ED Conqueror Review The significance of association of the name YHWH with the legendary hero of an antique Kushitic civilization is generally missed in the context of the anti-Hamitism of ancient Semitic culture, even as the significance of the identification of the Hamitic-Jebusite King Melchizedek with the Hebrew "Most High God" (el elyon) is usually ignored.The evidence is that Semitic culture and civilization matured on the pre-existent matrix of the Hamitic culture of the ancient Egyptians, even as the culture of barbarian Germanics was nurtured on the pre-existent matrix of Latin civilization. And just as the Reformations signaled the coming of age of Germanic civilization, so also did the emergence of Semitic culture witness a revolution involving an assertion of the Semitic identity by rising anti-Hamitic sentiments (thus the genocidal policy of the Hebrews in Canaan would be explained away as divinely approved).
The popular interpretation of the statement: "Nimrod was a mighty hunter before YHWH," forces a negative connotation on an otherwise neutral text. The saying: "Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before YHWH," can be interpreted as a compliment. Similarly, the saying may be construed to imply a God-devotee relationship between YHWH and Nimrod (one might say, in this sense, that even as Nebuchadnezzar was a mighty hunter before his god Marduk, so was Nimrod a mighty hunter before (his god) YHWH).
The culture of Israel had been exposed to strong Hamitic influence in the four and a half centuries of sojourn in Egypt(the Hebrew scripture classifies the ancient Egyptians among the "sons of Ham"). The significance of the fact that Moses had a Kushitic wife becomes glaring when we realize that the Jews acquired the tradition of circumcision from Hamitic cultures which had practiced circumcision since prehistoric times. The African scholar Modupe Oduyoye has demonstrated in his work, Afro-Asiatic Interpretation of Genesis, a strong Hamitic undertone of thought in the garbled ideas expressed by the Hebrew writers in the Genesis creation account http://edreverserbookreview.com/
