The Red Heifer

Alice C. Linsley

The Biblical priesthood appears to have originated among the peoples of the Nile Valley when the green Sahara was able to sustain herds of long horned cattle. Cattle were first domesticated in the Upper Nile Valley about 15,000 years ago. The term for cow nag (Wolog, Fulani), nagge (Hausa), ning (Angas, Ankwe) and ninge (Susu) corresponds to the Egyptian ng.

The words edom, odum and adam are derived from the same root dm and originally referred to the red clay that washed down to the Upper Nile from the Ethiopian highlands. These soils have a cambic B horizon. Chromic cambisols have a strong red brown color. Abraham's Horite people were known to have a distinctive red skin tone. Esau and David are described as red. As a descendant of these red ancestors, Jesus likely had a red skin tone.

Red and black Nubian cattle herders

This is the original context from which the priesthood spread into southern Europe, India, and the ancient Near East. The red Nubians, some of whom were Abraham's ancestors, believed that life is in the blood. In their creation stories, the first man was made from the red soil of the Upper Nile. He is Adam or Ha-dam, meaning "the Blood." Blood was not only the substance of life, it was also the substance by which the people received cleansing through the ministry of their priests. This is why the red calf was the preferred sacrifice for purity.

Aaron created the Golden Calf, a representation of Horus, the divine "son" of the Creator. The image incorporated the sun and would have been a representation of the divine overshadowing or appointment of the Calf of God. Below is picture of what it would have looked like.

The calf is suggestive of Horus as a child. Horus' anthropomorphic form is either as a adult male or more usually as a boy wearing the sidelock typical of royal Egyptian youth. Horus as a boy is often shown on cippi dominating crocodiles and serpents. Consider this in light of the Woman, the Child, and the Dragon in Revelation 12.

Consider the red heifer (Numbers 19:9) that stands as a perpetual sacrifice. The red heifer is sacrificed and burned outside the camp and the ashes used for "water of lustration."  Lustration means to purify by a propitiatory offering or other sacred ceremony. After the completion of the Second Temple, the ashes of the red heifer were available for people who came to the temple. At the entrance to the Women's Court, there was a stone vessel called the kelal which held ashes of the red heifer. The ashes were mixed with water and used for purification ceremonies.

The association of blood and purity

The Hebrew root meaning pure is thr and it corresponds to the Hausa/Hahm word for clean: toro, and to the Tamil word for holy: tiru. All are related to the proto-Dravidian word fro blood: tor. The sacrificing priesthood was found among all these peoples.

The color red represented blood and life among the ancient Nilotes. The Horite priests regarded the red heifer as a representation of Horus, the "son" of the Creator, born miraculously of Hathor. She is shown with cow horns cradling the sun. This indicates overshadowing by the Creator, whose emblem was the Sun. Hathor's totem was the cow and she is shown in Nilotic shrines holding her infant in a stable. Hathor and Horus are expressions of the earliest Messianic expectation among Abraham's Nilo-Saharan ancestors.

The perpetual sacrifice of the red heifer is older than the Levitical priesthood. It pertains to Abraham's Nilo-Saharan cattle-herding ancestors and speaks of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation. Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? (Hebrews 9:11-14)

Unfortunately, there are Christians who fail to recognize that Jesus' crucifixion and glorious resurrection have fulfilled all the archetypes of the Old Testament. The Reverend Clyde Lott, a Pentecostal cattle breeder from Mississippi, is breeding red heifers to export to Israel to establish a breeding line of red heifers in the hope that this will prepare the way for the construction of the Third Temple and ultimately the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.  


  1. Greetings Dear Researcher,

    I recently posted the following to Dr. Bernard Leeman (via despite initially coming across your research first:

    It is by "chance" that I came across your research.

    As there are so very few research authors that are inclined present the seemingly complex realities that are our genetic, linguistic, religio/cultural origins in East Africa, to include its astounding adaptation on its trek into West Africa and surrounding areas outside of the continent.

    All while retaining its East African origin "markers".

    Earlier this week, while on the internet I came across a Blog with extensive research papers by Ms. Alice Linsley and there is where I came across some of your work, as well.

    I view the so-called hBRw renderings and its poor translation via biased theologians passing as historians is a language of merely descriptive references from a certain time period (after 450 B.C.).

    Nubian and other culturally-like peoples of various classes (Nobility, Non-Nobles), Mariner Merchants (PaNehsj/FaNuki/PeNgai or possibly later known a Phoenician type) Trade Guilds/Crafts/Artisans (Architects/Stonemasons from but not exclusive to Pa/Nekhen in modern Sudan, Gold/Coppersmiths, etc...).

    Many of these language roots (Ng/Nk/Nh/aNk/uNg) span the entire breath of the entire continent and that which their ancient colonists landed, throughout the world.

    If the heavens are the lofty mountainous regions or Ancient East Africa from which descended downward from these sacred heights as Gods, then yes, we have the intentionally coded reference "language" of hebrew vaguely describing such pronouncements of Pharaoh to Joseph, "I am Pharaoh" is rendered as thus: אני (Ani/Anu/Eni) or as the name of the God of Moses: "I am" : אנכי (Anok/Engei/Ankh/'NoK/Anak).

    Hence we have: Anunaki, Anunna, Anunnaku, Ananaki colonists of Turkey, Sumeria, South India (not outer space but from the lofty heights), Engei of the Maasai, Anu/Ani of the Book of Coming Forth from Darkness into Light, the Ankh from Egypt, aNkhen of Sudan (same Guild of Ancient Zimbabwe and the extremely ancient stone works in South Africa attributed to the Anu.Naki but NOT outer space aliens), the nile valley Nok colonists of Nigeria (i.e.: the Igbo of Enugu), Etc...

    All, Men "A" of the Heavenly regions (Mountainous East Africa or Elevated places) expert in the celestial and terrestrial sciences and thus in each seperate class/caste were regarded as "Nok", exalted be it as Shepherds, Builders (Imhotep of Nekhen, Sudan became defied), Merchants, Priests, Scribes, etc... Anok, Enkai, Pa.Nehsji, Neh....

    Pastoral Shepherds of the very sacred Zebu (consider Bauval & Brophy) which formed a very large Dynastic class (Za or Dj - Dynasty of/ 'MBi, aMPi, uMBy, oMBi - Oxen) from pre-pharaonic times unto the modern era all along East Africa (Dj/bouti, Za/MBia, Zi/MbiV/Wh, etc...) to include Madagascar (the earliest Dynasty was the Saka/Lava or Saka/Lawai or Saka/Levi) that regard the shepherd as Andryombi or 'Ntr/'MBi - the Lords Oxen, Oxen lord or lord of the Oxen.

    Mind you, God Almighty in the Malagasy language is Andriamanitra, which we clearly seen as: aNTR/aMen/aNTR - lord/AMEN/lord. I think that the "A" as prefix in certain application of early Nubian glyph offerings represents, "Man" or in the likeness of "Mankind" but of a specific class/occupation.

    The entire sacred bovine language elements/roots of the Malagasy language is East African (via oneness that was Sudan; all the way down to South Africa, to include all of the regions/peoples in between of this class) as genetic DNA sampling has mirrored this confluence of single culture, as well.

    Lastly, if you have not read " Canaan, Oops Wrong Country" by Dr. Avner Ramu, please consider getting a copy via Amazon books.

    A tour de force of the East African origins of what is regarded as the exclusive origins of Hebrew peoples.
