About the Author

The Black Biblical Heritage is a book that reveals Blacks in the Bible. This interesting text is composed of 4000 years of Black biblical history, based on the geneology of Ham, the progenitor father of Africa and parts of Asia.

Other than the Holy Bible itself, The Black Biblical Heritage is the first book printed in North America too expose an African (or African descent) Bible Heritage.

I encountered this book years ago in the University Hills Library in Austin, Texas. Burned by my involvement with my previous church and ministry, I had become disillusioned, distraught and lacking in faith. Atheism, before the current popular tomes advocating a departure from all faiths, appealed to me. This literally turned my head and halted me in my tracks. I checked it out - 3 times - before purchasing it on Amazon.

This is a wellspring that allows one to hold his/her head up as we see (now) played out in American politics the onslaught against African Americans by forces on the left and right that do not know the contributions Africans have made not only to world culture but to the most significant spiritual expression in Western civilization. Current events find European Americans still ignorant of the complex Homiletics of the African Diaspora and its spiritual entities. "Black Liberation Theology" is something now discovered on Fox News and sound bites on You Tube the complete philosophy of Senator Obama's former pastor. It is a willful ignorance born of arrogance and hegemony from the previous "peculiar institution" formerly known as slavery that would birth such a tradition.

"Our people perish due to a lack of [self] knowledge." (Hosea 4:6) And the knowledge should be shared, discussed and preached. It should be used to build us up as a people; to "set the captives free." (Luke 4:18)

[...]: "About 10.4% of the entire African-American male population in the United States aged 25 to 29 was incarcerated, by far the largest racial or ethnic group--by comparison, 2.4% of Hispanic men and 1.2% of white men in that same age group were incarcerated.

Writing The Black Bibiical Heritage was a good effort by John L. Johnson, and I applaud him for it. However, he made an inexcusable error. He places Ham as the Original Black man. This would suggest that Noah, father of Ham, was a white man. He suggests that there were no Black people before Ham. That is an incredible mistake. There is NO field of science that supports getting Black genes from White genes. Certainly one can conceive of white variants from black genes; they are called ALBINOS. Human genetics affirms that black genes are dominant and white genes are recessive. That is the Law of Mendel. White people cannot bare Blacks, coloreds, Negroes, Ethiopians, Africans, native Americans, or aboriginis. There is only one way that White people can produce Black people, and that is through the notion of White Supremacy.
It is not racist to say that the Black man is the Original Man; it is a fact. And what is wrong with that? Modern anthropologists do not go to Europe or Scandinavia to trace the origins of man. They go to Africa. Their techniques of dating early man reveal that Black people are ancient people, far outdating White people. So what? That is NOT racism; that is fact. Get over it! Besides, God does not judge man by his race, but by his righteousness, his faithfulness, and his obedience to truth. Never fear truth; it shall set ye free.

Presenting the original language of the first humans , the locale and identity of these humans has long been shelved . This book should be in the educational systems of every educational institution in this country as well as international educational systems.

The Black Biblical Heritage, is an excellent resource book for the average bible student. The drawings for each character with strong african features are wonderful. Mr. Johnson has done an excelent job on his research using the Bible, historical sources as well as other modern scholars and presenting a clear concise picture of some of the under studied characters of the Bible. He presents a concise picture of Black Biblical heroes and villans by simply presenting the facts with scripture refrence. His research makes it easier for me to tell the story of God plan for Man and redemption.
I would definately recommend the book to anyone who has an intrest in Old Testament Bible Studies, or just curious about African Biblical heritage. It can be a great study guide for a youth or young adult group to introduce them the study of characters in the Bible. Most of the people he hilighted aren't discussed in a general Sunday school lesson plan.
This book is written more like a refrence book. It is not a narrative or novel that you can sit down and read from cover to cover. A book that all bible students and teachers should have in their collection.

The Black Biblical Heritage

I am so blessed to finally read in a book what I was told as a child by my dad who finished sixth grade, but when he died he had received an honorary doctorate. My dad told me that everything came out of Africa; he told me this information without fanfare and pride. I did not understand what he was saying or the implications of what he was teaching until much later in life. I am now in my sixties and I certainly understand what he wanted me to know.

Dr John Johnson has spent his life exposing the truth and now I am so thankful that I was confronted by the knowledge in the "The Black Biblical Heritage." Wow! It is an awesome document with incredible sketches that not only pictorially show the truth, but it is graphically written by Dr Johnson. This work needs to be placed in the hands of every minister so the world can be released from the bondage of the lies that have been told for centuries. I believe that Jesus Christ, the son God who sits at the right hand of the Father, would want this information to be told to the world before He returns to catch His church away. This knowledge needs to be told now, because many who may see Him could be frighten when they discover that He is a man of African descent - Negro.

With the help of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit I will do all I can to fulfill (KJV) Ephesians 4:12," For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" I will help spread this truth.

Thank You, Dr Johnson for your faithful service and I encouraged continuing your life long work.
