“In Southern Nigeria the natives call Black Jews the strange people on the Emo Yo Quaim. They are called the B’nai Ephraim the sons of Ephraim. They claim that their ancestors came from Mo rocco and this is supported by Godbey who noted that their language is a mixture of Maghrebian Arab, ancient Hebrew and local patois: for example abu meaning father became y aba, umm for mother is close to the Hebrew word. These Emo Yo Quaim Jews live in the ondo district and have a copy of the Torah.”

By 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
