This book tells the story of a family that began in ancient Mesopotamia about 5000 BCE, whose descendants are scattered to several nations, some of whom reside in the Americas. The journey undertaken by descendants of this family saw them through seven major world powers; where in, millions today has survived slavery. The Biblical Journey of Slavery takes the reader through thousands of years to show who were this family and their current dilemma of identity in the Western world. Members of this family are refered to as Africans of the Diaspora. The Text takes an overview of those who came To The West via the 'Atlantic Slave Trade'. Decades spent in search of identity by one descendant of the family, Is the result of the Biblical journey of Slavery. The narrative provides a source of enlightenment for millions of displaced Africans who lost their identity, and illustrates the fulfillment of prophecies written over 3000 years ago. There are questions about the past that haunt members of Diaspora Africans; some of which are addressed in this journey. Diaspora Africans frustration, bewilderment and lack of comprehension have found many avenues of expression; one of these avenues is destructive anger against self and brother. There are lessons of history that will aid understanding and solve complex issues that currently face African nations, communities and families in the West. The text presented will shed light on misconceptions, misunderstanding and deception plaguing millions who grope for their rightful place in society. The journey undertaken will visit ancient lands and show from maps, illustrations and undeniable evidence, episodes that connect Africans to their ancestral past that should have shaped their world. The revelation presented is a topic which time has come. Africans of the Diaspora will learn the root causes of their dilemma And The solution for healing, As visits to their ancestral lands, And The knowledge of their ancestral great contributions To The world is defined. There have been recorded detailed documented plans set in place and carried out by Christian slave owners to gain control not only of the physical body of the slave but to execute physiological mastery of the Captives mind (Example: The Lynch letter). The conditions imposed on the African in Western society, created a legacy of psychological damage. Whether Diaspora Africans' history is hidden by circumstances or design, their dilemma is in part rooted in lack of knowledge of their history and of those who oppress them. This unfortunate scenario will continue unless changes are set in place to educate To The contrary. it is important for this generation to set a precedent that will bring about that change. The journey From Egypt To The Americas: The Biblical Journey of Slavery will bring to light the Biblical Heritage of these dispersed Africans. Millions will appreciate and grasp the gravity of the present system responsible for moulding them into the spiritually twisted people the majority are today. There are issues needed to be addressed for Diaspora Africans who search for answers relevant to their past.

No longer satisfied with their former slave masters' name many have changed their names reflecting their desire to connect with the past. "What were the culture and religion of my forefathers?" Their confirmation to Christianity did not erase the persecution and oppression by the ones who introduced them To The religion. The most reverberated question of all, is, "Why can't Africans/Black People unite?" "Why are we so hated by other races?" "Why do we hate and destroy each other?" the destructive behaviour of Black on Black crime is seen presently in many former colonized African nations, In their communities, and on the Continent itself the Bible has the answers to many questions that haunt Diaspora Africans because the Bible is a history book about African People. The prophet Moses and his wife were Black Africans; this information is found in the Bible, yet is unknown To The masses.
