Black History In The Bible

"And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not. Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God." - John 8:45-47

The Black Jews of Timbuktu (Mali)

The Black Jews of Timbuktu (Mali)

Source: Shavei.org (Shavei Israel) There are approximately 1,000 people with alleged Jewish roots in Timbuktu, Mali. They arrived in the 14th century fleeing persecution in Spain, and migrated south to the Timbuktu area, at that time part of the Songhai Empire. Among them was the Kehath (Ka’ti) family, descended from Ismael Jan Kot Al-yahudi of Scheida, Morocco. Sons of this prominent family founded three villages that still exist near Timbuktu—Kirshamba, Haybomo, and Kongougara. In 1492, Askia Muhammed came to power in the previously tolerant region of Timbuktu and decreed that Jews must convert to Islam or leave; Judaism became illegal…

Judaism and Christianity Present In West Africa Before The Transatlantic Slave Trade

Judaism and Christianity Present In West Africa Before The Transatlantic Slave Trade

Source: Blacks Jews : The Religious Challenge or Politics Versus Religion (Cambridge University) - Page 233 "J. Leighton Wilson was a missionary for eighteen years in Africa. In his work Western Africa: its history, condition and prospects (London 1856), he states that in Senegambia, religion was a mixture of paganism, Judaism and Islam and that it is difficult to define the areas of influence of each of the three religions. In northern Guinea paganism and Judaism were closely intertwined and in the south there were more traces of Christianity. He based his conclusions on the existence of some customs which…

The Origins of The Lemba “Black Jews” of Southern Africa: Evidence From P12F2 and Other Y-Chromosome Markers.

The Origins of The Lemba “Black Jews” of Southern Africa: Evidence From P12F2 and Other Y-Chromosome Markers.

Source: National Center for Biotechnology Information The Lemba are a southern African Bantu-speaking population claiming Jewish ancestry. Allele frequencies at four different Y-specific polymorphic loci, as well as extended-haplotype frequencies that included data from several loci, were analyzed in an attempt to establish the genetic affinities and origins of the Lemba. The results suggest that > or = 50% of the Lemba Y chromosomes are Semitic in origin, approximately 40% are Negroid, and the ancestry of the remainder cannot be resolved. These Y-specific genetic findings are consistent with Lemba oral tradition, and analysis of the history of Jewish people and…

Judaism Was The Traditional Religion of Black Slaves

Source: Blacks Jews : The Religious Challenge or Politics Versus Religion (Cambridge University) 1987 - Page 235-236 "The study of customs and rites and the analysis of the semantics of these African tribes have led many of their observers to propose some hypotheses and even to draw some conclusions. Doctor Allen H. Godbey reached the following conclusion: 'These factors have a very specific significance if we consider the presence of Judaism among the American Negroes. Hundreds of thousands of slaves were transported to America from West Africa during the trade which started some 400 years ago. What traces of Judaism…

A Substantial Prehistoric European Ancestry Amongst Ashkenazi Maternal Lineages

A Substantial Prehistoric European Ancestry Amongst Ashkenazi Maternal Lineages

Source: Nature Abstract The origins of Ashkenazi Jews remain highly controversial. Like Judaism, mitochondrial DNA is passed along the maternal line. Its variation in the Ashkenazim is highly distinctive, with four major and numerous minor founders. However, due to their rarity in the general population, these founders have been difficult to trace to a source. Here we show that all four major founders, ~40% of Ashkenazi mtDNA variation, have ancestry in prehistoric Europe, rather than the Near East or Caucasus. Furthermore, most of the remaining minor founders share a similar deep European ancestry. Thus the great majority of Ashkenazi maternal…

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews

Genetic Roots of the Ashkenazi Jews

Source: The Scientist Most Ashkenazi Jews, traditionally believed to have descended from the ancient tribes of Israel, may in fact be maternally descended from prehistoric Europeans. The majority of Ashkenazi Jews are descended from prehistoric European women, according to study published today (October 8) in Nature Communications. While the Jewish religion began in the Near East, and the Ashkenazi Jews were believed to have origins in the early indigenous tribes of this region, new evidence from mitochondrial DNA, which is passed on exclusively from mother to child, suggests that female ancestors of most modern Ashkenazi Jews converted to Judaism in…
