JESUS WAS BLACK: RETHINKING AND RE-CONTEXTUALIZING THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

2016-10-18 12:50

Jesus Christ was undeniably Black!.

The ancient Hebrews were dark-skinned people, as was Jesus. The word Christ comes from the Indian, Krishna, which means "The Black one." The early paintings and statues vividly depict Jesus as Black.

When facts are placed one on top of the other, it becomes easy to re-size and minimize the falsification of His portrayal that stands erect. Than to rely on forging our own discoveries of His life on the basis of misinformed beliefs. Without first assembling together grand evidence that can rightfully locate His legacy within His true identity.

Poorly refined artworks of conjectural beliefs that are informed by the desire to dilute Christ's melanin, continues to deprive history of its glory and significance. Having false white images of Jesus remains a deceptive construct, perpetuated by religious misconception that was designed to justify white dominance. This, potentially shaped an intervention for whites, to re-frame Him in an unrecognizable reflection of appearance. Far distant from His own blackness. As a strategy to disempower Black people by erasing the memory of their greatest accomplishments from their consciousness. We've been fed lies.

A classical down run from reality supervised by denial and unwillingness to face up the truth.

Overtime, the underlying structural foundation of this distortion would collapse altogether when an intense process of rethinking and re-contextualizing the truth about Jesus Christ is undertaken. Revelation 1:15 holds some vital clues to the identity of Christ, "And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters."

African religious practices were first developed in Central Africa among indigenous peoples and later spread out the Nile Valley. They yielded greater results in Kemet (Egypt) where they were held high by its civilization advances and by the nature of its geography. It is by these early thought processes that Christianity was shaped into existence. In fact, the fundamental principles of Christianity springs from the ancient African Mystery System.

Christianity started in Alexandria, Egypt, with two black Africans Panteus and Boteus, and from there it migrated throughout the continent. This is supported by various sources some of which gained scholarly acceptance.

In his seminal work, African Origins of the Major Western Religions, Dr Yosef ben Jochannan states that "... Judaism, Christianity and Islam are as much African as they are Asian in origin, and in no sense what-so-ever European as the title, "Western Religions" suggests." Because their roots are traceable to the ancient Black Africa. However, despite this enlightenment, the racist White revisionist historians who are practicing intellectual witchcraft have very little embrace; less, if any, acknowledgment of this revelation. Because, in their narrow cycles their assignment is to dismiss and restrict findings that shows the contribution of African people in world civilization.

In so doing, they are preventing Black people from taking their rightful place in history. Under the Western lead falsity has become a norm.

According to Professor Locksley D.M Geoghagen, it is clear that "The general teachings and cosmological world view of the Egyptians eventually filtered down and provided the foundation for later so-called 'Western Religions,' i.e., Judaism, Christianity and Islam." Before rejecting them as being foreign, Black people should first consider the fact that they were stolen from them.

The founding fathers of Christianity Boteus and Panteus confirmed that Jesus was born in a cave in Ethiopia.

In essence, these and other unmentioned findings would help form the basis of resistance, in deconstructing pillars that were constructed to support white racism and its views. More than anything the notion of white Jesus that is full of deceit must be called into question, in order to challenge and change interpretations that are premised on the assumption that He was white. Because ahistorical facts that rests upon fabrication causes history to be underweight. This is problematic.

In addition to the proverbial return of Jesus; contesting unauthorized and fallacious arguments about Him that are entrenched in our dialectic discourse, is a necessary preparation of honoring His arrival. Since distortion is equally of great displeasure to Him.

Without doubt, this may lead the conversation towards an attempt to rewrite history. And for Black people, it can do much to restore their faith in themselves, it will energize their confidence as a people.

Of course, in embracing Christ's Messiahship Black people should also recognize the historical-fact that He is their ancestor.
