King Menelik I, The Solomonic Dynasty, and The Ark of The Covenant

King Menelik I, The Solomonic Dynasty, and The Ark of The Covenant

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] The story of King Menelik I and Ethiopia's Solomonic Dynasty begins in the Bible with the Queen of Sheba coming to visit King Solomon. The Bible itself doesn't come right out and say it, but there are several verses that make it clear that the Queen of Sheba was beyond impressed with Solomon's wisdom and his wealth. Solomon was a famous king. Solomon was wise beyond the queen's expectation. Solomon was rich beyond the stories the queen had heard. Solomon already had 1,000 other women that we know of. There is no reason to…

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today? – Part 2

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today? – Part 2

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] In Part 1 we looked at the fact that Esau is described as reddish-brown (ruddy) and hairy. We also looked at the fact that he took wives from the line of Ishmael, which were a mix of Hebrew and Egyptian, and known to be dark skinned people. At least up to this point in scripture, we have to acknowledge that Edomites were black people. But the main issue is whether or not Edom became white and if some white people alive today are descendants of Edom. To further explore this journey, let's look at…

Ishmael: Abraham’s Half Egyptian Son With Hagar

Ishmael: Abraham’s Half Egyptian Son With Hagar

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] We are use to hearing the story of Abraham and Isaac, but we often forget about Abraham's oldest son Ishmael. Throughout the Bible, the Ishmaelites (Ishmeelites) play an important role in many of the events that take place. Let's start by taking  a look at the circumstances surrounding the birth of Ishmael. Different People Named Ishmael In Scripture In order to keep everything in context, we must first acknowledge that there are several different people named Ishmael in scripture, but two stand out over the others: Ishmael: son of Abraham (Genesis 28:9) Ishmael: son…

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today?

Finding Edom: Who Are The Edomites Today?

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Esau was the father of the Edomites, his sons and grandsons were the Dukes of Edom, but where did they go and are they really today's white people as some groups believe? Ever since I heard the belief that the Edomites are today's white people, I've had plenty of questions for many reasons. In an effort to find answers to those questions, I've decided to share that journey each step of the way. Important: I use the word "black" as an all inclusive description of people with dark skin. Those skin tones range from…

Kedar: The “Dark Skinned” Grandson of Abraham

Kedar: The “Dark Skinned” Grandson of Abraham

[table id=6 /] [table id=1 /] Kedar was Abraham's grandson, and the second son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13). He also founded a city that is mentioned quite a few times in scripture. Twelve times to be exact. It is not a major focal point of the Bible, but we do learn some pretty interesting things about the city. They lived in black tents (Psalms 120:5 and Song of Solomon 1:5). The were archers like Ishmael (Isaiah 21:17). They were ruled by princes (Ezekiel 27:21). Its alluded to above, but I feel like it's important to point out that the descendants…
