THE NEW TESTAMENT BELIEVERS
In the first five chapters of this book we spent our time on the Old Testament characters. We pray everyone understands that the Old Testament is the foundation of the New Testament. The Old Testament is centered in the Land of Ham, in Classical Africa and around Black Africans, Black Hebrew Israelites and People of Color. In the New Testament we do find these same lands and people mentioned in the Old Testament.
Most people are familiar with the New Testament than the Old Testament. We will therefore move quickly through some of these New Testament scriptures. Did you know that two of the disciples of Jesus were Black Classical Africans? (See Figure 6.1)
Mark 3:18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite. (See Figure 6.1)
Simon was a Black Classical African and so was Nathaniel who was called Bartholomew.
John 21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of His disciples. (See Figure 6.1)
