More About Black People in the Bible by Randolph Jackson; Amber Burgess Greene
Charlton Heston played the part of Moses on the silver screen, while Cleopatra was portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor. The hand that reaches out to receive God's graces along the curved vault of the Sistine Chapel is pale in color, and in Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting The Last Supper, our savior shares his final meal with twelve white apostles. Throughout history, biblical characters have been portrayed as Caucasian in artwork and in words, while the actions of people of color during this time have remained largely unreported-and this is an entirely inadequate, inaccurate, and unacceptable account of biblical history. Given the geographical location of The Holy Land alone, it stands to reason that many people of color were present and involved in the events described in the bible. But we need not rely on reason alone to convince us that many people in the bible were black. We can look to the bible itself to support this proposition, and Black People in the Bible pinpoints exactly what passages to turn to. An educational, enlightening, and empowering text, Black People in the Bible presents information and quotes from the bible that clearly indicate the presence and role of black people in the bible, showing that many of the most prominent biblical personalities with whom we are familiar were, in fact, people of color. Black People in the Bible will prove a worthwhile read for anyone interested in black history or biblical studies. For persons of African heritage in particular, it will prove even more. Author, retired New York State Supreme Court Justice Randolph Jackson, dedicates this book to all people of African origin, no matter how distant, helping generations to come to discover and take pride in their glorious past so that they may realize an ever more glorious future.
