This source confirms that the epic variability that existed in the Greco-Roman world. Athena was the “goddess of war”, so for her to be depicted as a black woman in the beginning shows just how much the Greeks admired and exoticized black people. However, both mythology and history attest to the fact that black women and/or women of African and ANE descent have long associated with being warriors and leaders.

Professor Rebecca Kennedy’s commentary serves as a warning regarding Dr. Martin’s Egyptian, so I don’t focus heavily on his linguistics which is why I just have this part of this series highlighted.

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
