Exodus Chapter 3 African Commentary

Welcome to this Exodus chapter 3 African commentary or Afrocentric commentary. And why would anyone, and primarily anyone outside of African culture or Afro background be interested in African commentary of any scripture let alone Exodus chapter 3?

It’s easy; this is not to offend any culture outside of Africa or Afro Diaspora. But the facilitators of the Word of the Great Spirit, from the book of Genesis to the book Revelation (and everything in between) have all been what the world would call African people today.

For the last five-hundred years or more, the commentary and teaching perspective of the scriptures has been given from a Caucasian-European perspective. In itself, that is unfair, not just to “African” people and all people, but also to Caucasion-Europeans as well.

This is why we started the Unprofitable Lies website. We are retelling the very story in the scripture but through the lens of “on-the-ground, African soil-born” brothers and sisters. You can read our latest unprofitable lies published on our website, titled: Moses Meets the Great Creator, I AM that I AM: Exodus 3

African Commentary Exodus Chapter 3

Exodus chapter 3 holds a profound significance within the Afrocentric / Shemetic narrative, that embodies the essence of liberation, divine calling, and the empowerment of the oppressed. This chapter is steep in the rich complexity of African and Afro spirituality. Also in ancestral reverence (honor your father and mother). 

It also serves as a transformative moment in the liberation journey of the children of Israel (aka the Bantus), resonating deeply with the African diaspora and all oppressed people around the world.

In this pivotal chapter, we witness the encounter between Moses, a descendant of African Shemetic heritage, and the Great Spirit. The Great Spirit is the divine being that transcends all boundaries and embodies the collective power of the children of Adam.

The Great Spirit spoke to Moses through the burning bush. This was an awesomely-inspiring manifestation of divine presence. The Great Spirit commanded him to approach Pharaoh the king of Egypt. With his approach, demand the release of the Great Spirit’s people from bondage.

Fulfillment and Oppression of African Peoples

This encounter signified the awakening of Moses’ inner man and strength, which is the spiritual consciousness of a man. As a son of Adam type-hero, Moses represented the embodiment of ancestral wisdom. He embodied resilience, and the capacity to lead his people out of oppression. The Great Spirit spoke through the burning bush. And this affirmed Moses’ identity, reminded him of his roots, and bestowed upon him the divine authority to fulfill his purpose.

The Afrocentric lens of this scripture celebrates the interconnectedness of Moses’ journey with the collective African experience. Through Moses, we see the power of African people reclaiming their agency, challenging oppressive systems, and seeking liberation.

The Great Spirit’s call to “Let my people go” echoes the collective cry of African and Afro peoples today and throughout history. As they yearn to break free from the chains of slavery, colonization, and systemic injustice.

Spiritual and Physical Realms Symbolism

Furthermore, Exodus chapter 3 highlights the centrality of African spirituality in the liberation struggle. The burning bush, which also works as a symbol of the Divine presence of the Eternal Father. This evokes the sacredness of nature (the bush).

And connects nature to the interconnectedness between the spiritual and physical realms (fire and the bush). It emphasizes the importance of communing with the ancestors, drawing strength from the divine forces, and invoking the power of African cosmology in the pursuit of justice and freedom.

In conclusion, Exodus chapter 3, approached through an Afrocentric lens, serves as a testament to the unconquerable spirit of African peoples. It inspires a deep sense of pride, resilience, and determination in the face of adversity.

It calls upon us and all people to honor our heritage. Calling us to embrace our divine calling. Also to stand in solidarity with all those who seek liberation and justice. Through the story of Moses and the burning bush, we are reminded of the timeless truth that African spirituality and ancestral wisdom provide a guiding light on the path to freedom.

The Land of Shem

Unfortunately for us who trusted and went along with modern theology and scripture, unbeknownst to us all, all of this story takes place in the land of Shem. The land of Shem is otherwise known as the continent of Africa. The land of Canaan is in the southern parts of Afrika.

This is the land given to the house of Akobe, and to their fathers, Isaaka and Abram. 

Old maps are confirming the way, the Spirit of the Great Creator is leading the way. He is toppling lies and things of no profit.
