THE BLACK HANDS THAT HELP CARRY THE CROSS

THE CROSS-CULTURAL NATURE OF GOD’S WORD AND WORK WAS DIVINE DESTINY

THE BLACK MAN WHO HELPED JESUS

Now as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name.  Him they compelled to bear His cross.  (Matthew 27:32 NKJV).  Simon of Cyrene was a black man from Ethiopia, and this text and the identity of this man clearly reminds us all today that all cultures were represented at Calvary and in the church.  This further reminds us that wise men of all ages would be honored to be allowed to perform the task that was conferred upon Simon of Cyrene, a black man from northwestern Africa.  Whether it was voluntary or by force, in any case, black hands were extended to help the Savior bear His cross.  The Ethiopian eunuch from Africa (Acts 8:26) was the first Gentile convert mentioned by name in the Book of Acts.  History reports that he returned to Ethiopia to found the Abyssinian Christian Church, which exists until this day.

    First of all I would like to say the art is awesome. I think when we explore scripture we will find out a lot about our people, people of color being referred to in many ways. I think race was not an issue at all and God gladly displayed how he uses each of us for his purpose, that is what we were created for. The incidents makes me very proud to know we share so many important parts of history and still do today. I think the message is clear and it is so important for that message to reach our children and future generations, Let them know they came from mighty stock, so act like it and stop degrading each other. Be proud of who they are and strive to reach their potentials.
