Did Jesus have dredlocks?
The Prophet Jesus was a Nazarite: a vow of Nazarites (Nazarenes)
was to never cut their hair but "let the locks of the hair
of his head grow" (Num. 6:2, 5, Lev. 19:27; 21:5). The word
Nazarite is from nazar, meaning unshorn and consecrated to God.
It has nothing to do with Nazareth.1 In India, nazar means
sight and internal or supernatural vision.2 The Nazarenes
(also known as the Essenes) were reknown for their prophets or
The firstborn child, in some Afrikan traditions, especially the daughter,
is dedicated to God and their hair is never cut, but allowed
to grow as locks especially if the child is a descendant
of a healer or shaman. Such a "Child of God" is highly
revered and believed to inherit healing powers bestowed by God.3
Afrikans of the Nile Valley, that is, the ancient Egyptians,
often wore their nappy hair in locks, as evidenced by their sculptural
reliefs. Apollo, originally a Black god adopted from Afrika by
the Greeks, was the sun and Homer called him "he of the
unshorn hair." 4 The Bible states "He shall
be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow"
(Num. 6:5). Samson, the most famous example of locked
hair, had seven locks (Jud. 13:5, 16:17,19). Samson was the Judaic
version of the Sungod called Shams-On in Arabia, Shamash in Babylon,
Hercules in Greece, and Ra in Egypt. Samson's name signifies
the sun. His seven locks were the sun's rays with their seven
colors or vibrations. His loss of hair meant the cutting of the
sun-god's rays, in the winter season when he became weak.
Medusa's "hair of snakes"
were really dredlocks
She was the Afrikan serpent-goddess representing Female Wisdom
and was called "the mother of all gods, whom she bore before
childbirth existed." In typical treatment of maligning Afrikan
tradition, European "classic myth" made Medusa into
a monster; the terrible Gorgon whose look turned men to stone.
The Gorgons were a trinity whose names were Medusa, Stheino,
and Euryale or Wisdom, Strength, and Universality.
European writers pretended they were monsters, but these are
not the names of monsters! Medusa was the Destroyer aspect of
the Triple Goddess called Neith in Egypt and Athena in Greece.
Medusa's name is derived from Egyptian Maat (Truth), which also
gives us the words medicine, mathematics, and Sanskrit medha
