What Is The Curriculum's Research Background?
It's crucial to recognize that the concept of race, as we understand it today, did not exist in the ancient biblical culture. It was a construct developed nearly 1700 years after the close of the Canon (Bible) during the European Age of Enlightenment (seventeenth to eighteenth century). The emergence of racism, a hierarchy devised by White men that: • Placed White people at the top while subjugating Blacks at the bottom, • Influenced how people read and interpreted the Bible. This distorted view of the Bible corrupted its liberation theme and justified white supremacy. Biblical characters were portrayed as white, erasing the diverse range of ethnicities in the Bible.
Why TBIBH Online Academy is Unique?
At our Academy, we offer you an alternative narrative that aligns more closely with the truth of God's holy Word. We provide biblical education centered on Yahweh's interaction with the Hebrew, Israelite, or Jewish people, who were primarily people of color. In contemporary social standards, they would be considered Black. We view this ancient biblical community as one that, throughout its history, sought liberation from political, economic, and spiritual oppression. The Bible's authors were primarily oppressed individuals writing to and about oppressed people, showcasing Yahweh as the God who partnered with the marginalized in their struggle for liberation. Their narrative challenges the Western mainstream narrative of a people emerging from domination and ending in domination.

The Bible Is Black History Institute
We are a Christian organization that believes Yahweh, the God of the Bible, is the only true God. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of Yahweh. Salvation comes through confession with the mouth that Jesus is Lord and belief in the heart that God raised Him from the dead, as described by apostle Paul in Romans 10:9. We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired written Word of God that serves as the rule for doctrine and faith that informs the Christian lifestyle. We also believe that the Bible is the faith history of a Black community called Hebrews.
What is the theological and psychological impact?
The Bible IS Black History!
Research proves that Adam was a Black man and that Eden was in East Africa.
DNA evidence confirms that the world's first man, who the Bible identifies as Adam, was a Black man from Africa.
Young people are becoming increasingly curious as to what role, if any, people of African descent played in biblical history... or if the Bible is devoid of Black presence and is merely a book by Europeans about Europeans and for Europeans to the exclusion of other races and ethnicities.
Dr. Theron D. Williams makes a significant contribution to this conversation by answering the difficult questions this generation fearlessly poses. He also shares historical images from the ancient catacombs that vividly depict the true likeness of the biblical Israelites. This book does not change the biblical text, but it will change how you understand it.
THE BIBLE IS THE SACRED HISTORY OF THE HEBREW PEOPLE.
THIS HOLY COMMUNITY WAS COMPRISED OF BLACK PEOPLE.
