IT IS A GEOGRAPHICAL AND A HISTORICAL FACT that the Bible takes place "In and Around" the Continent of Africa.
So, why is it more Black Christians and Theologians do not challenge the notion of ONLY White Biblical figures and images?
To let White religious types, tell the story, all of the Disciples, all angels, all Egyptians and the Pharaohs, Moses, David, Solomon, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Samson, Joseph, and of course, Jesus (to name just a few), and everybody in the Bible, were all White Europeans which was, and is, geographically, historically, and physically Impossible.
Yet, stained glass windows in Black churches, church fans, illustrated "White" Bibles, television and Hollywood movies, and the thousands of images of religious figures, belie the "Blackness" in the Bible and would make one think persons in the Bible were "As White as the driven snow."
We need to "reclaim" the truth about the Bible, just as we need to "reclaim" the truth about an Incomplete, Dishonest, and a Racist American History.
It makes a difference when you TELL THE TRUTH about History AND the Bible.
BTW-You cannot hide a "WHITE BLUE-EYED BABY" named Jesus in Egypt, on the continent of Africa.
