Perhaps most famous for it’s pyramids, Egypt is probably the second most important country mentioned in the Bible, with Israel being the first. With the exception of the pre-flood world, the majority of Genesis revolves around Egypt. All links open in a new tab or window.
One of the alternative names the Bible uses for the geographic area is “the land of Ham”. This reference is made three times in scripture.
If white Bible scholars choose to teach that Ham was Noah’s black son, it is dishonest to then say that “the land of Ham” was not full of black descendants of Ham, which included Mizraim (Egypt). Because the Bible formerly recognizes Egypt as descendants of Ham, those the claim it’s origin as European have to be classified as false teachers.
The Biblical Origin of Egypt
The name Mizraim means “tribulation”, which is important because it is translated differently throughout the Bible. It is important to understand this because it is foundational to Bible prophecy.
- Sometimes it’s translated as the proper noun “Mizraim”.
- Sometimes it’s translated as the proper noun “Egypt”.
- Sometimes it’s translated as the improper noun “tribulation”.
According to the Bible, Egypt was also known as “the land of Ham”, which presents an interesting scenario. Egypt is located in Africa, and is recognized as a black civilization by the vast majority of people. The Bible tells us that Egypt was named after Ham’s son Mizraim.
- The majority of scholars teach that Ham is the origin of black people.
- If Ham was black, then it makes sense that his sons were black too.

The Myth of A White Egypt
Some of the same white teachers that teach that Ham was black, will then contradict themselves by saying that Egyptians weren’t black, Canaanites weren’t black, and Libyans weren’t black, even though all of them are brothers to Cush, whom they acknowledge as black. To a rational person, the red flags of false teaching should instantly be raised.
- Egyptians depicted themselves as black people.
- There’s no evidence of white Egyptians ever existing.
- Egypt was always recognized as a black nation until white people realized that Hebrews were described as looking like Egyptians.
Hebrews Were Mistaken For Descendants of Ham
What makes many European Christians uncomfortable is that Hebrews get mistaken for Hamites from Genesis through Acts. We know what Egyptians looked like without an ounce of speculation because Egyptians painted themselves as black people. Those that deny this are simply denying the truth.
If we look at the three examples above, we can clearly see that Egyptians were black people. Now that we know what Egyptians looked like, let’s look at several scriptures that mention Hebrews being mistaken for Egyptians.
Joseph – Unrecognizable As A Hebrew
Because he was sold into slavery, Joseph lived most of his life among the Egyptians. If his skin color was different or stood out, his brothers would’ve recognized him easily. He was old, spoke Egyptian, and had the same skin color as Egyptians, which is why they didn’t recognize him.
“And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food. And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.” – Genesis 42:7-8
The Nation of Israel – Indistinguishable From Egyptians
“And all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father’s house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land of Goshen. And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it was a very great company. And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond Jordan, and there they mourned with a great and very sore lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days. And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called Abelmizraim, which is beyond Jordan.” – Genesis 50:8-11

Egypt As A Refuge In Scripture
When Abraham and Sarah sought refuge in Egypt, Pharaoh took a liking to Sarah, and took her as his wife. After God appeared to Pharaoh in a dream, Sarah was restored to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-18), and they left Egypt with riches.
“And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.” – Matthew 2:13
“And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;” – Leviticus 24:10
Joseph and Asenath
“And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king ofEgypt, and took Pharaoh‘s daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.” – 1 Kings 3:1
