The motive of this work is to expose overwhelming evidence of the immense contribution over many centuries by children of AFRICA (NUBALLA) indigenous and abroad, to the now diluted western religious persuasion. It is our deepest wish that all readers, regardless of their ethnic origin, may be inspired by this offering. Let the numerous myths perpetrated over the centuries be finally put to rest. For the children of NUBALLA did govern early Christian Empires with Monotheistic conviction.
While in the latter times, they did substantially conduce to the now prevalent conviction of Jesus Christ as an integral part of the “HOLY TRINITY” during and after the phenomena of ANTIOCH. However the undisputed antiquities of Alexandria, Theban Delta, Carthage, Numidia, Soba, Axum, Nobadia, Alodia and Muqqurra on the continent of NUBALLA dwarfing Rome and Constantinople could not be resisted. Nor the everlasting impact of legends that feature ZEUS, LILLITH, ISIS, HERMES and SIBYL excluded.
The legacy of scriptural literature by early Nubians is not well known to many who preach and profess to practice Christianity. If anything, the crucial evidence is suppressed by the powers that be, hidden away in the vaults of numerous academic and religious libraries as well as museums across Europe (East & West). Nevertheless these priceless documents provide distinct proof of the invaluable contributions made by Nubian Christians over the centuries. These works have provided the basis for the way of life of the faithful from the earliest times unto present day. It is unfortunate that not enough is being done currently to promote this knowledge by way of research and dissemination.
