Abstract

 

In this paper traditional culture, beliefs and religious practices of the Kuku tribes of the South Sudan are compared with the Hebrew culture. It is shown that there is almost identical pattern even to minute details. Even in the way of corruption they are similar. It is suggested that a historical common contact theory or information exchange theory could not possibly explain such close similarity. We are thus led to the only alternative of common source, i.e. God did reveal himself to Kukus in a way similar to the Hebrews through a special revelation. Can this be true? We examine such a possibility based on the biblical prophecy.
