Product Description

The curse of Ham has been used for many years as the justification for slavery. But is our biblical history askew? Could Jesus or Moses have been black? Although the connection between the Bible and Africa has been made, biblical references have been overlooked on the matter. The afrocentric studies that have been done often overlook the vast amount of archaeological evidence available.

This book deals with the historical as well as the archaeological resources available to understanding biblical texts that deal with Africa. Dr. Yamauhi includes black and white maps, charts, author, subject, and Scripture indexes, and an appendix critiquing Black Athena. This is a must read for anyone who wants to learn about biblical history.
Edwin M. Yamauchi (Ph.D., Brandeis University) is professor of history emeritus at Miami University, Ohio. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including Persia and the Bible, Greece and Babylon, The Archaeology of New Testament Cities in Asia Minor, Harper's World of the New Testament, and Africa and Africans in Antiquity. A co-edited work, Peoples of the Old Testament World, won a Biblical Archaeological Society Award.

Publisher's Description

The "curse of Ham" has been used to legitimize slavery. Both Ethiopians and Arabians claim the queen of Sheba. Could Moses and Jesus have been black?

Edwin Yamauchi explores the historical and archaeological background of biblical texts that refer to Africa and traces the results of past interpretations and misinterpretations. He covers such topics as the curse of Ham's son Canaan, Moses' Cushite wife, Simon the Cyrene, and afrocentric biblical interpretation. Along the way, he dispels myths, interacts with current theories, and provides readers with sound judgments as to what the Bible does and does not say.

Readers interested in the connections between Africa and the Bible will enjoy this insightful book. More then eighty photos, maps, and charts are included.
