TextI thought Jesus was black, whats the issue? Being serious
There are some black people that insist that Jesus was a black man and in fact that Moses was also a black man. The black people who are taught this
are themselves trying to separate from the mainstream European teachings as well as Judaic teachings. According to the KJV bible, Moses was
admonished for crossing the racial line as well as crossing the theological line of the Hebrew people when he married an Ethiopian woman.
. Num 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.
This leads me to believe that Moses, being a Hebrew, crossed the culture line and was rebuked for doing so. That would tell me that he was not black.
Although Moses was not black, tradition tells a story of young Moses after he fled Egypt.
Being a young man of about twenty, Moses fell out of the grace of Pharaoh and fled to Midian. About this time the king of Cush [Kinkos] prepared for
war against the Syrians and while away was betrayed by his countrymen. Not allowed to return to his city, Kinkos laid siege and during this first
year of siege is when Moses happened upon the King. Kinko's siege lasted nine years and young Moses gained favor with the king for those nine years.
The great King took ill and died leaving the army without leadership. The officers of Kinko elected Moses as the King bringing him great riches of
gold and silver. Immediately Moses retook the city, assembled thirty thousand men and defeated Syria and the East. He then was given Kinko's widow
as a wife. The marriage was never consummated because she was a descendant of Canaan. Moses ruled a full forty years as King of Cush. As King
Kinko's son matured and the people wanted the son to be King they approached Moses with this problem. Moses agreed that the son was the rightful
heir and left the Cu#es with great wealth from the entire nation. From here he went to Midian where he spent ten years in prison by the decree of
Now this tradition tells us (if true) that in this era of history, the racial barriers were not as they are today. Granted that some did have racial
prejudices but it is difficult to determine whether it was actual race or religious factors involved. Reading two or three thousand year old
literature in comparison to our present day culture is not clear in many respects. It is written in the KJV bible that Isaac forbid Esau to marry a
Canaanite or even associate with them but many scholars believe this was due to the Canaanites worshiped Ba'al among other gods. The Canaanites were
regarded as a black race.
As you dig into traditional beliefs, you can then understand that people today are just as prejudiced as at any time in history and it is my belief
that it will always be that way. I am not Jewish and it bothers me not a bit to have the belief of a Jewish Messiah. If the Messiah was black it
would matter nothing to the salvation message.
