"God revealed himself to the Africans in the 1920s. He said they were Israelites," Samuel Wanyama, the high priest and self-styled representative of the Biblical Moses, said. "The Holy Spirit has shown us that Jesus was an African, not a white man. He is preparing his second coming and it will be here in Kenya in Bungoma, our area." The Judah Israelis believe the Jews in modern Israel are impostors because they do not believe Jesus to be the Messiah.
They are among the more original of the many independent churches set up around Africa in colonial days to give alternatives to the ban by mainstream churches on polygamy or female circumcision. The Judah Israelis encourage polygamy. "When these people are bringing the Old Testament into focus they are trying to make their message relevant to the ordinary man and woman in Africa," said Gilbert Ogutu, a religious studies professor at the University of Nairobi.
Religions can take some strange twists and turns - but I suppose that this religious group really isn't any stranger than others. It's just smaller and newer, much like Christianity once was. If someone finds orthodox Christianity to be credible, what is there that isn't credible about this group? Why not have faith in them?
