specific to skin tone. It is a derivative of Adam and originates in the word (Hebrew:
‘adam: : Strong’s #H120) which also refers to red skin tone and not hair as
Adam was formed from the red soil of the ground [adamah: : H127: soil
(from its general redness)]. Hebrews are red-skinned and darker. None are recorded
as white in scripture. Many confuse passages which use white for purity as skin tone
erroneously and some have inserted black in the same fashion especially regarding the
Revelation mention of an anointed Messiah returning glowing in countenance as the
sun and as bronze as it exits the furnace. Neither of those are black but glowing very
bright. Revelation does not mention Messiah’s skin tone.
However, only erroneous assumption attributes Esau’s name of Edom to his skin tone
or worse his hair which was not red. If they would not have banned Jubilees, they
would have known this and would not appear foolish. In Jubilees, Esau was known
as Edom or “red” because of the red pottage or soup in which he sold his birthright
haphazardly. That is why he is called “red” or Edom not his skin at birth and he
certainly did not have red hair.
“...and Esau despised his birthright; for this reason was Esau’s name called
Edom, on account of the red pottage which Jacob gave him for
Is the Garden of Eden in Africa or the Middle East?
No. Jubilees places it on the Eastern border of Shem. Africa is Ham’s territory and on
Shem’s Western edge not East. The Middle East is West as well. Neither is anywhere
near the Garden which is in the Far East. Jub. 8 (See Garden of Eden Map)
Is Japheth to Dwell in the Tents of Shem?
No. Yahuah dwells in the tent of Shem never Japheth. This explains a century’s old
claim from Rabbis who attempt to claim Japheth has a right to take Shem’s land. He
does not and his people who do so will suffer a curse as a result. Jub. 7:11-12
says: “And he blessed Shem, and said: “Blessed be the Yahuah Elohim of Shem, and
Canaan shall be his servant. Elohim shall enlarge Japheth, and Elohim shall dwell
in the dwelling of Shem, and Canaan shall be his servant.” Compare to Gn. 9:2627 which is misrepresented by many today. Jubilees clarifies this.
How Many Days in a Biblical Year? Jub. 6:38.
364. 12 – 30-day months with an added day each quarter and based on the sun.
