    Was Farrakhan presenting accurate history?

    I disagree with Farrakhan for the following reasons........


    Daniel 7:9
    I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool

    Revelation 1:14
    The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire...

    Kinky Hair is like pure wool, and the term "ANCIENT OF DAYS" is a name or title for God that denotes Perfection and Eternity. So if God the Father physical hair is kinky then, kinky hair has been around before time began and if God hair is kinky then how can it be the result of what he Farrakhan says it is

    Taking a critical analysis of this, we could look at it as an adjective and for literal purposes.

    The relation to "white" and "white as snow" is the constant, as this was to represent Truth and Untainted Countenance.
    Of course, "white" was seen as benevolent and pure, so let's look at snow and wool (cleaned and purified).

    Snow: Typically white, and if not, something aint right
    Sheep: Typically covered in white fur, hair, wool

    This wasn't necessarily referring to texture, but appearance of purity.

    Mat 28:3
    His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow

    Mar 9:2
    And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

    Mar 9:3
    And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them.

    • The above is also a reference to "whiter than snow" (exceeding white as snow) in Psalms...

    Psa 51:7
    Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    Also note that "ancient people" can still sometimes be seen today

    White hair is usually associated with elders, wise people, etc.
    Not sure if his hair would be considered kinky, as kinky is another term for curly or interlocking, but it surely isn't straight.

    So is the "pure wool" a reference to "white", or to texture (curly or stringy)?

    I take it as both.....texture and color
    As the writer could also have said "white as snow" but he did not.
    Wool is not always or typically white.
    African Hair is often describe as woolly.

    As further evidence the color of the feet of the individual mention in Revelation 1 is describe as burnt brass...15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace;.

    I want to focus in on this comment

    What other colors of wool can one offer that are more typical?
    And share the images when one finds them if possible

    Just put sheep in your search and go to images....you will notice very few if any of the sheep are white but most tend to be tan or light brownish not white as snow

    Ok... so sheeps are mostly closer to a brown than a white?
    Will accept your theory and just move on from this particular portion of the discussion.

    Appreciate the input those, always thought that sheep were of white hair.

    By the way, did search the images, most came up white to off-white, but maybe that's just what I have seen.
    Never knew most sheep were brown

    But... to each their own, interpretation is such a wonderful thing

    We are so entitled.

    Truth is Truth and it only can withstand any test

    Off white (yellow/creamy white) is still not white especially as in "white as snow"
