They wrote it you say, the bible has so many different versions who do you know which one is authentic?

The versions of the bible i've seen and read in the modern world seem to mock the true history of our people.

How much was lost in the translation?

FYI: I'm not a follower of any religion, i can appreciate good hearted people no matter what they follow.
Hebrew identity and History is not linked to or based on translations of the Bible but rather it is based on the ORIGINAL script like the Dead Sea scrolls.

For example, our name EƲE, which is the ORGINAL name of the Israelites and which TRANSLATES in English as Hebrew is based on the ORIGINAL script. Thus when it comes to identification what matters is the original script and not on a Translation.

The ancient Israelites were called EƲE. The EƲE people live in West Africa. Their territory was called the Slave Coast during the Transatlantic Slave Trade because the majority of the Slaves to America was from this part of Africa. Thus the descendants of those Slaves in America are also EƲE aka Hebrews.

The Dead Scrolls are not a Bible. The scrolls are some of the earliest fragmented copies of the Hebrew Scriptures.

From History dot com: "The Dead Sea Scrolls include fragments from every book of the Old Testament except for the Book of Esther. Scholars have speculated that traces of this missing book, which recounts the story of the eponymous Jewish queen of Persia, either disintegrated over time or have yet to be uncovered.

"Others have proposed that Esther was not part of the Essenes’ canon or that the sect did not celebrate Purim, the festive holiday based on the book.

The only complete book of the Hebrew Bible preserved among the manuscripts from Qumran is Isaiah. This copy, dated to the first century B.C., is considered the earliest Old Testament manuscript still in existence.

Along with biblical texts, the scrolls include documents about sectarian regulations, such as the Community Rule, and religious writings that do not appear in the Old Testament."

END HISTORY dot COM snippet:

There are images of the Dead Sea Scrolls:

The Dead Scrolls are not a Bible. The scrolls simply prove that over countless centuries the Hebrew that was used to pen the words (without vowels) of the Old Testament, commonly referred to as the Hebrew Scriptures seems to be unchanged.,

We have more than the Dead Sea Scrolls. I just used that as an EXAMPLE. The original Septuagint is a translation of the Bible into Greek by the Hebrews themselves. Thus the Septuagint is no different from the Original text. We also have the Masoretic Text, which is another Bible put together by the Hebrews themselves.

Anyway, but what is the point of this focus on translations? What has it got to do with the FACT that the Israelites were called EƲE, which is our name in West Africa and thus makes the Bible our History book?
