Reading the Bible with your Eyes Open – Hebrew Ethnicity in New Testament and Old Testament

Apostle Paul

When the Roman Captain caught Apostle Paul, the chief captain was surprised that Paul spoke Greek. He thought that Paul was an Egyptian. That means that the Apostle Paul did not look like a European, he looked like an African.

Paul was a well educated Hebrew who was born in Western Asia (Tarsus) and therefore was familiar with Greek language and different cultures. He was a Hebrew (aka Negro) who was called to preach the gospel to Europeans and West Asians.

Acts 21
37 And as Paul was to be led into the castle, he said unto the chief captain, May I speak unto thee? Who said, Canst thou speak Greek?
38 Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers?

Apostle Timothy

Timothy’s father was Greek, and his mother was a Jewess. Everybody knew this, because it was obvious he looked mixed, like a Mulatto. He looked like a European mixed with a Negro. He looked different than Paul, a Jew who was mistaken for an Egyptian.

Acts 16:1 Then came he to Derbe and Lystra: and, behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timotheus, the son of a certain woman, which was a Jewess, and believed; but his father was a Greek:
2 Which was well reported of by the brethren that were at Lystra and Iconium.
3 Him would Paul have to go forth with him; and took and circumcised him because of the Jews which were in those quarters: for they knew all that his father was a Greek.

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses

Abraham and Isaac both made Egypt their home at one point. Egypt is the land of Ham. All of Jacob’s sons intermarried with Canaanites, who descend from Ham, because Jacob’s sons were in the land of Ham.
Joseph married an Egyptian, and was indistinguishable from Egyptians to his own brothers. Moses also was indistinguishable from Egyptians, and he also married a Cushite woman.
So all of Israel comes from the land of Africa and in their genetic beginnings intermarried with descendants of Ham.
Genesis 38
2 And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.
