At Genesis part 9 describes a long-held story:
“And the sons of Noah that came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth; and Ham is the father of Canaan. These three are the sons of Noah, and the whole earth was filled with them. Then Noah began to till the land, and planted a vine; and he drank of the wine, and was drunk, and was uncovered in the middle of his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness, and told his two brothers outside. Then Shem and Japheth took the clothes, and put them on their own shoulders, and walking backwards, they covered the nakedness of their father, turning their faces, and thus they did not see the nakedness of their father. And Noah awoke from his drunkenness, and knew what his youngest son had done to him, and said: Cursed be Canaan; He will be a servant of servants to his brothers. He said more: Blessed by the Lord my God be Shem, And Canaan be his servant. May God magnify Japheth, And dwell in the tents of Shem, And let Canaan be his servant. And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
Because Africans were considered descendants of Ham, I know justified their slavery for centuries. But now with the help of technological advances, three Hebrew language experts have managed to decipher part of the reading of the Dead Sea scrolls that contradict the curse.
Professor Eliseo Qimron sent the photograph of the fragment to Hanan Ariel and Alexey Yuditsky, two of his assistants, so that each one could decipher it separately and be able to more effectively contrast the conclusions. Through their translation they came to the conclusion that Canaan invaded a land that was not his and that was the reason why their descendants were banished, not as a curse for what their father did.
This interpretation is also known by the apocryphal book of Jubilees which survived in the Ethiopian sacred language Gez and in Greek.
I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
