    THE BIBLE AND AFRICAN HISTORY

    The North African country of Egypt was called “the land of Chemia” (or “Kemia”) in ancient times. The root word “chem” (or “kem”) means “black” in the Egyptian language. The English word “chemistry” is derived from the Egyptian “chem.”

    The word “Egypt” itself means “black” in the Hebrew language. So does the word “Cush,” the ancient name of Sudan, the country that shares Egypt’s southern border.

    The word “Africa” is the Latinized version of the Arabic “Ifriqiyah,” which translates “the Queen of Heaven.” Ifriqiyah was also the original name of Tunisia, the northernmost country on the African continent.

    The people called “the Jews” were enslaved in ancient Egypt because they were the first strangers that migrated into the country, being the first of the mixed people. The Gentiles of the Bible were the Greeks and Romans, offspring of the children of Adam and Eve who wandered north. Those who migrated further north founded the Biblical nations of Gog and Magog (Ezek. 38:2). These nations are now called Europe and Russia.

    The Biblical patriarch Abraham is called the father of all Semitic nations. He and his followers were the first people of ancient Chaldea to leave their country and cross the Euphrates River on their way to the land of Canaan, or the “Promised Land.” They were called “Eberus,” in order to distinguish them from the Babylonians, Chaldeans and Israelites who stayed in Babylon, the ancient capital of Chaldea. Abraham was a descendant of Eber, Noah’s great-great grandson, and the word “Eber” means “the region beyond.”

    Through incorrect transliteration by some Biblical translators, Abraham the Eberu became Abraham the “Hebrew” (Gen. 14:13), a name by which some Jews are called even today. But Hebrew is the language of the Jewish people. There is no such thing as a Hebrew race or a Hebrew people.

    Abraham begat Isaac by Sarah, his Chaldean wife who was also his half-sister (Gen. 20:11-12), and Ishmael by Hagar, an African woman who was the daughter of an Egyptian-Ethiopian Pharaoh. Ishmael, Abraham’s first-born, is acknowledged as the father of all Arabs, whereas Isaac is considered the father of all Jews. Ishmael’s first-born son was named Kedar, which means, “black-skinned.”

    Our Biblical history is the history of Abraham, Ishmael and Kedar; the history of ancient Egypt and the Egyptian-Ethiopian Pharaohs. “Ethiopia” is a Greek word, meaning, “land of the burnt faces.” The original name of the country was “Abyssinia,” from which the English word “abyss” is derived. The word “abyss” means “a deep, dark hole.”

    Our history is the history of the people who were already living in the land (i.e., on the African continent) when the stranger came. The first stranger was the Jew, the first of the mixed people. Then came the Gentile, or Caucasian. Subsequently, his story became history, and my story became a mystery…

    Thank you, soul_doctor...

    Ham was the second son of Noah. The name itself means, "hot" or "sunburnt" in the Hebrew language. In the 9th chapter of Genesis is recorded the odd story of the infamous "Curse of Ham." After having 'drank of the vine' and become intoxicated, Noah fell asleep nude in his tent, where the unfortunate Ham happened to see him lying naked. When Noah awoke and realized that Ham had seen him 'uncovered,' he uttered his prophetic malediction: 'Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.'"

    Canaan was Ham's eldest son...

    how do resolve the issue that many people recognize the first jews as black.

    also that there is no record of the enslavement of the jews despite the fact that Kemet was notorious for recording all major events?

    Blessed brother Aquil

    But how have you left out the historical account of the Black Israa elites the suns of Isaac for since Abra HAM was Eberu/Hebrew and Black did he not begat Black suns such as Ishmael and Keturah's suns?

    Before Moses started writing Genesis - there was an African history. However, as we look at the bible and then look at Upper Kemet - it does get interesting
