An anthropologist is arguing the son of God – Jesus Christ – came from West African country of Ghana.
Martin Kwasi Abrokwah said the ‘Messiah’ originated from the Eastern part of the oil-rich country in the tribe of the Akyems.
“Jesus Christ was originally an Akan, to be specific an Akyem. He was from Asiakwa, Asiakwa is Bethlehem, Kyebi (Kibi) is Beersheba, Kumasi is the same as Samaria. If we say Jesus is from the tribe of Judah, that tribe is the Akyem in Ghana,” the researcher and author of the book “Revelation, Movement of Akan People from Canaan to Ghana,” said on Accra-based Kasapa FM.
He continued: “The name Akyem is the short form of Jojakyem, the descendants of Jojakyem took the name Akyem as we know it in Ghana. Jojakyem was one time the king of Judah. From my etymological and anthropological research, Jesus Christ was a pure Akyem.”
Martin Kwasi Abrokwah disclosed that the Akan ethnic group which lived in Canaan were actually the first group of people to have defeated the ancient Egyptians in war.
He added that the Akans finally settled in the present location after several migrations and after having several encounters with people including Greeks and Romans.
Jesus was a first-century Jewish preacher and religious leader, who is the central figure of Christianity. He performed miracles and raised the dead and has been described as the most influential person in history.
