|AFROMERICA - A Nation Under One God|
What was the race of Jesus Christ, the Messiah?|
By: Dr. Malachi Z. York
Have archeologist discovered the race of Jesus?
This is a very touchy subject because of the adverse racism that has been instilled in the hearts of many. The educational system has spent much time and effort in racial inferiority and racial superiority, but was it based on facts? Were the results the conclusion of research and confirmation? Well let's see, because the British Broadcasting Channel, known as BBC, has distributed a VHS titled, "Where Archeologist Uncovered Some Astonishing Facts."
However, before we venture down that road, let me first establish that this article is not an attempt at racial superiority. In fact, for the 400 years that African Americans have been kidnapped from their land, taken into slavery, and taught the European, Roman, Gentile version of Christianity, we have accepted without question that Jesus Christ was a Caucasian. His race didn't matter to us.
We loved him for whom he is. We proudly decorated our houses and our churches with the pictures made available to us. We wore the crucifix around our necks proudly even though the sculpture would go out their way to imply that he had straight to wavy, shoulder length hair like Europeans.
We put up no fight or resistance because this was the Son of God, and we didn't know any better because we didn't control the media. We didn't control the publications or the Bibles with pictures that depicted him as a European, and we were deprived of the education that would give us access to doing our own research.
How were we to know that when you look at a group of African Americans called Negroes, and you saw all different types of features, that we were looking at different tribes clustered together sold and distributed throughout the land. We were given English translations of the Bible and watched it change year after year to new versions. So if the BBC with the Discovery Channel has uncovered this new evidence, needless to say, we think everyone should know.
And the way Blacks willfully accepted Jesus Christ when he was White, our White Christian brothers and sisters should equally accept Jesus Christ now that Whites have discovered that in fact, he was a Negro. The video is available through the Discovery Channel E7008, and it's entitled, "Jesus: The Complete Story." It runs for 2 hours and 36 minutes.
Many radical racist Negro groups have yelled that Jesus is Black and the KKK is advocates that Jesus was White. Research to date has yielded that the bodies of Mary of Magdalene, Martha, and Lazarus tombs have been discovered with their names, and a study has shown through DNA, the bone examination, that the people of the village of Magdella, where they lived were in fact Negroes. It doesn't stop there, Acts Chapter 13:1 reads, "Now there was in the church that was in Antioch certain prophets and teachers: as Barnabas and Simon that was called Niger…"
The Greek word being used in this quote means Black-skinned. 'Niger' is from ancient Roman, which became Latin 'Nagra' used to this present day for Negroes as well as Moranos (Moors), meaning a Black person. So we find that Jesus' prophets, teachers, his own disciples, relatives, his associates like Mary of Magdalene, were Negroes. This led archeologists to begin to excavate in Judea, the city of Bethlehem mentioned in Matthew chapter 2 as the place where Jesus was born.
And verse two states saying, "Where is he that is born king of the Jews." The word Jew did not come into existence until 1514 A.D. It is a transliteration for Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, twin brother to Esau, sons of Isaac, son of Abraham, who was Assyrian from Asher Genesis Chapter 10:6-14. Within that line of descendants, you find Asher in verse 11; these were descendants from the sons of Ham, which means burnt black and has been verified to be Sudan today, a Negro Arab country.
And Cush, which the Bible confirms is Ethiopia, is a Negro country today. And these were all one bloodline, one family coming from Adam and Eve through Seth through Enos and on down. It is clear that this was one group of people and they are still in existence today, and trace their family line back through the scriptures.
Then they mention Mizraim, which we know is ancient Egypt. These ancient Nubians were also Negroids. Next, you have Phut, which is ancient carthage, became known as Libya, and was ruled by a Negro pharaoh call Sheshek. These are facts that you can research. Evidence has been uncovered to prove these things beyond a shadow of doubt. And if we step out of the Bible into archeology, the oldest human bones discovered is Kenyapathicus, and that's in the area that we just talked about - Sudan, Kenya, etc.
As you trace the seed down to Noah, something strange happens in the Bible. Genesis 5:32 clearly tells you that Noah was five hundred years old and Noah begat (which means gave birth to) of course through his wife three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Man is only five hundred years old once in a lifetime. That is only for one year and let me set the record straight right here. I read Hebrew, so I am not depending on an English translation for my findings.
In Genesis 7:6, it says Noah was 600 years old when the flood of waters is upon the earth to confirm that they are talking about one year at a time. Why am I making this point? Because the confusers would have you to believe that Shem, Ham, and Japheth born of the same father, Noah and mother Namah, gave birth to three different races of children. And that's not true; they were triplets born in Noah's 500th year of life. And God calls Noah perfect in his generation. Genesis 6:9 reads, "These are the generations of Noah"
The word for generation in Hebrew is hdlwt towldah to-led-aw' or hdlt toldah to-led-aw' and means genealogy or birth from the Hebrew root Yelad. This verse says that Noah's genes had not been mixed, that it came straight down, and God says that he was perfect in his generations. So that was not a racial mixture at that point. It was still one pure holy seed and God noted it trying to protect the seed of the woman from the serpent as mentioned in Genesis 3:15- protecting her bloodline from the venomous blood from the seed of the serpent.
The Hebrew word for 'seed' is Zira, and literally, means seed as an offspring. So the Devil has an offspring and his seed will try to bite the heel of Eve's seed. And God is protecting that Holy seed for a very special purpose. So as we go down from Noah through his sons, we find that Ham's son Canaan received a curse in Gen. 9:25. Which we later find in Leviticus, chapters 13 and 14, was leprosy. But the other sons came under Shem.
So now, you have Shem, Ham, and Japheth (triplets), three Negroes. That takes us to Genesis chapter 10 as mentioned earlier, where we find that the son Japheth had sons, and their sons mixed in and according to verse 5, to produce the Gentiles or Goyim. These are called the people of Javan, Japheth's son. And when you look them up, you get Nwy Yavan yaw-vawn' Javan =" Ionia" or "Greece". So the Greeks according to the Bible are the original Gentiles or nation other than the holy seed or chosen people. This is your first mixture in of a foreign race into the Negro race, and they became known as Gentiles, which also means Heathens.
Genesis 10:6 picks up again, and puts you back in the hands of Ham, Sudan which is Africa; Cush which is Ethiopia, Africa; Mizraim is Egypt, Africa; Phut which is Carthage or Libya, Africa and then Canaan, who was cursed with Leprosy and found not in Africa but over in the Middle East. Numbers 12:9-10 tells you that God's anger at Moses' sister, Miriam (who was a Negro), results in her having the curse of leprosy.
Research into what Hanson's disease is or leprosy will give an insight on what he looked like. The word breaks down into Lep Rosy. Now verse 8 says Cush (which is Ethiopia) begat Nimrod, who all theologians register as a Negro. Remember, this is only going to offend you if you're a racist. Because as I said earlier, before all of these facts were uncovered, before we had access to learning the ancient languages for ourselves and traveling the world to see for ourselves, we as Black folk accepted a Caucasian Christ without question.
Let me go on, this family continues on down through the Bible in an unbroken chain until David violates the law by marrying a Canaanite (Hittite), something strictly forbidden by God. In Genesis 24:3-4, he is being told to marry only in his own kindred. And then in Genesis 24:37-38, they use my father's house. So Abraham was given laws by God not to marry the cursed seed of Canaan who had leprosy because this would damage the perfect genealogy, the perfect bloodline, and the holy seed. But David violated that law and sinned by marrying out of his tribe. Nehemiah 13:27 says, "Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?"
The results of David marrying this Hittite woman, Bathsheba, is the strange description as seen in Song of Solomon chapter 4, where his description changes from a Negro to a Middle Eastern Mulatto, being the Hittites were Caucasians and David, his father, was a Negro. Solomon's description is: 1. thou are fair, your lock of hair is like goat. That means straight and wavy, not like a sheep, which means woolly and nappy. 2. Lips like scarlet that means reddish lips.
Now in 5:10, the description goes on: my beloved is white and ruddy. Verse 14 says his belly is as bright Ivory. As you can see, David committed a sin of marrying amongst the Hittites (Canaanites), which is explained in the book of Ezra Chapter 9:1-2. So a holy seed was infected and could no longer travel down through Solomon.
Solomon set up Jerusalem, but Solomon had an older brother named Adonijah (1 Kings 1:5), by David through a Negroid wife, Haggith and this Adonijah was denied his birthright and put in exile and set up the kingdom of Judea to preserve the holy seed, the tribe of Judah. Eventually, Solomon and his band forced the tribes that fell under Judah which were Dina, Asher, Dan, Benjamin, and Issachar, to migrate further down to Yemen up into Ethiopia and spread northward back into their original lands in Africa. Some of the tribal members stayed behind and set up Nazareth, Magdella, Galilee, to name a few of the lands, that to this day still have Negroes that have always been there. You can travel to the lands and see them yourselves.
Jesus was born of the tribe of Judah. Judah was and still are Negroes. Jesus said to his disciples that he was seeking the lost sheep of the House of Israel. The lost sheep, not the whole house of Israel, but those that were sent astray. In John 1:11, Jesus said he came to my own, but his own received him not. In Matthew 10:5-6, he told the disciples not to go into the way of the Gentiles. He would not heal a Canaanite woman in Matthew 15:22-24.
Negroes today, know this! You are not Gentiles; you are the lost sheep of the house of Israel. You are from a holy bloodline that has been scattered all over the world. Your hair is like that of a sheep or a lamb. And in Matthew 25:32, Jesus said he separates the sheep from the goat. In Matthew 24:9, Jesus also said, you will be hated by all nations for my sake. Everybody seems to hate the Negro. Jesus said we are the salt of the Earth but we have lost our savour in Matthew 5:13. He said they will chase you out of the Synagogues, and they did in Matthew 10:17 and Mark 13:9. So our traditional Judaic religion of keeping the laws was replaced by a Roman Paulian version of Hellenism and we replaced our synagogues with the new word 'church.'
In Revelation 2:9 and 3:9, he said he knows the blasphemy of those calling themselves Jews (Judah) and are not. So there are those impersonating Judaism who are Europeans by descent. He also says, but there are many of us that do believe on him, and for them he gives the power to become the sons of God in John 1:12. And through him and his blood, and our genealogy we are made heirs to the kingdom of heaven in Romans 8:17. And we shall gather all nations, tongues, and kindreds, as it says in Revelation 7:9. So the gathering of the other people is on the first begotten of the dead, the lost tribe of Judah, the Negro.
Why do I say Judah is Negro? Because the bible uses the word Niger in Acts 13:1 for black. Jesus had a brother named Simon. Matthew 13:55 says, "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?" Verse 55 is asking about Jesus and it mentions one of his brothers being named Simon, who is called Niger in the Book of Acts 13:1.
There is no question throughout the bible that the tribes of Judah were Negroes. Even Jeremiah (Jeremiah 14:2) "Judah mourneth and the gates thereof languish; they are black until the ground and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up." The word for ground in Hebrew is Ura 'erets eh'-rets, and it means earth, as in the rich, black soil of the earth. As opposed to the hmda 'adamah ad-aw-maw' for ground, which is reddish, ruddy or edom.
Although many people may still believe that Jesus Christ looks like a Caucasian, the Bible describes him as a Negro, having brass burnt skin, woolly "lambs" hair, that's African features. The Book of Revelation 1:14-15 gives a description of Jesus, "His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters."
This description is no doubt speaking of Jesus, the son of Mary. Notice, Jesus is described as having hair like wool. Many people say "white like wool." This is talking about his hair texture. Also, we know for a fact that Jesus was crucified at the age of 36, and would not have white hair. So it meant wool for the texture of his hair, not the color. This is an afro.
Jesus is also described as having fiery eyes and feet (skin) of burned brass. If you know anything about brass, you know that it is a combination of 50% cooper, which is reddish brown and zinc, which is dullish gray. This combination would produce a brownish color, and when burned, the brass would become a very dark hue. Many people will try to say that 'feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace' is not speaking of the complexion of Jesus. However, in Lamentations 5:10, it states "…skin black like oven." You know by reading the next verse, 11 that this is describing the tribe of Judah, "…in the cities of Judah."
Revelations 1:15 says "and his feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace …" The Hebrew word for "oven is rwnt tannuwr tan-noor', which is defined as "furnace, oven, fire-pot, (portable) stove." So, an oven and a furnace is the same thing. Note in Lamentations, his skin is black, and the word oven is there for Judah; and note in Revelation, his feet are burnt like in a furnace and this is talking about or describing Jesus' image and skin. So this also confirms that Jesus' skin was Black, and this is exactly what the Discovery Channel and the BBC have uncovered and are making public.
Dr. Dan Bahaat, a Jew from the University of Bar Ilan, has discovered several documents of tombs inside the Great Church in Israel, which he was able to date back 2000 years to the time of Jesus, the Judean. Dr. Richard Neave, a medical artist from the Medical University of Manchester, is the world's leading forensic pathologist, or reconstructer.
He reconstructed the face of Jesus from the bones, which they found in a tomb in Jerusalem, in Bethlehem of Judea where the bible Matthew 2 said Jesus was born. Dr. Richard Neave took the skull of a person from the tribe of Judah, Jesus' own tribe from 2000 years ago. Many such skulls have also been discovered, that dates back to Jesus' time. Bones have been tested and verified to be first century.
The first thing they noticed was that the skull was more rounded than the present day inhibitors of Jerusalem, the people calling themselves Israelis today are not the original people from Israel. The round skull was the kind of face that you find in North Africa, Egypt. These are the features of Nubia in Sudan and Egypt. Those people you see in Egypt today are not the indigenous Negroids; they are Turks "Caucasians."
Dr. Mark Goodcar stated that Jesus had a short and curly afro, which is Negroid hair. The statements that are being said are not racism because these are Caucasians who are finding these facts. they, said them, and discovered these facts. He also stated that Jesus' hair was black and short, not long.
In 1 Corinthians 11:14-15, it says, "Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering." Paul wrote a letter to Corinthians stating that it is disgraceful for a man to have long hair. The picture you see on the cover (on the right) has a woman's hairstyle. These were supposedly men who walked with Jesus. If Jesus did have long hair, then it would be deceitful for his men to preach differently. If Jesus did not have long hair, then it is clear the picture on the cover is not an accurate picture of what Jesus' looked like.
Rev. Dr. Tom Wright, a Caucasian theologian, also agrees that Jesus was a Black man with short, afro-hair and short, black beard. All of them agree that the many pictures of Jesus today are not the true likeness. He was dark-skinned with nappy hair, like all the original tribes of Abraham. Dr. Joe Zias, an archeologist, Dr. Gloria Moss, a historian, Dr. Sue Minter, a curator, and Professor James H. Charlesworth, Princeton theologian, were also featured on this tape, all-agreeing to the facts on how Jesus of the Judea tribe looked.
Now that your archeologists have discovered the bones of Jesus' family, we are grateful for these new facts, but it doesn't change how we feel about Jesus being the Son of God. However, the image of Jesus changes the visible image of the invisible God, as it says in Colossians 1:15. And Jesus said, "he that seen me hath seen the father" (John 14:9). Go back to Genesis 6:3, when God says, "My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh…", and then further back to Genesis 1:27 and 5:2, "God created man in his image and after his likeness."
Then when we look in John 1:14, it says the word was made flesh, which is Jesus, the word of God. By virtue of the fact that God said that Christ is the visible image, it means he can be seen with the physical eye. You can see his body; and to say, 'to see me is to see the father because the father dwells in me,' he's talking about his physical appearance. It really doesn't matter what race our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ belongs to, and being it was Caucasians who uncovered this information and made it public, it can't be taken as racism. In conclusion, we must worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). It says clearly in the Bible that no man has seen God (John 1:18), and that God is the father (Galatians 4:6), who art in heaven (Matthew 6:9), who is the most high God. There is a distinction between the unseen God (God the father) called the El Elyown (or the most high God, Psalms 82:6), and Jesus as the visible image of the invisible God and you being adopted sons of God (Galatians 4:5) and heirs to the kingdom of God (Galatians 4:7) when it comes (Revelation 21:1).
There is a distinction being made. It is clear that there is a holy seed that is related to God through Jesus Christ and there's an unholy seed related to the serpent through Lucifer (Genesis 3:15). In addition, Christ called the unholy seed the goat or rams (Matthew 25:32) and he called the holy seed, sheep, or lambs. So this is the time of the harvest and the holy seed, the lost sheep of the house of Israel (Matthew 10:5-6), the tribe of Judah must be called. We are a visible image of our invisible Heavenly Father. Amen, a man.
