    HOW EGYPT INVENTED WRITING & ALPHABET: The relationship with the Bible.

    By Andre Austin

    Roman historian Tacitus (55-117AD) writes in his famous The Annals:

    “It was the Egyptians who first symbolized ideas. These records, the most ancient of all human history, are still seen engraved on stone. The Egyptians also claim to have invented the alphabet, which the Phoenicians, they say, by means of their superior seamanship, introduced into Greece, and of which they appropriated the glory, giving out that they had discovered what they had really been taught” (The Annals XI:14).

    The Greek historian Herodotus reports:

    The Phoenicians introduced writing to the Greeks. “At first they used the same characters as all the other Phoenicians, but as time went on, and they changed their Language, they also changed the shape of their letters…they were taught these letters by the Phoenicians” (The Histories Book 5:58).

    The Phoenicians were once a colony of Egypt and they adopted their religion after them. “The Phoenicians give prominence of a place to a god “Taut” who is none other than the Egyptian god of writing Thoth” (Egypt, Canaan , and Israel in Ancient Time By Redford p.40).

    The Phoenicians exported papyrus from Egypt to their capital city Byblos, so when the Greeks first saw papyrus scrolls they called them biblia, ‘Byblos Things’, giving us the word Bible.

    Black people have a lot to be proud of we just have to pick up the books and dig it all out.

    As a substitute teacher for the past 6 year I've been trying to boost up students reading and writing skills.
