Is Tarshish China?
No. This claim comes from some of the communist channels who are willing to
commit fraud to lead to China and Russia. Tarshish was son of Japheth inheriting
the Greek Isles with his brothers which means they became mariners, perhaps the first
of significance after the Flood. Ophir, Sheba, Havilah and the sons of Joktan (from
Shem) inherited the Far East area of Sephar, the Mount of the East (both Garden of
Eden references) on Shem’s Eastern border which we know today as the Philippines.
They lived in Mesha, Iran even according to Josephus, and they migrated after Babel
to the Philippines on the ships of Tarshish. Thus Tarshish also received a portion
of the Philippines as payment. (See “The Search for King Solomon’s Treasure” for
full evidence). China is deep into Shem’s territory and that fraud is almost an entire
continent off in error. (Ch. 8 Shem’s Mapping). It cannot be Britain/Spain either as
both fail in resources, direction and even have their history saying they are not.
Is Ophir, land of gold, in Africa?
There is only 1 Ophir in the Bible and that is the one from Eber, from Shem. Chapter
8’s mapping is very clear Shem only went to the coast of Africa and all of Africa is
Did the Queen of Sheba originate in Ethiopia or Yemen?
Chapter 8 mapping affirms the full territory of Shem. It does not include Africa thus
the one from Ethiopia is the wrong Queen as that is in Ham’s territory and the Queen
of Sheba from 1 Kings 10 descends from the other Sheba (Gn. 10:26-30) brother of
Ophir, from Eber, from Shem not Ham.
Why Was It OK for the Lost Tribes of the Southern Kingdom to Migrate
to Africa (Is. 11:10-12)?
The mapping of Chapter 8 identifies the West Coast known as the Slave Coast in
history as the territory of Canaan. Canaan stole Israel instead and did not take
his inheritance. Ancient maps indicate this became territory claimed by Cush/
Ethiopia. Judah especially married Shua the Canaanite and thus, the bloodline of
Canaan remains in his tribe as well giving them the right to go to Canaan legally
and Biblically. Even African maps during the era of the Transatlantic Slave Trade
indicate Lost Tribes there in that area.
