Hebrew interaction in Africa. Eurocentric Christianity often seeks to avoid or explain away verses like these in order to push their agenda.

This Moment of Irony

When we think of the Bible we don’t often think of irony and sarcasm, but there’s a lot of it in. Here is an example of God being sarcastic:

“Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come. Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.” – Isaiah 41:21-23

This is pure God inspired sarcasm with a lot of mocking. God was trolling people long before trolling was a thing. God definitely knows none of the above is even remotely possible. One of the biggest pieces of circumstantial evidence (in my opinion) of a black Christ is irony. What would be more ironic than if an entire culture, religion, and belief system built on white supremacy turned out to be based in the worship of a black man? If you think I’m stretching it, then ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many white conservative Christians would bow and worship a black man?
  • How many would rather justify going to war with the black Messiah by claiming he’s the devil?

When Christ is revealed and he turns out to be black, it’ll set the world on fire (literally and figuratively). Some will repent and remain believers, but many white Christians will walk away from the faith, but there will also be many that will turn their anger toward God’s people. The revelation of a black Messiah is the ultimate blow to white supremacy and will not be tolerated. In my opinion, I believe that is what may be the driving force behind the event in Psalms (covered in Part 2).

I want to take this opportunity to go on a very important momentary detour.

The Savior of All Mankind

While I do believe the Hebrews were and are black, and Christ is black, I do not believe salvation is based on race at all. Unfortunately, people mostly of European background tend to instantly make all kinds of false accusations whenever the words “black” and “Christ” appear in the same sentence:

  • It’s Divisive: If TRUTH is divisive it is only divisive to people that want to be divided simply because Christ is black… but even more to the point, Christ came to “cause division” (Luke 12:51). His words not mine.
  • It’s Racist: Pointing out the factual ethnicity of the Messiah does not equate to racism, but lying and depicting him falsely as a white man is the very definition of racism. It’s an attempt to strip his personally chosen heritage and insert their own onto the creator.
  • Salvation Isn’t Based On Color: All I’m saying is that he’s black. Seeing the word “black” associated with Christ suddenly makes a lot of white Christians feel excluded…  but ironically they believe a white Christ is somehow all inclusive. I understand that salvation isn’t based on color, nor do I teach that it is.
  • His Race Doesn’t Matter: Anyone saying this is lying. We know they’re lying because they don’t stop and say that when they see a picture of white Christ. If there is even a discussion about him being black they want to let everyone know they they’re against it and don’t want to know the truth, nor do they want others to teach the truth. All truth matters… if it’s not OK to call Christ a white female lesbian because his gender and sexual orientation are important, then it’s not OK to depict him as a white man when we know he was not.
  • He Was Brown Not Black: They only say this because they don’t want Christ to be black. They certainly won’t make that statement when white people post pictures of white Jesus, but they are very vocal about it during any discussion concerning Christ being black. They will accept a huge white lie over a little bit of black truth any day of the week (I keep saying it because it’s important).

The reason I stress the above is because I believe EVERYONE can be saved. I don’t like to cherry pick parts of the Bible I agree with while disregarding those that don’t. My Bible says the following:

Old Testament

“And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.” – Isaiah 11:10

New Testament

“Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel…” – Ephesians 3:4-6

Suggested Reading

Witness #5 – The Forbidden Books

Many Christ followers are under the false impression that the King James version of the Bible is “the Bible”, no other versions are reliable, and any book not appearing in canon AFTER 1611 isn’t scripture. It’s a ridiculous and unfounded argument, but I have a suspicion that there may be Eurocentric reasons behind the removal of the two books I’m going to mention, and likely more books than that.

“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48

There’s no real reason that Maccabees shouldn’t appear in scripture. It appears in most Catholic Bibles and gives us clear insight as to what Hanukah is all about. I believe it may be due to the above text pointing out that there was a clear European plot to paint their own images into scripture… and that’s exactly what happened during the Renaissance Period (1300 – 1700). Not only did it happen then, it is still happening now through TV, movies, and modern art. Including these verses in “the Bible” would cause people to start looking at the art, and once they do the little white lie is uncovered layer by layer. This brings us to the next book:

“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

This entire section of text destroys any notion that the first humans were white. The white skin came as a complete shock to Lamech, which causes him to point out that Noah’s white skin didn’t look like any other HUMAN on the planet. In fact, Lamech specifically said “he is not human” and resembled the “offspring of the angels of heaven”.

  • Europeans will not tolerate a book in the Bible that says the offspring of evil angels were white.
  • Europeans will not tolerate a book in the Bible that says no humans on earth before the flood were white.
  • Europeans will not tolerate any belief or religion that does not prop them up as the master race.

I haven’t researched every single book that was removed from scripture, but I suspect that the removal of many of these books may tie to the Psalms 83 conspiracy to hide Israel and make them forget who they are. Over time, these books remained unread or unknown by most people… and so the false image of a white Jesus has been able to endure for and permeate our society for centuries. While Enoch doesn’t directly prove that the Messiah was black, it does indicate that Christ was black. It is the words of John that point us in that direction:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” – John 1:1-3

According to John, the Word (Christ) created all things. If that is true and God made man in his image (Genesis 1:26), and the book of Enoch testifies that white skin was an anomaly… the only conclusion we can draw is that a bronze skinned Christ created bronze skinned humans in his bronze skinned image and likeness. Again, it is only my opinion, but I believe that this is the reason that they don’t want these two books in the same place at the same time. It always points back to the reality of a black savior.

If you’re playing a massive game of “Hide The Hebrews”, you certainly don’t want paintings like those in the next section in the mainstream consciousness, you don’t want a book like Enoch in the mainstream consciousness, and you certainly don’t want Maccabees drawing attention to the conspiracy to repaint Biblical people and angels as white. We know that white supremacy is a myth birthed from a sense of inferiority. And nothing will make some Europeans feel more inferior than knowing that Christ chose to be a black man, which means he rejected being a white man.

Witness #6 – The Paintings

For those that are skeptical of the Bible in General, pointing to the Bible over and over again as evidence doesn’t mean much. They may give some credit to the genealogies, but overall if they don’t believe the book, they want evidence outside of the book. For me, the strongest non Biblical evidence resides in what was painted PRIOR to the European Renaissance before they took it upon themselves to repaint history and turn Hebrews, God, and the angels white.

Are There Black People Mentioned In The Bible - Jesus
The Oldest Known Depiction of Christ

Some of us have seen it and some haven’t, but this is the oldest known depiction of Christ and the disciples. It can be seen in the Coptic Museum located in Cairo, Egypt… and it’s not the only older painting to show Christ and the disciples as black men. There’s also the following painting of him washing the feet of the disciples:

Christ Washing The Disciple’s Feet

Interestingly, there is a pre Renaissance Period painting of Moses, which shows bronze skinned Hebrews crossing the Red Sea, but what’s even more subtle are the bronze skinned arms reaching out from heaven:

These paintings are hard evidence that prior to the Renaissance Period people KNEW the Hebrews were black people, they KNEW the disciples and Christ were black people, and even depicted God with outstretched black arms. There was no speculation about it. Descriptions and depictions outside of the Bible remain consistent with what we find inside of the Bible.

Witness #7 – The Historian

Tacitus – The Roman Historian

One of the biggest arguments from white Christians when it comes to the paintings is that “people depict Christ in a way that relates to them.” It’s a fair and accurate statement, but it doesn’t make it the right or truthful thing to do. Christ had a color and so did all other Hebrews. Tacitus’ (58 AD – 120 AD) testimony is a huge blow for those that do not believe Christ was black because:

  • Tacitus was a European (Roman) that testifies to a black Israel.
  • Tacitus lived during the lifetime of Paul and within a couple decades of Christ.

Here is what Tacitus had to say when describing the Hebrews during the first century AD:

“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.” – Tacitus, Histories 5.2 (110 A.D.)

We know that Egyptians are black Africans and so are Ethiopians. I’ve never met a single person that has mistaken a European for an Egyptian or Ethiopian. The reason the words of Tacitus are so important is because mainstream history quotes him as a valid reliable source. He is also of a different nationality, which kills any rebuttal that he may be attempting to change the ethnicity of the Hebrews to make them something he can relate to.

How Many Witnesses Do We Really Need?

Even though I’ve provided seven different types of witnesses that point to a black Christ, we can break all of this evidence down into two important witnesses:

  • The Word (all evidence found within scripture)
  • The World (all evidence found outside of scripture)

It’s rare that both the word and the world agree, but that’s exactly what we find when it comes to what Christ looked like before Europeans decided to repaint history during the Renaissance and into the modern age.

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.” – Romans 3:3-4

Common sense tells us that there is no way that Hebrews spent all that time living among descendants of Ham and constantly producing half African children only to end up with this guy:

This guy didn’t hide in Africa, doesn’t have bronze skin, and in no way represents any description of Christ other than the false teaching of Eurocentric Christian mythology. But if Satan show’s up as a white man claiming to be Christ and showing off miracles, those that don’t know the truth will be deceived… and it will be someone that looks like this guy that will lead Europeans to war against Christ.

When The Glass House Shatters

The reason I went through all of the above evidence is in order to make sure we’re all on the same page as we progress through this study. As more and more people take up this line of research, the harder it becomes to keep people convinced that the people in Israel now are actually Hebrews and that the white depictions of Jesus are accurate. Those that have invested their entire life practicing hate and racism will be devastated when the lie falls apart… and it’s only a matter of time before it falls apart. They will be confused, mad, and ready to fight and kill.

“Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” – Matthew 24:9

Was Christ addressing his disciples as Hebrews or was he addressing them as Christian believers? This matters because if he was addressing them as Hebrews, then that message has racial implications. If he was addressing them as Christian believers, then there will come a time when white Christians will be rounded up in America, and that is something that we just don’t see in scripture.

The Breakdown

Those of us heavily involved in this field of study are very much aware of the hatred that comes along with simply saying Christ is black. I can’t even begin to imagine the repercussions of offering definitive proof to the masses. But whatever they are, they’ll be huge. Eurocentric Christianity will ALWAYS choose a white lie over a black truth (important).

  • We will NEVER see a conservative Christian film company cast a black man as Christ.
  • We will NEVER hear a conservative Christian pastor point out all of the references to black skin in the Bible.
  • We will NEVER hear a conservative Christian pastor preach a black Christ to a white audience.

A war is coming between God, Europe, and all that oppose the Messiah. We’re going to cover this and much more in depth in Part 2.

    Thank you for this article!

    While reading it I caught a typo that you might want to correct:

    “Notice that not once does the Bible mention the Hebrew descendants of Shem mixing with the Gentile (European) descendants of Jacob… because it never happens in scripture.” I know you meant Japhet but other people that read this can become confused about Jacob, also those that oppose you will twist your words.

    Also since you are researching the black presence of the Bible, look into the Ewe(Erverh) people of Ghana and Togo. There is an author named Mawuli from the Ewe that has written books on the same subject you are covering. In one his books he talks about his people having an orally told story called the Notsie Narratives that reads as a line by line account of the Exodus. You might find this info useful if you have not looked him up already.

      Nice catch. I corrected it. Thanks for that and thanks for the info on the Ewe. I’ll definitely look into it.

    Absolutely with you on this topic and God has revealed it to me just recently. I wonder do you have a brief of scriptures etc that prove Yashua was dark skinned? I am trying to put together a brief note so that I can share with others teh basic proof? God be with you.

        • Black History In The Bible

          I provided the scriptures in the article you supposedly read. Why are you asking for scriptures you didn’t bother to read on the page in the first place?

          • Daryn Stockwell

            according to the genealogical record in Genesis 11:10-26, Abraham (the undisputed father of the Hebrew nation Gen 12) is very clearly a direct descendant of Shem
            Do you agree with this or how do you interpret it?

          • Black History In The Bible

            I definitely agree… but if you do some more research Abraham lived in Ur, a city of Babel. Babel was founded by Nimrod who was a Cushite descendant of Ham. Abraham then moved to Canaan, who were also descendants of Ham. From there he went to Egypt, where the people are also descendants of Ham.

            If you continue reading Genesis you’ll see that Abraham, Ishmael, Esau, Judah, Joseph, and many others all married and/or had kids with Hamite women. Then as you go further into scripture, David steals the Canaanite Bathsheba from the Hittie Uriah… both of which are descendants of Ham. David and Bathsheba’s union leads to the birth of Solomon.

            Of course Solomon has the brief situation with the Queen of Sheba… a descendant of Ham. Shem’s line intermixed with Ham’s line constantly. What we don’t see are Shemites mixing with Gentiles (the descendants of Japheth).

          • Daryn

            So the Hebrews were white and through marriage with Egyptians became dark skinned? Is this what you are saying?

          • Black History In The Bible

            If I was saying that I would’ve said that. Try reading what’s written instead of making up stuff and adding to it. My position that Hebrews were and are black is 100% clear across this site.

    Good post about the “true” appearance of the Messiah. However since jesus never was his name, and christ is actually a pagan title, why not calling him the wonderful and glorious Name the Father has given him : Yahush(u)a.
    “Jesus Christ” is a diety (actually two) and is commonly used in relation to that white (Italian) guy most people know.
    By the way, the letter “J” is about 500+ years old. The Greek translators wrongly transliterated Yahush(u)a into iesous first. Iesous is even not a translation. (I suggest to use google translator or an internet Hebrew Keyboard and translate both Yahush(u)a and jesus into Hebrew. You will notice that the translation is not the same. Jesus = * יֵשׁוּעַ * ; Yahush(u)a = * יהושע * .)

      Never fails. Always one person to jump in with semantics. Do you know who I’m referring to? Is God bound by human language?

      If the answer to the first question is yes, then it doesn’t matter. If the answer to the second question is no, then it doesn’t matter.

      Most people, including myself are aware that the letter “J” didn’t exist at the time.

      Did you know that they didn’t use the vowels a, e, i, o, u in Hebrew either? So why are you adding them to the written name of God while trying to “educate” me on the absence of a “J”?
