I know a lot of the Bible takes place in Egypt, but I never really thought about how much of it takes place in Africa and probably involved black
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.
But then there is much that is in oral Torah and tradition that is not read by most Christians. Some years ago I authored a book called "Seven
Earths" and in that book I explained why Moses' sister and prophetess, named Miriiam, and his brother, Aaron, also chided Moses in their anger of
Moses having the black Ethiopian as his wife. Here is a portion of that tradition.
Most people have not heard the following story of the young Moses. It happened that Moses very well knew his roots and knew exactly who his mother,
father, sister and brother were. After his killing one of Pharaoh’s officers, he fled the land of Egypt in fear of his life. He was a very well
educated young man about twenty years old and was a brilliant tactician in the war rooms of Pharaoh. With this background he fled Egypt and came into
the land of Midian and dwelt beside a well. It was here that he became a victim of war.
At this time a war broke out between Cush [Ethiopia] and Aramia. Both Aramia and Ethiopia were vassal states of Cush whose king was named Kinkos.
Kinkos led his army off to the battle field and left Balaam and his two sons to care for his kingdom. King Kinko defeated the rebels and returned
home but upon his return he found that he had been overthrown by Balaam and his two sons. Kinkos tried to breach all walls of the city but was
defeated on all counts. He then laid siege to the city of Cush and this was where Moses came upon the scene.
With Moses’ education in these matters of warfare, he was sought out by the King and joined his army as both advisor and teacher. The siege lasted
nine years and during these nine years King Kinkos became ill and died. This left Moses as the chief strategist in the army and with a vote of
confidence he was appointed the King’s successor. As the new king, Moses then defeated the rebels of Cush and retook the city. He ruled in peace
for a full forty years and was greatly loved by all.
The rift between some people may lay in the fact that Moses married the queen of Kinko but in this marriage was no consummation. It was this queen
who rebelled against the authority of Moses since her son, by King Kinkos, was now fully developed in mind and body and the true inheritor of the
throne. Moses agreed that Kinkos son was indeed the true king and stepped down from his office. The people of Cush loved Moses so much that they
bestowed untold wealth and gifts upon him. Moses decided to leave Cush and did leave as a very wealthy man. His age was now sixty years when he left
Seven years later is when Moses met Jethro the retired priest of Midian. Jethro had some wealth as a shepherd but could find no men to be his
shepherds. It was for this reason that we find the daughters of Jethro at the well doing this watering of the flock. Jethro learned of the deposed
Moses from the throne of Cush and suspecting him to be a foul person, had imprisoned Moses for ten years. Actually Moses was soon forgotten and
assumed dead from starvation and disease and was it not for the daughter of Jethro named Tzipporah, feeding him secretly, Moses would not have lived.
Tzipporah pleaded with her father, Jethro, to spare Moses and as a result of this love which she had for Moses, he was released.
From this tradition one must be very careful to observe the fact that this may not have had anything to do with race [for the Queen was black], but
could have been that she was not Hebrew and was considered an outsider till converted to the God of Abraham. Mixed marriages were determined mostly
by deities and not skin colors. Miriam was considered a prophetess with more insight into the God of Abraham than most others. But when we consider
that Miriam was punished then it becomes more probable that she did disapprove based upon skin color. So in lite of this one can draw their own
