Re: Are There Any Black People Mentioned In The Bible?

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Are there any black people mentioned in the Bible? The answer is yes. However, the Christian site "Got Questions?" got this answer completely wrong (click here to read their original response to this question). Their entire response is uninformed and continues the cycle of denying what scripture actually says. I'm going to quote and highlight everything they got wrong, and then I'll explain why it's wrong.

The Lost Tribes of Israel: The Psalms 83 Conspiracy

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Does the Bible tell us what happened to the "the lost tribes of Israel" or has an entire culture been lost to the pages of history forever?

[table id=1 /] Balaam Prophesies A Third Time 1 And when Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness. 2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him. 3 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: 4 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which…
