This map was created in 1747 by English cartographer Emanuel Bowen as part of a collection. He was a renowned map maker with a reputation for being accurate. Here on his map of Negroland (Africa), he notes “The Kingdom of Juda” as the “The Slave Coast”.

The reason Judah fled into Africa was to escape invading armies. Their enslavement by people in slave ships was a fulfillment of the following prophecy:

Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia: That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!” – Isaiah 18:1-2

"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
