Beliefs and Commentaries

Text Box: The very first “BIBLE” or “Scroll” on record produced by man, with regards to paying honour and divine respect to a “CREATOR OF ALL MANKIND,” was that of the African People of the Nile Valley and Great Lakes regions of Central, East and Northeast Africa. They were no different from the Africans we see in the Harlem and TOMBOUCTOU (Timbuktu) of the entire world we erroneously call “NEGROSES, COLOURED FOLKS” and “BLACK PEOPLE” today.

The very first “BIBLE” or “Scroll” was called by its African creators and developers –
“THE BOOK OF THE COMING FORTH BY DAY AND BY NIGHT”. It was translated from its origin Hieroglyphic Text into the English Language by many Europeans since the latter part of the 19th Century A.D. The easiest one to read is called “THE”[Egyptian]”BOOK OF THE DEAD.” 	This translation was done by Sir Ernest A. Wallis Budge, and published in London, England during the year 1895 A.D.

Since the ORIGINAL BIBLE was produced by the Africans approximately 3,400 years before the OLD TESTAMENT, and more than 4,200 years before the NEW TESTAMENT, countless VERSIONS of it have been written and published. From this base all of the biblical references in this paper is rendered. You will notice that they follow in sequential order… the two[2] ORIGINALS and all of the VERSIONS of the Old and New Testament. For further details beyond this paper you should read Volume III of  THE BLACK MAN’S RELIGION.

A Chronology of the Bible

“Challenge To The Standard Version”

By Dr. Yosef Ben-Jachannan

Text Box: “All faith is FALSE, all faith is TRUE.
TRUTH is the shattered mirrors strewn In myriad bits; while each BELIEVES
His LITTLE BIT the whole to own.”

From “The Kasidah of Hji Abu el-Yezdi”, as translated by Sir Richard F. Burton

Text Box: Although it is the “KING JAMES [Authorised] VERSION OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT” that most Protestant Christians use as “THE ONE, AND ONLY, TRUE BIBLE,” you MUST be reminded that it is one of the very late of the many VERSIONS of the BIBLE; and that many of the other VERSIONS that preceded it are easier to read, which includes most of the other English language VERSIONS since its publications in 1611 A.D. You will also notice that there were many English VERSIONS before the “KING JAMES [Authorised] VERSION OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT.” Its popularity was due to the fact that the rulers of Great Britain's military owner were able to force practically everyone in their hundreds of colonies throughout the entire world to adopt the “OFFICIAL BIBLE OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND” as “THE ONE, AND ONLY, TRUE HOLY BIBLE.”

It will prove most beneficial for BILBLE STUDY CLASSES to make comparisons between the various VERSIONS. This method of STUDY will not only enrich your retention of the teachings of the BIBLE; but it will also giv	e you a better understanding of the role of the African People commanded in the founding of JUDAISM and CHRISTIANITY. You will equally understand that most BLACKS do not know that the NEW and OLD TESTAMENT historically, geographically, socio-politically, racially, etc. are PART AND PARCEL OF THEIR OWN HERITAGE. Some of the MAJOR VERSIONS, and the [2] ORIGINAL BIBLE, follow in chronological order below along with highlights of the historical events that caused and/or influenced them. I have shown the map below as an aid to the LAND OF THE BIBLE [Africa and Asia, followed very much later by Europe].
