Discussion for Isaiah 20:4

  • Rev. Buddy Larrier on Isaiah 20:4
    My question is, did this event really happened or was the writers of the King Version trying to justify what occured during the 14th century to African people and the transatlantic slave trade. Because if the Isaiah 20:4 did happened it ment that God put African people through the same experience the second time.
