    Default Bob Marley was Jewish

    http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/1236...-jewish-father

    So when we learned that Marley’s father, Norval, from whom Marley was estranged, was the son of Ellen Broomfield, a white Jewish Syrian Jamaican (beat that!), it made some sense. Norval Marley was born in Jamaica in 1885 (although the record is disputed) and, by the time he paired up with Marley’s mother Cedella, he was said to have been 60 years old. Norval Marley’s relationship with Cedella didn’t last long and he died of a heart attack when Marley was 12.

    Cha, this explains all of Preacher Marley's references to Zion.



    Happily, Marley accepted Christ.

    No it doesn't. Rastafarianism is just a kind of a hybrid. I doubt his dad influenced that faith.

    I am aware of the errors of Rastafarianism.

    But Rastafarianism did incorporate Jewish law into their beliefs.

    Yes, they were fraught with errors; but even in their errors, their use of the bible (even if used erroneously) made the music happy.

    Marley, before he died, converted to Orthodox Christianity.
