Greetings empress and Carribean Queen
To answer the I's question I man find more truth in griots. However being that reasoning has taken such heights among Jah Idren, InI have been placed in a point of prooving all things. When proof is required of a scholar, they instantly demand some type of recorded history as proof, to display as a form of knowledge.
Now as far as "Semetic scribes" are concerned is simple word play to I. InI know that all roots tie and begin in Ifrica/Africa. If a Semite trace his/her roots, they will be in Africa.
Africa is my root, my center, and there is no way around the fact for InI.
But getting back to the question, one must reason with literature based on Yeshua, if InI wish to talk about Yeshua. As far as personal expiereinces go, I do feel that an author can put his personal twist on a story. That I feel is a poetic license, which so many scribes are all to readily to take.
That being said, I lion feel that no matter how illustrative the description becomes of a certain character, the main points must stay fully intact, or else the scribe looses his/her authenticity, and credibility. In other words, such a scribe would be known as a liar.
Personally I was told by an elder in Rastafari, "that the older the book is, the more truth the I's will find in it". Therefore I read the book of "MARK" as a more accurate description of Yeshua when I do I studies.
Jah blessings among the I sistren
