Did you know that “Jesus” was Black?
That’s right. Our Messiah and Redeemer was a
Black man; His father and mother were Black,
and His entire family lineage. “Jesus” was a
Hebrew-Israelite from the tribe of Judah, of the
House of Jacob. The Ancient Hebrews were
black, dark-skinned people. How do we know this? It says
so in the Bible. The Bible is actually the
recorded history of the House of Jacob and
their relationship with the Almighty Creator,
our Heavenly Father. There are various accounts in the Bible where the Ancient Hebrew-Israelites were often mistaken, or confused for the Ancient Egyptians. Why? Because they looked alike. This means that if a Hebrew-Israelite and an Egyptian were standing next to each other, and someone walked by them they would not know which one was Hebrew-Israelite, or which one was Egyptian.
Many of us are familiar with the story of Joseph; his older brothers were jealous of him and sold him to Midianite traders, who sold him in Egypt. Though he went through a lot of cruel experiences he eventually became one of the most powerful leaders in Egypt, second in command to Pharaoh. In the Book of Genesis, starting at chapter 42 we read the account of how his brothers went to Egypt to buy corn because of a famine in their own country. Many years earlier, Joseph had come up with the idea of storing away grains and foodstuffs so that the people could still eat and survive in case of a drought and/or a famine. So he was in charge of the distribution of grains; his brothers had to deal with him in order to purchase corn for their family. He recognized them, but they did not recognize him – they thought he was an Egyptian official. Why? He was dressed like the other Egyptians, and he was speaking their language. If Joseph had not revealed himself to his brothers they would never have known that he was not Egyptian.
